Okay this should be called AGAINST circ debate. EVERYONE is against it.


I am curious to know who is for it and their reasons.


I will have my son circumcised if I happen to have one. So if you are against it, stay away..I have read enough of your opinions. I want to hear from the ones that are for it

"I will have my son circumcised if I happen to have one."



I wonder if you have really researched and though through your decision?

Did you know that researchers believe male circumcision is a contributing factor in female arousal syndrome, a condition that makes sexual intercourse painful or impossible for post menopausal women?

"We don`t do it because others do it or don`t do it. It`s the respectable thing to do in MY culture ..."

Isn't "doing the respectable thing in MY culture" just another way of saying "because everyone else is doing it"?

The reason the posters for circumcision do not stay is that their reasons for supporting it cannot stand up against the medical and biological reasons against it.

Bottom line, it's a cosmetic surgery performed on unconsenting infants.

It's the ONLY cosmetic surgery ALLOWED to be performed on normal, healthy infants for the sole reason of "the parents want it".

Hi blackpearl - congratulations on your pregnancy!


One think you said is intriguing to me:


Like I said, We don`t do it because others do it or don`t do it. It`s the respectable thing to do in MY culture

What I know Franck is that it is best for my child to be healthy and free of diseases. What I know is that it is in my best interest to provide my child with everything that will not have him ostracized. so what i know, is that my son will not be INTACT like you call it. ( i just even find it unclean!)

Hey, Black Pearl, don't run yet. Some pro-circ posters are bound to join in and support your views. And remember, this IS a debate board, so you'll get posters with fierce opinions here.

By the way, why you think an intact penis is unclean? Do you feel the same way about a vagina?
