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.

    Because the laws are being pushed on a religious basis, not a rational one.

      Is circumcision even a religious thing for most Americans?

        It’s because originally they thought it would prevent masturbation, which was considered self harm.

          Since then it is because of aesthetics and hygiene. Both of which are something that the person should decide as an adult.

            I think it’s more inertia than anything.
