Re: [evol-psych] Re: Circumcision related to female orgasm potential?
- Ms. Artemis,As far as I know, in all cases it is men, not women who perform circumcision (with the modern exception if the dr. happens to be a woman which has no bearing on the issue). It is a male ritual of patriarchal societies. Women have nothing to do with it. I believe it occurs for the reasons stated in my previous post.EdgarOn May 1, 2007, at 1:07 AM, artemistroy wrote:

This would be classic Freudian cod-psychology.

We know that the Freudian theory of 'repression' is false, or at the very least that there is no evidence for what is in any case implausible.

I don't know who your royal "we" is, but I certainly
disagree with you, and so do many others. I can tell
at what age babyhood trauma occurs. Whether or not the
adult remembers, the trauma is laid down in the brain.
There are also psychological clues which can indicate
rough ages of childhood trauma.
