In provinces in the Philippines, to this day, boys around the age of 10 are circumcised. But they aren’t cut in hospitals, like in Manila, they are cut in a stream. The boys strip, jump into the water, line up, chew guava leaves, and then face the moment of truth: Will they be brave and become men or run away and be seen as cowards?
Di Filipina, sampai hari ini, anak laki-laki sekitar usia 10 tahun harus disunat. Tapi mereka tidak disunat di rumah sakit, tetapi ditepi sebuah sungai.
