Forums - General Discussion - Circumcision - Yes or No?

It’s mutilation that serves no purpose whatsoever, a silly religious tradition that doesn’t even make sense (if God created you with foreskin aren’t you supposed to have it?). Same for nature actually. It’s there, it evolved that way, so it has to be good for something.

If there’s no immediate medical reason, I would never do it.

Mutilate an innocent baby? Why would anybody want to do that?



No, why would you perform unnecessary  surgery on your perfectly healthy boy

A big "No" here, if he wants to cut off his penis skin when he is older then he can get it done himself  

Here in Australia is was very common before the 90's but is now virtually down to zero, during the transition people where respectful so it was never an issue with kids



I'm actually baffled about the proposed benefits. How the fuck does it make the penis cleaner and less prone to diseases when you take away all the protection it has and subject it to outside influences? One would think the protection is there for a reason.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Huh, I didn't even know that circumcision was common in the US. Here it's only done by Muslims and Jews, or for medical reasons.

It's pretty pointless, so I'd say don't do it, but it's not like it's something that matters much.



Yeah Im against this too, there really is no logical reason to do it.

Completely up to you. There are religious and philosophical reasons, but the medical field also has some to say about it. 

 

Circumcision makes it easier to stay clean and reduces the chances of disease. However, that still can be mitigated by simply washing regularly.

Makes it easier to stay clean for people that do not wash themselves :p

True but it does almost fully removes the importance of the "easier" part when in first place it is already very easy to keep it clean.

But yeah its easier.
