We take our kids to the doctor, get them up for school, and make them do all kinds of stuff without permission.
We cut hair the way we want and we dress them up, All without consent. Some cram religion down kids throats.
I'm telling you with skin, and lady's that it is better off gone.
I don't hear anyone saying we should not cut the cord at birth. There is your first gruesome mutilation.
Come on...grow a pair and get over this sensational bs
Who wants to see porn with foreskin?

I believe that circumcision plays a role in comprising men at birth by emasculating them on a deep psychological level. How can anyone argue that it is wrong for women to be sexually compromised but acceptable to abuse males?
Subjects and Methods. Circumcision status was ascertained by a combination of pathology reports, medical record review, and questionnaires for 213 adult male members of a large prepaid health plan who were diagnosed with IPC or CIS. Subjects and Methods. Circumcision status was ascertained by a combination of pathology reports, medical record review, and questionnaires for 213 adult male members of a large prepaid health plan who were diagnosed with IPC or CIS.
Results. Of 89 men with IPC whose circumcision status was known, 2 (2.3%) had been circumcised as newborns, and 87 were not circumcised. Of 118 men with CIS whose circumcision status was known, 16 (15.7%) had been circumcised as newborns.
Conclusions. Our results confirm the highly protective effect of newborn circumcision against IPC and the less protective effect against CIS.
The highest proportions of CD4+ T cells and LCs occurred in patients with a history of infection. Foreskin immune cells expressed predominantly the CCR5 HIV-1 co-receptor. Adult foreskin mucosa had greater susceptibility to infection with HIVbal than cervical mucosa or the external surface of foreskin tissue. Circumcision likely reduces risk of HIV-1 acquisition in men by decreasing HIV-1 target cells.

Fact is, a lot of males in the US get circumdcized. Including doctors, and the children of doctors. If it was truley the savage process that it is, why is the medical community doing it?

This is one case where feminists can be kind of stupid. How can female circumcision be a crime against humanity and represent female oppression while male circumcision is just routine medical procedure? DOUBLE STANDARD!
