I totally agree with you.
It doesn't affect the penis.
Me neither Liz. I don’t see the point to it. Unless there’s a medical need for it.
Removing the ear lobe wouldn't affect hearing ability either, still don't want it snipped off. Also the glans loses sensibility, so the penis absolutely is affected.
The penis is just as long and functional.
Okay, so by your logic it would be completely okay to remove childrens ear lobes? Or tattoo them?
@Twalli I chose circumcision, but at puberty found circ is really circumutilation. I found it affects everything throughout life in big and small ways. First it changes a penis into circumcised, so no longer a penis since penis has foreskin. Circ cuts off +16 functions including the primary penile sensors and primary immune system and leaves the head unprotected (ex, Foreskin is coverage against sunburn & Fire, that provides 24/7 snug comfort of feeling nude not naked). I restored my foreskin/fauxskin, after tough reading the hard facts online at ‘NORM Lost List’ which details list of what is cut off, its function and affect, plus can it be restored. Online “Sex as Nature Intended” clearly shows the sexual affects of circ. Basically have you considered the 50% skin loss, is equal to what remains, so is equal to erotic sensibilities experienced? That in simple terms having foreskin at least doubles what circ feels.
Of course the courts say no to tattooing infants. Which begs the question, is it okay to tattoo the infant’s foreskin before cutting it off? Or cutting it off later?
@KOTFrank once you get older enough circumcision is not necessary, but as a young child a circumcision reduces the risk of infection by not proper drainage.
@Twalli some of those infections are caused by reacting the foreskin to early. You should never force reacting the foreskin.

I agree with that
I know some can be treated without circumcision.
I know but some can't. So if you made it illegal, you couldn't help those people. Like you I don't like the idea of doing it to unconsenting children though.
I don’t think to looks better at all. It’s not more hygienic at all.
Me personally I wouldn’t never do that.
Someone has said to me before. The dildos have the the foreskin.
Find one and post it. I've never seen one
Someone told me.
I am in the middle for abortion. I don’t agree with abortion nor I do agree with it.
@CoolTeen same here.
That makes both of us.
I personally glad it hasn’t been done to me.
I personally glad it was otherwise it would hurt every time I had sex
You know that tight foreskin can be treated without circumcision.
I've tried that, you really think I wanted surgery where knives would be cutting near my penis, this was a last option.
Oh, ok then that makes sense. I’m sorry that happened to you.
It’s not healthier
I think it makes infections less likely.
Women get infections too. And we treat them with antibiotics.
Not with FGM.
it's just something I think is better, however I don't enforce my beliefs on others
I think it’s wrong forcing circumcision on a person who can’t consent. But that’s just me.
it has some benefits, and it's better done at young age
Those benefits can be treated without circumcision.
it's not just about hygiene, it's less likely to catch all kind of infections
Those infections can be treated without circumcision.
Just like women’s infections. We treat them with antibiotics.
Not genital cutting.
what about STD you treat them with antibiotics too? circumcision decrease the risk of STD
why are you trying to enforce your opinion on others? everyone have different opinions on that matter just like any other matter, I support it, you don't, what's the big deal?
I think it’s wrong to do to babies who can’t consent. The person who circumcising them are forcing it on them.
