    Re: Call for higher circumcision rate

    I'm so glad I had a girl. Since I didn't find out the sex the nurse kept trying to pressure me to have things ready for a circumcision if it was a boy. Even though I told her we weren't going to do it, she still wanted to have things ready just in case. She really got on my nerves.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    A nurse doing that is why my parents had me circumcised.

    If a nurse tries that **** with my kid, she'll be told in no uncertain terms to **** off.

    And I am sure that if medical practitioners were no so culturally enamored against cutting the clitoral hood, that you could find plenty of medical reasons as to why it would be a good idea...

    You seem to be ignoring the cultural bias.

    In the UK and Australia the medical recommendations state that circumcision only be carried out if medically [/B]necessary.

    If this is so, why do American medicos' still recommend, that circumcision is medically a good idea, when it is not absolutely necessary?

    When we are dealing with procedures that are not necessary, then consent is fundamentally important.

    It amazes me, that consequentialists arguments are employed; if the same premise was applied to a generic government action that affected adults in some way, and if Government rationalized that it "is ok, because you won't notice".....I'm sure that many people would reject, this abrogation of consent, or initiation of force. But apparently this principle of consent, should not apply to parents, because when it comes to non-necessary medical procedures, parents should be able to ignore consent.

    Nice. Good to know that people can abrogate consent on the flimsiest of rational.

    They tried to do that with my sister and my nephew. She took Tucker's approach and told them to **** off and shove their mutilation intentions where the sun doesn't shine.

    Re: Call for higher circumcision rate

    There was an interesting article in today's Washington Post. Apparently, people want a federal law banning circumcision. Oh brother. But there was an exchange described in the article that literally made me laugh out loud.

    Rallying in the Name of the Unkindest Cut?

    'Intactivists' Cut to the Chase About Circumcision Issue
    A young guy sticks his buzzed head out of a white minivan as the marchers pass through a crosswalk on Pennsylvania.

    "Circumcision increases sensation!" he shouts, in response to one of the protest signs.

    "No, it causes premature ejaculation!" says Marilyn Milos, a former nurse and founder of the National Organization of Circumcision Information Resource Centers.

    "That's never happened to me!" the guy yells back.

    "Yeah, right!"


    But check this out from the article:

    a guy from Chicago who mass-produces (in his basement) an apparatus that he says allows men to grow back foreskin.
    I'm just relieved that with my son, the job is done. If he hates me when he gets older, I'll accept it, but I don't think this would be the cause of any anger he has towards me.

    Has anyone considered why the foreskin exists?

    Re: Call for higher circumcision rate

    I am in favor of universal circumcision. If everyone was circumcised, then politicians would have no heads, and therefore no mouths.

    Please stop using the word "mutilate." It's preposterous. I am not a mutilated individual. I rather like my member the way it is. Very clean and smooth looking.
