From YKTTW Working Title: Rite of Passage

Mister Bernie: I took out the following line:
  • Muslims have the circumcision of both boys and girls (though this is rare outside Africa and very controversial) at age 12.
because I can't think of a better wording for it, and it's not a Muslim thing, but a regional/cultural thing. Additionally, the "at age 12" isn't true, and from what I recall, it would be more of an Initiation Ceremony than a Rite of Passage.
