Circumcision

Are you for or against it? I think it should be illegal.

Don't you hate those rabbis knocking at your door asking you to "Come to bris"?

Re: Circumcision

Agree, the practice should be illegal.

Re: Circumcision

B.S. it really should be up to the individual or even parents of a given reigious group. Like everything else that the libs want to "outlaw", it's none of their damned business what someone else does or doesn't do.

What other species does this? Male or female circumcision?
The Jews and others need to rethink this dumb and dangerous practice.

Well, up to the individual, maybe, but once they're 18 or older. I mean you are really taking a big part of your body off whether it seems like it or not.

And if you want to make this political, you can't want to outlaw gay marriage and then say we should stay out of people's permanent body mutilation practices.

What a dumb-ass answer.

Imagine getting a male circumcision when an adult?
Serious and painful surgery, dumb-ass.

I am not against, and I don't think it should be illegal.

It's an interesting question - the extent to which parents should be free to mutilate their children. I sometimes see toddlers with piercings, and I think to myself 'that's not right'. In the end, I think mutilating your children should be illegal. So far as adults go, I think they have the right to decide what to do with their own bodies.

Hardly. It does happen. For instance, Madonna is rumoured to have insisted that her former husband have the op. It's a very minor procedure under local anaesthetic. Probably less painful than a Prince Albert.

WELL then I guess it would be pretty stupid to get circumcised as an adult then.

I'm strongly against circumcision unless ...

I'm strongly against circumcision unless it is approved by the person receiving it, who should be an adult of sound mind. In NZ, this means they should be at least 16.

No babies should be circumcised unless there is a strong medical reason for doing so.

I'm especially opposed to the circumcision of females. It substantially reduces the amount of physical pleasure they experience during sex. In the case of men, it removes thousands of highly sensitive nerve endings.

I was circumcised myself as a baby and wish that I hadn't been. I had no say in the matter, and of course it is a surgical procedure that cannot be reversed.

Yes, that's fine for the parents, but what about the baby girl whose clitoris gets cut off without her consent? Or the baby boy who loses thousands of nerve endings from the end of his kock?

' You don't have to have the best of everything to get the best out of what you do have'.

He's got a point. If he lets us libs get away with the idea that parents shouldn't be allowed to do physical harm to their children, then we'll want to start saying they shouldn't do mental harm, and where would that end?

On the other hand, what he's saying would seem to be an open licence for peadophiliac relations between parents and their children. After all, what a parent wants to do with their children is none of our damned business (and their are religions which include adult-child sexual relationships)

Re: Circumcision

If you think circumcision is mutilation then what the heck, leave the umbilical cord hanging. Leave it hanging like it is another organ! Circumcision is healthy!

interesting logic

So conversely, you want to outlaw circumcision, I guess you must be okay with outlawing gay marriage? What's it like living in a binary world? Must make things much simpler.

Just a stupid stupid topic

If you were to survey a thousand guys that were circumcised as a baby as to whether or not they would have liked to not be circumcised and then given the choice when they were 18 or what ever. I would dare bet that you wouldn't find 5% that would have had things done differently.

The chicks like em trimmed, the guys like em trimmed. I don't remember having it done. Must not have been that traumatic as a baby. It has been done billions of times.

Just a stupid stupid topic.
