  • Mandatory in terms of morality not embedded in any laws. That would be absurd and unethical. I think it is a "requirement" in the Jewish faith to circumcise your baby boy, but I mean religion is a voluntary practice that does not have to completely (if at all) followed. If there WERE an actual law set in place that mandates parents circumcise their child, it would be bizarre but also very practical and efficient. Some states already require antibiotic eyedrops or ointment be given to newborns since they can be exposed/prone to getting eye infections from bacteria in the birth canal, at least according to WebMD. Might as well cut off the baby's foreskin to prevent germs and infections down there as well. Not to mention, circumcision reduces the chances of men getting HIV by 60%. Though it may "feel better" (no lubrication necessary) and provide more nerve stimulation, it has more long term effects towards that male's health. Plus, it freakin looks much better having that foreskin removed. I mean girls, according to Cosmopolitan, do not have a superior preference on cut or uncut penises. Personally, I find that to be false because uncircumcised penises look like ant eaters and are gross. If you join a sport's team, the guys will judge you for that. Even if the penis itself is quite large, it will be made fun of. I'm sure if so many guys find it gross that a lot of girls will too. No parent wants to have their child humiliated for having a weird looking penis.

  • Circumcision is harmful...

  • Genital Mutilation

  • Let parents make the decision for their own child. It's not like you're the one who's gonna be changing diapers and taking care of infections caused by leaving or removing the foreskin. Making it mandatory seems excessive, since that's government intervention on what we must do with our bodies and circumcision doesn't necessarily offer protection to a large host of individuals, in the way vaccination creates the herd effect.

Male or female, it is just wrong.

Circumcision is not genital mutilation. You're just taking some skin layers off the tip.

@Mharman Yes it is, you are cutting off the most sensitive parts of a persons genitals. Its mutilation
