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...."

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.
