A case of FGM is reported in England every 109 minutes

LONDON Children's charity Plan UK has warned of the alarming scale of the "hidden danger threatening girls at home and around the world." The latest figures reveal that a case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is recorded in England every 109 minutes.

In 2015, 2,421 cases of FGM were recorded in England from April to September, according to the government's Health and Social Care Information Centre. Despite those numbers, there has never been a successful prosecution for FGM in the UK.

It's not a sin, it shouldn't be a crime to be a girl.

2. "I hate people sometimes."

Please don't.

It will be people -- good people -- who finally put an end to this horror.

3. Hence the "sometimes"

"Sometimes" people need a good ass kicking.
"Sometimes" people are awesome.
