Chad, your case is obviously not the norm, as there are millions (if not billions) of men who have been circumcised without complications. On the other hand, there have also been men who had complications due to not being circumcised, and there is an increased risk of infection and other health issues.
I shouldn’t be surprised, but I think that all the comments about “genital mutilation” and “sexual assault” are going a bit overboard. It is a minor surgical removal of a tiny bit of excess skin, not “chopping off” a part of the body or “mutilation.” It is not done to reduce the frequency of masturbation (ridiculous!), and it is part of the religious tradition of many people. This is simply an invasion on the privacy of families, and this law should not be passed.
