Is your penis "mutilated"? [View all]

There are lots of women (and men) on DU that like to throw out the term "mutilated" when talking about the genitals of men who have been circumcised.

This brings up a few things that I think are worthy of discussion. I can start with a few and maybe you call can share your opinions too.

Describing another person's genitals as "mutilated" seems to me obviously hurtful and rude. Most people are sensitive about how their bodies are viewed and this is even more true with regards to genitalia I suspect or other body parts viewed as sex-related.

If people are offended at the terms "bitch", "pussy", "retard", "cunt" and the like, is it not reasonable to think that describing millions of men&s genitals as "mutilated" would also be deemed as offensive?

If men were to describe breasts that had been removed for a mastectomy as "mutilated", how might someone respond?

If men were to describe vaginas that had been given episiotomies or simply had long stretched labias as "mutilated", how might some respond?

Some may throw the word "whiner" out there in response to this OP, but that really is not how I am feeling about it. It's just that I think the blindness and double standard that some people have when (not) considering mens' feelings need to be pointed out.
