Circumcision has been known for millennia to prevent various diseases although the exact mechanism was not known until modern science was able to prove things.

I am uncircumcised, and love the feel and way it looks compared to having it look like its been pared back, scared... More

Ahh circumcision. God order the Israelites to be circumcised to set them apart from the rest of humanity. This is where the clean unclean statement came from (thus the Jews were deemed clean and the rest of humanity unclean. They also could not eat fish unless they had fins and scales (no catfish).

Probably because there's a lot of Jews in America. They're all weirdos!!! Uncircumcision in my book is normal. I think circumcision is weird because it's cut off!!! But whatever. Americans are incredibly stupid. That's all.

So by saying circumcised was hygenic, and... More

"cirkdone" is obviously a pro circumcision nut (of which there are many in the US) so don't listen to his intellegent sounding argument that basically amounts to complete nonsense. No doctors or pediatricians (even in the US) claim that circumcision is necessary or that the potential benefits outweight the risks. The... More
