Sometimes they say someone...should be circumcised because of hygiene. But the argument against that is if you wanna clean under your nails, you don't cut your nails off. Dustin Hoffman on circumcision Opinions don't affect facts. But facts should affect opinions, and do, if you're rational. -Ricky Gervais Elaine: ...I've got to find a mohel. Kramer: You should call this off, Elaine. It's a barbaric ritual. George: But Kramer, isn't it a question of hygiene? Kramer: Oh, that's a myth. Besides, you know, it makes sex more pleasurable. Why is foreskin such a big deal? The big deal is that many millions of little boys are genitally mutilated and have their foreskins removed and I think that's wrong. We have foreskins for a reason and I think it's a terrible thing to hack off one of the most sensitive parts of your body. So, I have become an intactivist. Go to Intact America or NORM-UK to find out more. May the foreskin be with you. -Alan Cumming Personal choice... You keep using that phrase. I do not think that means what you think it means. Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? I will always stand for the perfection of babies. -Russell Crowe No! We [Scottish] don't do that! For me... when I'm having sex, that's the amazing [part]. Gerard Butler, on not being circumcised. Women don't have penises! You can't talk about a sex organ that you don't have! 52% of OB/GYNs are me. Your argument is illogical. ...we condemn the people who cut off girls' clitorises, but when it happens to boys... it is the most sensitive part of their bodies, it has loads of nerve endings, and it can go horribly wrong. I'm speaking out against it. - Alan Cumming, Salon.com This is the way ALL men are born! Mario Lopez on being intact. Foreskin: Good enough for the royal family. Diana, the Princess of Wales, refused to continue the tradition. Kramer: A bris? You mean snip-snip? Stan: yeah. Kramer: I would advise against that. Elaine: Kramer, it's a tradition. Kramer: Well, so was sacrificing virgins to appease the gods, but we don't do that anymore. Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Babies are born perfect. - Russell Crowe Well, I think anything that affects the rest of your life, you should probably have a decision in... What we do to our children now, we also do to the men they will become. Please don't limit your son's future. Ricky Gervais, on infant circumcision I agree with you that men should not be circumcised... I don't know where this circumcision came from... There's been all kinds of myths. I think it's nonsense. if you're born that way, it seems to me it's a mutilation to cut if off. - Howard Stern Circumcision is genital mutilation - Roseann Barr Yes, you're right. Intact is so gross. All of these sexy men are intact. The rate of transmission of sexually transmitted diseases does not mean you can cut part of the body off an infant. - Penn Jillette on circumcision So... you can have this chopped off, or you can wash it, your call. That's a tough choice there! - Craig Ferguson It's a greuson, horrible procedure. People try to say it doesn't hurt! That's bullshit! Mario Lopez on circumcision To get a PG-13 rating, we had to cut out the actual description of circumcision... you have to clamp on the foreskin, pull it over, and then slice it off. Yeah, that is apparently really uncomfortable for people to hear... but I think it's important to know! Cameron Diaz on filming What to Expect when you're expecting
We believe, if you have the information necessary to see circumcision in a new light, free from cultural blinders, you will not choose it for your son. Your protective instincts will scream NO as far as the ear can hear.
