Genital Mutilation: Some Bad, Some Good?
The Boston Globe ran a story today (from the International Herald Tribune) on a study that shows "Genital cutting raises risk of childbirth mortality." It's about time we started seeing more discussion of this hideous practice of "female circumcision." But because the practice is African and/or Muslim, it's usually not touched by the liberal media. So this is a refreshing change.
Why can't our own culture start dealing honestly with the scandal of "sex-change" genital and breast mutilations? Why is modern America afraid to discuss the abomination of "sex reassignment" surgeries and hormone treatments? What are the long-term health effects on people electing the treatments? Why is the "transgender/transsexual" fad getting a free pass?
