“I've known about genital mutilation for years! Anyone who cares about humanity knows about it! Anyone who doesn't could care less to begin with.”

“I'm sure there are plenty of people who have never heard of it that would be disgusted and care once they heard about it. Not everyone is aware of all the problems in the world. I'm sure there are issues you've never heard of, as well.”

“Look at the representation of the African woman as basically a white American stereotype of Africans of the most offensive order. This is a form of sensationalism crafted solely to give the artist more exposure through creating a controversial, offensive representation of a serious problem being carried out in tribes in Africa. What is the relevance of this white, privileged woman cutting into this cake and laughing about it?

Genital mutilation should not be a source of humor. I can't understand anyone defending this as a vehicle for raising awareness of a horrific practice. This could have been accomplished in a way that is RESPECTFUL TO THE VICTIMS.”

“I'm amazed at the number of people defending this work and the behavior of the Minister and attendants. This makes a mockery of the subject of gential mutiliation. IT'S A STUNT!”

“I'm 47. I have no issues with the culture of youth. When I look at a young, beautiful woman, I just think "How wonderful it is to be young! How wonderful it WAS to be young and beautiful!" And I hope they won't make the mistakes I made. That's the hardest part about aging is wanting to go back and be smart the second time around.”
