I wasn't saying it was a source of fact, it was a compilation of different ideas that are untrue.

By claiming they are untrue, it is presenting its claims as facts. Conflicting data doesn't outright discredit other findings, especially if the other findings are more numerous.

The foreskin does actually produce a small amount of moisture, like I said it's like the inside of a vagina. It's like holding your tongue outside your mouth for a minute or two, gets pretty dry doesn't it?

I didn't mean to make you sound like some sort of cripple, but it's essentially turning an internal organ into an external organ. The tissue inside your mouth (and other openings) is far more sensitive than your skin tissue.

Also the studies supporting the reduction to STI's are outdated. I assume you're an American, thus the reason for your circumcision was said to be for "health reasons" but is actually 100% tradition. More recent studies have proven that there is no significant health reason to get circumcised.

Here's a compilation of all the things you were probably told: www.psychologytoday.com/blog/moral-landscapes/201109/more-circumcision-myths-you-may-believe-hygiene-and-stds

Your article is interesting, and provides good counterpoints, but it is written by a blogger, with some assistance from a Ph.D in psychology, not medicine.

Your article claims many of the 'myths', were only supported by one or a few studies done a long time ago, but in my research I saw many more than the one or two studies supporting circumcision. The AAP supports it as recently as 2012:

And when does personal responsibility as parents factor into your STI preteen argument?

You'd have to circumcise 100 boys to save 1 from STI infection, is that worth permanent body changing surgery?

I'm not saying make it illegal, just don't do it to babies. There is no reason to do it, the supposed health benefits have other less extreme options. UTI isn't a life threatening thing and is generally easily treatable, STI are prevented by safe sex practice. Kids are having sex younger, but circumcision isn't helping that, if anything its encouraging unsafe sexual behavior.

"You'd have to circumcise 100 boys to save 1 from STI infection, is that worth permanent body changing surgery?"

I'd like to chime in here and say that that's the exact same premise for vaccinations. From the health agency's point of view, the point of giving you a vaccination isn't so YOU are safe. It's so you don't infect 10 more people when you contract it. Limiting a disease's ability to spread is key to combating it. In fact, an international health organization (I forgot which one, but I believe it was the WHO) led a campaign to circumsize individuals in third world countries with HIV epidemics to limit its spread. If the WHO, one of the world's premier international health organizations, advocated this approach, I'd say it's worth the procedure.

it's not, lets circumcise 100 babies to save one, it's; As a parent would I want to reduce risk factors for my child.

i can't agree with the assertion that circumcision somehow encourages unsafe sex.

All I can really say is to repeat what I said before: circumcision doesn't need to be universally mandated, but the benefits outweigh the risks, and it shouldn't be vilified.

Can't UTI be treated with anti-biotics?
Seems a little extreme to go right to invasive permanent surgery for such a little problem.

As far as the STD thing, who is the baby going to be having sex with?

You have no argument for circumcisions on children being justifiable.

Adults? Yeah sure, do whatever you want with your dick.
User avatar #233 - rapterjesus (06/17/2014) [-]
I have an argument, you just don't agree with it.

Just because an infection can be treated, doesn't mean it is always noticed right away. Babies are difficult to read, and when the infection is internal, and shows little symptoms aside from pain, Parents might not be privy to what is happening.

As far as STIs go, there have been outbreaks and even local epidemics of STIs among PRETEENs within the US. Preteens are not Adults either.

The end point is circumcision doesn't need to be universally mandated, but the benefits outweigh the risks, and it shouldn't be vilified.
