But, this isn't a debate thread or anyone asking for anyone else to show additional judgment. It was supposed to be a question where people could honestly answer how they felt, not another opportunity for intactivists to pick at those who don't agree with them.
Amen, and many clappy clappy emoticons

Again! But apparently it's okay because they would "never" say that to someone's face, however I guess it's okay to be rude, mean and forceful behind a computer screen because you don't have to feel the full brunt of actually hurting another human being.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I'm sorry but in addition, the whole "well if you feel guilty or are getting mad it's because you're insecure" Please, sometimes people are just butt holes frankly and mean about such things and other people call them out for it.

It's not often done in hospitals by professionals, but often by lay-people and in unsanitary conditions and to prevent something normal from happening unlike with males where this is SOME benefit considered by the AAP and medical community. Also, in comparison it's very different. The amount of skin taken during FGM is MUCH different than in RIC. JMO, but I get what you're saying, I just don't really agree.
oh no I think you're misunderstanding me, or I'm not writing my thoughts clearly.

I'm referring to a circ done in a medical facility, with pain meds, JUST like male circ.


and I am absolutely not referring to FGM - which is worlds different.

Where is female circumcision done in this way? I've never even heard of such a thing.

There are some (very limited) cultures where it is done. Very similarly to RIC, the clitoral hood is removed. In some cultures, the clitoris itself is left intact, just the hood removed.

I do see that as inherently and completely different than infibulation & more severe forms of FGM, which is I guess why, despite my own (and DP's) opinion to no circ. if we ever have a boy, I just cannot take the more forceful intactivists or their arguments seriously.
