    Agree. I fail to see why it is fundamentally any different to FGM.

    At least we don't have the obscene situation that prevails in the US, where male circumcision is perpetuated by the medical profession as an easy, billion dollar business, with new customers arriving every day!

    Possibly not, but I get the feeling that attitudes towards religious privilege are changing, with the whole Islam business acting as a catalyst.
    IT IS DIFFERENT

    male circumcision is no where same as FGM.

    It baffles me why religious people sometimes cannot grasp the simplest logic. If Allah hates foreskins so much then he would simply have created man without them.

    Also, for a god who claims to hate anything homosexual, he certainly seems to spend a lot of time thinking about not only how penises should look, but where they should be inserted...

    Now that society is more accepting hopefully Allah feels confident enough to come out of the closet :sadnod:

    Maybe Allah forgot to remove the foreskin so is asking us, humans, to do it... Does that mean we're greater than Allah? :ahee:

    Obviously you can't circumsize a 4 year old, they'll remember that **** for the rest of their lives. But to a relatively newborn child, I honestly don't see why so many people here are crying over it. I'm quite glad I am and I can't think of any way it's hindered me in life :erm:

    Glad to see the courts exercising some common sense and thinking of the welfare of children rather than religious privilege.
    This should always be the case, even if both parents agree.

    This is only in a case where one parent disagrees. But there are many cases where both parents agree and support circumcision. There is also the issue that even if it were made illegal, there is the chance of a black market opening for illegal circumcisions or parents sending kids abroad to get circumcised. So ultimately, I don't think the courts will be able to have much effect on the issue as a whole. I think more emphasis needs to be put on challenging the tradition.

    That's your problem. You also failed to understand that the decision of the court was made only because of the objection of the mother.
    (Original post by QE2)
    But it is tradition.
    Muslims and jews traditionally circumcise their male children, because their gods demand it.
    So you don't know the difference between religion and traditions? Very sad. :cool:

    Fundamentally, it is no different.
    They both involve the needless removal of part of a child's genitals without their consent.

    Neither can be justified in any way whatsoever.

    /me gives a ****.

    As long as they don't prevent me from having whatever sons I eventually have from being done; foreskin problems have run in my family for at least six generations.

    If people want to be circumcised, they can wait 'til they are 16 and consent to the operation. There is absolutely no need to do it, especially not to a baby who has no say in the matter.
