Actually being uncircumcised can be pretty dangerous later in life, dependent upon the individual. The foreskin can tear. Like rip. Like flesh on your dick ripping. Like ripping downward. Like tearing. Flesh. Dick. Tearing. Ripping. And the chances of penile infections are much larger than 1/16k. Minor bacterial infections can happen on the regs, yeast infections, etc. And also there is a higher risk for uncircumcised individuals to catch STDs, have UTIs, etc.
Circumcision is not just based on some backasswards archaic principle like people try to say it is.
As an owner of a foreskin, I have to say that it’s really unlikely that you’ll tear it. “Oh this might get damaged later, better cut it off.” What’s your source on there being a higher risk of infections? And even assuming that’s true, it’s just plain fucked up to cut off a piece of child’s genitals. They can’t consent. THEY’RE BABIES. Adults can get circumcised if they want, but this needs to stop being done to infants. Girls in the western world are protected against genital mutilation, why not boys?
Look it up on the CDC’s website.
And females are protected against genital mutilation because 1. What is referred to as “female genital mutilation” usually also includes the removal of the clitoris, and 2. The labia actually helps protect against infections and such. It serves a highly - functional medical purpose.
And the foreskin doesn’t? Jesus Christ, you’re really missing the point. Cutting off parts of a baby’s genitals, no matter what supposed benefits you think it might have, is fucked. Nothing you can possibly say would make me think it’s okay. It’s a violation of bodily autonomy and it’s cruel and inhumane.
Lmfao no, NO it doesn’t! Statistics, science, logic, rhyme, reason, bub. You can say whatever you want, it doesn’t change medical science bro lol! The foreskin INCREASES the risk of infections. Look it up mate, all it takes is a Google search. Circumcision is a medical procedure performed to decrease the risk of infections. Female genital mutilation also usually includes the removal of the clitoris and is done to prevent the individual from feeling sexual pleasure. You can’t compare the two, lol.
You can disagree with circumcision all you want, that’s your stance and that’s fine. But you can’t compare it to female genital mutilation and you also can’t just deny medical science.
Foreskin PROTECTS FROM INFECTION. the leading cause of infection in intact penises is premature forced retraction…
Educate yourself on foreskin functions for fucks sake.
