Hey gang, I wasn't quite off the grid but I did take a break. Fret not though, Tough Love is back today with a very very very important episode about FGM or female genital mutilation. Download and share.
At the age of seven, Somali-born nurse Hoda Ali was subjected to type 3 female genital mutilation (FGM), alongside her six-years-old sister.
At the age of eleven, with Somalia on the bring of civil war, Hoda started experiencing severe medical complications as a consequence of the cutting. She was in and out of hospital for the following six years and eventually ended in the UK as a refugee. The numerous complications still affect her today, over thirty years later.
In this episode Hoda and I talk about how we all bleed the same colour, the importance of calling things by their name, and why she thinks she’s the luckiest girl alive.
Went to an illegal backyard dinner last night. Illegal fun (including tequila) was had by consenting adults. Please don’t report us.
No live show today as I wanted to give my guys a four day weekend with MLK Day on Monday.
Anyone got good weekend plans?

We posted our Big Tech compilation video in the content section about an hour ago. Think this moment with PT sums up so much of what’s wrong with society right now...
