Apples to Oranges?

I had a very interesting conversation with a friend of mine recently and something has been bothering me.

She is going to have a baby in the next 2 months. They decided to circumcise the child (not because of religion; they claim its more hygienic etc).
I did not do it for my child (she asked me why I didnt do it) as I believed perhaps he should be the one to make a call when he grows up and its not a part of my religion anyway.

Now the interesting part is that, she gently points out the hypocrisy in me. I got my daughters ears pierced when she was 8 months (we used numbing gel).
She asked me why I did not feel the need to let my daughter have a say in whether or not she wants her ears pierced.

Am i being a hypocrite? I feel its comparing apples to oranges. female genital mutilation would be equivalent to circumcision.

what are your thoughts?
