I've been debating with some dame on 2X about why it's not ethically correct to believe FGM is a horrible atrocity while still thinking male circumcision is A-OK.

It's kind of a lost cause, like many other places on reddit these days, I don't know why I bother.

I basically agree with all that. There seem to be minor benefits to circumcision and minor drawbacks. Ultimately I'm back at zero. I'm not arguing for it, I still consider it unnecesary like I said.

The anti-circumcision crowd here are so outrageously hyperbolic and use terrible arguments that I just can't help myself.

It's ridiculous to compare the benefits of male circumcision to female circumcision when no Western researcher is looking for the benefits of FGM while many, many Western researchers are looking for the benefits for male circumcision. Despite not looking for it, they did find it: Women with FGM seem to be less likely to get HIV. That data was discovered by researchers who are very much against FGM.

>You are pro-circumcision.

More like "don't see what the fuss is about"-circumcision

> Yes, you are.

TIL that a hot blade is used in infant circumcision that has led to loss of penises and even reassigned gender!

As long as hospitals can still sell these foreskins for profit they will continue to push for circumcision. Almost all studies that show circumcision is beneficial have been proven to be flawed.The problem is from the hospitals standpoint they get to charge you for the procedure and then sell the foreskin due to the amount of stem cells it harbors. Just like anything else incorporated in America bottom line in profit nothing else matters.

What is the largest group of people you have been naked in front of? How did you find yourself in that situation?

I was 8 days old. Circumcision exposed me to over 200 people

My point is FGM is more serious than circumcision. Circumcision doesn't change much. FGM is like if the glans penis was cut off. Also I'm not getting my kids snipped so I'm not prolonging anything.

What is legal now; but you think should be illegal?

Circumcision - parents having their children's genitals mutilated and disfigured for the sake of 'tradition' and 'religious freedom' (while taking away the child's religious freedom to choose.)

A lot of women openly say circumsized penises look better, if I guy said that about a circumsized vagina (FGM) women would be up in arms.

well he's a comedian, so there's some truth to it. He's pretty clear he's pro circumcision
