Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
The words "reputable" and "strictly speaking" make me think this is going to be like debating a creationist ...

Nerves:
15 square inches.
over all view on operation

Anaesthesia:
No, I think you're right. Too much conflicting information.

Law:
New Zealand
UK.
EU resolution - "any form of female genital mutilation, of whatever degree"
US federal law - doesn't appear to prohibit things that don't actually remove tissue. Good news, huh!
Various US state laws

Ooh, the mother lode  - eh, lots of dead links.

Thanks for the citations. I think there are likely others on the other side of the foreskin issue, so the "reputable" comment is well taken.

Still don't see anything though which refers to a pin prick as being genital mutilation, if so I would expect all these nations to outlaw the practise of genital piercing.
