To protect. To control. To separate. To label. To define. To keep out. To keep in. To discipline. To be different. To take possession. To not become too big. To not become too small. To be one.
How is a body a territory, where are its borders, how can it be mapped?
Where does body improvement end, when does mutilation start?
Provocatively asked: What is the difference between female circumcision and genital surgery?
Bodies and borders – does it all come down to invasion versus protection?
