Boys’ rights

To the Editor:

In the wake of the Katsav conviction, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that "Today, the court conveyed two clear-cut messages — that all are equal before the law and that every woman has exclusive rights to her body."

So when will the law find males "as equal" as females, and forbid non-therapeutic genital cutting on those who can’t give their own informed consent? Boys don’t have exclusive rights to their own bodies?
