    IC. Interesting that it's the culture to pierce baby girls' ears but not cut the skin on baby boys' peens.

    Pierced ears grow back.

    I find it troubling that people are so quick to turn to genital mutilation to solve problems that are easily enough addressed by good personal hygiene and responsible sexual practices.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Exactly. Their reason for mutilating a child's genitals is "because it's ugly". WTF?

    My son's nephrologist recommended it for medical reasons.

    Jewish people have been doing it for years.

    I could see the concern if the removal of the skin (1) impacted the man's ability to urinate; (2) impacted the man's ability to have an orgasm; and/or (3) impacted the whole functioning of the penis.

    There's no reason for piercing ears other than beauty.

    Try telling an 8 year old boy to USE SOAP in the shower. If he doesn't care about the crud under his nails, on his face or in his crack, he's not gonna care about anything unseen under the foreskin. It's not until you boys start realizing that's something special down there that you acually start taking care of it.

    And yet the AAP doesn't recommend it for any reason.

    In 1975, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) stated in no uncertain terms that "there is no absolute medical indication for routine circumcision of the newborn." In 1983, the AAP and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) restated this position. In 1999 and again in 2005, the AAP again restated this position of equivocation.

    So do you think it's wrong to pierce a baby's ears?

    I read that as saying there is no medical reason to do it. I don't read as saying they don't recommend it.
