    Given the bounty of scientific knowledge that human society has amounted over the past few centuries, as well as the acknowledgment that an individual should have the right to their own bodily autonomy, it therefore makes no sense to perpetuate the practice of circumcision in adolescents. There are NO proven benefits other than so called “aesthetics” or mere subjective opinion which, by its very nature, should not have enough weight to warrant what some would term “genital mutilation.” There are, however, proven detriments, such as subsequent infection of the wound, which while rare, can ultimately result in death, and there is a risk of the operation going wrong, resulting in leaving the genitals disfigured. There are also indications of psychological trauma, though the specifics seem to vary between individual cases.

    One of the major reasons why circumcision of adolescents is continued is the argument of “religious freedom.” This, on its very face, is absurd. While it is true that allowing someone to practice their religion freely is important, I would argue this also applies to CHILDREN. Say for instance the parent is very religious and their religion calls for the child to be circumcised. Years pass and the child, now grown up, either converts to a different religion, or gives up religion entirely. However due to their overzealous parents, they are now physically, permanently changed as a result of the religion that they themselves do not follow.

    Now if the child ends up deciding to actually follow the religion requiring circumcision, then when they are old enough to have legal consent, they can opt to have the procedure performed. This does not violate the religious practices of either the child or the parent, and it protects potential non-consenting children from having an unnecessary procedure done.

    While there have been attempts to ban the practice in the past, they have had limited success. The simplest way then to curtail its prevalence would be for the parents themselves to refrain from having their child circumcised, and to convince other parents to follow suit. Eventually, as public opinion changes, hopefully one day there will be enough pressure on politicians so as to formally and universally ban the practice.

    If people agree or disagree, they are of course more than free to voice their opinions.

I had someone once explain to me that they had to go get their son circumsized many years ago, as a reason for a Drs appt, i asked them why and they claimed it was because foreskin is un-hygenic and gets frequently infected and sore, and the such, I asked them if they had it and they said thankfully no that their parents had them circumsized as well, so then i asked them how they knew it was un-hygenic, the response was their parents told them so.  I then explained that i still had mine, and as long as you shower at least once a fricken week their reasoning was absolute bullshit, and that they should instead ask the doctor for the real truth.

Dunno what they ended up doing, but i said my peace, and i would never do that to a kid.

Perhaps an apt analogy here would be the following: Let’s say there’s someone who always has dirty fingernails. In fact, it’s such a prevalent problem that they even get fungal infections. Everyone tells them to clean their hands better, but this individual can’t be bothered. One day they have enough and they tear off their own fingernails, and having solved the problem, do the same to their children.

This is not a reasonable thing to do, and it’s quite easy to see why. If the problem could have been solved by simply practicing better hygiene, then any further action would be unnecessary at best, and outright harmful at worst. Does removing your fingernails have any benefits? Why actually yes, there are a few. But the question isn’t “Is there a benefit?” but rather is the action worth the benefits? Perhaps some people may need the following to be convinced: Tearing off one’s fingernails is excruciatingly painful. Fingernails are made of keratin and are not alive save for the root. So how is cutting off a bit of a child's genitalia in any way a good idea?
