Frisco to Ban Male Circumcision?

27 Jun

According to the San Fransisco Examiner, a movement to ban male circumcision (on babies) may be on the ballot this November. And you know what? I kind of agree with it. I mean babies are helpless innocent little people who just got tossed into this crazy world. I don’t know if it’s anyone’s right to physically alter them in a way that’s irreversible – right?

Myths about uncircumcised guys having issues with hygiene etc. have long been dispelled. Yet, we as a society impose our idea of normalcy on our little baby boys every day. So I get that some people do it for religious reasons, but are the rest of us just doing this so that our kid has the best shot at fitting in with his peers? If so, that doesn’t seem like a great reason to me! What do you think?

    Right or wrong i’m not sure.. All I know is that I’m glad my parents made the decision to have it done.
