The Cycle of Abuse: Faces of Circumcision

Post Circumcision Ceremony (Turkey)

Post-Circumcision Ceremony.jpg (23 KB) The Turks defer male circumcision until age six or seven, thus turning it from a birth ritual into a coming-of-age ordeal.

On the day of the event, the boys dress in white and red ribbons and ride flower-bedecked donkeys or cars to the ceremony.

When the circumcision is completed, their "status" changes drastically: ribbons removed, they hold court like kings on lavishly decorated beds, receiving compliments and gifts.

Note the blood still on the boy's fingers.
