At the risk of failing to keep this blog PG-13, female genital mutilation is different from circumcision is many different ways. Most notably is the reason for it in the sense that Edward is describing: It is done (along with the burka) to oppress women and keep them subservient to men. Not to mention the blatant health risks. I don't think many people would consider circumcision to be harmful or damaging to men.
But I'm sure this fellow would be horrified if someone implied that he had problem with Jewish customs because of this equivalence.
