DEAR EMMA WATSON
Where was MY right to decide what to do with my body? It wasn’t in the room where my parents paid a doctor to cut the skin off my penis when I was a mere minutes old!!
I bet your clit and vulva are still intact.
Tell me again how oppressed you are by this patriarchy?
Please do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision.
Male circumcision is not done to oppress men or destroy their sexuality but for either religious or health reasons. Removing the foreskin does not prevent sex, or damage the penis. You were not genetically mutilated.
Female circumcision involves removing the clitoris, or the vulva, sometimes it involves cutting the inside of the vagina and sowing it shut so that it heals over. Sometimes all of the above. It is oppressive, it is always painful and often fatal, and is still practised in many countries around the world with the goal of oppressing women under extreme patriarchal regimes.
Emma Watson may not suffer from those regimes directly in the way you’re referring to, but she spoke very frankly about how she has had a very privileged life. She is using that privilege to stand up for those who are not as fortunate.
Tell me again how you are helping by making it about you?
People like this are honestly so awful lmao.
Yes, the extreme forms of FGM are far more harmful than your average circumcision. Yes, the context of that mutilation is far more oppressive. Yes, he should not have made this about him.
However, swinging back with unreasonable requests* like “do not belittle female circumcision by comparing it to male circumcision” and saying male circumcision “doesn’t damage the penis” while waving the “religious and health reasons” wand makes this a 3/10 response. If you’re going to engage in a debate about anything, make sure you get your facts straight first.
*This sort of attempt to completely dissociate male from female circumcision is part of the reason why many people refuse flat-out to take male circumcision seriously, no matter how sound the arguments against it are.
Side note, I am strongly in favor of changing the language around circumcision in general to avoid gendering it, but I guess that’s a discussion for another day.
how the fuck do some girls get boyfriends so easily like wtf do you just create them in your basement or what
is there a word for “i’m okay but it’s a fragile kind of okay so be gentle with me”?
