So with so many people removing foreskin to prevent infection or HIV thought we could get a list going of other things we can remove to prevent bad things from happening.
So what will you be removing from your new born to "prevent" future problems? (this is suppose to be funny lol)
I think I will be removing my daughters breasts after all it will prevent breast cancer right?

Tonsils and adenoids. I know too many kids that get chronic infections that need them out later in life. And they are just pieces of skin hanging there anyway.
Appendix. A guy I know had to have his out when he was like 26. Can you IMAGINE!
toenails. I know a girl that had to have her ingrown toenails cut out. And she remembers how bad it hurt.
Spleen. I saw a teenager on a show once that ruptured his spleen in a football mishap. Take that sucker out at birth to save the trouble.

From the withered tree, a flower blooms~ He's here!!! So crazy in love with my boy!!! 12/14/11
teeth. i've had to have so many fillings as a teen/adult, including a crown, and its miserable! I even had to have my wisdom teeth out a few years ago and was in pain for days after!
Oh gosh, let's see...
Appendix. After all, it's totally useless and if we keep it, he may someday get appendicitis.
Tonsils, because I hear they can get infected.
The littlest piggies. I'm always getting ingrown toenails on those things, and I don't want my child to suffer through that. Also, I knew someone once who lost one of her little toes, and she was just fine without it, so they are clearly just extra parts.
Male nipples. I'm thinking of having my son's nipples removed, as I think it's weird for men to have nipples, they are useless, and I find them unattractive. After all, as the parent, my opinion of what is/isn't attractive is totally a good enough reason to remove parts of his body. He'll thank me later.
Oh yes, teeth, definitely. After all, we all have food processors. used mine a lot when I had my wisdom teeth out, and if you didn't know any different from drinkable food, it wouldn't make a difference...right?
I actually chopped off my kids face so he won't get acne in high school. Statistics say 1 in 2 boys will get acne at some point in their life.
Honestly, circ seems even more ridiculous than pretty much anything I can think of. Removing your kid's teeth even makes more sense.
Mammary glands on boys are the obvious choice. Seems many people don't know men even have mammary glands, so he won't miss them, but it will keep him from getting breast cancer.
And, geez, is it tough to clean in the labia of girls. Best to smooth that area out.
