We’ve seen a bunch of videos depicting the unspeakable savagery of male genital mutilation, but this video seems to hit the nail right on the head in demonstrating just how truly barbaric the practice is.
Watch the video to have your eyes opened both to the trauma inflicted on the child, but also on you should you become a parent to a boy. Watch him struggle despite not having any power in his body, and listen to him scream his lungs out despite not having fully developed vocal chords.
Did you know that no professional medical association in the United States of America, or anywhere else in the world, recommends routine circumcision? At no time in its 75 years of existence has the American Academy of Pediatrics ever recommended infant circumcision. The American Medical Association calls circumcision “non-therapeutic.”
Furthermore, despite male genital mutilation being the most common surgical procedure performed in the USA, generating billions of dollars for the industry, no conclusive link between circumcision and improved health has ever been established. To the contrary, genital mutilation of boys creates immediate health risks, including infection, hemorrhage, scarring, loss of part or all of the penis, and even death. Later in life, mutilated boys face a 16 to 26 times greater chance of developing urinary tract problems than unmutilated boys.
There has also never been any conclusive link established between circumcision and the rate of HIV infections. Fact of a matter is, only sexual abstinence, the proper use of condoms, or strict adherence to one partner who has been tested to be negative can prevent one from getting infected with sexually transmitted infections. Besides, any such idea as mutilating a child to prevent the possibility for disease in the future makes about as much sense as removing healthy kidney at birth to prevent the potential for kidney stones later in life.
Mutilated men in particular need to watch, as there is the tendency to do onto others what has been done to them.
