Actually Potobac you couldn't be more wrong. Adult women DO sometimes choose even quite harsh forms of female circumcision, and educated emancipated women are among them. Try googling the Bondo club of Sierra Leone (a kind of Amazonian Freemasons with mutilating entry ritual) and also Dr Fuambai Ahmadu - an anthropologist in the US who apparently chose to have the external portion of her clitoris (i.e. a small part of its overall mass) excised in adulthood. She denies this damages, including saying sex is just fine, and cites that circumcised women in Africa have especially low rates of HIV. If only you'd care to see it, male and female genital cutting have much in common. The main thing we must remember is that no one - but no one - should have any form of genital cutting forced or coerced on them. The UN expresses this best, about male circ but it also applies to female: "Mandatory or coerced male circumcision is a violation of a range of human rights, including rights to dignity, bodily integrity and personal autonomy'.
