Yes, poor little babies! The "operation" is so agonising and terrifying- it is wicked abuse of a little human who is helpless. If an adult wants to pay to get this "operation" that is up to him, but to do it to a helpless baby ( where they use no anesthetic) should be illegal!!! The NHS will not carry out this operation as routine as it is rightly considered as unnecessary with no "medical benefits."

It started in 19th century America by that Kellog bloke who said it would stop boys playing with their genitals:

In the United States, circumcision wasn't popularized until Victorian times, when a few doctors began to recommend it to prevent children from masturbating. Dr. Kellogg (of Corn Flakes fame) advocated circumcision for pubescent boys and girls to stop masturbation: "A remedy which is almost always successful in small boys is circumcision, especially when there is any degree of phimosis. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without administering an anæsthetic, as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment... In females, the author has found the application of pure carbolic acid to the clitoris an excellent means of allaying the abnormal excitement" (Kellogg 1877). Circumcision caught on among the sex-negative Victorians, but only wealthy parents could afford it. In 1932, only 31% of men were circumcised; this peaked around 85% in 1980, and has been dropping ever since (Laumann 1997, Wallerstein 1980). Far from an ancient tradition, it was only popular in post-war America; think of it as "your parent's body mod."

Notice that girls also were also targeted with carbolic acid!!!

Imagination... its limits are only those of the mind itself.

It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears.
