PRO: With the foreskin removed, it’s easier to keep the penis clean.
CON: There’s no medical reason for the procedure, according to the AAP, which is why they’ve never officially endorsed it; plus, if kids are taught to clean themselves properly, foreskin won’t keep them from owning a clean schlong.
PRO: As circumcision rates drop in the U.S., this PRO is losing its relevance, but many new parents still cite it as a reason why they get Junior cut — his penis will look just like dear ol’ dad’s and like his friends’, so he won’t feel like his schlong is weird.
CON: Actual circumcision on a baby looks like torture. Seriously. It’ll make you shudder and then your balls will leap into your stomach.
