Labiaplasty

labiaplasty

I read an article the other day about a woman who choose labiaplasty in her 20s and was very satisfied with the results.  Good for her.  And good for men who choose circumcision in their 20s and are very satisfied with the results.  They made informed choices about their own bodies.

This doesn’t change our position on infant labiaplasty or infant circumcision one bit.  The fact that a very small percentage of women have problems with their labia, and opt for labiaplasty rather than less invasive treatment measures, and are satisfied with the results of the surgery, is no justification for giving parents the right to choose labiaplasty for their daughters.

In the same vein, the fact that a very small percentage of men have problems with their foreskins, and opt for circumcision rather than less invasive treatment measures, and are satisfied with the results of the surgery, is no justification for giving parents the right to choose circumcision for their sons.

    “less invasive”…”i was tired of hang-nails, so i cut off my fingers”.
    the truth is, humans are actually one of the dumbest animals on planet earth. no other creature i’m aware of hand-delivers their offspring into the jaws of a predator (quite literally in the case of ‘metzitzah’).
