Strongly agreed. I wonder if any legislation has been proposed in US to outlaw non-consensual circumcision?
The I Am Not Thankful Campaign features many circumcised boys and men who are not thankful for their parents circumcising them. It is in retaliation to the excuse that parents use to justify their decision, "he'll thank me for it one day"
completely agree and never did this to my boys.
I've read that male circumcision can reduce the level of sensation. So, in a way, it similar to female circumcision.
Male circumcision reduces sensitivity and sensation. In the case of FGM, there are various types. There is one type where just the hood of the clitoris is taken off, so sexual pleasure isn't stopped
Though this may be crass, it's not hard to keep the foreskin clean. As the owner of one I can say that it's quite easy for anyone with just basic hygiene habits. The "risk of infection" is greatly exaggerated.
Infections caused by complications of the circumcision surgery are more common than infections resulting from not having it done. Infections can be prevented by washing. Children should be bathed anyway; what's one more part to wash?
