As a woman, I'm now discussing with an uncircumsized man why male circumcision on infants is bad... He disagrees and 'doesn't care' (and claims men don't care either, even though our country is thinking of banning the use for non-medical reasons). And he also claims that it's not-ok for females because it's 'true' mutilation, whereas male circumcision is not. Yet he hates SJWs and feminism... Point being: This is probably the most awkward discussion I've ever had lol

I’ve noticed that, among the anti-sjw community, this seems to be one of the more commonly disagreed on topics.

The facts are that Circumcision:

  • Is unnecessary
  • Causes harm to the infant, as it is performed without anesthetic
  • Can have long-term negative effects, both physically and mentally
  • Kills over 100 boys each year in the US alone (it’s unclear whether this is from the procedure alone, or includes complications caused by the procedure)
  • Has been labeled a human rights violation by many health organizations in the EU.
  • Has minimal to no benefits
  • Is mutilation as defined as “an act of physical injury that degrades the appearance or function of any living body, sometimes causing death.”

Circumcision decreases penile sensitivity

Circumcision associated with sexual difficulties

Circumcision linked to alexithymia

The exaggeration of the benefits of circumcision in regards to HIV/AIDS transmission

Circumcision/HIV claims are based on insufficient evidence

There is no case for the widespread implementation of circumcision as a preventative measure to stop transmission of AIDS/HIV

Circumcision decreases sexual pleasure

Circumcision decreases efficiency of nerve response in the glans of the penis

Circumcision policy is influenced by psychosocial factors rather than alleged health benefits

Circumcision linked to pain, trauma, and psychosexual sequelae

Circumcision results in significant loss of erogenous tissue

Circumcision has negligible benefit

Neonatal circumcision linked to pain and trauma

Circumcision may lead to need for increased care and medical attention in the first 3 years of life

Circumcision linked to psychological trauma

Circumcision may lead to abnormal brain development and subsequent deviations in behavior

So if anyone who follows me, or anyone reading this, still supports infant male circumcision, I have only one question to ask you:

What makes you think you have the right to decide what happens to someone else’s body?

He was very interested in MRA

He never joined any MRA sites. You’re wrong about this.

He literally said he hated women
He was a misogyist and thing is misogyny kills men and trans people too, not just women.
It doesn’t matter what religion he was, what colour his skin was, if he was mentally ill or not he was STILL A MISOGNYIST.

He said he wanted to kill all men except himself. So you’re wrong about that, too.

Idiot. You act like women are the only people who experience hate.

Ever heard of the word misanthrope?

Get your head out of your ass.

He was a misogynist. He wanted to kill mostly women, that’s why he targeted the sorority house (but the door was locked).

But he killed 3 men first off. With a knife. He asked people how to wipe out all of male-kind except himself.

Again, a misanthropist.

You cannot ignore his war against men and try to erase that. The facts refuse to let you.

I know. You can be a misogynist and a misanthropist. He hated women for not giving him sex and men for getting in the way of that. He wanted women to be killed in concentration camps (he wrote that in his manifesto). I know he killed men, no one should erase them. But please don’t ignore all of intentions (there are many, including straight up misogyny).

So misogyny of concentration is worse than the misandry of wanting to wipe out all men, ever, except for himself, by the use of disease.

Like if I were to say I hate white people for one reason and blacks for another and I fired a comet at North America and missed, but chunks of it hit Earth and took out Houston, Texas, the real tragedy here is that so many whites died and that I hate whitey. Everyone else, well, it sucked for them too, but I hated white people and that’s all that we’re going to discuss…

That’s what your argument sounds like. Rodger hated men for one reason and women for another, but only the misogynistic part of his misanthropy is an issue.

I think we know what the world’s priorities are. A guy wages a gendercidal war on men, it’s meh, but when it comes to women, awooogah men are like poisoned M&M’s all men are responsible let’s crack down on teh menz…

SMDH…

When people were going on about this sort of behaviour after the 2001 terrorist attack they called it racial profiling. A problem they still fight against, but they are quite willing to throw their own families and friends under the bus as well as half the human population using the same justification.

BINGO!!!
