GRRRR! This kinda stuff makes me so angry.<br><br><a href="http://www.pedsurology.com/circumci.htm" target="_blank">http://www.pedsurology.com/circumci.htm</a><br><br><a href="http://www.circumcisioninfo.com/circ_record.html" target="_blank">http://www.circumcisioninfo.com/circ_record.html</a><br><br><br>
Okay, it also seems all the websites that have .org are against circumcision, but the ones that are .com are for circumcision. Why is this, just a random question I was wondering about.

Those websites are full of inaccurate pro-circ garbage.<br><br>
I found it interesting that under FGM, they wrote<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">The Academy is absolutely opposed to this practice in all forms as it is disfiguring and has no medical benefits.</td>
</tr></table></div>
Is MGM not also disfiguring with no medical benefits? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

People claim FGM has no medical benefits, but fail to mention that the procedure has never been studied enough to find any "benefits" like male circumcision has.<br><br>
Anyway, the pedsuro site had some misinformation on it, but it also included stuff about meatal stenosis at least. Even if it didn't outrightly name the condition. It was more even-handed than most sites.<br><br>
But that circumcisioninfo site is set up and run by Brian Morris I believe. He's a "researcher" and an Austrailian circumfetishist.

YEP. That was the main thing that got me. The difference of how FGM and MGM is talked about on these pro-circ sites! How are they not the same?<br><br>
It's sad too because new moms who wanna "research" google circumcision and that is a site that comes up, then they blindly make the decision to circ and say that they have "researched"

The pedsurology site is apparently a group of doctors that probably make money off of circumcision. I have to question the credibility of someone when they stand to make money from their recommendation.

Simple...the .com's are trying to sell you something...commerce ...in circumcision.<br><br>
The .orgs are trying to stop you from mutilating a child...there is no $$$ in that hence the .org
