It’s not really mutilation, since it’s practically painless, and I have never once in my life thought “wow, my parents are terrible people for not letting me have foreskin. I bet I’m missing out on a lot.” No. No one thinks that ever. A circumcised penis is easier to keep clean, and in my opinion, better looking.
Sorry to be gross with penis details, I tried to be as serious as possible.

"It happens so fast… a snip, a little bit blood and that’s it… She didn’t cry even a drop… I guess it wasn’t painful for her." X
"Jay Kamara-Frederick doesn’t think of herself as ‘mutilated’. My mum didn’t do it to abuse me, she did it because of her culture." X
"A 36-year-old Ethiopian woman explained, I had the foreskin on my clitoris removed as a baby, just like my brother… Why does everyone say it is so terrible and that I should have problems from it?" X
"This means that even if parents understand the dangers and negative health impacts of cutting their daughter, they may still choose to do so because they perceive the benefits as outweighing the disadvantages. Those who support female genital cutting often believe that it is closely linked to cleanliness, virginity, healthiness, beauty and morality.” X
"I’m happy. My daughter is now clean…" X

intact101’s response is important because a lot of people really don’t get this. “I’m fine with it. Circumcised penises are better and more attractive anyway!” Women in countries that practice female genital cutting thought the same way. Many of them still do. 
People can try all the want to pretend that FGM is so different~ from MGM, but the cultural attitudes that keep both practices going are basically identical. 

Informative and enlightening.  But I’m mostly reblogging to say dfskle's post pisses me off.  ”No. No one thinks that ever.”  You really don’t have any grounds to speculate as to what “no one ever thinks,” especially as uninformed as you are.  If you haven’t suffered the negative effects of circumcision then that’s just a case of you being lucky…it still has an increased risk of erectile disorder, decreased sensitivity to the tip, etc.
The foreskin makes it harder to clean so cut it off?  My ears make the part of my head they inhabit harder to clean, so let’s cut them off.  Because simply moving skin to clean inside/behind/around it is too much for primitive men.  Enjoy your dried out dick because you don’t have any foreskin to keep it naturally lubricated and sensitive.

Yeah I get really heated about this shit.

*drops mike*

translation: “Hello!  I’m a feminist!  And appropriating the traumas of rape victims is very important to me.  They make such wonderful martyrs for my cause.  That is why I erase male victims of rape (they are so annoying and inconvenient to my cause, luckily I can ignore them the way the rest of society does without too much trouble, we all know only women get raped, right and we all know women NEVER rape men or other women).  So now I am using all female rape victims by men as mouthpieces, beause as I have said, they make such wonderful props and tools to feminists!  Remember rape is the only thing you are not allowed to make jokes about.  Whenever you make a rape joke, you make every rape victim ever (female remember) relieve HER rape.  Rape victims who use dark humour as a coping mechanism are not allowed: they do not exist.  Now whilst you must personally accept responsibility for rape by invalidating rape through rape jokes (but it’s fine for me to trivialise rape into everything a man does to me that I don’t like, no matter how non sexual it is) but rapists should not accept responsiblity for their actions: they do not rape because they know what they are doing is wrong but do it anyway, but because jokes that rely on the punchline being something shocking and terrible told them it was okay.  The same way every time you make a dead baby joke, you have told someone that it’s okay to kill their child.  We also know women never refer to being “fraped” but if they did they would be telling men it’s okay to rape women, because we all know men who hear phrases like “fraped” mean it’s a green light to rape a woman.”

Now if you excuse me, I need to drop the mike like I said something wonderfully profound.”

Fuck you for trying to help us prevent rape! What’s next, helping us when we’re in danger? When we had an accident? Damn you patriarchy! 

you cant win no matter what you do

"why is it easier to produce body armor than find a way to stop criminals with guns?"

What a horrible woman
Why is it easier for you to sit on your ass and whine instead of inventing anti-rape nailpolish?
Typical feminist, whining when people actually try to make things better instead of lifting a finger to do anything besides get paid to sit on her fat ass in her plushy apartment and bitch

Cat calling is not sexual violence
Cat calling is not rape
Cat calling is not a traumatic experience.

Stare rape is not a thing.
You cannot rape someone without touching them.

How fucking dare you trivialize a horrific experience by equating it to someone looking at you.
