To: H-NET List for African History and Culture <H-AFRICA@h-net.msu.edu> Dear Dr. Darwin: I am afraid that I missed the link to this discussion of male circumcision. Would you post it again. I would like to comment on the advocacy of universal male genital mutilation as a medical procedure to prevent the transmission of AIDS or any other disease. I find the proposition outrageous and disgusting. I wonder if anyone on this list would advocate for female genital mutilation to achieve the same purposes--or even conduct research on its possible benefits. It is, after all, quite likely that the removal of female genital parts that might harbor bacteria would also be found to reduce the spread of diseases. Anthony A.
