    what kind of medical emergency is so critical that a partial birth abortion on a viable child is necessary instead of an emergency C-section?
    36 states ban it outright, and nationally the method usually used to performing it is banned.

    Presumably, such a medical emergency would make the fetus inviable. Would you like a list of pregnancy complications that can be fatal for the woman, or fetus, or both?

The surgery itself is a long, long way away from giving the sorts of results men who get it are looking for, but it wouldn't be there if not for demand. Specifically, a demand by men who feel they were robbed of something (even if it's only their bodily sovreignty) by being circumcised non-consensually. Comparing it to a rare and fringe procedure performed usually out of curiosity that isn't even popular enough to be performed in mainstream settings is, again, ridiculous. You have a habit of making ridiculous arugments.

    Do you have an intent to address anything relevant to the argument at all?
    Sorry you dislike my arguements. The demand for lopping it completely off is growing also.......means nothing to me.

    Not true but I would agree that this is for another topic.

    In order to understand how ridiculous this is, you have to know what the per-exposure transmission rates for HIV are.

    All forms of sexual exposure apart from receptive anal sex have a per-exposure transmission rate of significantly less than 1%.

    Thus, a 2% reduction in transmission risk due to circumcision means you could carry out the decimal 3 or 4 places and the number would still be exactly the same as the risk uncirc'ed. That is how tiny of a benefit we're talking about. It is completely pointless.

    Complications are only the result of surgery or other medical operations.

    There are some advantages to circumcision but they are canceled out by the drawbacks. Only in rare occasions would it be worth trading one risk for another. E.G., if you are prone to a very specific type of urinary tract infection.

    so adding some insignificant medical procedure will magically make it all better?

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Especially when it affects them in absolutely no form.

    yes, because all liberals want to ban circumcision and banning circumcision is a central tenet of liberalism
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Re: Should male circumcision be banned?

    Of course, any difference between the susceptibility of a circumcised or non circumcised penis no longer matters at all if you simply wear a condom. Wearing a condom is a much more reliable method of STD infection than chopping off part of your body. Relying on anything less effective is just plain stupid.

    Let's drop the whole 2% chance of contracting an STD thing. If you're not 100% sure your partner is safe, wear a condom. That's all there is to it.
