Male AND female circumcision are anti-evolution

it’s a short paper;

Abstract: “For various reasons, penile and clitoral prepuces have been amputated from children in certain human societies for thousands of years. Although the justifications for male and female circumcision have changed over the last several thousand years, the practice of circumcision has not been examined from the perspective of primate evolution. Why do primates have a prepuce, and what function does it have? The comparative anatomy between human and non-human primates will be reviewed with a specific focus on the sensory innervation of the prepuce and glans.”

Highlighted (literally);

The male and female prepuce has persisted in all primates, which strongly supports the contention that the prepuce is valuable genital sensory tissue.

Some advocates of mass circumcision have, likewise, considered the prepuce to be a “mistake of nature,”70 but this notion has no validity because the prepuce is ubiquitous in primates and because it provides functional advantages.

The results of this study demonstrate that the human prepuce is not “vestigial” but is, in fact, an evolutionary advancement over the prepuce of other primates. This is most clearly seen in the evolutionary increase in corpuscular innervation of the human prepuce and the concomitant decrease in corpuscular receptors of the human glans relative to the innervation of the prepuce and glans of lower primates.
