Anyay, the latest installment, which discusses female circumcision, got me to thinking:
There are limits to Multiculturalism's mandate of tolerance. No one suggests cannibalism or genocide requires respect and protection as a cultural practice. So the question orbits the issue of human rights and whether these women are being oppressed.Clearly a balance must be struck between accepting and promoting multiculturalism and certain rights that many of us believe we hold as human beings.
But where is the line drawn?
What implications might it have for practices in our 'own' culture?
Go and read Ryan's post and see what you think. It asks an interesting question at the end, something I had never thought about but in fact is a very good point. Let me know what you think.
And Ryan, how about a little something for Cabal?
