Until they can admit such a thing, I will always be traumatized about what happened to me, as it feels they are still not protecting me as a baby (if that makes sense). Like Gloria Lemay said: Babies are delicate, and most mothers will just want to wrap them up in soft toweling, tickle their cheeks, kiss their heads and smile sweetly at them while making funny noises. For many babies, what came next was the polar opposite to the care they'd received until then. I shudder and shiver every single time I imagine this procedure being carried out, and it pains me to know there are (sadistic?) doctors out there still legally doing this. (What kind of person decides to do this for a living?) Some circumcision centers give discounts if there is more than one to be mutilated: just like BOGOF offers at the food store.

Nice article. Shame that there are some women in the comments who are still under the illusion that that removing a functional part of their sons' sexual organs is somehow their choice, but at least they're relatively civil about it.
