Circumcision without informed consent is surgical rape at any age. I wish my genitals had not been mutilated as an infant, I sometimes wonder how my genitals would have functioned or looked like had they been allowed to develope naturally and intact.

This is just another way of American doctors trying to justify this cruel and unnecessary surgery. It lasts lifetime. Mutilating a babyâ??s body is no way to stop the spread of HIV. Iâ??m circumcised and HIV+, didnâ??t help me except to deprive me one of the most important parts of my body. It is illegal in many European countries but of course not in this country w/ its outdated mentality toward sexuality.

African RCT data must come from hysterical scientific absurd insanity in prejudiced researchers' minds and the fact that painful circumcision-healing time-periods will definitely curtail the AIDS-HIV transmission rates for several days-weeks- maybe months.

I was circumcised pre-puberty - Advice on lubricating /exercising the foreskin would be recommended today. It is an invasion of a body-people rant about Female Circumcision-enough hypocrisy. Get this-We would have less disease if we cut off penises and sewed up vaginas. Of course there will be fewer infections with male circumcision in Africa. Less water, facilities to clean,result in more vaginal contagions in Africa.The foreskin is there for a purpose. To sensitive and protect.

Think of circumcision as being analogous to cutting off your baby boy's eyelids. The eyelids only gets in the way when your trying to see and there's all that mucus you have to wash off in the morning.

Genital mutilation doesn't make you immune to HIV or any STI. Wear a condom. Stop promoting genital mutilation.

Circumcision is like a religion in the US, whenever this trend goes down someone will come up with new reasons to advocate this immoral procedure. There is some research that suggests a link between circumcision and autism and adhd. The human baby is born whole and perfect and not only doesn't need surgery, it should be protected from having it as a basic human right, people are finally waking up in America.
