I wonder if Philippine Moms ever threatened to cut off the breasts or at least the nipples of their misbehaving daughters? She wouldnít mean it but the child doesnít know that, like you didnít know if she would actually castrate you. Aside from abject terror of the child, just a harmless threat.

No, I doubt daughters were terrified in this way. They had feelings that mattered. But that threat to a boy probably quite fun for Moms as they saw huge fear in their sonís eyes. Because I imagine that mere embarrassment and humiliation can become humdrum over time because it appears to be common in that culture.

Yeah... the double standard is obviously real. My female cousin is a nursing student who does circumcision missions too, and she saw that a few boys come in with small slits cut on their foreskin already.

When she asked their mothers why, the moms would say the boys had been naughty, meaning that they were using scissors to make small cuts on their sons' foreskins as a punishment before the circumcision date.

This was completely messed up, but their mothers' reasoning was that since the area of skin is going to be removed anyway, why not use it for some punishment while you still can.

You are right. That is sick and cruel. There are many ways to punish your child without resorting to physical torture.
