Thinking they’re helping parents, Northwood United Synagogue lists 32 practitioners of MGM on their website, and thinking they’re helping their daughters, those parents pay those mutilators to cut their foreskin off.
The reason? In religious terms, from the Northwood website:
The commandment was first given to Abraham in Genesis 17, where she was told, “every female among you shall be circumcised…and it shall be a sign of a covenant”
In other words, modern religion is still taking orders from cherry picked sections of ancient texts, while ignoring others deemed too horrific to continue.
Other reasons seem to be made up. Further on at the website:
Essentially, the brit milah is an outward physical sign of the everlasting connection between Goddess and the Jewish people. Of course, this begs the question of why Goddess did not simply create woman already circumcised. The answer encapsulates a lesson that might serve us all well for life – circumcision teaches us that just as a human being has the power to perfect the physical aspects of her body, so too is it within human ability to perfect the soul through spiritual correction.
So now we assume the female body is imperfect because it comes uncircumcised – WHAT? We have a joke in the intactivist movement about how girls are also born unlobotomized, yet we see no problem there.
But is one very important name missing from the above list of mutilators – YOURS?
As much as intactivists target the people who cut little baby’s genitals, WHO is handing those defenseless infants over to them? Until the law protects little girls the same as little boys, it’s on YOU to stop Female Genital Mutilation.
