why do you advocate it for babies and then say it (being uncircumcised) was never a problem for you? Very contradictory statements.

The average American is circumcised because most middle-aged and seniors are. Most children are no longer circumcised

why would you want to do that to a baby for gods sake... reasons for this being done apart from religion, just crazy and not all that long ago...

I never understood why american women find foreskin ugly and gross, but at the same time they fancy european and latin guys like nothing else. Its such a contradiction.

One question for american women. Do you feel kind of mad or sad your arent into uncircumcised? It limits your dating pool, you always have to worry if men is circumcised or not. If you love the swarthy type like italians it must be even more dissapointing, because over 90% of those are uncircumcised If they arent muslims. I would go mad If blonde women have something in their pants I find gross. Thank god im born as a man.

In my opinion thats the biggest reason to ban circumcision. You make the dating life easier for your daughters. Image you see Henry Cavill or Hugh Jackman but they are uncircumcised. Isnt this horrible to prefer circumcised men? You have to be jealous of women who doesnt care.

If you arent into muslims you are limited to mostly american white or black men.

Outside interference in this issue is the last thing we need.

I doubt that. Perhaps immigrant Hispanic populations given the cultural traditions of where they come from but non mainstream white America.

Biker are you afraid. Only around 32% of newborns are circumcised today. Internet the greatest invention ever, were people today can educate themselves and choose not to circumcise. More and more jewish choose not to. In the future it will be banned for sure.

Given the sheer volume of immigration into the US and the high birth rates of some of those groups maybe it is only 32% now, but I would venture a guess that for non-immigrant household newborn white males that a high majority are still being circumcised. In some regards it is perhaps a clash of cultures. I for one hope that any grandsons I have do get circumcised. Others are free to do it their way.

Again, why sre you so offended by a practice so often linked to religion and cultural preference that you seek to use the power of an already-too-powerful government to ban it outright??

I was born in 1949, by which time newborn circumcision in ubanized society was just about universal, yet I "missed the cut"; I endured some locker-room bullying, investigated having the procedure as a teenager, (declined because of the hospitalization, general anaesthesis, and sutures) but, thankfully,
decided against it when I entered college and learned I wasn't so unusual. I view it today as a subtle shaping force fr the individualism and love of autonomy that is centrsl to my personality -- one of the wisest decisions I ever made.
