I think I see the problem. You are under the impression that this is all about "visually appealing", and you compare it to other cosmetic procedures. That is an unfair parallel.

My personal beliefs are that the Jewish people are intelligent, can manage their own personal lives, and it's presumptuous to assume they need my -or your- advice.

I didn't get my boys cut. I saw absolutely no reason why I should. The whole idea just freaked me out anyway.
I might get cancer or an infection in my big toe, don't mean It should be cut off at birth!

A circumcision ritual practiced by some Orthodox Jews has alarmed city health officials, who say it may have led to three cases of herpes - one of them fatal - in infants.


It goes on to say...


The practice is known as oral suction, or in Hebrew, metzitzah b'peh: after removing the foreskin of the penis, the practitioner, or mohel, sucks the blood from the wound to clean it

www.nytimes.com...

Should have made the cartoon include a vampire....with herpes.

Oral sex by the time you're 8 days old....looks like they have something to brag about to their pals.

Don't have to worry about that "before graduation" stuff...which is convenient.

Ah, one more comment before I leave this thread, and that is I don't know why everyone is pretending like only Jewish people are circumcised. Pleeze. It has been typical for Americans, and most civilized societies. If that changes, and it goes out of vogue, whatev.

And by the way, it is more visually appealing.

I've always thought that this was a really odd and disturbing practice. I wouldnt peirce a childs ears let alone a proceedure like this. There are health benefits, but this is also a lot to due with poor male hygene as most males dont wash the part of the penis the foreskin covers and aparently the build up that occurs from the natural secretions of the penis can cause cancer eventually if it is regularly not cleaned, thus removing the old yucky stuff.

Despite really not liking circumstision ive always felt that I cant say so as I will be labelled as intorolent of other peoples beliefs. I just dont like the idea of inflicting this on a child who cant make the concious decision themsleves. I apologise for not understanding this practices importance to the jewish faith but I just dont get how it can be so importtant?!?!? It really makes no sense to me at all how integral they say it is and I have never heard a reason why.

On a lighter note what % of americans are cut? In the UK hardly anyone but Jews are. When being forced to watch sex and the city with my girlfriend once tho the episode featured one of them dating a guy who was not cut and this aparently was a huge deal an she hated it not being that way. AS if they only sleep with jewish people and anyone else is too unsophisticated for those 4 trendy, successfull dirt whores! Anyway why do they act in the show that its so common? Do Americans (or just New Yorkers) practice it at birth or something?!?!

Nope. Here it is not just a New York thing, and it's not just a Jewish thing. I don't know, maybe it's a class thing? I know they cost money (it's done soon after birth - during infancy, usually before the baby leaves the hospital) so maybe the poor can't afford it?

Anyway, I don't really care. I just don't like seeing people finding another way to criticize Jewish people.

I don't think that many Europeans are circumcised - I could be wrong though?

Well, I live in a highly civilised society and I am not circumcised nor are any of my friends!

I have lived and know people in many European countries, and not many of the were circumcised - and those few I know who are circumcised did it for some medical reasons, and not when they were babies.

In Arthur C. Clarke's "3001, The Final Odyessy";

In the future 1000 years distant circumcision is considered mutilation and barbaric.

And they didn't need viagra.


The foreskin is there for a reason, anyone that thinks it's dirty doesn't know how to
wash and anyone who thinks it causes diseases is denying hundreds of thousands
of years where mankind seemed to do just fine without having their genitals cut.

It is a religious practice, nothing more.

Thats interesting I always thought it was purely a religious thing (well here it is anyway) I dont like criticising peoples beliefs, they have a right to believe what religion they want to. I just dont agree with inflicting pain on a child against their consent

Stop the presses! Now that the Jews can understand how the Muslims feel anout offensive religious cartoons, maybe they all now have common ground to start discussing a Middle East peace.

Not meant to be sarcastic. I do wish everyone understanding and peace.

Wrong, America is the only industrialized country in the world in which circumcision is common.

is the appendix there for a reason?

the evolution argument fails because it implies we are perfect.

personally, i like my cut penis. it looks good, i couldnt imagine it looking any other way. i think the foreskin makes it look like a burrito or something. i couldnt cut a son or daughter like that but im glad i dont have my foreskin.

Just another lousy excuse for haters to spread venom. Control freaks always want to control other peoples lives. It is always a tiny minority, but with load voices and most of them just want attention. If this cause did not come along, they would invent one.

It's easy to envision another Holocaust reading all the Jewish hate threads here. No intelligent person is being fooled here. This is about hating Jews and the rest is just cover. Oddly enough most Jew Haters consider themselves Progressives.

The Nazi's were Progressives and now the Progressives are taking over here and heading the exact same way. Pick a group to hate and use that to control people. Same thing exactly.

One of the biggest lies going is that Progressives give a damn about anything or anyone but themselves. Progressives are willing to bring us all down to get their way and to get the attention they crave in their insane Narcissism and hate for anyone different than them.

The problem is not circumcision. The problem is the Haters who are taking power. There is a reason that Progressives ignore history and keep repeating it. Progressives think things went bad because they were not in charge, when in fact people just like them were in charge. Stalin, Hitler, Mao and now the Progressives who are destroying the Western World are cut from the same cloth.

Imagine people who argue in favor of late term abortions and committing infanticide are actually screaming a Jewish practice is evil or wrong? Come on, get real. You will make lousy Dictators and you always have. Why do you think San Francisco is the laughing stock of America? What fool would live there and pay those insane prices if they were not half nutty to begin with.

I'm not Jewish, I am circumcised and I prefer it. Perhaps its jealousy after all


God I hope you folks don't get complete control as it will turn the Western World into a hell and guess what; it will be just as bad for you. In the same way you don't care about anyone but yourselves, your own leaders could care less about you.

You are cutting flesh from a child without his/her consent. I see no difference.

You ever hear correlation does not imply causation? What logical reason is there to think that cutting off foreskin can actually reduce cancer? What kind of Cancer? Penis Cancer? Is this a big issue with men who aren't cut?

Anyway, as for the OP

The guy's name is Hess haha now that's kind of funny.

I don't see a problem with the comic. Going around chopping off parts of baby boy's penises doesn't really seem like something that should be off limits to make a comic book about. That sounds kind of wrong. I mean shouldn't be off limits to demonize people that go around chopping off bits of babies penises.

I guess we shouldn't send children to doctors without their consent.

That's how your logic sounds. If cutting the skin is beneficial then a child's consent is not necessary, just like sending a child to the doctors.
