In the comments section of last week’s discussion of female genital cutting in Africa:

Anthropology 101: Cant judge this tradition from our western eyes, cultural relativism people!

Johnny: Relativism, schmelativism. Cutting off girls’ clits is wrong and the men who do it should likewise have the tips of their dicks cut off under third-world sanitary conditions. Speaking of which, I want my foreskin back.

    Johnny, female circumcision is usually done by other women. As far as male circumscion in developing countries, the practices are not always the same as in the west. There is a lot of information about both practices available.
