'Good' reasons

It is hard to believe that 95% is mutilated despite all the "good reasons" mentioned in the article.

" ... Egyptian families still view circumcision as necessary to protect girls' chastity. Most girls are cut by the time they reach puberty."

""If a girl is not purified, she will just go hook up with men. This protects women's honour."

""No one can get married without it," said the girl."

"Egypt lives in peace and security because there is circumcision."  Euhh, what did I miss?
