In brief: No way

Male circumcision is requirement by some religions & female so called 'circumcisions' by NO religions.
Prevents phimosis in men, also reduces risk of UTIs in baby boys, easier to keep clean reduces & risk of STDs. In females is pure & simple mutilation as clitoris is amputated to prevent any future erotic sensation from sex or masturbation. Also severe risk of serious infection & hemorrhage. ? = ?
