LooseCannon said:I don't know. I think affirmative action in things like school opportunities is not necessarily a bad idea. Certain demographics are notably less educated than others, and only by forcibly injecting more education into those areas can you make things better. If education was better, and opportunities were equal, then we wouldn't need to worry as much about the need for affirmative action.
LooseCannon said:The problem is that people aren't making their own choices: they're choosing to alter the genitalia of another person (ie, their child). There's no medical benefits of circumcision, and there is a chance of harm being done. I'm not sure the government should be telling people to not do it, but we do tell people not to cut off the clitorises of their daughters, so maybe foreskin should be off limits too.

LooseCannon said:Circumcision of a minor is a freaking unnecessary surgery that can end up horrifically damaging the child. It's bad news bears.
Onhell said:ok ok, minus the selling, abusing and killing... they're property
Onhell said:I agree there is no solid argument for or against it whether medical or hygienic. The only argument is religious and so must be left to the family, not the state.
