It's sad because we are seeing a human being who had his body integrity violated for no reason. It's because we are seeing a baby that was subjected to pain for no reason. It's sad because he will have to deal with the questions of what was so important to have his most personal, private part altered. It's sad because he will have to deal with the repercussions and may never know that the long term problems are because of what someone did to him the second day of his life. It's sad because he will never experience the most personal loving act the way it was supposed to be experienced. It's sad because his sex life may end years earlier that it was supposed to. It's sad because his life and health was put at risk for no reason. It's sad because the guardians of health, the medical profession, refuses to speak out strongly against a cultural abnormality resulting in millions of abnormal men added to the world every year.
In fact, everything about circumcision is sad. There is nothing good or happy or wholesome about it. It is simply a preversion of our society and a violation of men's bodies.
