Criminalised infant circumcision until the age of consent.

Young British boys are being circumcised without proper consent and the police are covering up evidence, CPS, Health Visitor and social service services are all failing us. Currently this practise is not a criminal offense the only protection a helpless baby boy has is the hope that one of his parents will have the sense to object such abuse and protect him. But when it is done without appropriate consent it should be treated as child abuse and assault. Why should it be done with both parents consent if it had to be done at all? The answer to this is because we have a legal system ready to take a draconian approach to protecting women. This system as necessary as it maybe, fails especially when women lie to get the men out of the way so they can circumcise their children without consent. So why do we consider this barbaric practise ok and allow it to go on? Is it because we are afraid of being called racist or have we been bribed to look the other way? Whatever the reason they have let children down badly.


Who is responsible for protecting the human right of children if they are at risk from their parent? What happen when this is failed? Is social services supposed to encourage this barbaric practice because of either one of the parent religious orientation? Someone in social services did, and made comparisons with his own children who were also circumcised. Who have we got running our offices? Is it the child abusers themselves? Who is responsible to protect the children and stop them from becoming victims of this abusive culture?  There is evidence of lack of awareness about the true damage both psychologically and physically done to these unfortunate and helpless babies.  Then we wonder why some men have a propensity for violent and sexual abuse.

Women are at a lost as well when it comes to male circumcision because they can never be fully satisfied sexually. Women who had the opportunity to have experienced both will attest to this fact.  Unknowingly to some women, this caused them to become gay, as they would most definitely have more fun with a strap on than with a circumcised male. This sadly leaves the circumcised male to wonder the street seeking younger children for sexual gratification which their innate awareness tells them it exist.


There is a link between circumcised men and grooming of young British girls for sex. Circumcision of helpless male babies should be criminalised. The result of circumcision namely lack of sexual gratification through deprived sensual pleasure are forcing abusers to seek younger girls. Sadly they were robbed of this pleasure from a young age themselves. The problem can only be solved if the cause is addressed otherwise we will always be at the effects of these heinous crimes. 

It is the responsibility of all of us including the Religious establishment Government and or the community to change the mindset and take action to bring this barbaric act to an end.  The doctor who carries out circumcision need to learn and accepts that they don’t have to deprive the younger generation of their birthright just because they were abused themselves. This sadly is a real turn on for some of them and the reason they do it. In some cases doctors might need counselling to help them stop this abuse and come to terms with the consequences of such act. Failing to be gratified by abusing children through circumcision, they might seek their pleasure in other ways. Therefore counselling should help these doctors not to wonder the street looking for you girls as well. I once met a Muslim surgeon whilst doing my nursing placement in the theatre, he was a very nice man and we talked about many things one of which was circumcision. He said if he had a choice he would never had had it done and it was not a religious requirement. So why are we taking this choice away from helpless male babies?

The prepuce (foreskin) is not just a piece of skin, and it is not a separate part of the penis. The prepuce is an integral part of the normal, natural skin system of the penis. It is an extremely complex structure, and an organ of highly specialized functionality. When the foreskin is amputated, nerves, gland, and other tissue structures that comprise the prepuce, are amputated along with the 'foreskin'.

The amputation of the prepuce has a radical, highly destructive, long-term physical effect on the penis, and a severe psychological impact on the child - and ultimately the adult male.

Circumcision radically alters the penis, disrupts the normal, natural physiology of sexual intercourse, ingrains lifelong psychological patterns upon the newborn, and has produced very disturbing sociological effects upon men and our society.

Amputation of the prepuce deprives a man of upwards of 90 percent of the erogenous sensitivity his penis was designed to feel.

In addition, amputation of the prepuce externalizes the gland. The gland is an internal organ. It was meant to be protected by the prepuce. The glands contained within the preputial tissue secrete natural emollients which moisturize and maintain the sensitivity of the glands. Once the prepuce is amputated, the glands is exposed to the elements, and it quickly develops a thick layer of keratinized (dead) skin cells to protect it from abrasion. This 'callusing' deadens the sensitivity of the glands to external stimulation, further reducing the erogenous pleasure a normal penis was meant to provide a man.

It is sad in this day and age that we stand back and allow helpless babies to be abused, robbed of their god given right and wonder why they turn into monsters. The grooming and abused of young girls is done in the hope that circumcised men will gain the pleasure that they were denied, when they were circumcised. Not every Muslim circumcised their children those who do also condone forced marriage.  There is an embedded sadistic element that needs to be addressed as well. Of course there is nothing that can be done for the gangs now and they should know better. But it is worth emphasising that they were victim too.

The question therefore we should be asking ourselves is how have we contributed to this situation of gang grooming, what did we do to protect them from being mutilated? What did we do stop them from being robbed of the birthright to enjoy sensual pleasure? This is by no mean trying to justify the gang’s actions, but when we sit back and did nothing to avert this situation then we bloody well deserve what we get. It does not have to continue this way we can make changes either by consent or by law it is our choice as a nation and humanity to do so.

Circumcision =mutilation =Sexual abuse. This is no different to Gangs grooming except one is widely ignored. Like sexual mutilation Rape is also encouraged in some culture in the case of forced marriage. These cultures which condone to these practises should be educated.
Webster's Dictionary defines circumcise as follows ...

cir•cum•cise:
to cut off the prepuce of (a male) or the clitoris of (a female)

"It is strange that doctors in Western countries will not permit female circumcision, which involves removal of some or all of the erogenous tissue from the vulva ... but will permit, and in some cases encourage, the removal of the male prepuce, which is identical to the female prepuce in its embryological development, cell structure, and nerve and blood supply."
- E. Wallerstein, Circumcision: an American Health Fallacy

"The forced amputation of a healthy part of an infant's or child's genitals without his consent, whether in the name of medicine, religion or social custom, is a violation of his human rights."
- Paul M. Fleiss. MD, MPH

"Those who would circumcise, implicitly suggest that they know better than nature, God, or whatever power created us and our world."
- Ronald Goldman, Ph.D, Circumcision: The Hidden Trauma

Webster's New Dictionary of Synonyms ...

Mutilate:
implies the cutting off or removal of a part essential to completeness,
not only of a person but also of a thing, and to his or its perfection,
beauty, entirety, or fulfilment of function.

“God created perfection those who distorts the creation of God is doing the work of the devil”. Quotation from the Quran, this implies those doctors who mutilate children are doing the work of the devil. Why does it still go on then?  

Campaigning to stop child mutilation irrespective of religion custom or culture until the child reaches the age of consent.


Together we can change for the better.

      I was circumcised as an infant, without any valid medical reason. I don't want to see any infant male ever subjected to unnecessary circumcision.

      Being born into an Australian family of British ancestory, males are always left intact. I personally am very thankful that I am a 'whole' male.
