Talking 'bout my g..g...generation

Good news: Egypt has made female genital mutilation illegal. The practice is still widespread in many countries.

Amanda at Pandagon reports this news, and wonders how quickly the thread will change from talking about FGM to discussion of male circumcision. It takes about forty comments before the thread is almost completely taken over by discussion of penises (largely by men, plus one woman).

It's not as if there are no places to talk about penises, why is it that every discussion of FGM has to be annexed in this way?

I say 'every', but to be fair, lj doesn't always go that way (pace my previous post)
