Female genital mutilation (FGM) and circumcision aren't exotic tragedies that only exist in primitive lands; the gruesome reality is that they still occur right here in the modern "civilized" West. A combination of ignorance and financial greed sometimes overwhelms people's natural humanity, and many individuals as well as society suffer the consequences eventually. Something I found very interesting is that the author was aware of her mother's gross incompetence as a parent in general, long before she discovered she had been the victim of a clitoridectomy. Patricia Robinett opposes forced genital cutting of ALL children, whether they are female, male, or intersex, as do I. Forced genital cutting of American girls became illegal in 1997. I hope that it will someday be illegal to violate the human right to genital autonomy all ALL children, everywhere. 3 people found this helpful.

The Rape of Innocence is about a practice which was once touted as a cure for masturbation. In the United States circumcision remained in vogue for many years and resulted in irreparable grief for many of its victims. My own circumcision was also the result of misguided medical advice, as a physician recommended it to cure my early bed wetting, a symptom probably secondarily associated with separation trauma when I began school at age five. It prominently dealth with circumcision as a remedy for both male and female masturbation. The author had also discovered Kellogg's book and quotes from it. This volume is in my book collection and remains a treasure trove of armful medical advice.
Fair disclosure: Although I do not believe this affected my opinion of her book, Patricia is a friend of mine. The author was a victim of genital surgeries performed on her when she was a child. Female circumcision appears never to have numerically matched the cutting of boys. The practice was dying here in the 1950s although articles advocating female circumcision were published in medical journals and popular magazines (including Cosmopolitan) into the 1970s. As the author states on the back cover of her book, Blue Cross Blue Shield actually paid for clitoridectomies until 1977
