I hear it's the most normal thing in the US for a baby boy to have it's dick mutilated soon after he's born.

What's up with this shit? Seriously, what's wrong with you people?

Apparently it was supposed to be a deterrent from masturbation originally, even though it doesn't stop you from masturbating.

was started by religious nuts to make the penis less sensitive so they wouldn't feel the need to touch themselves and not masturbate
now they believe that its more hygienic

We follow World Health Organization standards?

I mean, I'm sure that the actual motivation in many to most cases is at least largely aesthetic, but the fact remains that if infant male circumcision was a universal practice HIV would be massively reduced or obliterated entirely.

Nonsense. Plus, it helps none against transmission from a man to a woman.

Perhaps where it's more difficult to be clean and a foreskin is likely to become a breeding ground for HIV but if you just clean your damn penis sometimes there isn't going to be that problem; it's the USA, a clean, modern country, not bloody Africa or Kenya or Uganda. There's no need for it there!

Plus, 17.8% of South Africans have HIV or AIDS
Only 0.3% of the US has HIV or AIDS

So what are you guys afraid of?

Declaring a well-researched scientific consensus to be nonesene doesn't do much to mitigate it, reducing ftm transmission dramatically is enough to massively increase herd immunity, and transmission factors are not merely reduceable to a matter of ease of cleaning one's penis.

So, the point when you're in a country without a real HIV problem?
