Well I would run some cards that the accepted practice of fgm is a religous pratice and one that if the girls are without they are low and dirty. You can then Impact this with the facat that the girls and their families will noto give up the pratice which would negate all solvency

T: "public" = government with an F/X T standard, the health assistance has to be provided by state, either US or target countries, not some random NGO.

K: Cultural imperialism

CP: Fund Tostan programs only in countries that practice FGM (get this list ahead of time...), spending and "representing all SSAfricans as female mutilating savages ain't cool" as NBs - as written, that plan text implies that you fund in all countries in SSA, but FGM isn't practiced in all of them. Check this in cx of course, "so which countries will you fund Tostan programs in?" If they say all, you're golden. If they say only where FGM takes place, push them for details, ask them to specify which countries. If they can't, throw down some vagueness theory instead of the CP, since it's impossible to generate an estimate of the implications or expenses involved if you can't even know what the hell they're going to be doing. Not the worst abuse story ever, at least. Anyways, if they're really on the ball and give you a list in CX, then ditch this and you can start doing decent country specific disads.

 

And then on case...

 

generic solvency:

-The Tostan model has a 2-3 year timeframe in each village. This'll be key on the impact calc debate if you're running country specific disads instead of the CP.

-The Tostan model is designed for small communities with substantial intermarriage. What'll you do about the large urban centers where FGM is practiced?

-Tostan only enters communities that invite them. No effect in areas that are deeply committed to FGM, cf northern Senegal which has seen none of the success that Tostan saw in the south.

 

patriarchy adv:

-two card third world feminism K as case turn, just a link and an impact

-two card feminist rights talk K as a case turn, same as above (Tostan uses an educational program based on human rights)

-do you claim discursive impacts on here? if so, they make no sense - the west already finds FGM repugnant for the most part and what happens in round doesn't affect the SSAfricans' discourse one bit.

-communities doing Tostan don't stop FGM because they're convinced about the human rights of women or because they've decided to reject patriarchy - all the articles that interview actual Senegalese who decide to stop FGM after Tostan programs report that they stop because they're convinced by the health arguments.

-you don't solve patriarchy, you solve for a symptom of it - doesn't get you access to your sweet, sweet patriarchy impacts

 

dehum adv:

-Neg accesses through K, turns case. Neg impacts take priority anyways because you're dehumanizing SSAfricans with your rhetoric in round when you represent them as violent savages who need Western values imposed on them, whereas you only solve for the dehum impacts of FGM post plan.
