Circ (be it male or female) is genital mutilation by definition.

I get what you're saying. Though if a parent chooses to circ I don't think it's mutilation. And again I'm pro-intact but pro-mind my own business too.

As far as the term, eh, it's subjective IMO and wiki isn't exactly the be all to end all in the medical community. If I remember correctly actual peer reviewed scientific items don't view circumcising as mutilation [on that I can't be 100% sure though because I just don't spend my time thinking that much about other penis' outside of this site anyway.]

Thanks for the hugs though. It really doesn't hurt me per say because like I said though my first son is circ'ed, he's perfect to me
