I am not circumcised and honestly I dont think it makes any difference what so ever. People say its more sanitary to be or not to be. I think the only difference is the cosmetics of it really.

Ya ...putting a blade to an infant boy's penis is bad. It is a massive perversion. MASSIVE!

I dont think it really matters to anyone. Nobody remembers the circumcision or the pain it supposedly inflicts. Too many ppl give it too much thought imo.

I've not really developed a solid opinion on it.  I'd say if I had a son, I'd probably go ahead and skip it unless it becomes medically necessary - which would not happen until later in life as is.  I think it's becoming more and more common to skip out on doing it, since I've met and spoken with more men who have not been circumsized than men who have been.

I cannot even believe that people do this. It is such a massive act of degradation, yet it goes on. It is a total violation. Understand that your parents and your "doctors" are mindless scum.

not to mention the double standard that says it's "ok" to mutilate the male's genitalia...even a celebration/ceremony for some...

and then to not have the same "standard" for mutilating the female's genitalia...

it's a barbaric and sadistic practice either way and it should cease...

after the first parents are found guilty of male mutilation it will send a strong signal that it should cease...

otherwise, advocates against it should continue to display photos and videos of the clitoris being hacked off with a piece of broken glass...or a tin can lid...

sick fuckers...really sick...


look at it this way...

today, in many countries, if you walked into a religious ceremony where a male infant's genitalia were being mutilated...and you rescued the infant, and destroyed the perpetrators...that would be frowned upon...

shame shit, different skin...

today, in many countries, if you walked into a religious ceremony where a female's genitalia were being mutilated...and you rescued the infant, and destroyed the perpetrators...you'd be a hero...

go figure...

sick

ask how I really feel

enjoy!

I was not circumcised, on account of my hippie mother. I have some serious reservations about doing it to infants. Although I recognize it as a trait of Abrahamic faiths.  I'm currently operating on a minority opinion that adult male converts don't have to get circumcised. Although recently I've been thinking I might do it anyway, because having experienced both would be more interesting and valuable than whatever sensation I might lose. Personally, I like the way more traditional North African tribes handle it. Infants are not circumcised, but there is a social understanding of it as a rite of passage. A young boy informs his family when he wants it done, not the other way around. The average age is between 7 and 14. I'm basing this on the account of an Algerian friend of mine who I had this discussion with. People first conceptualized circumcising infants as a mercy because they wouldn't remember it, never considering the importance of consent. I think the damage is two fold. First, alot of people really resent the decision. Second, I think the abandonment of traditional rites of passage, in whatever form, is a serious contributing factor to the infantization of our adolescents.

You truly are a......different thinker, MuslimAgorist.  I can't say that I have ever seriously considered cutting off a part of my body simply because knowing the experience of both having it and not having it would be "interesting and valuable." 

As for the North Africans-- what if the boy decides that he never wants to get circumcised?  What happens to him then?

Body modification isn't inherently good or bad.

however permanently modifying someones body without consent is immoral whatever you're doing, even if you think you're helping them.

I really can't fathom a parent who would want to circumcise their child before they can have any say in the matter whatsoever. More bullshit parenting based on having a legacy in your image instead of helping raise a sentient life.

As far as the merits of circumcision, the only tangible benefit is if you are having sex with someone who has HIV without a condom you're less likely to contract HIV, which I can't recommend as an effective method of not contracting HIV. Also in some countries circumcision is the norm, so if you're the kind of person who wants to do what everyone else is doing, then I guess thats another benefit, although doing things purely to fit in with other people is one of the most fucking idiotic human traits there is.

edit: I'd like an option on the poll that says only forced circumcision is bad. Personally I think its stupid, and I'm glad my parents didn't get me circumcised, but if you're making the decision yourself, its a personal choice, just like anything else, I wouldn't call it bad if its what someone wants for themselves.
