The venue was the Lancaster Hotel in London. The event was the NSPCC’s fundraising “White Hat Ball.” This was just a few days after Sir James Munby, one of the country’s top judges, pointed out in a recent judgement that some forms of FGM (female genital mutilation) were less damaging that male circumcision (MGM). The authorities will eventually have to recognise that if you cannot photograph a child’s genitals; you cannot tattoo a child and you cannot touch a child’s genitals, except for cleaning or medical examination, then how is it possible that society can permit the excision of healthy tissue from the genitals of any child, boy, girl or intersex?
