    No, it isn't a basic human right.
    And your parents have the right to bring you up in their beliefs. Your choice comes afterwards.
    And it is none of your business.

    Sorry, but nobody has the right to force religious beliefs down my throat, especially through genital mutilation. Determining what parts of my body stay on me are my business alone, no one else'

    Obviously parents are. And removing extra skin really isn't mutilation.

    Ironically, I have a full body massage and pedicure scheduled for today, too.! Must be some atavistic thing going on here...getting ready to welcome a new year in looking our very best?

    Isn't circumcision a common practice here in America, performed without the child's consent.

    Sadly, yes.

    My viewpoint is, all benefits can be gotten when the child is old enough to both decide for themselves and they're sexually active.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    An intact, un-mutilated body is a basic human right.

    And your parents have the right to bring you up in their beliefs.
    But not the right to mutilate their children.

    Too late then.

    It's everybody's business.

    It's not just extra skin. The foreskin is comprised of many sensitive nerve endings:

    That makes it alright?

    So if you cut a part off someone, but drug them first so they won't remember, does that make it all right?
