You know as screwed up and sick this doctor is...He would NEVER be able to do such a thing if the parents didnt allow it......
Why is no social worker looking into why a parent would allow such a thing to happen to thier kids???

I'm sure he's spinning it as "Medically necessary" or something.

If you did this on a full grown woman it would be sexual assault. Why it is okay on CHILDREN????

Its called Female Genital Cutting or Female Genital Mutilation. Its done alot in Africa and in some muslim countries so that the girl doesn't enjoy sex and won't stray. The media is finally noticing that docs here will do it for the parents as well.

sigh....

Wait, ...what? So it's illegal when it's for religious reasons, but NOT if it's for cosmetic ones?

Huh?

Who's fault is it really though? It's the parents, because they let him. I find that much worse. Who would let something like this be done to their child ? Who would even APPROVE that it was ok to do? And what kind of medical associations even give approval for this sort of thing? Not just the genital cutting, but of the "stimulation" issue? I just don't understand it, I cannot comprehend the kinds of people that do these things and let them happen.

my daughter is five and a half and i could cheerfully take a hatchet to the skull of a doctor who did this to my child. not that it would ever happen because there is no way on earth i would ever consent to it, but still. what is broken in our society and world when the parenting instinct to PROTECT OUR CHILDREN doesn't kick in when a doctor suggests something this sick and insane?

Here's another article about it. It includes a link to the actual study, for those as disbelieving as I was.

You know this is a human failure on many parts -- the parents for agreeing, the scientist and the medical staff that allowed it and didn't do anything.

Poppas has indicated in this article and elsewhere that ideally he seeks to conduct annual exams with these girls..
Dr. Money, of Johns Hopkins (the pysch NOT dr who "approved" the David Reimer sex reassignment after his botched circ.) did the same kind of annual exams. BOTH Reimer and his identical twin died of suicide.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Reimer

Money is deceased now, and the entire Hopkins gender reassignment program was pretty much shut down, as far as I can tell, becuase of fallout from the john/joan case.

and why is this any different from doctors that stimulate erections in baby boys before they cut their genitals to see where to cut?

I wish I could say I'm surprised by this, but they do it to boys, why not girls? Parents allow this to happen to their sons all the time. I'm as appalled by this as I am by what goes on in hospital nurseries all over the country every.single.day. Appalled, but not surprised.

Two quotes from the article stand out to me as really interesting. I wonder how these can be written about girls, but not about boys.
Quote:
Many of us happen to think "normal" sexual development is actually likely to be thwarted by having parts of your genitals taken away without your consent
Quote:
Even if he is able to save the nerves of the glans, which isn't always the case, Poppas is removing an important part of the female genitals. For a purely aesthetic reason.
