I'm a man that was circumcised as a baby and I really wish I wasn't but more importantly, I was denied my choice to keep a functional, healthy, erotogenic body part. I'm not saying I'm bitter or angry. For me, this is a human rights issue:
A ritual/religious pin-prick on a baby girl's genitals, to draw one drop of blood, is called Type 4 female genital mutilation (FGM) and has been illegal since March 1997.
ALL forms of FGM - equal to or less invasive then male circumcision - are illegal for ANY reason, including religion. Yet, a parent can remove a baby boy's foreskin for ANY reason including, "just because" and "I think it looks better". This isn't equal rights under the law but a violation of the 14th Amendment's "Equal Protection Clause", the "Universal Declaration of Human Rights", adopted by the United Nations and the "Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms".
Should parents have the choice to cut their children's genitals?
