It seems like every time I read an article that has a discussion about circumcision, there are one or two intact men who chime in about how dirty and stinky their foreskins are, how they got it done later in life and were so upset at their parents, and as a result their sons were all RIC. What's the deal? It seems to me that it is a personal choice issue, and if they got their personal wish, then why would they think they needed to take the choice away from their sons? You'd think they of all people would appreciate the function of foreskin. I also don't get the stinky part. Nobody ever had to tell me, as a girl, how to clean myself. I just knew I had to keep things tidy. Why on earth would a grown man not just clean himself, and opt for surgery instead? If he wants the surgery, fine, but then why inflict it on his sons?
