"Circumcision of the Female"

Recommended Posts

"I am an American woman who received a clitoridectomy when I was a child. BlueCross/BlueShield covered clitoridectomies until 1974. It was a cruel thing to do to a little girl. I see no difference between what happened to me and what happened to my brothers who have been circumcised. It is all cruel and unnecessary. Pure fashion. Nothing holy. Nothing medically helpful. Just fashion. And business." ~ Patricia R. <[email protected]>.

"Circumcision makes women cleaner, promotes virginity and chastity and guards young girls from sexual frustration by deadening their sexual appetite." ~ Mrs. Njeri, a defender of female genital

mutilation in Kenya.

"Of course I shall have them circumcised exactly as their parents, grandparents and sisters were circumcised. This is our custom." ~ An Egyptian woman, talking about her young daughters.

One Woman's View --

"If I talk to women about circumcision and they don't seem to get it, then I make it personal. Sometimes I tell a story. (This probably works best woman to woman.) I'll tell them to: -

Imagine that you are admitted to a hospital for some minor surgery. On waking up from the anesthesia, you realize that your inner labia and the hood over your clitoris have been cut off.

When you confront your doctor, he explains that the tissue that was removed was redundant and not necessary for sexual functioning.

He goes on to say that you will be much easier to clean and have less odor, there will be less chance of infection, and he felt that you would look 'better,' more aesthetic.

He says that when he told all of the 'risks' and 'benefits' to your family, they gave informed consent for the procedure.

How would you feel?

Now imagine that you were awake and resisting, but they did it anyway.

If they don't get it right away, they usually will later, when they are alone."

He pops up every now and then and posts stuff showing how our society is hypocritical as a whole because we circumicise males but find it barbaric when it's done to women.

well, our society is hypocritical.. but in this matter i dont think hypocrisy is so prevalent. In this case, circumcision of the female is COMPLETELY unnecessary. You are actually REMOVING a piece of tissue containing nerve ends which stimulate. The male equivalent would be like removing the entire tip of the penis, not just the foreskin, which is removed for many reasons, the most important of which is hygiene.

it's rather ridiculous for women to have something cut OFF, aside from surplus skin. Not equivalent in the least.
