I did not expect to find a post which discussed whether or not female genital mutilation should be understood through the lens of cultural relativism at feministing.

But there it was. 

A few days later, I came across a blog entry criticizing the attempt of defense lawyers to explain that a man killing his wife should not be considered murder because of cultural relativism. Dawg’s blog gives a great explanation of the concept of cultural relativism and how it was meant to be used. 

There are some commenters and writers over at feministing who would do well to read it.
