    And yet circumcision remains.

    • Posted by WarsInAction, at Reply

      can everyone agree both are bad? For one it is not with consent in either case which should be reason enough to ban it. Moreover, they both leave a perminant scar which is horrific.

    • Posted by lag33338, at Reply

      Those motherfuckers, they’re shitting for religion. What they want’s to translate their alleged beliefs into the absolute control of women and their enslavement.

    • Posted by mewabe4, at Reply

      WarsinAction: the problem is hypocritical women who will not agree to that…although very few women undergo this barbarian procedure in the US and tens of millions of boys are mutilated, they have absolutely no sympathy or concern for these male infants and insist on claiming special victimhood status. The double standard (in so many areas, including the legal system that allows male mutilation) just gets old after a while…don’t you think?

      Wrong. There are more (Christians 2 billion) than Muslims (1.3 billion). Google is your friend.

      But the Old testament has influenced Christians and it is one of the reasons why it is so popular in Christian countries. Only a fool would deny that.

    Of course Hannah wants to ignore male mutilation aka circumcision.

    • Posted by Mending Wall, at Reply

      +asaenvolk the most common is type one but that still includes removal of the clitoris in most circumstances. Type 2 includes the labia and type 3 is almost everything. All of which is more brutal. Dont get me wrong, no one should get circumcised but people lose points when they say its the same.

      Type I, also called clitoridectomy: Partial or total removal of the clitoris and/or the prepuce.
      Type II, also called excision: Partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora, with or without excision of the labia majora. The amount of tissue that is removed varies widely from community to community.
      Type III, also called infibulation: Narrowing of the vaginal orifice with a covering seal. The seal is formed by cutting and re-positioning the labia minora and/or the labia majora. This can take place with or without removal of the clitoris.
      Type IV: All other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes, for example: pricking, piercing, incising, scraping or cauteriza – See more at:

    First get rid of circumcision.

    • Posted by 853Nynn, at Reply

      +Lavrentivs but why FGM must come first too?

    • Posted by Lavrentivs, at Reply

      Because FGM has worse consequences. Even if done with clean equipment etc. FGM can often include cutting off the clitoris, labia minor or the the worst form, where the labia majora is cut and then sown together, leaving only a small hole for urin and menstruation blood.

      The complications arising from that procedure or when the new husband want to cut his wife open for sex on the wedding night, makes circumsicion look like cutting your toe nails.

      I don’t like either, but FGM is the bigger problem here.

    • Posted by 853Nynn, at Reply

      +Lavrentivs but MGM is practiced on more people. Doesn’t matter which is worse on side effects. The needs of the many outweigh the few. The are both terrible. But you can’t go on trying to solve Cancer when there is an outbreak of another disease that is currently killing millions more. Both are bad but you need to solve the problem at hand not a minor one.

    • Posted by Lavrentivs, at Reply

      Of course the effects matter, as does the numbers. The biggest health risk with male circumsicion is potential tetanus due to non-sterile equipment.

      When it comes to women, I’ll let the WHO speak for me:

      Two practices that are not equally prevalent deserve equal attention? Female mutilation is very uncommon in western civilizations, while a ton of men are circumcised against their will. Making your issue more important just encourages me to ignore it.

    Let me make it clear I am in no way diminishing FGM (it is a barbaric practice), but why isnt there equal outrage for circumcision.
    Both involve the mutilation of children, and should both be illegal. What right does anyone have to permanently a child’s body without their permission.

      “Let me make it clear I am in no way diminishing FGM (it is a barbaric
      practice), but why isnt there equal outrage for circumcision.”

      I’m circumsized, wouldn’t mind if my parents skipped it but no pain or any adverse effects really. Now FGM is a whole other ball field. So the outrage is someone proportional to the damage.

      Although if you don’t value women a minor inconvenience that is unnecessary is the same as chronic life long pain etc etc.

      Pretty much. Sex is boring for me. Circumsized, above average penis, and just rather do other things.

    • Posted by Jess, at Reply

      I agree. Hypocritical that there is always outrage from Americans (mostly females) about FGM but no outrage about male circumcision. Then they say how bad other people’s cultures are for practicing FGM while they fail to see that male circumcision is culturally acceptable in the U.S. In Europe and other countries they don’t practice male circumcision hardly at all.

    Male or female, the cutting of a child’s genitals, ESPECIALLY for fucked up religious reasons, should be banned.

    • Posted by S Friedman, at Reply

      did you choose it_ Look if you want to be circumcised as an adult, then go for it, go nuts. But to take away the foreskin and therefore remove thousands of sensitive areas for religious reasons from someone who cannot make the decision for themselves should be illegal

    • Posted by Brock Schowalter, at Reply

      Mischa Romo I’ll say that I do love being able last long and make my partner orgasm multiple times in one session. I still don’t think I could have it done to my child though. The only reasoning I can think of in favor of having my kid circumcised is that, while I understand I’ve been mutilated, I’m weirdly grateful to have one less thing to worry about as far as my outer appearance goes since idiots here in America make fun of or are grossed out by natural penises.

    • Posted by Eric Price, at Reply

      your dad is probably lying to himself… He probably could go long, because not having it would definitely desensitize it, but he was 16 so…??? He probably choose circumcision in hope to fit in or something ridiculous. If you are taught to properly clean and use our foreskin it is much better to have it. You put your gun in a sheath or gun case when you are not using it, right? Circumcision is WRONG. If someone wants it done they can do it when they are 16 or make their own decision. We have relatively clean running water everywhere in America, disease and infection are not big issues, it is draconian tradition of repression.

I listened to my mom and my husband, my husband is circumcised and my mother had my brother circumcised. It is awful. It’s a sick practice that needs to be stopped. More people need to speak out and make people aware of how awful both MGM and FGM are

      Having under gone this procedure myself in my mid 30’s due reasons I won’t go into

      circumcision significantly reduced sensation.
      (which I knew would be the case having read up on everything I could find before agreeing to undergo the procedure, due to stress related health issues).

    all circumcision male/female should be restricted to age 18 and only preformed with the consent of the recipients.

    • Posted by mb1968nz, at Reply

      If it needs to be removed for medical reasons then it should, most uncircumcised males have no problems. In New Zealand, less than 10 per cent of newborns are circumcised and public hospitals no longer offer the procedure. The Royal Australasian College of Physicians, the British Medical Association, the Canada Pediatric Society, the South African Medical Association, the Royal Dutch Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and medical authorities in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland are all either against circumcision or do not recommend it. added link

    • Posted by Mokulen, at Reply

      In Canada, it isn’t covered by health care because it isn’t a necessary procedure. With Education, it is in the decline. We can only hope that in a few generations it will be illegal or not practiced.

    • Posted by mb1968nz, at Reply

      Mokulen hopefully its a practice in decline…I would be against making MGM illegal…the recipient should be at an age where they are old enough to make a informed decision and most importantly give consent.

    • Posted by Mokulen, at Reply

      I missed that point, you’re right. It shouldn’t be illegal for consenting adults.

    Yet male mutilation is fine and widespread. No mutilation to anyone. Male babies are circumcised when they are few months old, where is their right to decide for themselves, where is the outrage for their unnecessary mutilation?

    • Posted by emailchrismoll, at Reply

    • Posted by Kroum Mihaylov, at Reply


      Not only is it ok to routinely and systematically mutilate male babies, but it is socially accepted to say you prefer your partner be circumcised or to say that intact penises are “weird looking” or “gross”.

    • Posted by A D, at Reply

      I will say they’re not comparable as far as physical effects–FGM is worse there, (though, not to imply that male circumcision doesn’t hurt or can’t have nasty side effects).

      Ethically, though, they are the same: both involve the mutilation of children’s genitals, robbing them of their autonomy for tradition, altering their future sex lives, and causing them great pain in the moment. It’s evil and I can’t believe male circumcision is legal and widely accepted.

    Hahahaha. I see some of the comments saying cutting a baby’s foreskin off isn’t mutilation. Of course people who have had it done and done it to their children will TRY to justify their parents reasons for mutilating them. Sick fucks

    • Posted by Wasp, at Reply

      That’s not sick, it’s just a tragic way to cope with the fact your parents did something really wrong and disrespectful to you, that you can’t ever fix. That’s why their supporting arguments are so weird and farfetched.
      It becomes sick when they’re so in that mindset that they use these arguments to circumsise their own sons once they’re born. And sadly that happens almost every time.

    • Posted by Raziel354, at Reply

      I like the idea that there is an increase of religious freedom in this generation, most parents now wait for their children to grow up to decide if they want to be part of religious practice. Knew a guy that got baptized at 14 because his parents wanted him to decide if he wanted to do it or not. Most likely genital mutilation will become a thing of the past in the years to come, but we need to start by calling people off on their bs reasons and realize how messed up it is.

  18. Posted by Aaron Storm, at Reply

    FGM and “circumcision” MGM are still the same.
    Both are done to “fit in”
    Both are done because the parents are cut.
    Both remove normal, healthy, erogenous tissue.
    Both are human rights violations.
    Both are genital mutilation.
    Both are child abuse.
    Both are unnecessary.
    Both reduce the pleasure the person will be able to have.
    Both are often done without the person’s consent.
    Both are done to babies/children.
    Both can decrease sensitivity or take it away entirely.
    Both are defended by supposed health benefits.
    Both are defended by religion.
    Both are defended by custom.
    Both are defended by conformity.
    Both are defended by what the opposite sex thinks about it.
    Both have effects that their supporters try to minimize.
    Both are often done without painkillers, so they are extremely painful.
    Both almost always cause severe damage.
    Both have caused death.
    And finally…
    I’m strongly against both (and always will be).
