I've seen a lot of debate online about this topic lately. The majority of the accounts I've read throw around the phrase "genital mutilation". Militant mothers with in-tact sons feel they need to fight to increase society's awareness about the frivolity and abuse that is circumcision: we consider female circ an abuse, it's an antiquated anti-sex/masturbation tactic, why do harm infringing on nature's will? The few and feeble that I've seen take a pro-circ stance usually say they weren't informed at the time of their child's birth and thought it was the norm, chose circumcision for religious reasons, had their child circumcised for aesthetic reasons (so he looks the same as his daddy), or believe it aids in keeping male genitals cleaner and less prone to infection.
