Does this include parents and relatives who get their kids' ears pierced when they are babies?

The amount of people that do this is negligible really, it is no way common place, and it is not associated with a specific culture.

 

You're attempt at glossing over FGM by bringing up piercing babies ears is very revealing.

Wrong on both counts (as a really easy bit of research would have shown you, had you been bothered) and your attempt to portray TCH's point as an attempt to gloss over FGM are frankly ridiculous.

No it's not. Comparing ear piercing and FGM is stomach turning, at the dismissive attitude to FGM. Disgraceful comment.

I can't speak for Top Cat's Hat, but I suspect your characterisation of his attitude to FGM as 'dismissive' is grossly disingenuous.

As for your comment re comparing FGM and ear piercing of babies - whether you like it or not they are both medically unnecessary surgical procedures carried out on children without their consent.

They are both unnecessary, but are so far related from each other, including them in a discussion about FGM is beyond disingenuous. Why even bother linking them, apart from achieving its objective of diverting the discussion onto more trivial subjects and semantics, a typical tactic with some.
