I cannot believe I still have to say this: NOT YOUR PENIS, NOT YOUR CHOICE!  
Can you say American Hypocrisy? Yes, I knew you could.

"Equal protection under the 14th amendment.... unless you're a boy.

UTIs are easily treated via the use of antibiotics.... Unless you're a boy.

Genital mutilation is torture, disgusting and a cause for the World Health Organization to rise against it....unless you're a boy.

No doctor in her right mind would ever perform a surgery without adequate anesthesia or without it .... unless you're a boy.

Genitals are easy to clean.... unless you're a boy.

Circumcision aims to control you, rape you, deny you of sexual pleasure and is undeniably and unequivocally sexist to do it on a child based on gender... unless you're a boy.

If a baby shrills, thrashes, turns red, it is obviously a sign of great pain.... unless you're a boy.

Doctors live up to the Hippocratic Oath- to identify the problem, treat the problem if not self-limiting, perform the surgery if the problem cannot be treated, perform an amputation after all else has failed.... unless you're a boy...."

Not true at all. If you bothered to look many men have written about circumcision. I'll post some examples shortly. And none of what she siad is bullshit. Everything Annette says above clearly demonstrates the hypocrisy and sexism in North America regarding circumcision. That you disagree with her in no way invalidates her points. Boys AND girls AND inter-sexed children all have the exact same human rights and that includes genital integrity.

Some writings and videos bay men about circumcision:

From the above-a question asked of Erik Rhodes, a porn star (he has sex for a living!):

"Anonymous asked
Hi Erik have you lost sensitivity since you got circumcised ? I read that you regret it, why is that ?

...

First off, Everyone was complaining saying it looked deformed and well… it was. The first doctor that did it, really f***ed it up… he, after months of leading me along saying that i had extra swelling… finally admitted he messed it up saying he would correct it and that “he was sorry”… Really, your sorry? Who wants to hear i’m sorry from the doctor who’s performing surgery on your penis? I swear, in my eyes, its as bad as a surgeon saying sorry that he f***ed up your face…

anyways, after losing sleep about this a**hole doing surgery on my dick again, i said to myself there is no way in hell that i could let the same guy who did this to me… try it again… i mean what if he messed up worse? So after doing 3 movies with my jacked up dick… i finally had a better surgeon do the correction. Which included having to cut my nut sack open and resetting where it hung… what fun.

So to answer the question, after getting all that out… yes i do regret it. I should have just looked for other options before letting some crazy a**hole take a knife to my dick and yes i have lost sensitivity. Its just not the same. Granted… it looks so much better now… as in after the second time around. Uncut cock is hot and i wish it was still intact."

A Question for Circumcised Men by Latumway. Latumway discusses how easy the foreskin is too look after, since circumcised men and women in circumcising countries thing that the foreskin is difficult to look after.

You do realise that the US is the ONLY country that still routinely circumcises boys on a wide scale? This is one case where the USA is clearly backwards compared to most other countries. Canada, the UK, and Australia/New Zealand used to circumcise and have largely stopped doing so. The majority of Europe (Finland, Germany, Norway, Romania, Russia, Denmark, the Netherlands are some examples) and most of Asia (Japan, China, India, Pakistan for example) at all countries where the majority of boys are left intact and remain so throughout their lives.

I should point out that several celebrities have also spoken out against circumcision, including Colin Ferrel (that's his foreskin in my icon, by the way), Russell Crowe, Gerard Butler, Howard Stern and Craig Ferguson.

Yes, you've made sure I know it's Colin Ferrel's foreskin several times now :P

I often pull his name out when I get the "Ewww! I'd never have sex with a man with a foreskin!" comment from ignorant women. Giving them a list of intact celebrities tends to make them think.
