Naturalistic fallacy ldo.
While my parents are, at best, weakly religious, me and my brothers are all circumsized, but I wouldn't circumsize my children. What is the point? However, I don't support a ban. The reason is this: if we are going to ban something, there needs to be clear evidence that it is causing harm. Having a foreskin or not seems to be a relatively arbitrary thing, one is hardly better off with or without it. Yes it is a permanent change, but not one that is causing harm with people later in life running arround thinking "oh how I wish this had not occured" (maybe I am wrong, but I have never heard such a claim). It is just a silly religious practice without a big negative and while I don't have any desire to participate in silly religious practices, I don't want to ban them either.
