    Re: Should male circumcision be banned?

    While most people think boob jobs are for enlargement only, I know a couple of women who had to have reduction surgery and one who had an enlargement job because one breast was larger than the other (the larger one was increased slightly and the smaller one made to match otherwise shape would have been off).

    Perhaps it would be better then to focus education to improve the hygiene of men than performing an unnecessary operation simply because some fathers are too lazy to teach their sons how to wield a bar of soap.

    boob jobs and lipo are elective surgeries undertaken by adults who make a choice to have them.

    A baby boy can't elect to anything like that so your analogy falls flat.

    dead horse time: an unborn child can't elect to be aborted either, but many of the same people pissing themselves over circumcision have no problems with abortion.

    One being larger than the other one wouldn't bother me. If you're not getting enough of one, the go to the other and if you're getting too much of that one then go to the smaller one. No problem there.

    And many of the people who cite The Silent Scream to claim that abortion is horrifically painful say that circumcision is okay because babies don't remember it.

    I mean WTF? My parents had me circumcised at birth; I don't give a ****. My son was circumcised at birth; he's never had any problems. Times when I've had to use communal showers or common changing rooms, something like 95% of the men appeared to be circumcised as far as I noticed, and I've yet to meet a single man who's told me it caused him problems or he wished he hadn't been.

    If you don't like it, don't do it. Dayum.
    I'm suing my parents for not suing the doctor after they told him not to, and he did it anyway.

    They're applying the same logic they use from an abortion...that the fetus doesn't remember it.

    If the circumcision was done while in the fetal stage, I'm positive pro-choicers wouldn't be citing the pain of it as a reason against it.
