Breast Ironing Is Abuse. Period.

Trigger Warning – Girls abused because men can’t control themselves or be taught to respect girls.

“Did you know about this?
Woman health worker reports:
The United Nations (UN) says that Breast Ironing affects 3.8 million women globally.
People use large stones, hammer or spatulas that have been heated over scorching coals to compress the breast tissue of girls as young as 9 years old, not to be attractive to men.”

This practice is absolutely despicable. No one should put their life at risk for the satisfaction of others especially when the end result could be harmful.

This sickens me. Focus on the perpetrators not the victims.

I read about this a while ago, and am ashamed to say I’d forgotten about it. Reading about this has made me emotional. As a mother of a daughter I cannot imagine doing this to your child.

Why can’t they teach the children sex education and educate the boys and men to respect girls, instead of this barbaric practice? This is one of the worst things to witness, which I did when I researched it a while ago.
