Our thanks to Keith for this piece in Heat Street. It’s good to see the article, but (as usual) dispiriting to read content like this:
Another says “foreskin contains 20,000 specialized nerve endings. Circumcision removes them.” And perhaps the most novel argument against the practice; “circumcision was introduced in America as a way to ‘cure’ masturbation in boys.” Certainly many Jewish people would not agree as the practice first appeared in the bible. [J4MB: The prior sentence says ‘in America’, meaning the United States – it surely alludes to Kellogg, and his ilk, who favoured both MGM and the application of carbolic acid to girls’ clitorises to ‘cure’ masturbation – which then didn’t exist as a country, and wouldn’t exist until thousands of years afterwards.]
Widespread circumcision in the U.S. is a product of medical research that showed it was a way to prevent infection and disease. [J4MB: No ‘medical research’ that bears scrutiny has EVER showed that.]
