Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

Wikipedia reference-linkGlans
Quote:
The glans ( plural "glandes"; from the Latin word for "acorn") is a vascular structure located at the tip of the penis in male mammals or a homologous genital structure of the clitoris in female mammals.

The exterior structure of the glans consists of mucous membrane, which is usually covered by foreskin or clitoral hood in naturally developed genitalia. This covering, called the prepuce, is normally retractable in adulthood.

For a heated discussion on the topic please see: Circumcision: right or wrong?

For information where such procedures can be legally performed in Switzerland please see: Circumcision in Switzerland [info ONLY please]

Note: This poll is about the removal of the prepuce and the prepuce only.

Definitions:
Adult: Please open another poll
Medical reason: Good medical practice. Please open another poll what good medical practice covers
No question asked: As long as no other provision in the Criminal Code are violated. Please open another poll what should be in the Criminal Code

What is your personal experience? Please open another poll.

Re: Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

Poll is up.
You cannot post thread and poll at once. So it takes some time.

Definitions:
Adult: Please open another poll
Medical reason: Good medical practice. Please open another poll what good medical practice covers
No question asked: As long as no other provision in the Criminal Code are violated. Please open another poll what should be in the Criminal Code

I do not know if there is a sound medical reason for females.

Re: Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

Yet another ill thought-out poll.

Define medical reasons. Some would argue that doing it for all male children would prevent a few medical problems occurring in future.

Isn't that why it's so prevalent in the U.S. Due to misinformed parents?

And what the hell does "Allow it for adults, no questions asked" mean.

Does that mean when a girl gets to adulthood, her parents can forcibly get it done on her, no questions asked?

Re: Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

Perfect, first one Tom rushes you to the poll then the next Tom comes up with interpretation details.
And finally I get a groan from the one of the Tom's. Surprisingly not the usual one.

Re: Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

Surely a more useful better poll would be:
  • Yes I've been circumcised as a child and am happy with my parents, religious leader, witch doctor making that decision for me.
  • Yes I've been circumcised as a child and am not happy with my parents, religious leader, witch doctor making that decision for me.
  • No, I haven't been circumcised.
  • No, I haven't been circumcised and wish I had been as a child.

Re: Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

My suggestion for a poll would be:
  • Didn't we argue this one to death last year?
  • and the year before that?
  • and the year before that?
  • and the year before that?
  • and the year before that?
  • Doesn't anyone fancy another argument about Israel and Palestine?
  • or dogs running free in the park?
  • or smoking on train platforms?

Re: Poll: Surgical removal of the prepuce covering the glans.

On the other hand, I had strictly no idea that you could use the words glans or prepuce for girls!

I learned something new today!
