Please hear me out instead of dismissing this post as a "whiny MRA post"

To be more specific male circumcision done on baby boys and young boys for non-medical reasons?

I am personally against it for these reasons:

-The foreskin is a part of the body and everyone should have the right to an intact body

-Babies cannot give consent

-The foreskin is full of nerves. Removal means less pleasure from sex/masturbation. The glans of the penis eventually becomes desensitized after rubbing against clothing instead of being kept lubricated by the foreskin.

-Last Nov a baby boy in Manchester bled to death after being circumcised (for medical reasons)

If it is to be done, I believe it is best for the boy to make the decision for himself when he becomes old enough

You have to admire his persistence if nothing else.

Actually maybe not so much admire...

Just acknowledge, perhaps?

He has so much dedication to the cause. grin

I'm amazed to see the same poster supporting page 3 on another thread.

Who'd have thunk it?

He's on AIBU again now. He's getting a bit SHOUTY and quoting a thread that's 5 years old as evidence that we're all man-hating harpies.

Bless.

Ah. So he was just looking for a fight.

He just wasn't happy until he'd engineered an argument, was he?

Why on earth do they do it? I don't understand.

He's convinced that sooner or later the Power of his Mighty Penis will mean he wins an argument. Despite the fact that he always ends up getting laughed at and pwned.

HecateWhoopass Mon 18-Feb-13 11:01:03

Oh, so his penis is doing the talking?

My mistake.

I thought it was his arse.
