I agree with you on this, but can I ask you to expand on why you think this? Just interested to hear your reasoning.

It may be an unnecessary medical procedure. That doesn't make it torture. Unless you are going to say that all medical doctors, Jews, and parents want to deliberately cause pain to their children.

Well said, and female circumcision is. Even still, there is compelling evidence that male circumcision may reduce the transmission of sexually transmitted infections.

By torture I mean the needless infliction of extreme pain on one conscious entity for the purpose of bringing pleasure to another conscious entity.

One of the reasons that the religious invented circumcision was to inflict pain on children. Maimonides himself said, "The bodily pain caused to that member is the real purpose of circumcision." (http://www.jewsagainstcircumcision.org...).

I also always find it a bit hypocritical for someone to be against female circumcision, but for male circumcision. All of the arguments that can be used against female circumcision can be used exactly equally regarding male circumcision.

As the cynical say: it's a cultural thing.

What a reliable source for an accurate quotation of Maimonides regarding circumcision. Can you possibly find a more bias & less reliable source than "jewsagainstcircumcision.org". That's like relying on a creationist for facts about evolution, or a neo-atheists translation of the bible.

It is not necessarily torture, but done without consent on the premise that it is unnecessary. That in itself, may be psychological and physical torment that is unnecessarily caused.
