I don’t want to talk about it (young male).
If you can’t talk about it then you shouldn’t be doing it to your son.

I don’t need to see a picture (a young mother).

No, it’s an amputation!

I do it for cosmetic reasons (an ObGyn doctor).

You’re more likely to be struck by lightning than to suffer from penile cancer.

It protects against penile cancer (an elderly man).
You need to cut off the whole penis to prevent penile cancer.

Circumcised penis is cleaner (a young woman).
A circumcised vagina is cleaner too. No nasty skin folds, no smegma buildup, flat and clean and no chance of ever developing cancer!

It protects against AIDS (a homosexual male).
The US has the highest rate of circumcision among the industrialized nations, and the highest rate of AIDS. Obviously, it hasn’t protected Americans.

Why, do you think Jewish and Muslim boys should suffer? Are you anti-Semitic?

You’re not fine, a movable and sensitive part of your penis is missing, and you’re not even aware of it.

I don’t think it’s a torture; it’s a personal opinion (a mother).

He’ll be teased in the locker room (a pregnant woman).
Who teases who? Tell your son that he’s got something they miss.

You are biased (a medical student).
The irrational desire to cut off pieces of children’s sexual organs is the bias.

Is rape under anesthesia OK?

I prefer circumcised penis (a mother).
Are you planning on having sex with your son? It’s illegal to impose your sexual fetishes on your child.

It’s the parent’s decision (mother).
A parent doesn’t have the right to harm a child.
