Was just talking at dinner with family, and it seems a logical action to ban circumcision, as in most cases, doesn't have consent, and is a major (genitals are important) body modification. Can we ban it at the state level? Just a thought.

Because one is ordered by their favorite imaginary character in their favorite fairy tale book.

Except its not even, at least for christians. Its actually even considered a sin for catholics. https://catholicism.org/ad-rem-no-283.html

It became popular in the US because it was thought that it would stop people from masturbating. That’s why its an American thing and not a religious vs non religious thing (except for jewish people).

Yeah but Kellogg suggested circumcision as a punishment for when you were caught masturbating. Plus the recovery time would keep you from offending again in the short term.

Muslims aswell.

Does such an order actually exist or do they pull it out of their ass in some convenient interpretation?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 months ago

Probably the latter. Prepuces are actually a sign of the pact of the god with the Hebrews. Specifically.

It is in the Bible in Genesis 16:11. I have to say that if my god told me to cut off part of my dick I would be looking for a new religion though.

Rule 7- You can't intentionally annoy, mock, or harass other members.

If you intentionally annoy, mock, harass, or discriminate against any individual member, you will be removed.

Likewise, if you are a member, sympathiser or a resemblant of a movement that is known to largely hate, mock, discriminate against, and/or want to take lives of a group of people, and you were provably vocal about your hate, then you will be banned on sight.

Rule 8- All comments should try to stay relevant to their parent content.
