    I guess my son's specialist is a quack. He knows less than you. So far, he's kept my son's sole kidney in good health. I'll continue to trust him.

    So, it's okay to mutilate someone as long as it doesn't impact the function of the body part mutilated?

    I don't see it as mutilation.

    Why would they recommend something for no medical reason? Because it might be "ugly"?

    I quoted the AAP's stance, which has nothing to do with my own knowledge.

    I pointed out that the quote does not say that the AAP doesn't recommend it--it merely states that they don't think there is a medical reason for it.

    Cutting off a chunk of skin isn't mutilation?

    Well, I think my nephew's arms are too "ugly". Maybe I should take a knife and slice chunks of skin out of his arms. I mean, it won't impact the function of the arms, and *I* don't think it's mutilation.

    Hell, while we're at it, we should cut off my nieces labia and her clitoral hood.

    I assume they made that statement to point out that they don't have a medical reason to recommend it. Do you want to provide the link to that quote so I can read the entire thing?

    But if you notice, that skin would partially grow back because your nephew's body needs it. I don't see skin growing back on a penis because, clearly, the body doesn't need it.
