tirob: Assuming for a moment that your claim that parents have their infant boys circumcised solely for "cosmetic" reasons is true, when was the last time you saw someone trying to organize a demonstration against cosmetic surgery for teenage girls?



I wasn't speaking of protests, I was speaking of the hypocrisy of those on Fark who go to one thread and condemn cosmetic surgery for 14 year old girls, then go to the next thread and hand out hero tags to those who perform cosmetic surgery on their newborn boys.


tirob: If you don't want your boy circumcised, don't have him circumcised.



And if I don't want to be circumcised because sex and masturbation feel like rubbing sandpaper on my penis... Should I just jump in my time machine and kidnap myself? Use a dildo and imagine what sex is supposed to feel like? Get a sex change operation and hope for the best?

/Tried everything, including the suggestions of multiple doctors
//Now I've just accepted my 'forever alone' status until someone comes up with a foreskin transplant, which likely won't be available until I'm too old to have sex anyway

misanthropologist: gingerjet: I was sort of alright with the article until we got to this part:

"I would like Oprah to come to her senses and realize that all children have a fundamental human right to keep all their genitalia and to decide for themselves if anything gets cut off," Callender said Wednesday.

Parents make all sorts of decisions for their children that have a wider impact on their lives than whether to circumcise or not.

/really don't understand some guys obsessiveness over other peoples foreskin
//haters in 3...2...

Partly it's about gender symmetry - if female genital cutting is horrific and needs to be stopped, then male genital cutting is also horrific and needs to be stopped. It's fascinating that the anti male-circumcision folks really focus on a child's inherent right to bodily integrity and to consent, as an individual, to modification, whereas the anti female-genital cutting crowd tend to focus not on agency but on the necessity of bodily integrity. Double standards... fun times. Some great anthropological writing on this stuff too.

Not sure I'd have my baby boy circumcised, if I had a baby boy. I might let him decide to do it at 14, like a Maasai.


As a formerly 14 year old boy, I can tell you that no 14 year old from now until the end of time is going to be voluntarily circumcised. There is just no way any teen is going to decide to let anyone cut any piece of his dick off for any reason. Ever.

These anti-circ people spend way too much time obsessing over their dicks. And our dicks. Its pretty much a sign of an unhealthy mind. If it sucked that bad, we would have stopped doing it about 3500 years ago, trust me. It's really a minor cosmetic difference and women like it cut, so its gonna be around for a while.

Flakeloaf: willfullyobscure: Flakeloaf: Qwertyette: circumcision is bad and you should feel bad.
/cut.

The plural of anecdote is not data.

dude, she's getting the ENTIRE THING CHOPPED OFF. That's not anecdote OR data. That's the loneliest part of the bell curve, out where the buffalo roam and the wild things howl at the moon.

If the she has a penis then getting it chopped off sounds like a pretty danged good idea to me even if she was born with it. Because doncha know, my opinion totally matters. I do hope the pain from a botched operation isn't the only deciding factor here though or we could be in for some sad.


Actually, they kinda turn it inside out, not chop it off. The more material, the better. Sadly, I have very little material (if I owned a sports car, it would need to be 30 feet long and have 2,000 HP).

Foreskin is actually shown to have more nerve endings in it then the glans, so yes, you're losing something. It also aids in elasticity and when there is a lack of lubrication. There is a reason humans evolved with it, and not without it. That is, unless you believe the earth is only 6,000 years old. Even if you did, didn't God make us out of his own Image? so why fark it up?

In summary, go eat a hotdog wrapped in bacon.

Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: MaudlinMutantMollusk: C-FAP?

Actually, just FAP....(fap, fap...) Apparently they aren't international yet. Although, Italy's will be fun when it's started. (I-FAP)


s1.postimage.org

No, it's CAN-FAP, as the fellow above is pointing out.
As in "You CAN FAP without tissues and lotion if you haven't been snipped"

You really have to admit it..whoever came up with that name was absolutely BRILLIAN!!!
