Re: Who will run against Trump in 2020?

Yeah, I dunno, I really hope Mike Gravel has all his faculties about him because if this is just some teens taking advantage of a befuddled 88-year-old man to run a prank that is not cool at all.

Well, he did win the popular vote and would have won the electoral college as well if the governor of the closest state hadn't been the brother of his competitor.

also lol @ circumcision haters, you guys got smelly dirty peepees and they look smaller all stuffed in that little burrito. mutilating your child's genitals should be mandatory unless you wanna give chicks (or dudes) a reason not to suck his dick. it's a passive aggressive form of cockblocking
No, circumcision in men is done for exactly the same reason it's done for women, to decrease the amount of pleasure received during sex. It's far more harmful to women than men, no question, but it's still barbaric no matter which gender it's applied to.

If you want to cut pieces of skin off your dick then do it when you're an adult and can give consent, rather than forcing it on babies who have no say one way or another.

Circumcision and reparations, seems like 2 excellent topics for democratic candidates to focus on if they want to win the general. I hope they add the use of alternative gender pronouns to their platform also... another major issue facing our country that goes over great in PA and OH.

wrong, male circumcision is done to prevent various infections, cit, and the practice is statistically sound:

Quote:
Most syphilis studies reported a substantially reduced risk among circumcised men (summary RR = 0.67, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.54 to 0.83), although there was significant between study heterogeneity (p = 0.01). The reduced risk of HSV-2 infection was of borderline statistical significance (summary RR = 0.88, 95% CI 0.77 to 1.01). Circumcised men were at lower risk of chancroid in six of seven studies (individual study RRs: 0.12 to 1.11).

Mom used to tell the story of how my father had his done in adulthood and was a much bigger baby about it than I was as an infant

dino, maybe we shouldn't vaccinate people until they reach age of consent, either

I don't think parents should mutilate their children's genitals without consent, but killing them before they are born is fine.

Yeah dude that's totally the same thing.

Circumcision is US was definitely started as a puritanical anti-sex thing. Medical benefit arguments came in much later after circumcision was established practice. Also the reduced risk of disease are always portrayed as a significant reduction in risk, when what it really means is that instead of a 1/400 chance of contracting a disease, its now 1/300 if you're circumcised. It's not some miracle cure. It's not like European dicks are aflame with every STD known to man, from some googling it seems like US STD rates may be higher than Europe (yeah yeah many variables at play here).

Re: Who will run against Trump in 2020?

Just imagine a world where everything else was the same except circumcision never happened, then imagine the reaction you'd get if you tried to propose the widespread (near universal) adoption of the practice. How far do you think you'd get?
