It is already illegal as all hell in the USA to “circumcise” underage

reasonable logical extrapolation to underage males?

Aren't the two procedures rather different?  For males, I understand that
it is removal of a skin flap (without which basically the same sexual
function - after reaching puberty - as with is entirely possible), whereas
for females, I understand that it is basically castration, significantly
degrading (post-puberty) sexual function (which I understand to be the
point).  If I understand correctly, it's like the difference between
cutting off a fingernail and cutting off a finger.
