Of course it is. But when you have no one telling you that it's not needed, sometimes you make the wrong choice, in hindsight.

A lot of Jews will not circ anymore. They just have Brit M......?



ugh.... Brit.... something. Its the exact same thing minus circumcisions.
and Biblical circumcision is entirely different then what the US does now.
Back then, they barely cut the tip off, they didnt remove the entire organ.

Exactly, another person's religion ends where another's body begins.

Its been illegal for infant girls since March 1997, its already technically illegal for infant boys too thanks to the 14th amendment. However, there is some loophole allowing it, prolly cuz they (hospitals/doctors) make at least $560 per foreskin selling them to makeup companies

I clicked this to see what was humorous about circumcision. and then instead of responding right away I had to read the entire thread especially after seeing the first page or so of comments. I find the OP funny but really sad that its true in a way. no matter how many women want to come in saying that its not true, it really is for SO many moms. I have 3 friends with boys who all circed and they had the same reasons "its cleaner. its like daddy" thats it. I even gave them the appropriate information while pregnant to try to get to them to NOT circumsize. But they did it, one of them regretted it almost immediately. (she saw how much pain her son was in afterward every time she changed his diaper or held him in a way that she put pressure on his groin) and knew it wasnt just infant crying for nothing) I honestly do hope that it becomes illegal to electively circ minors. I use to think to each their own but really so many moms are ill informed and only do it because they think its "easier" or because their SO/DH/BD wants it done. It's illegal to circ a girl so really why should boys have to get it done because of their mothers' ignorance?
