Um... whats so bad about circumcision? Isnt it supposed to make the **** tidier? Oh, God, that was awkward!
I didn't say it was bad, Masha. I said I don't agree with it and didn't do it.
In decades/generations gone past it was the normal thing perhaps. But i think times have changed, and to my knowledge doctors now do not go and willy-nilly circumsize male babies for the hell of it. Could be wrong though. Regardless, they were born with a foreskin, so that's how they'll be as far as I'm concerned.
We are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OT!!!

Nah, got nothing more to say...for once.
I wasn't referring to you, DA I saw that you said you didn't xD
Masha, in today's society, circumcision has been found to be completely pointless, putting a tiny infant through horrendous pain for cosmetic reasons (such as for my parents and my little brother ), with ZERO medical benefits, unless there is damage done later in life.
Is that comparable to cropping? I think so I think circumcision is much much worse however. Quoted from the below link:
"The risks of circumcision include bleeding, infection, damage to the glans and frenulum, excessive skin removal, scarring, loss of penis, and even death. Infant circumcision carries more risks than adult circumcision, as a baby’s penis is very small and difficult to operate on, and more penile skin is removed than in adults. Excessive tissue removal is a common problem, and this can cause painful erections and even restrict the growth of the penis at puberty."
All this because in Elizabethan times, it was thought to deter young males from masturbating and "keep it cleaner" (back when people didn't bath for long periods of time ). Absolutely pointless procedure.
i'm pretty sure tht some circumcisions are performed for valid medical reasons on slightly older children under anaesthetic
If this is TMI please let me know and I'll refuse it, but apparently it is a common thing and I think that adult circumcision is a good thing in this kind of case. Hope that makes sense and I really really hope people aren't too grossed out by it.
