“No. You’re less susceptible to yeast infections and urinary-tract infections [after circum-cision]. I realize you don’t have the same nerve endings after you’re cut. And I get that it’s important to some people [to have the nerve endings]. But I don’t think it’s an issue the government should step into.”

“Yes, it’s a valid issue for the LGBT community. Some parents want it done to their child as a religious tradition. But the surgical procedure is unnecessary and dated. They should wait until the boy reaches his teen years and let him decide for himself.”

“Yes, definitely. Circumcision is altering an intimate part of someone’s body. You don’t experience the same sensations once you’ve had it done. A person has a right to bodily integrity. It should be your prerogative, not your parents’.”
