Again, those do not alter his body against his will. Not even comparable.

Because major health corporations are realizing it's not crucial like they once thought. People are misinformed about circumcision because they were taught dated information.

It's odd how the US is so pro-circumcision... because it'll prevent STD's, UTI's, etc. but we're the only country to circumcision our boys for non-religious reasons, and the only country to have problems with intact children. Weird, eh?

Until circumcision is overwhelmingly championed or rejected, this is a fruitless debate.

Seriously! Maybe American boys and men just don't know how to take care of their penises or something... I just don't understand why there are so many with issues!!

Quoting kthx.:" I disagree. It's a cosmetic surgery and should be done with the child asks for it. It won't be at 3 years ... [snip!] ... for properly. So using the whole, "Mother knows best. I'm gonna do what I want." is silly. It's still an unnecessary surgery."


And dangerous. Sometimes children have to be protected from their own parents.

Sometimes they do, sure. This isn't a good example of that, though.
