    Yeah, too bad infant circumcision isn't actually a medical operation but a cosmetic/religious one. The closest thing to it is braces, and even those have more medical value than genital mutilation.
    You don't exaggerate much, do you?

    Actually, that term means something - clitoridectomy for females, castration and (IMO) circumcision for males. If cutting off a natural part of a baby boy's penis without his consent isn't mutilation, then what is?

    genital mutilation- any type of cutting or removal of all or some of the genital organs.


    What were you saying again?

    It's called circumcision. It is not the same as female mutilation. If you can't see that, your are being obtuse.

    It's certainly not quite as gruesome as female genital mutilation, but it's not that far off. Painful consequences can arise, especially if the mohel is performing circumcision in the "traditional" way, in which the foreskin is orally removed by the mohel. Infants have contracted herpes and died because of this practice.

    Surely, you can at least agree that circumcision shouldn't be performed in such a filthy and dangerous way.

    Besides the clitoral hood do you know the other two things they have to remove to make the woman unable to lubricate and lose the same amount of sensitivity as removing the foreskin causes in men? I bet you don't.

    Not only is there controversy in Europe but recently in the US:

    "A coalition of Cleveland Jewish leaders are protesting a graphic mural painted on a gas station wall that depicts a rabbi performing a controversial circumcision ritual.

    "Anti-Defamation League regional director Anita Gray, and Cheryl Davis, chair of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Community Relations Committee, slammed the mural as anti-Semitic."

    We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq.

    That is pure antisemitism. Which has nothing to do with the discussion you necro'd.
