That's like saying we had no consent in being conceived.  True, but irrelevant.  

I'm not turning this into a pissing contest.  You're getting a little overly sensitive.  The numbers are there, choose to believe them or choose not to believe them.  

My issue is with lack of consent. Surgical procedures performed with no compelling medical necessity are a legitimate human rights violation. Which sounds like hyperbole until you see the corruption behind the scenes and learn how the majority of North American ended up being circumcised.  Unsurprisingly, circumcised women frequently express the same gratitude as their male counterparts. Did you know they also show less transmission of HIV? It was one of the less reported findings from one those African Aids studies. 

You're confusing oversensitive with informed. The numbers are indeed there. The methods behind those studies were flawed. Like the ones that proved marijuana lead to heroin use, or the studies that claimed formula was better than breastfeeding. And even if they were correct in their findings, those findings are irrelevant to developed nations. The Australian Academy of Pediatrics have a pretty good statement on this subject that explains it better than I could. It's on their website.

Content Warning: Discussion of potential mutilation and potential violence against children

Fellow penis-havers and penis-lovers, what's your take on circumcision? This may be something of a controversial topic so I'll say upfront that I don't wanna be argumentative about it. Personally, I don't think it's morally justifiable as a practice in the modern day. It's not "more hygienic" like people claim (in fact it can cause a number of hygiene problems in and of itself) and it's typically performed on infants who don't have a say in the matter. Even in terms of religious practice I still think it's dubious at best, (again, not meaning to step on any toes or invalidate the input of people from these religious groups. I'm not religious so take that as you will) at least wait until the person is mature enough to make the decision and believe in the religion themselves before having them participate in that sort of ritual; it shouldn't simply be a commonplace procedure done right after birth. 

I myself am circumcised but despite my beliefs on circumcision being mostly negative I'm not looking to restore my foreskin nor do I hold a lot of stock with  foreskin restoration groups for a number of reasons. Perhaps the silliest of those reasons is that I just don't think foreskin is hot. I dunno what it is but despite being thirsty as all hell, uncircumcised penises are (usually) less attractive to me. This is probably for a number of reasons, for one I didn't even know foreskin existed for an embarrassingly long time, also my scant few experiences involving dicks were all with other circumcised people. Unfortunately I think I'm in the majority in this case, atleast where I live. Because of how commonplace circumcision has become, I've seen people who aren't very charitable to uncircumcised people or are equally as uneducated as I once was and think foreskin's "icky" or "unnatural". 

Peefolks who are dick-owners and/or dick-enjoyers, lemme know your two cents! Also, sorry uncircumcised folks for validating you in the first half then calling you less attractive in the second half. Feel free to dick me down sometime so I can be proven wrong (kidding) ❤️

I agree with you, anyone who wants to be circumcised should decide for himself, the only exception is the medical topic.

I’m circumcised due to being born in Australia in the 80’s when it seemed to be the done thing. 
I personally don’t think it should be done unless medically necessary, how could I have consented to augmentation of my penis as a baby? I wish I had a foreskin.

I seem to be in the minority with an uncircumcised cock, I have a couple of questions:

How many out there are cut / uncut?

If you are uncut, do you pull the foreskin back when you piss?

What do the ladies think of an uncut cock?

I am uncut and i always pull foreskin back as i like to watch my pee. Also i like to aim at things so its harder when foreskin isn't back

As was said above, I'm pretty sure this depends on where you're from. Circumcision is common here in the US, and my fiancé is cut, but I have a few online guy friends from the UK and they're all uncut.

I've never been with/seen in real life a guy who was uncut, although I've seen pics from one or two of my UK friends. Personally, I don't think it matters, cut or uncut. I certainly like cut just fine, but uncut would be okay too.

2022 .. 8 years later, I'm sure you've seen a few more uncut guys in person and pics. But in case you're still interested, a few of us guys live in the USA, and would love to show you pics of our sexy uncut buddies.

My example had nothing to do with hymens. I was referring to female genital mutilation. While western media usually portrays it as an African practice, it's a problem that persists in the first world also. An intact woman is one who has not had parts of her genitalia forcibly removed or otherwise mutilated. In some cases it involves full or partial excision of the visible clitoral glans.  

As the Somalian men think it keeps females pure. So they inflict it on very young females. 😞

Male circumcision used to be the general rule of practice, not the exception. Parents were told it would be easier to keep clean that way. My then-husbands (I had sons with both) were in favor of it simply because they themselves had been cut. Now I think insurance plans see it as elective/cosmetic surgery.

Yes, the practice of fgm varies from region to region in Africa. In some places if you neglect cutting your daughter the village will do it for you. Often the in laws, even the neighbors. 

It should be noted that every country that cuts girls also cuts boys. However, the practice is usually less invasive/damaging.

Yes, in the US, Canada and Australia. Parents were told it would be easier to keep clean after they were told it would prevent masturbation. After they were told it cured/prevented all maner of afflictions. Today the justification is reducing the spread of aids. It's a cure in a never ending quest for a disease. 

Insurance plans still cover it because the healthcare industry in the United States is crooked as a barrel of snakes. And doctors still make a shit ton of money off of it every year. It's a lucrative side hustle. Medicaid now refuses to pay for non therapeutic circumcision in certain states (mostly those with large Hispanic  populations) because it's technically a cosmetic surgery.

Back to the original topic... like most Australian boys born in the 20th century, I am circumcised.  That was the toughest operation I I have gone through  - it was 8 or 9 months after it before I could walk again...

Drop the "again" at the end.
