Your thread focuses on female gm and rightly so; it’s an abhorrent practice and one that should be condemned far more than it is at present. And, along with an educational programme focused on those individuals and societies that still practice it, anyone here in the West who condones and/or engages in it should feel the full force of the law – imprisonment and/or deportation where appropriate.

But let’s not forget that there is also male genital mutilation in the form of circumcision. Widely accepted and wildly condoned under the banner of an out-dated ‘religious’ tradition. It may not have the same devastating effects as female genital mutilation but there are effects and the practice does need to be addressed.

There’s quite a lot of research now being undertaken on the effects of circumcision but a (baby) boy who is circumcised has been given no choice in the matter. That surely goes against everything that Western society and Western civil rights stand for.
