Actually it is… Your child doesn’t have rights to make decisions like that until they are 18.

Your child is born with the right to bodily autonomy. Circumcision is a violation of that right.

Well I’m not having my child rediculed and mocked for having a dirty uncircumcised penis. Circumcision makes everyone’s life easier. Cleaner penises , easier for mother and child to clean. And looks better. Why make your child suffer later in life if you don’t need to. Exactly.

>cleaner penises

It’s no more difficult to clean an uncircumcised penis than a circumcised one.

>easier for mother and child to clean

The mother has no extra work to do, because there is no need to retract the foreskin to clean under it as it is fused to the glans until later in life.

>looks better

Your aesthetic preferences are not a good enough reason to mutilate a child. Also, why do you care? You’re not going to be using your sons penis.

>Why make your child suffer later in life if you don’t need to.

Circumcision decreases penile sensitivity

Circumcision associated with sexual difficulties

Circumcision linked to alexithymia

The exaggeration of the benefits of circumcision in regards to HIV/AIDS transmission

Circumcision/HIV claims are based on insufficient evidence

There is no case for the widespread implementation of circumcision as a preventative measure to stop transmission of AIDS/HIV

Circumcision decreases sexual pleasure

Circumcision decreases efficiency of nerve response in the glans of the penis

Circumcision policy is influenced by psychosocial factors rather than alleged health benefits

Circumcision linked to pain, trauma, and psychosexual sequelae

Circumcision results in significant loss of erogenous tissue

Circumcision has negligible benefit

Neonatal circumcision linked to pain and trauma

Circumcision may lead to need for increased care and medical attention in the first 3 years of life

Circumcision linked to psychological trauma

Circumcision may lead to abnormal brain development and subsequent deviations in behavior

What was that about “suffering later in life”?

Exactly.

From any male I talk to they prefer it. And all of the men I grew up with who were uncircumcised became circumcised as adults and wished their parents had done it, I’m not saying you have to, but don’t take away someone else’s right to do it to their child. Be it for religious reasons or personal preference. Regardless of anything anyone says my son will be circumcised.

They only “wish their parents had done it” because of the way our society treats the issue. You think it’s anything like that in most European countries? Hell no. Most European men are uncircumcised.

America is essentially the only country in western society that still performs such a barbaric practice outside of religion. 

And parents do not have a right to physically alter their child’s body “just because”. There is literally no justification for it. Any justification you come up with can and has been used to justify female genital mutilation.

If grown men want to get circumcised, that’s fine. But let them make that decision for themselves. It’s their’s to make, not anybody else’s.
