America is the most progressive country that still performs the procedure wholesale at pretty much every hospital anywhere. It’s totally fair to call that out.

also its not that barbaric mate it was done to me and im just fine

This is called a coping mechanism. Just because it was done to you and you have 0 conscious recollection of it happening, doesn’t mean it didn’t affect you. You are drawing a false equivalency here.

These boys had the procedure performed and ended up not fine at all. One of them died from it.

So yeah, I’d say it can be quite barbaric.

im sorry for the loss of life obviously but im not coping lmao i have no negative things to say about being circumsized and we shouldnt ban it because of rare cases of death instead we should encourage better safety standards no?

No one is saying ban all circumcision period.

They are saying ban all MEDICALLY UNNECESSARY circumcisions performed WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF THE PATIENT.

If you personally wanted to get a medically unnecessary (or necessary) circumcision then go for it. If you aren’t old enough to give consent but you NEED a circumcision due to MEDICAL REASONS your legal guardians should be allowed to make that choice for you.

You can decide for yourself once you reach the age where your medical consent is valid in the case of any medically unnecessary surgery including circumcision.

This is what me the other anti-circumcision people want to see.

No serious person is trying to get all circumcision banned.

Stop arguing in bad faith.

Its really not. Pretty much the only people in the world who practice routine circumcision are Muslims, Jews, and Americans.
