... I am shocked that a boyfriend/partner would influence someone to frankly, mutilate their genitalia...


In addition, I'm also shocked that someone of that age would allow themselves to be talked into it.

I agree on this only, people often find themselves in manipulative relationships. Whilst it's easy to say in hindsight, at the time the alternative might have seemed worse to the OP.

But that's exactly to my point, that they allow themselves to be manipulated by a BF, of what sounded like not a very long relationship. His post gave no indication of being held at gun point or any extensive coercion other than BF wanting it and offering to pay for it.

He actually agreed to go into a (minor) surgery where they were going to lop off part of his body. I would have spent quite a bit of time and consideration on that one. That's not an "I was drunk and got a tattoo" event.

I seriously do not get people who allow themselves to be in that kind of manipulative relationship. I can't stand to even be around it. I took a trip by motorcycle over the summer. The gay couple turned out to be very much that way. After a few days I couldn't take being around it anymore and split.

Actually Canadians circumcise about 30+% of newborn males, it's about 60% in the US, 65% of Australians, and Jews circumcise, so that's all of Israel (population about 8.7 million). In addition to that, it is common/standard for Muslim boys to be circumcised, and there are nearly 2 billion Muslims on the planet. So your understanding of it is erroneous, and it is not "an aberration".

They do it to children for one reason only, although they hide behind religion or hygene and that is : they do not want you to masturbate.

It is fine to be circumsized, you are not alone, and some guys are really into it, so do not feel weird about it.

But I do *edit* condemn parents that have it done to their children if there is no medical reason.

I am also against baptazing children.

I think you meant to say "condemn." The verb "to condone" means "to endorse."

The truth is, love IS blind and they do not notice until it is late. That is what clever manipulation is all about....
