Circumcision? adult content

So all this talk about male circumcision makes me think. If some find it ok to circ their sons, why not their daughters? I circ'd my son 14 yrs ago when I was undereducated and a dumb. Would I do it now? I don't really think so. So my question is if it's ok to cut off a male foreskin, why isn't it ok to cut of a females labia? It is done in other countries and the world is outraged by it. So why not so much for a boy?
If you say it's mutilation of a female, why not mutilation of a male?
I by the way do not condone either practice, just curious why the double standard? Any thoughts?

  • the females are tortured because no pain meds are used. plus when men are circumsized it doesn't effect pleasure but when females are circumsized they may no longer feel pleasure which means they can't orgasm either. i know all this cause this African chick on a past season of America's Top Model had gone through the procedure & she spoke freely of it.

  • Pain meds are not routinely used for males either.

  • I see where you are coming from, one form is genital mutilation, the other common practice. Why is that? I'm just glad we didn't have boys so it's not something I had to worry about. Our niece's little boy is going in for this fourth surgery this month because of his circumcision. )c:

  • Well jewish people do it bc of religion. Everyone has their own reason for doing it.. My reason for doing it is its cleaner. My son doesnt have to worry about infection. A girl doesnt need anything like that done bc she has no chance of infection if she had a chance oinfection im sure people would do it to girls.

  • There are a few different KINDS of female circumcision. Sometimes they cut off just the clitoris, sometimes they only take off the Labia major &/or minor & then sew it up...sometimes they take all three of them off. There is more info about it on the web....
