    Potobac is right. Female and male foreskin is anatomically exact same thing. Embryological homologous. But cutting off the woman's foreskin is prohibited in many countries. Even though it was one of Mohammed approved operation. Therefore, many Muslims think that circumcision of women's foreskin is a religious act. Many believe that religious male circumcision also has a cultur justification and therefore legitimate. Female circumcision has a strong cultur background but it is not legitimate. Different standards for men and women? Let's say that female circumcision of the foreskin was a religious act, it would be allowed to perform? No I do not think so. So why allow circumcision of underage little boys for religious reasons. Religious affiliation is something you decide when you are an adult. Not of your parents or a religious congregation. And to do physical interventions on children whatever it is, is against human rights, according to the UN. Circumcision for various reasons, have been in many places on Earth since long before Abraham and God made his covenant. The blood shedding is an old way to ratify a mutual agreement. Today we shake hands or write it down on a paper. Today, God will certainly receive our declaration of our faith to him without circumcision. God can see into our hearts, he dose not need to see the penis. That other than Jews circumcise their children do not make it more acceptable. The carton is not anti-semitic it is anti- religious.
