Circumcision is just a surgery, that’s all, and on its own it’s not good or bad. It’s how we use it that is bad. If circumcision was just done when therapeutically necessary, we wouldn’t be here making all this noise. But because someone made it into a religious ritual and then someone made it into a social custom and then another person tried to justify it as prophylaxis or prevention or inherited aesthetic forced upon those who did not request it and could not remove themselves from the situation, that’s why we are here, and that’s why we are not leaving and shutting up. Because it’s not fair for those who are coming after us, to go through what we went. To grow up and then one day find out in the most strange way that a part of their body was discarded with the permission (or not) from their parents, as if it was some sort of biological waste. It’s not fair for them.
