I actually didn't realise that it was such a contentious issue before. See, where I come from circumcision isn't the norm. It's purely a reliigous thing. So I didn't even realise that in the US, many men are circumcised and for non religious reasons.

When I talked to a Jewish friend who went to med school about it, she said that the foreskin is similar to the clitoral hood, so I can imagine what cutting it off would be like with a woman.

With regards to female circumcision, I know that it tends to be done near to puberty and in a way that permanantly damaged woman and put them at risk in serious health issues. And that female circumcision tends to be completely invasive mutilation, likened to a removal of the penis and testicles.

I didn't really want to get involved in the conversation as i said before because it's such a contentious issue and I don't know much about it, but I do think that people need more education on the issue, and also, there needs to be respect for religious beliefs, or we'll never get anywhere. It'll just be a loud noise in a the desert that never gets heard.

It's just so weird for me to suddenly be thinking that, as much fun as I have with it, Mister Happy may be a mere shadow of what he should be.
