PENIS BACTERIA ECOSYSTEM

So when my doctor told me to switch to boxers, it was because of global warming?

Does deforestation also have a major effect on the Penis Ecosystem?

This is what we commonly refer to as junk science.

Nice try Israel, but we shall not mutilate our collective penis for you.

/Israel convinced men in Africa to mutilate their penis. Raised the HIV/AIDs rate immensely. Immune to AIDs Israel said.

My pleasure! Sad to see that science can be so corrupted by special interest groups and find its way into the mainstream virtually unchecked.

I didn't know that the epidemiologists and penis mutilators were ill.
I should have sent them a card.

Why do I never see arguments for the health advantages of female circumcision? (by this I don't mean chopping off the clitoral head but instead removal of the hood and lips).

I don't advocate this but it probably makes as much "sense" as male circumcision.

Yes, go find the Daily Shows report on the suffering of pubic lice.  It's hilarious.

Having circumcised penis increases the chances of women giving you oral pleasures.

It is known.

HIV always has been and always will be a disease that almost exclusively infects gays.  There is absolutely no reason to mutilate every boy's genitals to "protect" against this disease.  Currently, that is what we are doing and is yet another example of how the whole country suffers because of homosexual promiscuity.
 
2013-04-16 03:20:00 PM  
To be at risk of getting HIV you actually need to have sex, so, personally, i don't see the problem either way.

Is this the thread where uncircumcised people pretend their dicks don't look like anteaters? And where circumcised people who happen to have small cocks blame it on circumcision?

These threads are great.

Glad my folks decided to leave me as nature intended. It may sometimes look like an aardvark, but since my tip has a hood on most of the time, it is extra-sensitive(in a good way) when I get sprung.

So yeah, fark circumcision.

1) 30 year old guys crying about losing 1/8" of skin when they were a day old need to see what real suffering is
2) Non-essential surgery probably should be avoided, but also see #1
3) Put a damn condom on, make some decent decisions about who you stick your dick in, and don't screw around on people that trust you.
D) Do we need this conversation again?

I'm in Canada, we don't get the good stuff up here. I have to scrape it off myself. Getting it into those small triangular foil packets is tricky.

Hetfield: When bad science kills, or how to spread AIDS


He makes some good points overall, but point number 2 is SO incredibly stupid that I'm finding it hard to take anything else he says seriously...      sadly I don't have time to read through the source material.

He's also apparently unaware that clinical trials, for drugs at least, can and are cut off early if the drug in question has proven to be statistically effective (ie, it's bested the placebo so well that it's obvious well before the planned end date of the study). It's generally considered immoral to continue a clinical trial longer than necessary since doing so means you're denying the placebo group potentially life-saving treatment...

An unethical surgery altering your body without consent is okay as long as other people are suffering more? Is that really your argument? Is rape okay as long as it's performed while the victim is unconscious and can't remember it?

I knew about the lower risk of STD thing, but I had always assumed it was because... you know... stuff just sort of gets trapped in there and hangs around longer, and... I don't really want to talk about this anymore :/

To be fair, we could apply that standard to anything. "Oh my god! Have you seen what's happening in Syria? You Americans are so selfish for complaining about some stupid bank repossessing some guy's house because he missed one payment. You need to see what real suffering is."

If the costs outweigh the benefits, then there's no reason to do it, and it's fair for people to spend a proportionate amount of time advocating for such. It's not like there's a freaking million foreskin march planned for DC next month.

There's always room for discussion. I'm just glad to see people start speaking out against this dangerous "If I get circumcised I'll never get HIV" mindset that seems to be the unfortunate result of the circers' agenda.
 
2013-04-16 03:52:45 PM  
Worrying about male circumcision should be example 1A in the encyclopedia under "First World/White People Problems".

To be honest I'm just "talking" to one of my friends here in a virtual manner that he'll never see. He has a daily fit about his poor, poor penis. I avoid him these days, it is just too much.
