Your perspective would be enhanced by replacing 'circumcision' with 'male genital mutilation'. Drinking Beverage

I don't think they're the same. My perspective is that circumcision is no big deal, and female genital mutilation is a huge problem.

I would not participate in any effort to curb circumcision, but part of my motive for coming to this forum was to learn how other's think. I can't always do that directly, but by turning this concept around into something I can relate to, I can better understand how some people may feel about my religious practice.

Circumcision is most definitely not "no big deal". It is genital mutilation and a human rights violation.
Far more males are mutilated than females.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Given that everything you said after that had fuck all to do with any statement I made, you obviously can.

Right, so I can understand a little bit more how other people view things by trying to relate. I want to see things from another person's perspective because this helps me learn and grow. ....it's why I came to this forum.

I don't see where the disconnect is.

(21-05-2016 07:35 PM)Vosur Wrote:  The double standard is that female infants are granted the right to bodily integrity while male infants are not. The extent to which this right is violated is, again, completely irrelevant because the law forbids any and all female circumcision methods, even those that are equally or less severe than their male counterparts.

I just figured it was a woman's idea to densensitive a man's penis so he could last longer than 10 seconds.

Lol!

Moved thread to the coliseum because it didn't really belong in the coffeehouse and was a debatable subject.

Pffft! Even in your world non-gay women have an interest in sex with men.

I just got it, sorry. Also sure society doesn't care about men, I mean you are still wondering if circumcision is bad or not for men.

According to a report in the 2012 Scientific World Journal circumcision is "a relatively safe procedure with a low overall complication rate. Most complications are minor and can be managed easily..." and "Severe complications are quite rare...".

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
