    No because the pros outweigh the cons

    Ok fair enough.
    Is there any benefit of being uncumcised?
    precisely, Pros outweigh the cons same with infant circumcision.

    No, they don't.

    You haven't answered my question: Why is it completely different if I suggest mutilating your face for my own aesthetic pleasure is comparable to mutilating somebody's genitals for my own aesthetic pleasure, in both instances without consent?
    Answer the question or GTFO.

    No it shouldn't, aesthetically it looks better and its mandatory for Jews to have it and has health benefits.
    "Aesthetically it looks better"?

    What if I said vaginas without inner labia look better so we should remove them at birth?

    FGM violates stops a woman enjoying sex and has many health problems whereas circumcision doesnt.
    I appreciate that, I was replying to the comment that it would be difficult to ban infant male circumcision as it would be against Judaism. There are equally strong beliefs surrounding FGM, just because it has a lot of short and long term effects on a woman's health doesn't affect how those who practice it feel about it.

    No that's not right - it's an obligation for all Muslim parents to get their sons circumcised at an early age
    The child may not want to be a muslim when he is older, why should you force your religion on him?

    So Jewish and Muslim parents are sick.
    If they cut up their children's genitals, then yes. Nice attempt at trying to make this about religion -- shows how shoddy your arguments are.

    QUOTE=jamiep151;60171387]So lets also let people cut off a baby girls genitals, she wont remember and and maybe the parents have personal reasons. Cutting babies up because the parents want to is sick.
    [/QUOTE]

    Any parent that mutilates their child for any reason is sick, we don't allow parents to cut anything else off children the only reason this is still around is because it is seen as culturally ok. However in the same way as child brides and many other outdated practices people need to realize it is not ok.

    Lol I'm sick and disgusting? I assume you hold the same feeling about piercing little girls ears too. I look forward to having more children 😊
    Such a shame what could have been a constructive topic is full of immature children.
    You are indeed sick and disgusting if you cannot see the difference between having you ears pierced and having a part of your genitals removed.

    It doesn't have health benefits.

    Dicks are not renowned for being pretty. There's a reason girls cringe at **** picks in a way that men do not cringe at boob pics but do cringe at vulva pics.
    It's because guys send them unexpectedly lol. And I'm sure there are plenty of vulva pics that could make a guy cringe

    Apart from increased sensitivity, it means keeping the protective skin at the head of penis. There is also no procedure involved in remaining uncircumcised, thus no risk of complications (which can be disastrous). Finally, it doesn't involved mutilating a child.

    Religious reasons
    That's a terrible reason.

    NO ITS NOT! its common sense to allow the child to decide himself! its his body not yours, you are morally wrong to deny him the right to decide what happens to his body

    Religion is the negation of common sense.

    That's what I said. Vulva pics are pretty cringe. Because vulvas tend to be quite ugly. Most of the time. Just like penises. You don't admire either for their beauty.

    Male bottoms, chests, shoulders, arms, jawlines and female boobs, abs, legs, feet, hands, hair. They're different. They're all very admirable parts of the body for purely aesthetic reasons.

    Increased pleasure during sex, lack of an ugly scar, reduced risk of potential future resentment between the child and its parents when he realises the gravity of what's been done to him et cetera et cetera.

    In any case, that's a fairly stupid way to approach an argument -- if you had to get rid of anything that isn't of any perceived benefit to your parents (which is somewhat subjective anyway), you'd be getting rid of a lot of things that I suspect you wouldn't want to get rid of.
