My Mood:
I still don't understand why parents buy into this stuff. cutting off my baby's nose might reduce the likelihood of him smoking and developing lung cancer, but I'm not going to mutilate my healthy baby for a fractional reduction in something caused by risky adult behavior.

Frankly this is another reason I'm happy to be an atheist. The truth is serious advocates want to circumcise because they think God wants them to do it, not because they think it's an objectively good idea. if I thought God wanted me to cut off my newborn's pinky toes not a doctor in the world would go along. The only difference between that and circumcision is commonality. the fact that something is common isn't enough to make it right.
