Because both are painful and the child has no choice in the matter. Though it's obvious that one is a lot more painful than the other.
How is that obvious ?

There are many types of FGM, the minor ones are absolutely comparable to male circumcision.

It depends; it can range from the removal of a piece of the clitoral hood (analogous to circumcision, I suppose), to removal of the entire external genitalia and sewing up the vaginal opening, leaving only a small hole for urine and menstrual blood.
Well with females lacking the relevant organs for it to be a 1-to-1 comparison, I disagree that any form of FGM can be "absolutely comparable" or "analogous to circumcision, I suppose"

If we flip it the other way, I could also argue that male circumcision is analogous to peeling a banana!

And who's to say a circumcised penis isn't disfigured? A lifelong, visible scar and little resemblance to a normal penis seems to indicate disfigurement...
Yours truely would!

Doesn't look disfigured at all, and if I had a choice I wouldn't have it any other way.

and a foreskin can be considered as major a part of genitalia as a labia, no?
No.

Well you don't have to be a brain surgeon to figure out that a prick (no pun intended) to the ear is less painful than having a piece of skin taken right off your todger!

Take a look at some female bodybuilding porn - give a chic enough test and her clit will develop into a mini dick. Foreskin is clit hood - absolutely the same thing.

No.
But clitoral hood - where pricking thereof is the most practiced form of female circumcision in Malaysia is exactly analogous.
Either way unless its your body dont screw it up.

Actually, the foreskin and clitoral hood are formed from exactly the same tissue during fetal development. So, no, they are not analogous, they are homologous.

Ah ok - I had thought that you were comparing male and female circ. Thanks - but again I imagine DESIRING the operation would make the pain far more tolerable and ethical.

Re: Circumcision in Switzerland [info ONLY please]

There is no need to compare wrongly or rightly with female genitalia mutilation to know that circumcision is not a good news for the male pleasure. One just need to know said male genitals.
The myths of 19th century's pseudo-medicine are not dead. Sad but true. Even in the case of medical condition (phimosis or alike), European doctors don't cut the whole foreskin off, just the problematic part. Huge difference with total circumcision.

We already know what you think.

But as long as we're headed in that direction, I think there's something mighty creepy about a mom surgically altering her son's penis to match her own sexual preferences.

Creepy indeed. I hope no women do that for that purpose only.... But I won't hold my breath on this.

The point is, there are many things parents get done for their children that some might not agree with. Some are clear no-no-s and some are absolutely fine. In between is a grey area where some think it's ok and some think it's not ok. Male circumcision is one of those grey areas. You might not agree with it, but arguing that it should be the child's choice or trying to compare it to FGM are very weak arguments in my opinion.

So you refuse to be informed about the similarities between male and female sexual anatomy yet continue to believe that male and female circumcision are completely different ???

Also the argument that one's body belongs to one's self is exceptionally strong - and in particular the involuntary alteration/mutilation thereof is morally absurd.

I just happen to have a different opinion to you that's all.

Has nothing to do with any of the other crap you're talking about.

Re: Circumcision: right or wrong?

I have been circumcised 7 times, the problem is that I was bitten on the penis by a radioactive lizard. My foreskin keeps growing back
