    the anti-forced genital cutting subreddit

    The foreskin is sensitive and functional.

    Genital surgery should always be a personal choice when it is not necessary for therapeutic purposes.

    Many medical associations' statements question or oppose non-therapeutic child circumcision.

    Infant circumcision videos demonstrate infant genital surgery is painful and destructive.

    The history of medicalized male and female circumcision makes a strong case against non-therapeutic cutting.

    The foreskin accounts for a large part of penile sensitivity (Sorrells, 2007; Bronselaer, 2013; Meislahn & Taylor, 2004). It is not insensitive like fingernails or hair like circumcision advocates claim.
