We, as a society, are meant to love children. If I was to go and tear the nails off each of my child’s fingers I’d be roundly condemned and imprisoned (and probably best I were for my own safety!). Female circumcision is roundly, and justly, condemned as an abusive practice. But male circumcision?? Oh that’s ok, isn’t it? Yeah, just dandy, especially in America.
Male circumcision has some benefits, and there is continuing talk of expanding it’s use, such as here.
