Circumcision is Kind Of Messed Up

Almost 80% of AMAB people are circumcised, but is it necessary?

Worldwide, that number is 30%)viavia

The benefits are a little contentious.

looking like one's parent or peers

+It's a non-reversible procedure.

+While it can be more costly and dangerous for someone to be circumcised later in life, it's entirely possible to wait until the person is older and can give informed consent for the procedure.

So while there are some pros... is it necessary?

as was the case in Bulgaria

My conclusion? It's kinda messed up.

There's no overwhelming reason not to wait until someone is older and let them decide if they want to be circumcised. Yes, the cost increases because of the use of anaesthesia, but circumcision seems like a really personal choice. Especially when the evidence that it's actually beneficial is so contentious (and relies heavily on the assumption that the person being circumcised will have sex in certain ways and with multiple partners) it seems medically unnecessary to perform the procedure during infancy. Why rush?

Actual feminist. Awkward explorer. Professional fangirl. Definitely always hungry.
