So it's 2018 and this abomination is still legal and widely practiced in almost every juristiction around the world. It's disturbing how it has been normalized to such an extent that most people are not only just indifferent toward the issue, but even defend it. All of the excuses that people use to try to justify this ancient, barbaric ritual are absurd. Routinely cutting off normal, healthy parts of a defenseless baby's body is so cowardly and unethical that you'd think anyone with even the slightest sense of morality would understand that. This is one of the few issues in the world that always gets me really depressed when I think about it and makes me hate the human race. Routine genital mutilation of any form has no place in a modern, civilized society, and we should all fight to have it stamped out and criminalized.
