    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
    I understand your view but it's the parents duty to do so plus the baby's tiny and has no decision to make

    No that's not right - it's an obligation for all Muslim parents to get their sons circumcised at an early age

    Religion is the negation of common sense.
    If that's what you think fair enough

    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.
    I think they're pretty beautiful tbh.

    Unless for a legitimate medical reason, then yes I believe it should be banned.

    Must be parents decision plus if they're not practising then if affects their decision but as far as religion goes it's a burden on the parents if their boys aren't circumcised

    For non religious people obviously they don't share that Islamic belief so I would assume it's up to them if they chose that option or not however circumcision is becoming uncommon and frowned upon

    What if you let them choose?
    I wouldnt mind but usually they can start making their own decisions when they are 16 onwards

    How can you compare fgm with circumcision. How many men who have been circumcised at birth do you see emotionally scared versus the other way around? One is "mutilation" whereas the other is a medical procedure that is done due to religious reasoning, but also health reasons. FGM has no benefits and is done to limit a female's sexual pleasure etc. They are not comparable beyond the fact that the both "remove" a part of the genitalia.

    Circumcision is also done to prevent boys from masturbating.

    definition of Mutilation:


    to injure, disfigure, or make imperfect by removing or irreparably damaging parts:

    So yes it is mutilation as it is removing a healthy and vital part of the human body

    This thread is genuinely depressing, people arguing for mutilating a baby because their skydaddy told them to. Every time I become more mellow on my views towards religion, the religious give me a reason to despise them even more. It's like you lot want normal people to hate you.

    woah pipe down I ain't forcing my religion on anyone for a start if the parents are practising Muslims then it's their obligation to circumcise their offspring that's common sense really

    I don't understand why those against the proposition keep using words like 'obligation' and 'mandatory' -- it isn't. There is no law of nature that says that parents following a certain religion must engage in genital mutilation of children that compels them to do so. There is a law of nature that says that everything that has mass is attracted to everything else that has mass by a force that is proportional to the square of the distance between them -- that's a law that can't be circumvented, unlike this nonsense religious law, which is as flexible as we want it to be.

    If it's between their religion and their offspring's well-being, any parent that opts for the former doesn't deserve to be a parent in the first place. This is the same sort of rubbish as claiming Abraham to be righteous man for being willing to sacrifice his son's life to prove his devotion to God (which is what one of the Muslim Eids celebrates).

    To claim 'common sense' doesn't mean anything other than 'here's a viewpoint, I have no arguments for it, so let's just accept it on the basis that it sounds obvious if you devote no thought to it.'

    You sound confused - if they are not religious then it's entirely up to them if they decide to circumcise or not but obviously if they follow a belief then it's expected they follow it
