Ron Low replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"That report is not only absurdly biased, it's grossly inaccurate.   77% of the present prevalence of circumcision among adults.  The present infant circumcision rate is 55%.   Most of the world does not circumcise.…"

"^^ Female genital mutilation is far more barbaric ^^   WHEN IT IS.  But NOT when it's NOT.    MOST FGM affects the hood only (most of the victims alive today are in Indonesia and Malaysia) and in places like Egypt it is done…"

"^^ mother's aversion at handling her infant son's penis in order to properly clean it. ^^   You'd think she'd be averse to that gnarly wound and the feces that got into that.    But an intact boy's genitals…"
