Love it and I'm saving it to show people who have boys (or who give me crap about not circ-ing mine if I have a boy in the future)!

AND linked to it on my Facebook!

Hmm, just looked around a little. I have some reservations about the religious section (since it is CAC, we cannot discuss those particulars).
Was kinda shocked to see there were a few 'yes, you should consider circumcising.'

Good for the standard American 'cultural' assumptions.

I question their statistic on circumcised infants in the US, putting the rate at 90%. Surely this is no longer accurate?
post #8 of 23
I think it means that 90% of the 2% of worldwide babies that are circumcised are in the USA. But since it is a little confusing, maybe suggest to them an edit.
I think it would make sense to state in this section that the rates are almost 50/50 in the US now, and circumcision is declining.

Here's the section:

An American anomoly, worldwide, only 2% of infants are circumcised and 90% of them in the United States

Yeah...I think they mean 90% of the 2% worldwide..it is confusing and should be edited.

Thank you for that. I am really against circumcision. I would never mutilate my son. Nature made him that way. That way he'll stay!

Well the site creator is really open to suggestions, so just send them along.

I like the "Yes you should consider it" for the adult circumcision (i.e. I'm curious what it's like says consider it, as it IS a body mod that some people do like) and the R word ones. The reason I say this is because the site is actually much closer to non-biased that way.

I do agree that religiously a person SHOULD consider it and come to their own decision whichever one it may be. For the site to say otherwise would take away the objectively that does exist.

wow, it strikes me that they are so concerned with 1 child a year dying from a chicken pox, so they go out of their way to push the totally unnecessary vaccine on everyone, yet 100 boys die every year as a result of circ and no one lifts an eyebrow. and they say women are the ones with lack of logic…grrrr

Thanks for sharing.

I believe the chicken pox part was not on this site but part of the vaccination campaign. Yulia R was probably trying to point out that way more children (boys in this case) die each year as a result of circumcision than of contracting the chickenpox.

i think i'm even more confused now , if that were even possible . was the vax campaign put together by or somehow related to those who put up this site?

thanks for helping me get this all straight!

Sorry - I was refering to the chickenpox vaccination ad with the "tearful rubber ducky" for "Sadly, in the U. S. one child dies each year as the result of chicken pox." (not quoted literally but from memory) This was the ad of the vaccine manufacturer Merck.
