Reinforced what I already knew. It's plain damn wrong to remove a functional healthy organ from a human child of any sex without their consent. I learned a few more facts along the way as well. Not sure what the lady is rattling on about because she isn't specific. Sounds more like a very rudely awakened person who refuses to accept the facts in this book and the real world where people with a penis aren't forced into genital mutilation that leaves them robbed of pleasure, protection and function.
Seriously, if you're denying things after this book, you need a grand wake up slap for all the children's trauma you advocate for. They don't forget. They get on to be mutilated and regretful adults. This isn't about YOU, seriously.
IT'S ABOUT THE FUTURE. CHILDREN. WHO WILL BECOME ADULTS.
Excellent info and about time someone wrote honestly and scientifically about genital cutting and its subsequent mal effects and damage.. The truth about genital cutting is more important than religious and cultural biases .
