Drugs and female circumcision

Simon Pound does his nut about the British government's plans to "vaccinate" children against drug addiction, comparing it to female circumcision:

Clitorises make woman unruly and lustful. Cocaine makes the proles unruly and troublesome. Can't have that. Lets chop off their pleasure sectors to make them pliant. Sure it denies the pleasure their bodies were built for, but this is for their own good.

That's a disturbingly apt comparison. My own thoughts on the issue are here.
