    There is very little to be said about female genital cutting that does not also apply to male and intersex genital cutting. Oh, except that 94% of the world ALREADY lives where FGM is illegal with no religious exemption.

    NOT ONE national medical association of doctors on earth (not even Israel’s) endorses routine male circumcision. As such it is cosmetic surgery.

    Holland’s very up-to-date policy says of circumcision: “KNMG is calling upon doctors to actively and insistently inform parents who are considering the procedure of the absence of medical benefits and the danger of complications.” They also say there is actually a good case to make it illegal.

    Is there audio/video of this event anywhere for download? I can’t find it, but I’d be interested in hearing the discussion, if possible.
