Benedict Cumberbatch is one funny looking guy with one funny looking/sounding name.

Also, I can't believe this:

Benedict Cumberbatch said: "The costumes look great. Some of them were very cumbersome and heavy, but some were very snug.

OMG, BBQ, WTF!

They say most of George R.R. Martin's next Ice of Fire book will spend about 800 pages on House Cumberbatch in the distant moors somewhere off the Riverlands, full of wonderful characters and places no one ever thought to care about before!

Nah, the women's bits are sometimes called the 'clunge', fanny, box, minge...etc (feel free to add your favourites...)

The Lunchbox is also known as the 'Packet' or 'Package', and many others names...

No, it's quite amusing in a rather childish way, I suppose, and as has been pointed out, it's such a very British name. Which reminds me, I had a good laugh the other day when listening to a podcast interview with Brent Spiner, where he related how he and Patrick Stewart met Benedict in a restaurant, and one of the female members of the audience squealed in glee at the mention of him. They referred to it as "cumberbatching" and used it several times during the rest of the podcast. I'm not sure how, but I intend to use it myself in conversation one of these days...

Circumsision doesn't prevent it either, it merely lowers your risk factor. By a pretty sizable percentage points, but double-digit reductions in extremely small percentages results in fairly small reductions. As in, it isn't enough for it to be much of a factor overall.

That and neither of those reasons is why it is so prevalent in the US, where it has been that way for decades and those are both fairly recent findings.

It's a British word. Like "lorry", "crisps", or "dole".

It's kind of interesting... in Great Britain, what we call a "lunchbox" (carrier designed to carry children's lunches to school) is known as a "scrotum".

"Sebastian, Siobhan! The lorry's here to take you to Tallywacker Academy. I've packed your kippers in your scrotum, don't forget it!"

Of course you are. For the uncircumcised, the idea of an unclad bellend bouncing around in your trousers is painful to the point of horror. Like a more unpleasant version of scrubbing the inside of your mouth with cotton tissues in perpetuity..

That indeed suggests that the nature of the skin is fundamentally changed.

It's like arguing that babies should have their fingernails removed to reduce the chance of them harbouring bacteria under tham.

I think the point he was trying to make is that we shouldn't be modifying people's bodies without their consent, and that claiming that circumcision "should" (presumably to infants who are utterly unable to give consent) is bone-chillingly scary.

It's arguably far less of a thing to remove the breasts, as they only have a purpose during breastfeeding, which in itself is optional. A foreskin has a job every hour of the day, just like an eyelid does.

I think the point he was trying to make is that we shouldn't be modifying people's bodies without their consent, and that claiming that circumcision "should" (presumably to infants who are utterly unable to give consent) is bone-chillingly scary.


I never said parents had to do it. I said should.
Has anyone here been circumcised as an adult? I'm curious about pain bruising etc

I'm not sure there's many in the West who's over the age of 14 would have ever really encountered smegma.

It's a far more minor cleaning job than, say, a vagina. And no-one's agruing girls should have their vaginas cut out.

Yep, what he said. If you weigh the ethical consideration versus the health benefits the facts weigh pretty heavily against circumcision. The American Academy of Pediatrics stopped recommending it in 1999. Yes, it does dramatically lower the risk of penile cancer, but that is a rare cancer in the first place, and secondly it is usually caused by HPV and if/when boys are routinely vaccinated against HPV it should lower the benefits to insignificant levels. As for HIV it lowers the risk by about 15% (in the US). So you would need to circumcise about 400 boys to prevent one additional case of HIV. There are literally dozens of ways to achieve the same reduction in rates without using surgery.

I'm honestly surprised you haven't heard of him before now. Amongst other things, he's the star of the British TV series Sherlock.

Which rocks.

It's arguably far less of a thing to remove the breasts, as they only have a purpose during breastfeeding, which in itself is optional. A foreskin has a job every hour of the day, just like an eyelid does.


Also, the death rate from all forms of penile cancer (even the type circumcision wouldn't prevent) is about 200 per year. The death rate for women by breast cancer is about 40,000 per year. Yet nobody is seriously debating routine breast removal. Hell, routine removal of breast tissue in men would save about the same number -- 200 men die of breast cancer per year. Lets do that instead.

The only reason we still circumcise is because of cultural inertia. I think it is an anachronism that will eventually be discarded.

I was 12, is that old enough to offer a valid opinion for you?

It's grievous bodily harm. I'd like to be able to say "I don't know why this illegal activity is accepted." but unfortunately I do know why. The longer we allow religion to determine medical policy the worse off we'll be as a society.

Any benefit of the surgery can be overshadowed by education and hygiene. Get people to stop having sex while suffering from an STI, don't mutilate their genitals to reduce the danger of the idiotic practice.

Yes, well, the easiest way to prevent abortion is the pill, yet for some reason the pill is suddenly a Very Bad Thing. You'd think the anti-abortion folks would do the math and see that the pill (and other bc) greatly reduces unwanted pregnancies, but no, we now have abstinence-only education.

When we were expecting our son, we decided against it, as we couldn't come up with any compelling reason to do so. My family was not happy, and kept referencing outdated and debunked medical evidence. We still didn't, and haven't regretted that decision at all, which I know wouldn't have been the case otherwise. Even the doctor called us "progressive" when we told him no to the circumcision. It's like formula feeding- there's still a lot of misunderstanding and misinformation out there, and people often feel pressured because everyone else does it.

Why does everyone always think this is an american thing? There are plenty of countries that have rates of circumcisions as high, or higher, than america. Most middle eastern counties average about 95%. It's also very popular in Australia, South America, Korea, Africa, Canada as well as many smaller countries. Basically it's not popular in Europe, how that translates into it being an American only thing is beyond me.

I said the West (ie Europe, the US, Canada, Japan, Australia etc, which represents 99% of Fark users)......by "very popular" in Australia, you mean a current rate of 12%, half of which is religious and the majority of the rest because of medical conditions.... which makes it only a tiny fraction more likely than in Europe. Same with Japan. Same with New Zealand.

In the West, it *is* an American thing. Even Canada, your closest cultural ally, it's 14% at current rates, the bulk of which are again either religious or medical.

Non-religious, non-medical circumcisions are very rare in the West, apart from the US. The sole exception is South Korea, which only happened post-1945, from close to 0%.

Many people of the older generations still don't believe in breastfeeding, although the younger generations are breastfeeding more and more. But back in my grandma's day, formula was better for the baby, you got a saddle block for the pain of childbirth, and boys were always circumcised- because the DOCTORS said so (at the time..you know, like how cigarettes were good for you). It's taken decades, but people have come back around to "hey, maybe breastfeeding is a good thing", and it looks like circumcision is going the same way. When I asked my doctor's opinion about it, he recommended it solely on the basis of "most boys in our area are circumcised and you don't want him to look different." But statistics show that circumcision used to be nearly universal in the US, and now the rate is declining.

puckrock2000: Bashir


The rate in Sudan is low for Africa, plus a British mother, would weight the likelihood of him not being circumcised. Male Muslim circumcision is by no means the norm, but mainly locally cultural, which Sudan isn't particularly.

I'd say 65%/35% for him being uncircumcised.

That's not entirely true. Only a large minority of uncircumcised penises have full foreskin retraction (because it's not really meant to, if you think about it from an evolution standpoint. It's for self-lubed movement. Lube is not natural).

I'm sure that there are certain cultures in central Africa that think the same about a clitoris that hasn't been cut off. They're gross.

Yes, but not for men. Those with vaginas not able to properly self-lubricate are hold overs from our evolutionary past.

Think about poor cats, where the barbed penis rips out the vaginal lining to initiate ovulation.

For reals though, Sherlock is a fantastic show. More of a mini-series. 2 seasons, 3 hour and a half episodes. I highly recommend it.

Male circumcision for prevention of heterosexual acquisition of HIV in men

Are newborns routinely engaging in so much sex that they need to be worried about HIV?

If you choose to get circumcised once you reach the age of majority, go nuts! Just don't force it on utterly helpless infants who have no say in what's being done to them.

I was circumcised as an infant and it doesn't bother me one bit. It's not like I remember it, nor does anyone else who had it done as an infant.


I suspect that people born with any form of disability often feel the same way, because they have no point of comparison.</i>

That same logic applies to someone who's not circumcised, they have no point of comparison either. So I guess that leaves only those who've opted to have it done as an adult to judge.

Good for you. It's completely unneccessary. How anybody can do that to a newborn baby I will never understand :(

HotWingAgenda: That joke only makes sense outside the US, where circumcision is the norm no matter what religion you are, due to health practices.


It used to be widespread in hospitals here, but I wouldn't call it a norm - more like a symptom of our broken medical system: doctors getting away with performing unnecessary surgery on babies. It still happens, but not so much. In the last couple decades, a few things have changed - more of the doctors who do it have started taking their ethics seriously, parents became better informed that it was unnecessary, and most significantly, some insurance programs have stopped paying for it.

It was common, but even those of us who grew up back in the 80s eventually found out it wasn't exactly normal. Then again, if you google norm and circumcision, you'll get results - just not what you may not have been expecting.

I don't care if it's natural, I'm glad I was circumcized. Probably one of the best things that ever happened to me in a hospital. I'd be disgusted with myself otherwise.

All these poor, uncircumcised American babies will grow up into men who never get laid because American girls run screaming when they see the weird dork they pull out of their pants.

It's funny how all these people griping about male circumcision (Because it's "unnatural") aren't using their energy to call for the return of women with full, bushy pubes, legs and underarms.

I think many people crowing about their choice to leave their kid with foreskin are just looking for attention, trying to be "progressive", or looking for approval for their decision to make their child look like the odd man out at the circle-jerk. These are probably the same parents who named the kid "Logan", "Cody", "Donovan", "Connor", "Riley" or "Ashton".

American women also run away screaming if the guy doesn't have any money or treat them like the princess they really are.

Uncircumsized penises are disgusting. I don't care how you rationalize how disgusting they are. They are filthy and decent human beings vomit when they see one.

Deal.

Bob Down: HotWingAgenda: That joke only makes sense outside the US, where circumcision is the norm no matter what religion you are, due to health practices.

As it was in other countries until Washing Yourself was invented.


Welcome to the green list of people whose posts are worth looking out for.

Bungles:
It's a far more minor cleaning job than, say, a vagina. And no-one's agruing girls should have their vaginas cut out.


Actually, it is less cutting out the vagina and more spack filling it in which would be the best option.
/by best option I kind of mean the most comparable for making cleaning unnecessary
//or perhaps expanda foam?

ReapTheChaos: Bungles: his comment on that only makes sense to those non-Americans because circumcision is generally only practiced by the Jews in 95% of the West?

Why does everyone always think this is an american thing? There are plenty of countries that have rates of circumcisions as high, or higher, than america. Most middle eastern counties average about 95%. It's also very popular in Australia, South America, Korea, Africa, Canada as well as many smaller countries. Basically it's not popular in Europe, how that translates into it being an American only thing is beyond me.


Actually it is remarkably unpopular in Australia these days. During my own childhood probably more than 50% of boys gave the hospital the tip before leaving, these days though it is probably only about 15%. In the case of my son I chose not to have him done, but I did have his ears surgically removed when he was 6 because he kept forgetting to wash behind them. I wish I had that done when he was a baby, then I wouldn't have had to put up with him complaining and screaming "no dad no!"

Shazam999: WhippingBoy:

If you choose to get circumcised once you reach the age of majority, go nuts! Just don't force it on utterly helpless infants who have no say in what's being done to them.

Huh? It's the foreskin that gets removed, not the nuts.


Although, if you remove the nuts think how much you'd reduce your son's chances of catching an STD. Won't somebody please think of the public health!
