Via Glenn Reynolds, I found an intriguing question about female genital mutilation:

Should outsiders be telling African women what initiation practices are acceptable?

Gee, I don’t know.
I guess as an “outsider” I should first be asking whether I have a right to an opinion about what is acceptable.
But I agree that it’s a good question, and even though I might not be allowed to have an opinion, I have thought of a few more.
Should outsiders be telling Tlingit Indians what slavery ownership practices are acceptable?
Should outsiders be telling Iranians what nuclear practices are acceptable?
Should outsiders be telling Muslim men what honor killing practices are acceptable?
Should outsiders be telling Rwandans what tribal warfare practices are acceptable?
Should outsiders be telling Cambodians what collectivization practices are acceptable?
Should outsiders be telling Germans what Jewish evacuation practices are acceptable?
God forbid that we might get judgmental about these things….
