    Well that would be dumb we need boobies you could reduce the size if they were to big. I get my dick caught in my zipper from time to time so I could only imagine having a skin sock would make the chances increase.

    I get involved in topics like this once in awhile and then I ask myself why. We are never going to ban the procedure so it's really a waste of time to bother.

    Best thing to come out of this thread.

    3. High risk of changes or even dysfunction in sexual function (in fact, this is why we started doing it in the West - to try to stop boys from masturbating by make them less sensitive - it was NOT for hygiene reasons).
    4. No significant advantages (the hygiene thing is total bogus, most boys' foreskins work just fine or can be made to with minor stretching, the STD claims are wildly exaggerated).
    5. Removes as much as 80% of the nerve endings in the penis and finally...
    6. It is performed on a NON-CONSENTING individual, and it cannot be undone. Even if none of the above were true I would still be against it for this reason.

    Temporal is right; it's genital mutilation as much as FGM is. Why we still tolerate performing it on infants in this country is so beyond me.
    Wholeheartledly agree. Let the boy become an adult where he can decide for himself. Of course, then you'll find almost no male would have it done.

    Case rested.

    keep it legal. But the male in question may only get it by their own free will starting at age 16.

    @shanners
    I concur, but, allowing an adult male to make up his own mind when it comes to surgically removing a part of his penis…it’s anarchy!
    I still do not think we need a law, but, maybe black market circumcision is what the economy needs, eh?
    I say, parents (not forced by law) should allow their son to grow into adulthood so he can make his own educated decision on circumcision.
    If I was given a choice I would not have gone with circumcision but, some may find whatever was good for the ancient Egyptians is good for them.

    They could do it for religion too. Let an adult choose, and not have it forced upon them before they can resist.

    1) I am shocked that anyone could have possibly voted "Yes" in this poll.
    2) This is both a medical procedure and a religious rite. How can such a thing be banned?
    3) I live near San Francisco and am forced to go there on occasion. The place is a cesspool of filth and my stomach turns every time I go. Any ballot measure coming out of SF is almost guaranteed to be alien to human thinking.

    Because circumcision has mainly utilitarian function. Every uncircumcised man that has spent a couple of days at temperatures 40 C and above can tell you what happens with his dick (not a pretty picture, not a pleasant smell too). And with water supply hardly enough for drinking, you can imagine how men in that part of the world (Middle East, desert) could maintain hygiene.
    The Lord of the Jews knew that, so he order circumcision for his flock to save it from trouble. It's that simple.

    Sorry if I repeat somebody else, no time to read the whole thread.
