Quote from: Bluewind on April 14, 2016, 10:15:33 PMI have to say, I'm really enjoying this conversation. Everyone is bring up some great relative points. I love how Nonsense i put it saying that men are divided depending on how they themselves look. I really wish that the procedure had a minimum age it could be preformed unless it was done for a medically necessary reason or (maybe) if a parent was Jewish or one of the religions that REQUIRE it (not encourage or are neutral about). Otherwise, they can wait until the age of consent (18 or older) and if they want it done, they can get it done and if not, they get to stay intact. After all, you can't uncut a foreskin. ;)
Quote from: Nonsensei on April 14, 2016, 11:19:49 PMI think its worth pointing out that if we wait until guys are 18 and let them decide, probably not very many guys would elect to have it done. I bet the practice would die out rather quickly if we left it up to the guy.
Quote from: PickelledEggs on April 15, 2016, 02:35:08 AMIsn't that the point?And yeah. Some women think it's weird, but that is also because in societies where circumcision is the norm, by default, it leaves people with uncircumcised dicks as the abnorma, aka "weird". And weird grosses people out.
Quote from: Mermaid on April 14, 2016, 08:00:35 PMI have heard a lot of women say this. It makes me sad. The most common reason I hear for doing it is that they want their kid's penis to look like Dad's. I am a woman, so I don't know a lot about the psychology of that. How important is that to boys?
Quote from: Bluewind on April 15, 2016, 04:56:09 AMYes it does. I'm just saying that that makes what the medical staff is doing immoral because they are well educated people who should put their foot down on the matter. By endorsing and outright encouraging it, they are causing laypeople to believe that it is the correct thing to do. If they can't refused to do it or actively disagree, they could at least discouraged parents from doing it. I think the numbers would go down then.
Quote from: Mr.Obvious on April 15, 2016, 11:51:39 AMOh, Well i was just talking about The parents. I have to ask though; do doctors really, ActiveLy encourage this practice where you live? I can't relate because it is not being encouraged where i'm from. If it is really ActiveLy encouraged by docs; yeah that shit Should stop.
