Do you think that infant male circumcision is a type of child abuse?
Do you agree that female circumcision or genital cutting is a condemnable and barbaric act?
Male circumcision --- Although this is a very controversial topic, but then also I will put some light on this issue. According to me when done medically by a professional doctor, it is right, whereas when done religiously by some unprofessional people, it is totally wrong and comes under child abuse. In order to learn it in a better way, read below:
What is male circumcision?
Medically, circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin from the penis known as prepuce. This procedure is done to prevent phimosis. Phimosis is contraction of the foreskin (prepuce) of the penis. Withphimosis, sex can be very painful and painful sex or intercourse is termed as dyspareunia.
Problem happens when it is done by religious people with no anesthesia usually with a sharp knife and completely out of hygiene. In these cases, many times they cut along the glans penis, the 'head' of the penis, which is not safe.
Circumcision done through a proper anesthetic surgeon perhaps is safe rather than by an unprofessional who has no idea upon what he is slicing.
People who are circumcised with proper means share no sexual issues and felt much less pain during the process. In no way, it affects sexual pleasure, and some people who had their circumcision after adult age, say it increases pleasure, since there is less skin and more contact to the glans penis.
Why male circumcision was done?
There is one more concept why this procedure is done. Historically speaking, male circumcision was done in areas of water scarcity, as it was difficult to keep the penis clean with the foreskin. Without the foreskin, it would be easier to clean with just a cloth.
Male circumcision was also done in regions with water scarcity and hot weather and it was done to avoid difficulty in urination.
On the other hand, when this procedure is applied to women, known as female circumcision or clitoridectomy, then yes, it is 100% abusive. It is used to deprive women from sexual pleasure, usually accompanied by another abusive procedure called infibulation, which is the stitch of the vagina, leaving a small (read very small) opening for the passage of urine and menstrual blood.
Female circumcision is nothing but psychopathic, barbaric, and cheap, a totally degrading concept that could have only been conjured by the most evil and sick minds.
The reason behind female circumcision is to cut off the girl's sexual pleasure so that she does not go against her parents' wish to decide her husband and so that she does not fall in love during adolescence and so that she does not desire or even fantasize another man after being married because she would not know clitoral sexual pleasure in the first place.
In Africa, they even cut the labia leaving only a small hole, so there is greatly reduced sexual pleasure. It is not done by some remote communities, but it is very common in many communities in Africa.
They also do a stitching as well in outer labia to leave a permanent small hole for passage of urine and menstrual flow and it remains like that for life. There is so much inhumanity that humans inflict on other human beings.
Female circumcision is a horrifying and condemnable act, which was hardly talked in international arena even until a few years back.
