I work at Sonora Regional Medical Center and this week, I have been working at a pediatric clinic and I have learned certain things about circumcisions and when it should be performed on a baby boy.

There are many benefits to a circumcision including a reduced risk of urinary tract infections, a reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men, reduced risk of penile
Most of the fathers how are circumcised agree that they are normal circumcised guys and they want their sons to be normal too. They believe that their sons should look like them and they also feel like circumcision is not only expect from women, but it’s part of being a man as well. Those who have been circumcised but who are not going to have their sons go through it say that they feel pain once and a while from the scars of circumcision and it pains them to have sex. Others say that their circumcisions are the cause of their erectile dysfunction (ED) and impotency.
Katso Sebina 1623703 Anthropology Annotated Bibliography An annotated bibliography discussing the different perspectives of female circumcision This bibliography discusses the different anthropological aspects of female circumcision, which mostly occurs in Northern Africa. The different sources show that female circumcision is closely tied to religion, particularly Islam, and does not only occur in Northern Africa.

In Genesis, “God told Abraham to circumcise himself, his household and his slaves as an everlasting covenant in their flesh. Those who were not circumcised were to be 'cut off' from their people (Genesis 17:10-14)”(http://www.cirp.org/pages/cultural/glass2/0 ) Which leads to the strong Jews or Jews that try and follow their faith get circumcised. Later in life around the age of 13 you are to have a Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah which is a tradition to adduct the young women or man into adulthood.

Even though this practice was outlawed back in 1994, there are still strong traditions that women and girls get this done. Many attempts have been made to end this practice but there is a conflict where if the Government and health agencies end this, they are said to be unethical.
The few personal stories from the women who experienced circumcision offer powerful additions to the horrifying nature of genital mutilation and how the poorly done operation forever ruins the women’s hygiene and health. The result of Soraya Mire’s choice to only showcase the graphic parts of female circumcision takes away the cultural meaning and importance of the practice. Soraya Mire’s strong opinion on female circumcision relates closely with the Western approach to viewing external cultures and disagreeing with practices that
Informative Speech: Female Genital Mutilation Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about female genital mutilation and where the controversy of it all lies.

The gender roles of women in the USA and in the Maasai culture are completely different from one another. First, the Maasai women are circumcised between the ages of 11 and 13. The married women do more work than their husbands and they respect them while not challenging them. Once a woman is circumcised she can only have sexual relations with elders. They are circumcised because they believe if you are not circumcised than you can’t have babies who could be the next generation of warriors.
These artifacts have been known to show power and masculinity. On the other hand throughout history, woman genitals have been taboo. Unlike men genitals, women genitals are hidden and not seen without effort.

He also cited this method as more humane than surgical castration, which leads to permanent incapacitation. However, opponents of chemical castration including Miller (1998) have raised concern over the constitutionality of the practice. For example, it is argued that subjecting an individual to the procedure is a violation of one’s constitutional rights besides predisposing the individual to the associated side effects. Other researchers claim that both sides are valid provided that chemical castration is officially constituted and, made a voluntary procedure and carried out in the correct and recommended manner by qualified health professionals.
Each and every one of us know of someone or have heard of someone who has been sexually abused in some way during their childhood. Such a heinous crime deserves an equally deserving punishment. Over the years our government has been working to find a way to stop these crimes from repeating themselves. The most effective way other than surgical castration has shown to be through chemical castration.
