going above and beyond

how can one human being contain so much wrong information?There is no exact comparison, so yes their is a difference* but to say "no comparison" as if what happens to a girl is infinitely worst than what happens to boys is way off and wrong...only equally devastating results....Many boys lose their penis and even more the use of it.
I hate to have to delve into the comparison. Beyond saying that they are equally cruel. But you are forcing the issue. So here is my first foray into the sordid subject of comparing MGM and FGM......which I maintain are equally barbaric and cruel practices which should be stopped.
A boy who loses the use of his penis can not have kids or sex.....A girl can still do both....albeit painful and pleasure less in most cases. Of course science of in vitro fertilization may make it possible for him to have kids. Most Poor males cannot afford this.
In all human society a male who cannot use his penis or does not have one is not consider a man or masculine - emasculation. A woman who loses her clitoris is still consider a woman and does not lose her femininity.
I will leave this part out of it for now...as it will only serve to take away from what is germane to our discussion.
A woman vagina has three major pleasure centers and a boy has one major pleasure center.....The prepuce or foreskin.
I have never denied the cruelty and barbarity of FGM..
You have yet to acknowledge the equally devastating results MGM
* I will not elucidate or reveal the only difference I see between the both forms of mutilation as it can and does give the edge to girls being somewhat worst....if read or interpreted incorrectly.
