Why is circumcision of boys accepted, but not circumcision of girls?
What Girls Said 4
I'd agree that circumcision should only be done with the consent of the person being circumcised. But there is a difference between male and female circumcision. Female circumcision is done so the female won't feel pleasure during sex. It will effect her sex life forever. Male circumcision can cause damage, but it's not the norm and it's not the intention behind it.

Female genital mutilation is far more life-changing than male circumcision, and the WHO is working to get it stopped. Maybe once it has succeeded it will start on male circumcision, which is an unnecessary procedure when carried out for purely cultural or religious reasons.

Circumcision is derived from religious tradition and can have health benefits. While some say it limits sexual pleasure, not enough to matter.
Clitoridectomy has no religious tradition except to oppress women, no health benefits and denies a women a lot of sexual pleasure. I do not intend to explore this further with you.
it's one of those "it has just always been like that" situations.
Well for one female circumcision is designed to eradicate sexual pleasure and usually causes chronic pain. Male circumcision is the removal of the foreskin and has no known affects on the male capability to enjoy sex.
I am circumcised , never had an issue with it. I find those who complain the most are women and uncircumcised men.
If you don’t agree with it, don’t have it done to your son. I choose not to have it done to my sons. Not because it’s cruel , it just not really needed. I don’t go on some SJW crusade. I mind my own business.
its all bad
I dont accept either of them...
