Re: to circ or not to circ

To answer the question as to WHY I drew comparisons that you feel were offensive.

Because they are very valid comparisons. Labial tissue is almost identical to prepuce tissue. It has similar function and carries similar problems. Because female circumcision is considered wrong in your culture, that comparison offends you. It doesn't offend me because I am a deeply logical person. I am also from Africa where both male AND female circumsicion is carried out at adulthood.

I hope you make the decision that is right for you and your family. Whichever way you choose. I commend you for questioning and researching your established norm.

I will bow out now because it is not my intention to offend. I just enjoy putting forward my views and this thread was quite civil so I chose to do it here.
