    In England we call the circumsised and non circumsised the Roundheads and The Cavaliers.

    Re: Circumsision

    A background piece with a bar-chart of where in the world does it most:
    In the US, the popularity of circumcision dates back 140 years to Dr Lewis Sayre, one of the founders of the American Medical Association, says David Gollaher author of Circumcision: A History of the World's Most Controversial Surgery.

    Sayre believed that many medical conditions had their root in a dysfunction in the genital area, and that circumcision could be used to treat a startling array of problems, from depression to mental health issues, syphilis and epilepsy.

    Circumcision was also promoted as a way of discouraging masturbation, and was regarded as clean and hygienic. It was particularly popular among the higher classes, and was seen as a sign of being well-off enough to afford a birth at hospital rather than at home.

    Barbaric nonsense, if you ask me. How can it not be considered genital mutilation. Genitals are mutilated.

    Re: Circumcision

    And here we go - another news article, this from the BBC.
    A 61-year-old man, believed to be the doctor who carried out the procedure, has been arrested on suspicion of grievous bodily harm with intent.

    The boy's mother complained to police, saying her son was circumcised without her consent while staying with his paternal grandparents in July 2013.

    A 44-year-old man and a woman, aged 47, have also been arrested.

    Nottinghamshire Police said they were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit grievous bodily harm.

    [...] Police reopened the investigation after the mother got help from the anti-circumcision group Men Do Complain and leading human rights lawyer Saimo Chahal QC, who wrote to the force.

    Not before time, either. I look forward to the first prosecution where both parents consented.

    I think parental consent is as irrelevant in circumcision as it is in Female Genital Mutilation, both are equally grotesque and abominable outdated cultural practices and both are equally indefensible on any reasonable grounds.

    Europeans used to castrate promising soloist boy singers. That practice was banned. For some reason male genital mutilation that leaves the testes attached is still considered acceptable by some. It should not be, for exactly the same reason that we no longer listen to castrati during church services.

    Circumcision is a barbaric ritual, but then, that's a large portion of the human species for you - contradictory and violent.
    Even Doctors say that male circumcision is beneficial.

    Well, fifty, sixty years or so back, they did. Of course in the 60s you could see doctors on TV telling us that smoking cigarettes could be beneficial, too.

    Re: Circumcision

    The story isn't about circumcision, but

    The boy's mother complained to police, saying her son was circumcised without her consent while staying with his paternal grandparents in July 2013.
    Looks to me like a family squabble.
