There are two medical reasons (one really, but read on) to get cut, albeit, you won't know until the boys are much older.
Marie Antoinette's husband Louis (14?) had a problem where his foresckin never separated from his penis. He could not perform sexually and had to have the problem resolved with a medical circumsision when he was like 25.
The other reason is if the man had persisten, major yeast infections and can't keep himself clean (probably the reason it started in the desert 5,000 years ago). This can be avoided with proper hygene (retract, wash with soap and make sure you retract when drying) and a diet that reduces yeast, so this is not really a reason.
Keep in mind that the 1st reason is VERY rare and that the complications from circumsision are MANY!!!
If you never heard his story David Reimer, who's penis was burned off in a horrible circ tool accident was raised as a girl until he found out the truth. Unfortunately he commited suicide 5/12/2004 at 38 after a lifetime of tourture.http://www.electricvenom.com/index.php?p=6276
|The baby was strapped spread-eagle to a plastic board on a counter top, his body covered with a surgical drape with a hole in it to expose his little penis. The baby struggled against restraints that bound his arms and legs, pulling one arm and then the other. When the doctor pinched the foreskin with two forceps, the baby let out a piercing scream, which intensified when the doctor inserted an instrument between the foreskin and glans (head of the penis), tearing the two structures apart. (They are normally attached to each other during infancy and childhood to protect the glans.)
The baby started shaking his head back and forth -- the only part of his body free to move -- as the doctor used another clamp to crush and then cut the foreskin lengthwise. This allowed insertion of the circumcision device, meant to protect the glans, as the foreskin is clamped and crushed against it and then amputated. The baby gasped and choked, no longer able to scream.
As I watched in horror and disbelief, I began to cry. The doctor looked at me and said, "There is no medical reason for doing this." I couldn't believe that medical professionals, dedicated to helping and healing could inflict such pain and anguish on an innocent newborn baby unnecessarily.
Basically, men are "outies" and women are "innies" (we are all female until like week 10 until the hormones make the buds go in or out), would you want someone to have removed your clitoris / hood just so you could be protected against something that may not even happen?
First, do no harm
There is no absolute medical indication for routine circumcision of the newborn
Circumcision of the male child cannot be considered an essential component
of adequate total health care
Sadly, there have even been instances when a child was circumcised
without the parents' wishes or consent (in labor I told EVERYONE I came into contact with at the hospital that under no circumstances was my son to be cut)
The fact is that circumcision confers no immunity to any of these diseases; thousands of men with AIDS...are testimony to the failure of circumcision
to offer any degree of immunity to AIDS infections
No one seriously advocates removing the breasts of female infants
to prevent this more common malignancy of breast cancer
Circumcision must be recognized as an equally serious mutilation of men
with equally insubstantial justification for continuing the practice...Most often a poor surgical result is not recognized until years after the event
On balance, circumcision is an unjustifiable preventive for penile cancer
with an unacceptable number of serious complications
The adverse long term consequences of infant circumcision
on the sexual health of American men must be recognized
by physicians, parents, and legislators
