Good God - assault on a helpless infant's genitals is awful in itself, but here it also gets dressed up as a ceremony? Good to see that a cut-free brit shalom alternative is gaining traction.

Good lord! it's a tradition that goes back thousands of years and there is literally nothing wrong with it. If you can find me a single man who remembers it being done to him (as it is done in the first 8 days of life), I will give you every penny I own. Conversely women in Africa in particular are having FGM done to them as teens because their "overlords" don't want them to feel stimulation through sex...completely different and is assault.

Ah, the old excuse of “it’s an ancient tradition that doesn’t hurt anyone.” It doesn’t matter if it’s a tradition that’s been practiced for thousands of years or one that started last Tuesday, how long something has been practiced has no impact on its value to society. How about we respect individuals’ bodily autonomy and let them decide if they want to be circumcised once they can make informed decisions? We have anesthesia now, so this “we have to do it in the first few seconds of their life” argument is completely off. You’re right that it’s not as bad as FGM, but I don’t see what that has to do with anything. Parents verbally abusing their children isn’t as bad as them physically abusing their children, but that doesn’t mean that we have to tolerate either one.

Adult males are undergoing voluntary circumcision in Africa now because it reduces the risk of contracting HIV through intercourse.

Also makes your wee-wee less gross-looking but I must admit I'm not a fan of them in any condition, so...

The pachyderm question is tricky, really. As I understand it, the term pachydermata referred to rhinos and hippos as well as elephants. Also, kudos to cpgatbyu, you wear that badge!!

After typing in the M cities I got it stuck in my head that answers must begin with M.
Just to inform everyone, Motel California was not a big hit for the Eagles.


Also, pachyderms can also refer to hippos and rhinos, as already pointed out.
