Circumcision reinforces social and moral rules:

• complete sexual abstinence outside of marriage

• that the procreative function is the positive aspect of sexual relations between men and women (i.e., judgmental : sex is for procreation)
The position of religious and public authorities.
Religious and public authorities cautiously speak out against circumcision through the media, particularly the press. Given that Djiboutians are Sunna Muslims, the Sunna circumcision is proposed as a religious tradition instead of the cultural tradition of infibulation.
