Cut Egyptian Women and cut USA Men agree, “Circumcision is OK”

The cycle of abuse legitimises inflicting genital mutilation on succeeding generations of children in different cultures; Egyptian women demand their daughters are cut – USA men demand their sons are too… “It was done to me – it must be right for my child”

Denial of harm is a classic coping mechanism in response to trauma, especially when it occurs in early childhood or the pre-verbal stage. Unresolved trauma among both women and men whose genitals were cut at an early age, combined with ignorance of the functions and benefits of intact genitals, underpin their ardent support for continuation of the ‘gift’ passed down to them by their parents.
