Hey, don't blame me. I stopped bathing years ago.and here was me thinking America was becoming more european
If your only argument is based on the fact it degrades appearance and that is only based on the fact that it CHANGES the appearance than I take it if you have a child you would never ever ever ever ever cut its hear because then you'd be mutilating your child. Better remove clipping finger or toe nails as well. Also, make sure you never actually forcefully pull out a lose tooth on your kid because if it doesn't happen naturally you're mutilating them because you're changing their appearance. What a horrendous parent you'd be! You'd possibly be mutilating your kid like every few weeks!

This election began like a car wreck; a bad thing, but I couldn't help but look away. It's now more like a beheading video; a sickening display where I can't hit the red X fast enough.
Sure, it's not considered mutilation by most people in the US, but in over half the world - where the practice is NOT common - it most certainly IS mutilation.
No, a better analogy would be to cut off the female infant's outer labia or clitoral hood. That wouldn't be mutilation either, by your standard.
Better to let the child decide for themselves if they want part of their body removed.
Its a cultural practice that doesn't have any negative effects. I don't see why people get so up in arms about it, as if its a big deal whether or not a kid gets circ'ed. Its not as if its done to keep a man down or something. Hopefully my son won't think he's less of a man, because he's missing a little bit of foreskin. If he does, I haven't raised him right.

I say to each his own. I'm wouldn't do it to a son of mine because I see no purpose in doing that.
I also won't prevent anyone from doing it to their kid if they want because I see no purpose in doing that.
