I'm personally offended that people don't crush the left testicle of their offspring with a rock, like all right-thinking human beings.

I'm not cut and that's never negatively affected my relationships.

I love people make the argument that scar-tissue-covered genitals are more visually appealing than natural ones. Scar tissue. Sexy.

Know what?  fark you guys.  I like my cock just as it is.  These circumcision farkers are just like these magazines that try to make women feel bad about their appearance, and induce teenage girls to starve themselves.  Bunch of farking animals, all of you.  Stay off of my cock.

ng2810: Ugh. The more reason for me NOT to date younger guys. I've been with both cut and uncut guys, and I can say with 100% certainty that I prefer cut guys. No matter how many showers a guy takes or how clean he keeps his stick, in a few hours the smell emitting from the folds of skin are enough to be off-putting. It's hard to give lots of head when you're trying not to gag from the smell.

/bf is very VERY happy....

I have to assume that smell is coming from YOU then.  You see, I'm a bit of a slut and I've had lots and lots of uncuts, and never once had one emit any kind of rank odor, even after hours of activity.  Oral or otherwise.  Perhaps an antibiotic would help, or if you get the smell during oral, a good dental check up.

CJHardin: megarian: This is coming from someone who puts ketchup on hot dogs, so I obviously have unresolved mental issues.

Is that a euphemism?

/I apply the forbidden condiment as well so call me crazy.
//Big whoop, wanna fight about it!

Now it is.

Welp, nice knowing you. The Fark Anti-Ketchup Brigade has our locations and we will soon have to be forced to accept our condimentectomy.

CJHardin: megarian: Theaetetus: CJHardin: I guess my point is that both procedures are in my opinion equally unnecessary and harmful and I disagree with their continuance in modern medicine.

Your opinion, however, does not mean the procedures actually are equally unnecessary. In particular, there are some medical benefits to male circumcision. You may (and probably do) disagree that those benefits outweigh the risks or potential detriment, but that's a private medical decision.
However, there are no medical benefits to female genital mutilation.

I like how this^ was worded, too.

I just have a firm opinion on the matter.  I wish that my foreskin was still intact and that I was given the choice.

My opinion does not mean anything, as it is only my opinion.  I do believe that the benefits of circumcision do not outweigh the risk, but that is for others to decide when it comes time to decide for their own child, and whose decision may negate their child's ability to choose for themselves when they are old enough.  I do agree that there is absolutely no medical benefit to female genital mutilation, so at least we agree on that.

Well, all of that is a pretty reasonable opinion.

Also, penises are weird in general. I don't understand how getting snipped makes them less weird, but to each their own.

This is coming from someone who puts ketchup on hot dogs, so I obviously have unresolved mental issues.

Raspil: it seems that this is one topic where men care what women think, about dicks.

You'd be wrong. Circumcised guys prefer to believe women run in terror from uncut guys, and nothing any woman can say will change that.

mesmer242: Those numbers fall under the "lies, damn lies, and statistics" end of things. They only count circumcisions done in hospitals - not those done in religious ceremonies or in doctor's offices. There's reason to believe there's been a decrease, but there's also reason to believe that more people are having circumcisions done outside of a hospital setting. So the real numbers are unknown.

It should be in your passport. Wait. You Americans don't have those either.

The My Little Pony Killer: Fo Shiz: Circumcision leads to lower rates of something called meatitis.

Except for the part where circumcision actually leads to higher rates of meatitis.

I was trying to make a joke.  Meatitis.

/A simple google search will show multiple scientific articles whose findings report that meatitis is found exclusively in uncircumcised men.
//It probably also find some pseudoscientic crap too
///I don't know what to think because Jenny McCarthy hasn't told me yet.
