'Zero Tolerance': A Worldwide Call to Eliminate the Brutal Practice of FGM

Zero tolerance.

That's what the United Nations, health professionals, and those who advocate for women and girls say is necessary to end female genital mutilation (FGM), a practice that still plagues millions of women and girls around the world, reflecting deep-rooted inequality between sexes and extreme discrimination against women and children.

I think the FGM is horrible, but why does no one talk about male genital mutilation never talked about? It is called circumcision. The foreskin of the male penis is the place where more nerves in the skin of the penis exist. No one ever asked me if I wanted to be circumcised.

As a retired general pediatrician, I can say absolutely that FGM is a crime against Mother Nature,
our most important god. It's unholy.

There are some offsetting health benefits from circumcision. Whether or not the drawbacks and benefits balance each other out is the question. Averaged over large populations, the benefits of circumcision are barely statistically significant.
