Yahoo! Answers and circ

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

On Yahoo! Answers when a question is asked about circumcision (of a minor) the pro-circ responses seem to get low ratings (often to the point they're hidden). Also, responses to questions like "How much does circumcision cost?" and "How long does it take a circumcision to heal?" often get anti-circ answers like:
(former question):
"Don't worry about what it will cost you; worry about what it will cost him."
"It could cost him a lot, much more than dollars and cents."
(latter question):
"A circumcision can never heal completely; the wound just scars over."

Maybe this is a sign that the attitude of the general population towards circ is changing for the better?

I'm honestly surprised as Yahoo Answers often have some terrible responses regardless of the topic. Those are good and clever replies.

 

I don't mean to rain on the parade but I don't think we are allowed to talk about discussions hosted on other websites. Just a heads up if this post gets removed.

I think there are just a lot of intactivists out there who regularly search yahoo answers for questions about circumcision so they can provide anti-circ answers to them.
