    Kind of like how people are free to judge the following ignorance by you?

    So, did you research the topic yet? Perhaps figure out how cutting off the foreskin is harmful? Perhaps figure out that it has actual functions that are removed when it is cut off?

    I'm glad your point comes across clearly. It doesn't come across clearly to me. If your point was that this baby is the new Rosa Parks, you're right, it won't ever come across to me. I don't think my grandchildren will learn about this baby in their history classes, and I don't believe we'll have a month recognizing "Children of Gay Couples". Just a hunch.

    Well, I didn't get it either, so I wouldn't rush to the podium just yet.

    It's not harmful. It functions perfectly fine.

    And I am happy to post things opposite from you....just lends to my credibility overall, lol

    No problem. If you had followed all the posts, you may. But that's a bit much to ask after all these pages.

    Actually, it's not because their parents *CHOSE* to send the child to a gender segregated school.

    These are the functions of the foreskin.

    Functions:

    to cover and bond with the synechia so as to permit the development of the mucosal surface of the glans and inner foreskin.
    to protect the glans penis from friction and abrasion throughout life.
    to keep the glans moisturized and soft with emollient oils.
    to lubricate the glans.
    to coat the glans with a waxy protective substance.
    to provide sufficient skin to cover an erection by unfolding.
    to provide an aid to masturbation and foreplay.
    to serve as an aid to penetration.
    to reduce friction and chafing during intercourse.
    to serve as erogenous tissue because of its rich supply of erogenous receptors.
    to contact and stimulate the G-spot of the female partner
    The foreskin/glans combination produce a powerful anti mmicrobial compound called Langerin that keeps the area clean and disease free
    Provides a lubricating function that assists in sexual intercourse.

    Damages when removed besides the loss of the prior functions:

    Neural and vascular damage to the penis.
    50-75% loss of sexual sensitivity.
    Less intense orgasms
    removes 75% of the sexually sensitive tissue of the penis
    By the time the individual reaches their late 30's and early 40's the glans becomes dried out and calloused over with scar tissue from rubbing on clothes and other material the individuals entire life.
    Can cause inability to ejaculate( extremely rare)
    Lubrication

    Your ignorance on this subject is still embarrassing.

    That's what's so funny - the principle is apparently some version of "Discrimination is fine.....so long as in my totally subjective, facts and circumstances test, I determine there was no harm."

    And I can't imagine the principled argument against many Jim Crow laws with that 'principle' at work. "Hey, the black couple couldn't stay in the Hilton, but there was a motel a few miles down the street, had a bed and everything! No harm - it's fine." "What's the problem, they had white AND black bathrooms??" Etc.

    At least the libertarians have a defensible principle - it's nuts, but one can figure it out.
