What I am saying, is from my experience control, confidence, and happiness are the real issues of circumcision. Being natural, having these extra benefits is nice, but its not the heart of the issue. But for a lot of women on this forum, they focus on that in the way they fight for this movement. Yet a man can truly be happy and be cut, but also a boy can feel just as victimized, and feel like he is on the outside and be uncut.
Male Infant circumcision should stop today. No one should be allowed to take away the most basic right any human can have, control over their own body. But resolving this issue is going to involve a lot more then just saying, "its natural, your wrong, and your taking away something that provides a slew of benefits." Doing this avoids the real negative effects circumcision has caused socially. And this horrible "tradition" is not going to change by just making men feel bad about themselves in a different way then before, or by going out to parents on a one by one basis. This is only going to be resolved through cultural shifts, where we as a society no longer look at the penis as something that needs to be changed (be that to add a new foreskin, or take the original away).
I don't want to make any man feel less confident or more victimized, but our goal is not to protect these grown men, it is to protect helpless babies. So again, please be more specific in how this cultural shift -- so that no more babies are cut -- can take place.
And just one more thought on our "perspectives"...
There are many of us in this forum who experience or have experienced painful sex because of our partner's circumcision. I would respectfully submit that you, as an 18 year old young man, have not experienced all of the same things as a peri-menopausal partner of a middle-aged man has. Things get more, ummm.... difficult as one ages. Being "happy" with a cut penis at 20 doesn't always equal being happy (or having a happy partner) at 50.
I think your heart is in the right place, I just don't think you're getting quite what we're doing here. And I do think we're making a difference. If I didn't, I couldn't keep coming here and reading such heart-breaking stories.
