Violently Brand British Children - thats fine with the NSPCC
on: March 9, 2019, 02:45

.... NSS chief executive Stephen Evans wrote to the NSPCC after it deflected a question about the similarities between infant male and female genital cutting on Twitter last week.

In response to a query asking why its website only covered female genital mutilation, the NSPCC tweeted: "FGM is illegal and a form of child abuse.

"The evidence on MGM isn't strong enough to suggest that male circumcision should be considered a form of child abuse, when considering the physical, religious and social implications.

"We understand that some parents see circumcision as being in the best interests of the child and it's vital that it's carried out by expert practitioners and that any risk and suffering for the child is minimised."

In his letter Mr Evans said the NSPCC's position was "difficult to reconcile with a consistent approach to other forms of non-therapeutic body alteration on children"....

The purpose of the (often culturally, or religiously motivated) assault is to brand the children. It is apparently carried out on the NHS sometimes!

Religion - even worse than superstition in general. If it happened in the past it must be fine? Like child sacrifice I suppose!

Ahh, the elephant in the room which we are not allowed to talk about lest we offend those who practice such superstitious butchery.
