Re: Yes another circumcision post-no flaming!

Oh, also, a study out of the UK has shown that the foreskin causes no more than its own share of problems -- meaning no more than the eyelid, or earlobe, or other bodily parts. When we do hear of someone having a foreskin issue, the immediate cultural response of many here in a culture where circumcision is common is that it should have been cut off at birth to eliminate the problem. Well -- this study has shown that to be inaccurate, unless you also want to remove many other bodily parts. And of course, there's also the issue of the *functions* of the foreskin, which many seem unaware of.
