The circumcision itself isn’t; it’s just child mutilation and an issue of children’s rights. The views on circumcision are a gender issue, however.
It is, indeed, a gender issue, when the concept of altering a female child’s genitalia is met with abhorrence while the altering of a male child’s genitalia is defended. This is terribly inconsistant.
Absolutely, as well as as an autonomy, religious/freedom from religion, and mutilation issue. Since like all things, it overlaps.
Definitely. It’s annoying to see people demonize FGM and then turn around and scream “RELIGIOUS/CULTURAL FREEDOM!” in defense of MGM (even though FGM is a cultural thing, too). Equality and genital integrity should apply to both sexes - not just one.
absolutely. I’d even go further and say we will see MORE equality of women when we stop inflicting trauma on males in their first days of life, which permanently and irreversibly alters the psyche.
no I view it an issue of child mutilation and religious abuse (sometimes)
