As expected, the arguments advanced on BBC One last night in defence of male genital mutilation were parental choice, that the boys were still largely or completely insentient even at eight days after birth, and that the practice would only be driven underground.
"Choice." "They can't feel pain yet." "Backstreets." We have heard it all before. You cannot hold the line, either against abortion, or against the genital mutilation of children in the name of transgender ideology (about which all three of these absurd claims will soon be made, if they are not already), unless you also hold the line here.
