    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.
    You know, I've met some men who believe that crap to the extent that they think they are exempt. I have news for you. Being circ'ed doesn't make it any more pleasant.

    We have a cure for it, though. It's called a shower.

    You know, in the desert where people bath with sand, it wouldn't really work.

    If all males were just aborted, it would take this issue off the table and solve many other problems.

    Yes, because so many people are desert nomads in the United States.

    Re: Should male circumcision be banned?

    Can we stop with the stupid tangents here? What we're talking about is the permanent disfigurement of an infant. Without his knowledge or consent. Even a parent should not have that kind of control over their child. Bodily sovereignty, remember? It's my body, my penis, and I don't want anyone messing with it without my permission. If circumcision is such a good idea, let consenting and informed adults choose to do it to their own bodies. Anything less is child abuse.

    Again, the point is this. Do not do it to children. Let consenting adults choose for themselves.

    But then there'd be no-one smart enough to run the world.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    You know what's so funny? In August of 2009, their President, Barack Obama, wanted to make male circumcision mandatory.

    Let's put it this way, it was done to me when I was a baby, and my wife and I have no problems sexually whatsoever. As a matter of fact, we both wear each other out.

    This came out August 25, 2009.

    Will Obama Appoint a Circumcision Czar?


    The Centers for Disease Control Are Preparing to Recommend Mandatory Circumcision for American Boys as an AIDS Prevention Measure.

    Patterico explains why this is stupid:


    He and other experts acknowledged that although the clinical trials of circumcision in Africa had dramatic results, the effects of circumcision in the United States were likely to be more muted because the disease is less prevalent here, spreads through different routes, and the health systems are so disparate as to be incomparable.

    Clinical trials in Kenya, South Africa and Uganda found that heterosexual men who were circumcised were up to 60 percent less likely to become infected with HIV over the course of the trials than those who were not circumcised. There is little to no evidence that circumcision protects men who have sex with men from infection. Another reason circumcision would have less effect in the United States is that some 79 percent of adult American men are already circumcised, public health officials say.”
