Noticed this on my 'Popular on Netflix' list and it's a subject I feel quite passionately about, so I'm really glad to see an open dialogue about this issue and that it's getting some long overdue publicity. The doc offers opinions on both sides of the argument, and questions claims about hygiene and disease prevention that get banded about as fact. And it details the history of how certain bizarre and archaic notions made their way to becoming common medical practice in the US. It also asks the question why is the idea of female circumcision so abhorrent to most people, whereas male circumcision goes unquestioned as something healthy and in the best interests of the child? And what are the psychological effects of having this traumatic and often gruesome act carried out on you as a baby? As someone in the documentary says, one day we will look back in astonishment that this was systematically carried out on baby boys.
