    Um, how are feet being compared to foreskins? You need those to walk. What do men need foreskins for, really? I can understand the protection angle, but we wear clothes now.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    To protect the delicate mucous membranes underneath. Of course without the foreskin those membranes callus up, and some sensation is lost.

    Lulz. I think it's funny cuz girls touch themselves too.

    Christianity is so funny. It brings me laughs nearly every day.

    My original comparison was not to feet, it was to the female labia- what is that for? We can make do without it, and it would be much easier to clean the lady business without all those folds and crevices. But we don't get rid of that-- we expect girls to learn to clean themselves thoroughly. It doesn't seem to be a problem for most women. And when women DON'T clean themselves thoroughly, nobody says "well obviously it's because you're not circumcised." It's because she's lax about hygeine.

    I was using the feet analogy in conjunction with the rolls eyes smiley to reference and highlight the ridiculousness of her statement.

    Unfortunately, I don't think they took my statement as I had intended.

    I probably just should have said "Welp, if I had wheels I'd be a wagon..."

    You'll still have to teach your kid to clean his junk, so circumcising him is not going to get you out of that. I never once chased my toddler son around telling him to clean smegma from his penis, though. All we did was clean the outside of it when he took a bath. The foreskin doesn't even usually retract until they're old enough to clean it themselves and by then you won't need to do any chasing.

    The number of misconceptions surrounding this topic never fails to amaze me.
    Ahh well I'm having a girl, so I dont really have to worry about it. And as of right now my husband and I do not want any more children after this one.

    Your statement was ridiculous for the same reason mine was (and it was meant to be). We typically like to keep all our body parts intact, and don't go cutting them off for convenience.

    Yes, but they can't very well waste their sperm because they don't make any. This tradition goes back to Hebraic times. I don't know why it spread so rapidly throughout the US but not in the rest of the gentile world. Only recently in the Phillipines where it is barbarically practiced without anesthesia on 7 year old boys.

    Who cares if we do?

    That's my whole friggin point. If you're not into it that's fine with me.

    But, like I've said before, don't call people "brutal" (a la FDG and common thoughts within western Europe) or look down your nose at those who chose a different path.

    Also, I think MAE made some pretty damn good points.
