[Dean] Cochrun, who is imprisoned in Sioux Falls on a kidnapping conviction, filed the federal lawsuit Friday...

So, he's just a jailhouse lawyer filing nuisance lawsuits.

to deny it affects sexuality is simply ridiculously counter factual.. but to say it ruined it is equally ridiculous.

the practice was restarted in the english speaking world in the late 1800s under the theory of "virtue medicine" - sinning made you ill - they considered masturbation one of the worst sins and Dr Kellog (as in corn flakes) recommended circumcision for boys and application of acid to the clitoris of girls to reduce masturbation in both genders.

the practice died back out quickly in most of the rest of the english speaking world but persisted in the united states - it reached it's peak in 1983 actually - but lately is swiftly dying out (lucky for young men done now). it persisted in the united states because of poorly executed junk science that cultural factors made people slow to challenge.

so yes it is definitely an infringement upon our rights, yes it definitely affects sexual pleasure, yes it definitely affects size some, but this guy is still a farking idiot. suing for monetary damages is a waste of time, it is doubly a waste of time when you sue for such a stupidly little amount.

you are also not helping.. but shiatting on people who want some of what was stolen from them back you are continuing the cultural factors that made people slow the challenge the practice in the first place. i'm not saying this makes you a bad person, i'm saying this so you become aware of it.

whether a man gets circumcised or not should be his personal informed choice when he is an adult.. not before and not his parent's decision.

From a different article...

"I was recently made aware of the fact that I had been (circumcised) and that ... I was robbed of sensitivity during sexual intercourse as well as the sense of security and well-being I am entitled to in my person," he argued in the lawsuit, adding that neither he nor his partners would "have that sensitivity during sexual intercourse and have a normal sex life."

You learn all sorts of things as a prison biatch, I guess

yea,,, that is the problem with infant circumcision. it was done a lot in the 70s for "sanitary reasons" I didn't realize until I was circumcised until i was in my early 20s.

Tho if anyone i would have sued my parents for giving consent for someone to mutilate my genitals

All I can say as that as a circumcised male, I can't even imagine giving less of a crap about anything. I regret many things I said, many things I have done, bad attitudes or ungratefulness at times. But a teeny bit of foreskin that was trimmed right after I was born? There are probably 10,000 things on my list of concerns before I would even begin to think about it.
 
2012-04-17 02:08:58 AM
i'm cut and i never received complaints. it's not like i lost a finger at 12 and know what i'm missing. circumcision as an infant is one of the less painful parts of a roman catholic upbringing.

He should be grateful. He's less likely to get a venereal disease by being circumcised, and also less likely to have women laugh or shriek away in horror and disgust at the sight of the skin house his wee wee.

Thanks. :-) Slight correction though. Bathia Mapes (a good/white witch) was in three episodes of Dark Shadows before Angelique (a beautiful, but evil witch) turned her into a crispy critter.

On the other hand, you'd be surprised at the number of people who think my name is from "Dune" (Shadout Mapes).
 
2012-04-17 02:24:23 AM
Ive actually had doctors have to ask if I had been circumcized cause it was done... um... less than stellarly*, so its possible that this kid might not have known.

* unless my penis has regenerative powers, it does have many OTHER special abilities, in which case I apologize to the circumcising physician.

I've never heard that before, but I have heard many women say they prefer cut to uncut. This is usually based on how it looks and how it feels to the touch. I've heard a lot of women say that uncut feels and looks weird like it's diseased or something. I've heard other women say it just simply freaks them out and they wouldn't want to be with a guy who's uncut because it's "icky." I suppose it could be based on what they're used to, but that seems to be the consensus with every woman I've actually spoken to about this (which admittedly doesn't represent any sort of majority of course).

The uncircumcised kawk is more dirty, and more likely to transmit disease. That's why it's done.

Do you live in America?
Are you of a generation where these women would have almost exclusively come across males with circumcised penises?
Are different things scary?

There's your answer.

Little.Alex: The uncircumcised kawk is more dirty, and more likely to transmit disease. That's why it's done.


The science I saw was that it's more likely to allow disease to be transmitted TO the person, not in transmitting it FROM the person.

Specifically, studies show HIV is far more transmissible to uncircumcised men, even when all other factors are accounted for. And they didn't come to that conclusion easily. The studies go back quite a few years, and there was considerable reluctance to even recommend it in developing nations because of the concern that circumcision would be done in unsanitary conditions. I'm saying there doesn't seem to have been a pro-circumcision bias, rather, the other way around.

The "just found out" bit may not be pure idiocy. He may be trying to assert that the statute of limitations hasn't run out -- the clock doesn't start until you discover whatever it is has happened that you're suing over. If this guy admits that he's known he was circumcised since he was a kid (which is likely), then even if his claim is legitimate it's too late.

The medical malpractice SoL in South Dakota is 2 years, so he has to claim he "just found out" for the suit to be even facially valid.

Since I know that circumcision threads always go nuts - I'll go ahead and post the link to the Center for Disease Control circumcision fact sheet.

The last time I posted this link, some incredibly stupid farker told me he had "busted" the CDC and WHO science. I assume he did it with a taste test.

Link (new window)

Also, most of the data related to HIV transmission was gathered from examining African penises - so I assume it was a large study.

I think you're mistaken. Post a link.

The CDC says that the tender skin under the foreskin allows more soft tissue to harbour virus and bacteria.

I'm glad my circumcision was done to me! It came with the added hidden benefits of infection that spread to the main nerve bundles - sweet. It is absolutely wonderful that it prevents me from ever achieving sexual pleasure the way nature intended. I love not being able to feel what a vag or mouth is supposed to feel like. Women love when guys can't feel them, wonder if it is in, and can't get stimulated enough to ejaculate by them, just ask all my ex's! Now I'll never worry about those pesky STD's as I never have the opportunity to catch them. It also greatly helps with the pain and scarring each time you get it caught in a zipper because you couldn't feel it - how freaking awesome I'm the king of the world@!@!! And let me tell you about my balls and how full they are and how much each and every day I want release I just want to fark everything that moves. I love not being able to concentrate on anything a woman says and thinking of how much I want to bone them. It makes for an exciting work environment!

It's wonderful, you should try it!


Maybe I should cut out my eyes so I don't see anything horrible in my lifetime, it's not ever worth risking your life over a "What had been seen cannot be unseen" moment sp just take them out with an ice cream scoop Maddox style.



Thanks Mom for doing what god told you to do! kunt rot in hell
 
2012-04-17 03:35:28 AM
Having been with men of both foreskinial persuasions (what?) I can honestly say that personal grooming and hygiene have much more impact on the "icky" factor than the presence of a bit of skin.

While I wholly disagree with Dr. Kellog theory and his appalling excuse for "science" in supporting his belief, there IS scientifically valid evidence that it currently is a major risk-reduction factor for contracting HIV, and also some evidence that it's a risk-reduction for other STDs. In regards to HIV, it basically halves the risk of contracting it. HALF.

These studies were done in Africa. Yes, it would be more ideal to have a study done in the US, there's a lot of potential reasons those results may not correlate to reality of the western world. Then again, when do you EVER get a science that knows for sure what it's saying? It's not a perfect world, there is no perfect science, and there will and always should be some degree of doubt. But nonetheless, the evidence does currently exist.

Hey, did you guys know that entire cultures of women are LEGITIMATELY MUTILATED in the form of having their entire external genitalia cut off? Might make you think twice about biatching about a half-centimeter of skin....

Just providing some context, not that I advocate the genital mutilation of millions of men over the years. I, as a woman, prefer uncircumcised *HYGIENIC* men. They're much more... responsive? (Probably due to the extra 30% [roughly] of genital sensitivity).

In both contexts, it's wrong. It's much more brutal for women, though. Look that shiat up.
