William Collins writes about male genital mutilation

You can rely on William Collins to publish pieces backed up by a considerable amount of research. His new piece on MGM is impressive, and will be a good source of references for us for the years ahead. We’ll be devoting a higher proportion of our efforts to MGM in future, than we have in the past. It is, after all, an area where a huge amount of future human suffering could be avoided with a single Act of Parliament. The time to end MGM on religious or cultural grounds, for those under 18, has surely arrived.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • I sincerely hope you do. As Mr.Collins points out the majority are not on religious grounds but related to discredited medical notions or moral crusades (against masturbation) of the nineteenth century. I respectfully suggest any law takes the line of prohibiting “non medical/clinical” circumcision for babies infants and children. Clearly adults may indeed wish to have a non-medical procedure as part of culture/religion and I think that’s their right (but not on the NHS).

    It is a very good concise write-up, with links. Ideal for introducing the main issues surrounding MGM to the uninitiated (pun not intended).
