Was just talking at dinner with family, and it seems a logical action to ban circumcision, as in most cases, doesn’t have consent, and is a major (genitals are important) body modification. Can we ban it at the state level? Just a thought.

    Circumcision is so weird. Like why are non religious people opting for that so much in the US?

      It’s a myth that circumcision is a religious practice in the US. It was actually started by a bunch of 19th Century health obsessed, vegetarian, noFap weirdos. It was a health fad to save your body, not your soul.

      I mention the vegetarianism to emphasize that these people were progressive, it’s just that many of their ideals were garbage.

        It is a religious practice for Jews … I completely agree with your point of it being a “health fad” for non-jews though.
