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.
