Le Scaramouche BS: Circumcision: pros and cons (470* d) RE: BS: Circumcision: pros and cons 14 Oct 05

No, what has been shown is that the benefits aren't enough to justify terming it theraputic. Not that there aren't any. For all I know that's only one opinion. Find me a medical issue where opinions aren't divided or as plentiful as there are doctors.
To return to my original point, it is quite fatuous to compare male and female circumcision, simply because snipping a piece of skin off is distasteful to you. It downplays one (which I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies) and to overstate another.
The difference between what I was saying and the examples given in your post above is that they are done unto others. Circumcision occurs to YOU, if it's that awful, you won't do it to your son. I suspect there's more than a little cultural arrogance in your opinnions.
