CAN SOMEONE PLS MAKE THIS STOP!!!

I'm talking about these bizarre and wicked cultures that target women, and never the men. In the Mursi tribe in Ethiopa, as a sign of pride and identification for the women,  a huge circle will be made through the  lower lip of the ladies, with no lower front teeth. Most times to be able to wear the lip ring, a couple of the lower front teeth are yanked out.
 
In the modern world, it seems that the Mursi tribe in Ethiopia are battling a common dilemma. Their lip plates, and the cultural identity and political independence they signify, are a source of great pride for these people, but at the same time they acknowledge that this ancient practice, long since abandoned by other tribes, could point to their backwardness. Today, many young girls have started to choose not to stretch their lips, despite being referred to distastefully as ‘Kwegu’ – the name of a poor neighbouring tribe – for doing so. Such young women may face difficulty in finding a Mursi husband, yet they seem determined to leave the practice behind for a changing world.
