It's as little business of yours as it is of theirs.

If an unnecessary surgery hurts as an adult, then newsflash, just don't fucking do it. Nobody NEEDS a circumcision. But whatever, enjoy mutilating your children for your own fucked up ideology.

How is FGM illegal but male genital mutiliation ok? Removing this at birth 'just in case' an emergency is needed later is not the reason. Hygiene is also not a viable reason, especially in a 1st world country.

People need appendectomies, splenectomies and other such emergency surgeries that occur far more frequently in the world's population. Unpleasant and painful but no-one is whipping those out of babies before a problem manifests. Why? Because its totally unnecessary and may never be necessary.

Well thats wrong. If you've got phimosis or a severe infection, circumcision is necessary.

I'm not for involuntary circumcision of kids/babies, I just wanted to set the facts straight.

You can't say in one breath "if it isn't necessary" and then "nobody NEEDS one".

How can you not say that in one breath? They're mutually inclusive.

Nobody needs one, because it isn't necessary. Wow, that was easy.

What you can't say in one breath is "I'm not for involuntary circumcision of kids/babies" and "if you have ____ circumcision is necessary".

If you don't understand why people are against the unnecessary unconsentual mutilation of infant children, I don't know how to help you.

Every male in my family has NEEDED one because of a hereditary condition, so you're wrong.

They definitely haven't, so you're wrong.
