Circumcision is genital mutilation for boys. Something the fucking boomers failed to realize.

I am Jew, I agree completely. I cannot seem to get other Jews to talk about this issue, they get very defensive and either spout nonsensical debunked studies showing lower rates of STDs (which does not even make sense logically anyway), or they get angry and change the subject.

Maybe it made sense to do this when my ancient brethren were nomads in the desert who probably didn't get to bathe or shower for days on end. Having a sandy infection in your foreskin is probably awful.

The thing is, I shower all the time now and I don't live in a desert. No son of mine will ever have anyone mutilate part his penis, unless for some reason (temporary insanity?) he elects to do it when he is an adult. I will strongly advise against. Any other Jew is welcome to try and change my mind on this.

I look at it that way. Just like eating kosher probably made sense 2,000 years ago but doesn't anymore.

Original circumcisions just cut off the "ridged band", the only part that can become pathologically tight, and at times it might have only meant the "dorsal slit" which is even less invasive, but the rules always change over time in Judaism based on what the rabbis think. Some liberal rabbi could claim a single needle prick is sufficient and it would be a valid opinion. All that matters is what benefits the Tribe the most at any given time. Interestingly enough, most Muslim "female genital mutilation" in the West is actually exactly this, a superficial needle prick, and yet it's the worst thing ever for some reason. Evangelicucks are just going by what their televangelists tell them, just like the rabbis.

Catholicism makes the most sense by having real priests, rather than anarchy, but making them have international magisterial councils every century or so to ever produce dogma. It's the most effective idiot filter there is for religion.

One function of foreskin is to protect the urinary tract from infection. The dartos muscle at the prepucial sphincter (tip of the penis) closes shut, acting as a one-way value that allows urine to exit but prevents contaminants from entering the penis. Urine is sterile and can be used to wash the penis in the absence of water. If you have enough water around for you to drink, then you have enough water to wash your dick.

Circumcision was never about health, and any Jew who is circumcised in a hospital by a doctor for health purposes rather than by a ritual circumciser for the sake of demonstrating obedience to the law has NOT completed a mitzvah. Such a Jew must return as an adult for hatafat dam brit "blood of the covenant" where the mohel draws blood by pricking the mutilation scar. Jewish circumcision is a human blood sacrifice ritual, not a medical procedure.
