Fine, but the AMA are not offering to cut off the vulva or clitoris.
They are offering to put a small nick in the little piece of skin that covers the clitoris. What is your opinion of that?

Personally I'm against it anyway, but I wanted to point out the doctors are not proposing anything like what you mentioned.



It is medically unneessary. It is a foot in the door. It is HIGHLY oppressive - and being oppressive is its only function.

If one's culture is brutality, we are under no obligation to encompass it. I would argue that brutality for brualities sake, cultural oppression to enforce cultural concepts, trauma for culture, is something we are ethically and morally required to object to and hinder at every opportunity.

This "cultural" thing shouldn't have a place. It needs to be wiped out utterly from humanity.
