  • Ideally NEVER. But if you have to for whatever reason, definitely make that decision as an informed adult. Anything before that is insane.
    And the emphasis here should not just be on "adult" but also on "informed". Educate yourself on the medical/physiological effects of circumcision but also especially on its historical and sociological background. Because if you do so, you'll find out what barbaric and archaic bullshit circumcision really is.

  • I lean towards never or adulthood. I just don't think it's worth the risks.

    I recently saw a story of a guy in the gaming community who opened up about having major complications from it and that it has made him suicidal for most his life.

    • man such courage, I did some research and opted out for my boys.

    • @eschneider Yeah and the only reason he admitted to it was to defend himself against a false sexual assault allegation. Yeah I think it just makes more sense to let them make that decision for themselves later on. Like as far as I am aware you can still choose be circumcised later in life but you can uncircumcise yourself so to me it doesn't seem right to force that decision on my child especially when it's not necessary.

  • At birth, they will never remember it. My husband was clippedp at birth, as were all my nephews, and I think most of if not all the men I have been with as well.

    • Then I guess we should cut off girls' clitoris at birth, too.

  • It's his body, it should be his choice. And that means adulthood. I don't see a lot of ambiguity here.

  • never

  • After birth if at all

    • But of course it's best not to do it at all.

    • @BetterOffAlone i disagree but i’ll leave it up to the father to choose since he has a dick like the kid

    • Then I guess we should cut off clitorises from baby girls, too, so we can have gender equality.

  • Right after birth. That way its already done instead of needing to have it done and being in pain from it later

  • Should only be done after the age of majority, and only when a man understands the risks and affect it will have and consents to the procedure. Never to minors that can't possibly consent or are coerced into consenting.

  • d never in my view

  • Nil.

  • the age of consent.

  • A. At birth. A buddy of mine got it done when he turned 18, he was in quite a lot of discomfort for a few weeks.

    • Of course, circumcision is unneccesary

    • @BetterOffAlone I’m glad I got circumcised.

    • Enjoy your mutilated half-dick, then.

  • None. Leave that willy alone

  • It's only a few days after birth...

  • never

  • his body his choice amirite

  • I was circumcised at 6 or 7, I think this is the best age

  • Why do it.

  • Never, genital mutilation is disgusting

  • None of them. Mutilation is wrong.

  • I don't want to remember it!

  • People who believe mutilating a child at birth, are fucking monsters. It’s wrong.
    Don’t mutilate a child’s genitals... let them choose of they want to or not as adults.

  • It's best to not get circumcised at all, but adulthood is the best time if it is done, because then the man has a say in it, since it's his penis.
