I do agree it’s hard to find inclusive language here especially as people take issue with uncircumcised which to me sounds neutral but I understand how people take issue with it I honestly think those are much more problematic and bad words to use though as uncut normalizes the procedure. Nobody Be Perfeet But If You Were Born In November 1956 You Are Pretty Close T-Shirt I get others finding it neutral but it is so far from neutral IMO as we shouldn’t refer to a penis by something that hasn’t happened to it, especially when the it is a harmful permanent practice. I agree that we should use try to use more inclusive language. Your reply isn’t showing up but there are studies that show removing the protective tissue does desensitize the penis which is harmful, but also all the benefits are iffy so why is it on the onus of those who believe in bodily autnomy rather than those who believe in non consensual damaging genital cutting to prove their side?

I don’t see how those issues would be prevented by cutting a baby’s foreskin off. It can be interpreted that way but it would require a bit of a leap. The most common sense interpretation is that the foreskin is important and cutting it off does reduce pleasure. Especially since logic says that if you remove important protective tissue then what it is supposed to be protecting will be desensitized. Nobody Be Perfeet But If You Were Born In November 1956 You Are Pretty Close T-Shirt I had it done as a baby and mine didn’t adapt to be like intact AMABs Though I would argue it is proof that points to it being damage even though the onus is on those who are pro cutting to prove it doesn’t do any damage and need to prove it is necessary to do to babies rather than consenting adults
