Okay here's another Wolfpoint. I've been wanting to do another one for a while now and it's finally here. Now due to the hot war that came about when I posted my last one, I thought I do one which was a little less political. So I'm tackle the issue of circumcision. This especially a big deal because with me and Tanya expecting pups on the way I'd thought I'd bring this up. Now here's my opinion.
Circumcision on infants is barbaric! I mean, I'm circumcised myself as are a great many Americans here and for a while, I thought it was no big deal, that is until I saw one for myself (I witnessed my one of my best friend's son get circumcised). For one thing, it causes an immeasurable number of pain to the child, even with anesthetics. Also, despite what everyone tells you, circumcision has little to no medical benefits at all. For one thing, there's not a whole lot of evidence that circumcision reduces urinary tract infections or that men with uncircumcised dicks are prone to them. Also here's something my own doctor told me and Tanya. All you have to due to prevent urinary tract infections with an uncircumcised penis is easy! All you have to do, is just wash the foreskin will a little soap and water every time you bath or shower. Why this is such a hard task for us, is beyond my belief. And even if they do get one, often, the infection isn't very severe and can be treated properly with antibiotics. Easy and doesn't require mutilation. Now let's look at the second argument, the circumcision reduces the risk of catching STDs. Now there is partial truth to this, but what I'm against is the idea that this can be reduced by circumcision when there is a much more healthier alternative. It's simply, we need to start practicing safer sex. If you wanna have sex with a stranger without mutilating yourself or catching an STD all you need to do is use protection like condoms! That's all you need to do is wear a condom! They work just as well at preventing STDs and not only that, they also help reduce the risk of unwanted pregnancy! You get two benefits for the price of one. The answer is more condoms, not circumcision.
Now after hearing me rant you might think that I'm pro anti-circumcision but actually, I'm not! I'm against its use on infants. Here's my solution to the circumcision issue I think it is personally the best option out there that works for everyone's benefit. I think, it should be illegal to perform circumcision on an infant baby, however, when the child reaches adulthood and decides to circumcise himself for whatever reason be it religious or cosmetic, then that's perfectly fine with me because it's his choice. But the infant doesn't have that. And that's why I'm personally against the circumcising infants. If you wanna learn more bullshit on circumcisions, here's a video by, you guessed it, Penn and Teller.
Feel free to comment keep it mature though and it would be nice to give me some ideas for my next Wolfpoint.
