Well said, LW. Male circumcision and female genital mutilation are not comparable, other than they involve the genitals.
There are NO health reasons for female genital mutilation. It is done purely for misogynistic reasons and has ZERO benefits for the female. It has one great disadvantage, and can actually be the sole cause of serious health problems.
Proof, if proof were needed, that this subject is a male-female thing. How the hell a woman can condone the needless, ritualistic mutilation of - of all things, a baby, is totally beyond me.
