It's Mutilation

Is the worse thing that can happen to a man.  I thank my parents for not letting that scissors chop a piece of me.  I read once that the doctors do this procedure without anesthesia that is barbaric.  They only care about how much money they can get from you.

It is mutilation, but all surgery is. The doctors do this procedure without anesthesia as a safety precaution. A local anesthetic would not last very long and would be fairly ineffective. A general anesthetic would work for the surgery, but with the baby being so small and the effects varying between individuals, use would result in a percentage of deaths due to use of anesthesia alone. The mitigating factor is that neuron paths have not formed in the boys brain, i.e. after the wound heals he will not remember the pain. It's still barbaric and unjustifiable!!!

I dont see why men should get circumsized. I dont think its any less attractive either. I got my son circumsized just for the fact that everyone else was doing it, but I wish I had done some research first.

Is it true that there is actually some cosmetic products made partly from foreskins? I once read that doctors will often sell these to these companies for profit. In any case, I agree with you that it is barbaric and likewise am also glad that my parents also left me intact.
