Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"I guess you like to circumcise your periods too. Me thinks the laddy doth protest too much..."

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"The fact that the prepuce is common to almost all mammals, male and female, and has been for millions of years does add weight to the notion of its utility. This is especially true considering the male genitals are the instrument of reproduction and…"

"Hello. Thanks for your comment. May I ask where you come from and if you have any sons?"

Anthony Hordern replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Circumcision before the age of sexual activity in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"Vaccination is a controversial subject. There are people who are anti-vaccination but pro-circumcision, and there are people who are pro-vaccination but anti-circumcision. There are people who advocate for both and there are people who advocate…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Circumcision before the age of sexual activity in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"I think it is silly. I'm aware that a small minority of males do this, usually intact males in circumcising cultures who do not want to get circumcised but have been made to erroneously believe it is healthy to keep the glans exposed. The glans…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Circumcision before the age of sexual activity in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"Most parents do not knowingly or willing abuse their children. But most parents do make mistakes, sometimes big ones. Circumcision is such a mistake. It can be hard for us to admit our mistakes, but until we do we will never learn. Many mothers who…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Circumcision before the age of sexual activity in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"No consensus among the medical community? I suppose that is why the vast majority of doctors in the world don't practice RIC? No national medical organisation in the world recommends RIC, although some condemn it. It is banned in some places.…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Ruth Anthony-Gardner's discussion Circumcision before the age of sexual activity in the group Parenting Little Heathens
"The two are most definitely comparable. There are many different kinds of male and female genital mutilation. Type 1a and 2a and Type 4 female mutilations are less severe than the average male circumcision. Many circumcised women claim to experience…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"The financial cost of the procedure differs depending on location. Sometimes it is covered by public healthcare and sometimes it is not. The gross financial cost of a neonatal circumcision in the first world is usually hundreds of dollars.…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"Thanks for your response. I do not believe that Rob or myself have treated you with disrespect. And I don't think we have been attacking you. Criticising, yes. Chastising, maybe. But not attacking. I do, however, apologise for coming on so…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"  All the skin on the penis ("attached to the penis") is a Part Of The Penis. It is all "the penis". It is all natural genital anatomy. If cutting the prepuce off the female constitutes a mutilation then cutting it off the…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"  Many doctors used to recommend labotomies and leaching; it doesn't make their opinions valid. You say some doctors recommend it while others feel it is unnecessary. This is an incomplete appraisal, as many doctors go further than saying…"
Feb 3, 2011
Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"And now, as ever, it is good to challenge social custom and religious tradition. At least that is necessary for the few of us who actually have some regard for truth and freedom. This is especially true regarding our attitudes about sexuality and…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"You seem to me like a man who is simultaneously trying to be objective and yet also trying to justify your own circumcision. You're wrong about circumcision being simpler and safer than appendectomy and tonsilectomy. Few people die from those…"
Jan 22, 2011
Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"You are right that the word 'mutilation' has a strong inherently negative connotation. And there are both pros and cons in using it to describe male infant circumcision. The first pro is that it makes people think about something that they…"

Anthony Hordern replied to Eric R.'s discussion Circumcision and genital mutilation: let's discuss.
"Usually boys begin masturbating before 17. A teenager should have a physical exam with a doctor at certain periods and the penis should be examined. Of course it would be nice if children could discuss these things openly and easily with their…"
