Excision, Circumcision, Same Old Song, Same Fight!Michel Hervé Navoiseau-Bertaux Salem-News.com
"Cultures that tolerate within themselves the appropriation by adults of whatever part of the body of minors, do not deserve the name of civilization."
(PARIS, France) - The quasi-castration of the cut of the clitoris saves reproduction. Contrary to hasty affirmations, it is not a castration. But, in the majority of cases, pleasure is "castrated".
Nevertheless, on the psychological ground, not only that quasi-castration strengthens, for boys, the threat of castration that circumcision is, but also, when circumcision alone is operated, it is always considered by the girl, unconsciously, as a threat of excision, with all the deleterious effects of such a threat.
Under the guise of the noble aim to warrant and teach the respect of moral and law, sexual mutilation has the same nonuttered aim: ensure, through terror, the domination of adults upon children and that of the rulers upon their subjects, so traumatized for life.
Considering the deep rooting in mores of sexual mutilation, it is illusory to attack excision without in the same time doing it for circumcision, that is to say without getting to the root of the evil.
Or else, not only will the fight against deadly excision only progress in dribs and drabs, but also men, and consequently women, will be maintained under the yoke of an unacceptable violence.
