circumcision

Recommended Posts

Bottom line -- the opposition to circumcision is overblown but there remain reasonable reasons to do it or not to do it.

My opposition to it is, this is the year 2013, 2556, 1434 or whatever year you choose to use.

We dont live in the back of beyond with no running water or sanitation, hence the reason it was originally intended.

Apart from religious reasons, no one can tell me why it must be performed.

A friend of mine married a Muslim woman recently, was told he must have the snip, he refused, for some strange reason the marriage went ahead.

In this day and age it amounts to nothing more than child abuse.

100% agree, and it seems some folk believe in a god creator, then remove bits that their god gave them. How strange. bah.gif

Use of the word "must" is loaded. We are talking about keeping the option legal for parents to CHOOSE. Also no need to bring religion into this. The medical reasons to do this, yes in this modern era, have already been mentioned. There are pros and cons medically. Again, a CHOICE for the parents.

If you don't want to circumcise your child, then don't. Doesn't give you the right to insist your way is the only way when there actually ARE good medical reasons to do the procedure.

Isn't it strange don't you think, that the vast majority of the male populous of our planet, eventually get to meet their maker with their todger intact ?

Must we have our ears removed in case we get ear ache, or remove everything in case we get some illness. Hmmmmmm, don't think so. Folk like yourself have been cut up cos of a religion, plain and simple and you try and defend it by some ridiculous medical theory. rolleyes.gif

Don't go there dude. I am not a religious person at all. Not one bit. Nor were my parents. In my generation of American boys, the VAST MAJORITY were cut. REGARDLESS of religion. Now, it's about 50 percent in the USA of new baby boys.

Also not a medical theory. There are known facts now about the medical benefits but of course there are downsides to the option as well. Which is why it should remain a choice, not required, and not banned.

I do think parents should give this more thought than let's do it like Daddy's but really you can't MAKE parents think deep on this unless you favor overbearing laws on the matter.

Ok, please list me off the top of your head, half a dozen reasons why it should be done.

God no....I mean hell no.

My old man was not religious, I am not religious.....no religion based amputations here.

If my penis was any more sensitive than it is...well...it would not be put into half the places its been put into.

If people want to be passionately against circumcision, that's fine. Just don't make it illegal.

Why would you want to amputate a perfectly healthy body part, unless you have a religious compulsion to do so? Let him choose for himself when he is older.

any parent who does to their child is selfish in the extreme. it should be the child's choice later in life, period. something so crucial and integral to the male identity should not be trifled with. almost as bad as parents who choose their children's religion (dont get me started on that sh*t)

I think you place too much importance on a piece of skin that you never miss....well unless you are one of those metrosexual types....crucial and integral....crikey, how many uncut knobs do you see in porn flicks ?

I rest my case.

The legallity of it is another discussion I am more than welcome to have, but as of yet no one has been able to justify why it is carried out in this day and age, forget sub saharan Africa 2000 years ago.

Firstly can we stop calling this "mutilation"? Done in a correct medical facility the proper definition should be cosmetic surgery. Which is what's being refered to by the op. As for justifying this procedure then you need to ask 'The World Health Organisation' and 'UNAIDS' who

recommend circumcision as part of a comprehensive program for prevention of HIV transmission in areas with high endemic rates of HIV

If my son is going to travel the world and do the things that I think all parents expect their sons to do then I'm for prevention. And speaking as a supporter of circumcision, until you've seen both side of the story I don't think you should really comment. Me, I got surgery aged 14. At that age it came as a great embarrasement to me and only wish my father had seen good sense in getting me done as a baby.

Contrary to popular myths it has no affect on your sex life whatsoever.

No one has the right to mutilate a Child...Male or Female.

If you feel the positives outweigh the negatives, then it is justified. Only hindsight will prove you wrong and I've never heard of anyone complain in later life that they regret being done. As a parent we are there to decide, right or wrongly.

Perhaps the WHA is concerned about countries with lack of personal hygiene (soap) and countries with no education on transmitted diseases.

NOT, first world countries with known knowledge of risks and excellent hygiene practice. NOT archaic procedures.
