Circumcision is proven to reduce the risk of HIV and a host of other STI's, as well as penile cancer and infections of the glans.
Total exaggeration. If you did research about the subject you would see that for example, penile cancer is extremely rare, and it doesn't stop it from occurring.
There are also problems created which occur more greatly, almost exclusively with circumcision, like inflammation of the opening of the urethra or skin tags and bridges from the healing process, which themselves can create regions that harbor bacteria.
For instance, an uncut friend of mine kept getting a yeast infection in his glans, due to the moisture retention caused by foreskin. He was very hygienic; his body was simply prone to this. The recommended treatment to keep him off Monistat month after month: circumcision. Another friend's glans was dangerously and painfully cut off from blood circulation by excessively tight foreskin, if he got hard the wrong way. The cure: circumcision.
Good, you just made some cases for THERAPEUTIC circumcision, not non-therapeutic circumcision, which is what routine circumcision of infants and children is.
It's fine if a guy wants to cut his own penis, just don't force it onto other people, like children and babies. Anyone who thinks that is ok to do is just ignorant or plain stupid OR protecting their ego because they don't like the fact that they were circumcised and don't want to confront how they've been violated or possibly what they are missing in regard to their 'manhood'.
Also a tight foreskin can be treated without actually cutting everything off, that's just old-school 'medicine'. It's like amputating an arm to treat an infection in it.
And notice that neither case would have ever been an issue were they both circumcised at birth, when it is quick, virtually painless, and highly effective.
You don't know that. You can get yeast infections in other parts of your body AND still suffer other problems.
Circumcision is no more "mutilation" than piercing a baby's ear or removing the excess skin of webbed feet.
That's nice of you to decide that for someone else..
