Seeing how the AAP’s revised policy statement on female genital cutting is inducing mass outrage, I think I need to revisit the issue. My initial analysis is very different from the basic, solidifying narrative. I’d planned to follow-up during lunch today, but there’s too much information to adequately address in this short time. I’m going to clarify my thoughts over the next day or so.
My request: I know people read what I write here about circumcision. If you read my blog entry on the AAP’s policy statement, let me know if you think there are any flaws in what I wrote, or if there are areas that I wasn’t clear. I want to make sure I get this right, but I’m perplexed that my take is so much different than what’s being said elsewhere. I don’t think I’ve misread the policy statement, but I want you to tell me I’m wrong if you think I have. Thanks.
