No idea. There's no reason the act of circumcision can't have meaningful legal regulation.

I had no idea I was circumcised until I started dating my current girlfriend. I started learning up on safe sex, and it mentioned doing something with the foreskin if you had it. I didn't know what that was, so I looked it up. That day I learned what circumcision actually is.
I seriously thought that circumcision was chopping off what I now know to be the mons pubis (I think that's what it's called). This was reinforced by the scene in Robin Hood Men In Tights with Mel Brooks as the Rabbi and his little circumcision guillotine. Oops.

After a comprehensive review of the scientific evidence, the American Academy of Pediatrics found the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks, but the benefits are not great enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision. The AAP policy statement published Monday, August 27, 2012 says the final decision should still be left to parents to make in the context of their religious, ethical and cultural beliefs. -

I just had this conversation in PPD where the person is very negative against circumcision. He said most men don't talk about it, and said that if a man tells me that he's happy he was 'done', then ask him if he'd be happy if he had a lobotomy.
From my perspective, I think it's barbaric to do to babies and is unnecessary (except for medical reasons).
But I'm not a guy and I believe circumcision is a subject that must be tackled by men. My partner is happy that he had circumcision done as a baby.
-Are you circumcised or not?
Are you happy if you were or not?
Are you happy that you were not done, or not?
What is your general view on circumcision?
[Serious] Bilinguals of reddit, what was the weirdest conversation that you overheard when the people didn't think you'd understand?

Pencil-dicks - I need to remember that for future discussions about circumcision.

Why is FGM (Female circumcision) causing such an uproar, while male circumcision is practically the norm?

Most clitoridectomy is not severe though, is it? There is at least a large degree of blurring between clitoridectomy and prepucectomy in FGM types I and II (with the addition of labiaplasty). Minor clitoridectomy isn't that different from a slightly botched circumcision.
I oppose genital cutting for both sexes, but here's what people who support cutting say about it.
- "Circumcision is OK" say women and men 4 min.
- Dr. Bilal Philips: FGM Forbidden, Female Circumcision Allowed 3 min.
And here's what some dedicated opponents of FGM have said about similarities between male and female genital cutting.

Okay and? Do I need to come up with a list of 10 feminists who think all men should die? Do I need to come up with a list of muslims who think female circumcision is good?
Of course that article is from the sewage facility known as Salon.
The politicians are not the same people as the public.

Quantum Entanglement Device? Is that how they have been doing circumcision these days? Well, logic checks out (about the bear), therefore must be smart. If they are smart, they are advanced in math, thus can use quantum mechanics now!
