^^ You are not going to believe how this circumcision went fatally wrong. ^^
As if a procedure where a boy "only" loses the best part of his penis is OK? Forced genital cutting should be outlawed, period. NOT ONE national medical association on earth endorses routine infant circumcision.
I'm fine with adults making an informed decision to get circumcised.
Most of the US men who have died of AIDS were circumcised at birth. AIDS is as common in Israel as it is in non-circumcising Japan.
Half of African nations have higher HIV incidence among the circumcised.
A 2009 Ugandan research project found 50% more male-to-female HIV transmission among the men they circumcised.
Foreskin feels REALLY good. Most of the world does not circumcise, for good reason.
Sorry but anyone taking this choice away from the one person affected by it is a monster.
Foreskin feels really good. Over 80% of the world is intact, and the infant cutting rate in the US is down to about 50/50.
The foreskin includes over half his pleasure-receptive nerve endings and about 15 square inches of sensual interface. It protects the glans and mucosa and allows an exquisite frictionless rolling/gliding action during intimacy for him and his partner.
Your child will grow to be a sexual adult who can make his own choices about hygiene and how to thwart STDs from data then available. My choices would be 1) Wash, and 2) Use a condom and other proven safer sex practices rather than give up a huge measure of sexual fulfillment for a supposed slight reduction in risk.
Every mammal on earth has been evolving a prepuce for about 65 million years. Why do humans suddenly in the last few thousand years need surgical correction at birth?
Even a pin-poke to draw a ceremonial drop of blood from a female is an illegal outrage for 94% of the world's people. How can it be legal to do significant cosmetic genital reductions on boys?
It's HIS body, and it's HIS decision.
