毛里塔尼亚女性催肥英文写作Leblouhgavage[1]毛里塔尼亚,女性自幼开始被强迫进食,有的从5岁开始。在传统观点看来女性肥胖被认为是值得骄傲的,特别是在农村地区盛行此观点。其来源于柏柏尔人的传统观点,催肥使得女性获得更多的婚姻机会,在当地看来身体肥硕是财富的象征。这种做法可以追朔到11世纪。2008年该国政变后这种行为又大量出现。[2]

名为"使变胖者"的老年妇女强迫小女孩吃喝大量的食物和饮品,如果女孩呕吐,还要吃掉自己的呕吐物[2],如果她们不肯吃饭就对她们体罚。一种体罚方法是用2根木条夹四肢。典型的事例是1个6岁大的女孩每天被迫喝20升骆驼奶再吃2杯黄油,黄油里混杂着2千克被捣碎的小米[2][3]

有的毛里塔尼亚青年一代男性对此持否定态度[3]

    • "Girls as young as 5 and as old as 19 had to drink up to five gallons of fat-rich camel’s or cow’s milk daily, aiming for silvery stretch marks on their upper arms. If a girl refused or vomited, the village weight-gain specialist might squeeze her foot between sticks, pull her ear, pinch her inner thigh, bend her finger backward or force her to drink her own vomit. In extreme cases, girls died.
    The practice was known as gavage, a French term for force-feeding geese to obtain foie gras."
