This site seems to have a lot of benefits of circumcision that were not mentioned in this article. For instance some diseases are so rare, Penile Cancer being one that they say that its almost unheard of for a male that was circumsized around birth to even get it. Its only for those that are uncircumsized would there be a risk.
I would encourage those to read up on some of the more medical facts to this.
You would be better served to avoid sites that are set up by circumfetishists, as circinfo.net and circlist and others are. Don't believe me? Take a look at the perversion for yourself, but if you have a weak stomache, then just trust me on this one.
Circinfo.com is the homepage for the "International Circumcision Information Reference Centre" (ICIRC). Anyone that does considerable research into circumcision learns who the people are that create these "informational" websites for parents, and what their real motives are. It's not easy to trace the roots of this information, but there is a trail left by their actions that is impossible to deny. One of the benefits of the Internet is that information often stays, even after someone tries to delete it and cover their tracks.
On the circinfo.com website, you will see that it is owned by a group called The Gilgal Society ("The International Circumcision Information Reference Centre is sponsored by The Gilgal Society" from the circinfo.com home page). You can go to www.netsol.com
and do a "whois" search on the Gilgal Society's homepage, another "informational" website, (www.gilgalsoc.org
) and you will see that it is owned by a guy in the UK named Vernon Quaintance (this is public information, I am not saying anything that is confidential). You can confirm that this "vernon" is tied to IRCIRC/circinfo.com by googling this link from his personal webpage "http://www.users.dircon.co.uk/~vernon/ICIRC". You will see that it used to link to the ICIRC page (the link has now been broken but it now forwards you to www.circinfo.com)
. BTW, "gilgal" means "circle" (as in "circumcision", which means to cut around in a circle). You can verify that this "vernon" is Vernon Quaintance by
looking at his homepage here: http://www.users.dircon.co.uk/~vernon
Now is where it starts to get interesting... Vernon also hosted a UK website called "The Acorn Society" http://www.users.dir.../~vernon/Acorn/
. This link will automatically forward you to The Acorn Society's website at http://www.acornsoc.org.uk
. This is another "informational" circumcision site, but there is a twist. It is also a circumsexual website. A "circumsexual" is someone that gets off sexually by the act of circumcising, watching circumcisions, performing circumcisions, looking at pictures of circumcisions, anything relating to circumcision. When they create these informational websites they are promoting their circumsexual fetishes. Many of the men involved undergo numerous circumcisions. Look at some of the articles in the Acorn publication: "Childhood Wish Fulfilled", "Penis Puppeteers", "A Well Cut ****", "In Love With Circumcision", "Long Awaited Second Circumcision", "Scar Line", "From The Other Side Of The Knife", "Circumcision Bonds Us Together", "Tall Oaks From Little Acorns Grow", "Doing It Yourself", "Celebrity Circumcision", "The History Boys", "Turkish Circumcision", "A Bargain Recut", "First Cut Is The Deepest", "Circumcision Mishaps", "My Background And Three Circumcisions", "Four Foreskins For Christmas, My Six Circumcisions - Part 1". These are just a few of the many circumsexual articles available by the creator/owner of circinfo.com. I think it is vital that parents understand the type of people that are out there promoting circumcision and what their real motives are. Parents that don't know how these wesites are all related have no idea behind the propaganda used to encourage the unnecessary circumcision of infant boys. Vernon is also a member of a prominent circumcision list where circumsexuals gather online daily.

Need I say more?
Now, if you're interested in what doctors, scientists, and researchers have to say on the subject, I suggest reading their actual words
. You can get it straight from the horses' mouths at www.cirp.org
, an online library of papers and publications dealing with circumcision.
As for circumcision reducing penile cancer? Give me a break.
