#2. Women Have Genital Integrity Rights
Circumcision of men is a practice that is legal, and despite that fact, it is illegal to cut any part of a female infant’s genitalia. Many parents fail to see the double standard in this custom. This is done without consent and only to male infants and children.
Many articles and research devoted to the study of female genitalia mutilation or (FGM) in other parts of the world as common practice, or “Female Circumcision” , questioning whether it is a rite of passage or a violation of rights without giving a thought to the fact that boys are victims to this practice today in America. Many argue it is still not as harsh as FGM.
