Colonialism 101: The Several Faces Of Colonialism

Good insights in female genital cutting(FGC). I think it all revolves around clitoridectomy, and the cultural evaluation of orgasm. Earlier, in the 19th and 20th century American settler culture adopted non-consensual forms of female genital cutting, clitoridectomy in particular. The intensity of female genital cutting derives from a complex synergy of factors. Pharaonic circumcision is particular to the Kemetic culture, spread to the Fulbe in West-Africa, influencing the Malikite school of thought, and the Somali in East-Africa, influencing the Shafi3ite school of thought.
A similar nuanced discussion, weighing all forms of oppression and cultural identity could be applied to male genital cutting.
