It took me a while to understand that circumcision was, in fact, a crime. Circumcision is a commonly accepted practice, but it is important to look at its definition. Circumcision is the practice of removing a body part of a human being. Usually, it is done at birth, and it makes the definition of this practice even worst because in this case, this is a removal of a male body part without the consent of the infant or the child. Furthermore, it is a surgery that is done without a real medical explanation.
If someone would abduct a child and remove one of his body parts, this would be considered a crime. Since circumcision is widely accepted as the norm, no one says anything about it. Still, that’s the removal of a body part without consent.
My mother wanted me to be circumcised in the name of medical belief. It happened at 11 years old. The surgery was a bad experience. Now, it has been done, and I think it is useless to talk about it with my mother. Psychologists would advise to do it, but when a part of your body has been removed, there is no possible recovery. That’s why circumcision is worse than rape.
Circumcision has been widespread by a lobby the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) which report so-called benefits. Still, I don’t understand why it should be done on babies.
The AAP has been very clever from a communication point of view to encourage circumcision without being exposed to legal proceedings from unsatisfied circumcised men. They mentioned on their website: “After a comprehensive review of the scientific evidence, the American Academy of Pediatrics found the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks, but the benefits are not great enough to recommend universal newborn circumcision. The AAP policy statement published Monday, August 27, says the final decision should still be left to parents to make in the context of their religious, ethical and cultural beliefs.”
For sure, if you browse the internet and if you look for real case studies showing that circumcision was a good thing, you will find nothing. I have found a webpage from the US library of medicine highlighting the possible benefits of circumcision: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3684945/
However, I am still doubtful about it because i acquired genital herpes once. So, it means circumcision didn’t protect me. i always had sex with a condom and shaved. Still, i acquired genital herpes. That was the only STI that i had until now. I think i have stayed away from any problems thanks to my hygiene and condom rather than anything else.
my advice for fathers
Don’t let your sons getting circumcised. Circumcision has no real benefits. Nature makes no mistake. If the foreskin is still here, it means it still has a value for the human body.
