All Crime Is Personal

Man who circumcised sons found guilty:

Man On Trial, Charged With Circumcising Children:

One of my predecessors originally posted about this story here.

Now I’m of the opinion that male children should be circumcised. However it shouldn’t be done at home and it sure as hell shouldn’t be done with a utility knife.

Johnny Marlowe of Caldwell County, North Carolina didn’t care for hospitals (yet another Luddite) so he circumcised two of his 14 children at home with a utility knife. In one of the circumcisions his infant son bled for 11 hours.

Marlowe is an admitted polygamist who had his 14 children through his legal wife and another woman that lived with them. Not nly was he a child abuser but he was a spousal abuser as well beating his wife and denying her pre-natal care.

Marlowe is already serving a 1215 year sentence on kidnapping charges and was found guilty of abusing his sons. He’s looking at only a sentence of 120 days for the rogue circumcisions. That seems a little light to me.

Like I said I’m all for getting your boys circumcised and I highly recommend at. However leave it to the trained professionals especially those in the medical field as they are actually trained to perform these procedures.

Thanks to WickedWomyn for the tip.

    Boys should never be circumcised unless they ask for it as adults, and this guy should have his bits cut off all together for thinking he needed to mutilate his children himself.

  3. No, they should be circumcised at birth for hygiene issues and to help protect them from STDs especially HIV.

    Not to mention that ladies prefer a cut man.

      Boys don’t NEED to be circumcised for either reason. It’s perfectly possible and perfectly easy to clean an uncirmcised penis.

      Forskin serves at least three purposes–while removing it seems to serve at best two. (Minimizing ridicule and mabye lowering the risk of HIV if your child becomes a man slut who doesn’t use condoms)

      Additionally, the stats on HIV prevention deal with third world countries. In the West, using protected sex, the odds of an uncircumcised hetero male getting HIV are neglibible. A condom is a better method of prevention.

      Might as well cut off your daughter’s breasts to prevent her from getting breast cancer with that logic.

      1. Your logic is flawed. Breasts serve an important function. The foreskin is as about as useful as tits on a bull.

        And there are women who actually have their breasts removed to prevent breast cancer. I’m not saying I agree with that but it happens.

          Uh yes, the foreskin does serve a purpose. It has a huge number of nerve endings that you, as a cut male, probably don’t know you’re missing. And please don’t speak for all women – I like my men all natural, thank you. I can’t believe you spout so much disgust at child abusers but defend the routine mutilation of infants just because American society says it’s ok. BTW, most European men are not circumcised and no complaints here about hygiene!

          “The foreskin has three known functions: protective, sensory, and sexual.

          During infancy, the foreskin is attached to the glans and protects it from urine, feces, and abrasions from diapers. Throughout life, the foreskin keeps the glans soft and moist and protects it from trauma and injury. Without this protection, the glans becomes dry, calloused, and desensitized from exposure and chafing.

          Specialized nerve endings in the foreskin enhance sexual pleasure.”

      I’d much rather not mutilate an innocent child for purely selfish reasons. I know of several men who hate that they were circumcised as infants. They feel violated that someone made such a permanent decision about their body without them being able to have any say.

      If you’re too lazy to wash yourself or your child, then there is something seriously wrong with you. Hygiene shouldn’t ever be a reason. Being altered seems to give men the excuse to not wash themselves, based on comments I’ve seen during circumcision debates in the past. “I’d hate to have to wash my dick.” Ummmm, shouldn’t you be doing that anyway?

          The fear seems to be that if the boy is watching daddy pee or something *since letting your children follow you into the bathroom seems to be a big thing with parents* that he’ll notice they look different and wonder why, if one is cut and the other is not.

          Simple answer without having to try and explain overly complicated things, is that all boys look different down there. No two boys look exactly the same there any more than they look exactly the same in any other way, and being a little different is nothing bad.

          Girls need to be taught this, too. Due to circumcisions popularity in the past, women like JJ and LalalaLisa are so used to a mutilated penis that they can’t handle to look at a natural one, nor do they appreciate a natural. They want their men cosmetically altered or they aren’t good enough.

          @ Mystic Eye: Exactly. Circumcision is dangerous, no matter how common it is. If the skin isn’t removed perfectly it can cause a lot of problems when the child grows older. I’ve seen images of some of the more serious mistakes, and they aren’t pretty. Skin bridges are going to cause a man far more shame than being naturally intact.

          I also looked up circumcision in general in the past, to have more information during such debates, and the images I saw of what a circumcision looks like on a newborn is just horrifying. The tip of the tiny child’s penis completely red and covered in blood. It’s just horrible, and men and women alike are fully willing to do this to their children simply because the infant won’t remember the pain.

      It’s not as fun to be messing with a giant callus, which is what happens to the head of a man’s penis when he’s circumcised. As an infant it’s a giant open wound as the skin is not meant to be pulled away from the head yet, so there is scarring from that healing. Then as the boy gets older, it rubs against clothing all day long with no protection, which eventually leads to it getting callused.

      That’s why you see all the ads on US tv for sexual lubricants, thinner condoms, and “male enhancement” drugs.

      The circumcised penis requires artificial lubricant, is less sensitive and feels subjectively smaller to the female partner.

      Then of course there is the ever-so-popular side effects of bent penis and my personal favourite “hairy shaft” caused be removing too much skin. Nothin’ says sexy like a penis that is half covered in hairy scrotal skin. No wonder so many Americans remove the hair from their balls.

      That’s why you see all the ads on US tv for sexual lubricants, thinner condoms, and “male enhancement” drugs.

      The circumcised penis requires artificial lubricant, is less sensitive and feels subjectively smaller to the female partner.

      Then of course there is the ever-so-popular side effects of bent penis and my personal favourite “hairy shaft” caused be removing too much skin. Nothin’ says sexy like a penis that is half covered in hairy scrotal skin. No wonder so many Americans remove the hair from their balls.

    These comments are disgusting. The idea that we should cut off parts of infant’s bodies because, “He should look like daddy!” or “It’s gross!” boggles my mind. Parents do not own their children, and they should not be able to arbitrarily remove their body parts.

    Foreskin is hardly “useless”. It protects the glans penis and provides stimulation for men and women during intercourse.

    The argument that it protects males from AIDS may hold weight in South Africa, but in North America, the chances of a straight male getting AIDS from intercourse are extremely low. Education would serve that purpose a lot better.

    Also, it’s not that difficult to keep a baby clean, and teach young boys proper hygiene. Seriously, it’s not rocket science.

    Babies die and suffer complications all the time from that completely unnecessary procedure. That’s not even mentioning the pain.

After one day, it looked just fine. However my husband (not my son’s father) is not circumcised. To me it looks different, but not gross. It doesn’t feel any different however. I am currently pregnant, if we have a son we are pretty sure we will have him circumcised also, for religious reasons as well as hygienic ones.

      Only in America would a foreskin be removed for an infection. Even balanitis is now treatable.

      We don’t remove clitoral hoods to prevent UTIs in women -which are more common in women. No we tell women to use less perfumed soaps, pee after intercourse, don’t rush when you pee, take probiotics, etc.

      We don’t remove labia to prevent yeast infections in women. We tell women to eat less sugar, wear more breathable underwear, etc.

      Babies may not “remember” anything, but pain has been shown to effect their future reaction to stress and pain. And you can’t tell me a wound in a diaper doesn’t hurt. Older boys and men have more pain relievers available to them, are able to stay cleaner and have more antibiotics available. They can tolerate more blood loss. They are less at risks for having too much or too little foreskin removed.

      Why exactly is removing the clitoral hood in girls “female genital mutilation” and illegal? But ripping the foreskin off the glans and cutting it off, that’s just peachy?

    For the uninformed amongst us, circumcision (loss of the foreskin) makes the following changes:

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
    Neonatal circumcision is often done with inadequate pain relief. The child is subjected to intense pain for up to 15 minutes. This pain may leave a child with post-traumatic stress disorder, which is debilitating even for adults who can receive therapy for it. For a baby, it could lead to all sorts of hidden but significant psychological problems in later life.

    Sensitivity Loss
    When the foreskin is removed half the penile sensitivity is instantly lost, BUT at the same time the glans is exposed, making it SEEM more sensitive. After that, the glans keratinizes, making it very slowly get less sensitive – so slowly that it’s hard to notice a difference. This is not ‘healing’ – it will feel better, but only because it’s being so badly damaged that the nerves are being deadened. In the end, there’s a big difference (up to 75% sensitivity loss). Nerve endings don’t grow back, and a penis that has lost so many cannot possibly feel as sensitive as it did before. But like the proverbial frog cooking slowly on a hotplate and not noticing the difference in heat, a man who gets a circumcision might think that his penis feels the same, but he just doesn’t notice the difference because the process takes so long.

    Failure to Heal
    A circumcised penis can never ‘heal completely’. The penis has been permanently damaged.

    Further Damage
    After the glans is exposed, the ‘pearly penile papules’ around the corona (rim of the glans) tend to disappear. These structures are poorly understood, but may increase sexual pleasure for either the male or the female.

    Loss of Function
    The foreskin is an entire mechanism, including skin, muscle, mucous membrane and supporting structures. Cutting it off is not only excruciatingly painful, but it cripples the penis, destroying a large part of the penis, including the penis’s only moving part, making the whole organ incapable of ever functioning the way nature intended and making sexual intercourse that much more difficult.

    Difficulty Entering the Vagina
    A circumcised penis has no foreskin to help the man enter a woman’s vagina. When used correctly, the foreskin is pushed forward to facilitate comfortable entry – it unfolds as the penis pushes into the vagina. A man who has no foreskin cannot do this, so he must use lubricant.

    Need For More Lubrication
    With the foreskin gone, a couple needs to use lubrication during sex to keep the vagina moist. An uncircumcised man needs none – his foreskin forms a seal with the vaginal wall, reducing the need for lubrication and keeping the vaginal fluids where they belong.

    Increased Risk of Infection
    A circumcised penis is more likely to get infected than an intact penis.

    Erectile Dysfunction
    Those who have been circumcised suffer from sexual problems throughout the rest of their lives: they more easily develop erectile dysfunction as they get older. Some unfortunate victims find the loss of sensitivity so severe that they cannot orgasm even at a young age.

    No Advantage in Terms of Cleanliness
    Many people have been led to believe that circumcision is cleaner. But a circumcised penis is no cleaner than an intact penis. Both need to be gently rinsed clean while showering.

    Circumcision is a Woman’s Problem Too
    The circumcised penis usually gives less pleasure to the woman because the foreskin that gives the uncircumcised penis its gliding motion is no longer there. As a result of this, and as a result of the loss of sensitivity involved in a circumcised penis, the man has to push harder and more roughly to get the same feeling that an uncircumcised penis would give. All this, combined with the roughness and dryness of the keratinized glans, results in a less comfortable and less pleasurable experience for the woman. The circumcised penis can cause chafing and discomfort that may lead to vaginal infection. The foreskin is designed to prevent these problems. Many female partners of circumcised males have been led to assume that feminine dryness is a common female ailment when in fact it’s a male problem caused by the loss of the foreskin.

    For the uninformed amongst us, circumcision (loss of the foreskin) makes the following changes:

    Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
    Neonatal circumcision is often done with inadequate pain relief. The child is subjected to intense pain for up to 15 minutes. This pain may leave a child with post-traumatic stress disorder, which is debilitating even for adults who can receive therapy for it. For a baby, it could lead to all sorts of hidden but significant psychological problems in later life.

    Sensitivity Loss
    When the foreskin is removed half the penile sensitivity is instantly lost, BUT at the same time the glans is exposed, making it SEEM more sensitive. After that, the glans keratinizes, making it very slowly get less sensitive – so slowly that it’s hard to notice a difference. This is not ‘healing’ – it will feel better, but only because it’s being so badly damaged that the nerves are being deadened. In the end, there’s a big difference (up to 75% sensitivity loss). Nerve endings don’t grow back, and a penis that has lost so many cannot possibly feel as sensitive as it did before. But like the proverbial frog cooking slowly on a hotplate and not noticing the difference in heat, a man who gets a circumcision might think that his penis feels the same, but he just doesn’t notice the difference because the process takes so long.

    Failure to Heal
    A circumcised penis can never ‘heal completely’. The penis has been permanently damaged.

    Further Damage
    After the glans is exposed, the ‘pearly penile papules’ around the corona (rim of the glans) tend to disappear. These structures are poorly understood, but may increase sexual pleasure for either the male or the female.

    Loss of Function
    The foreskin is an entire mechanism, including skin, muscle, mucous membrane and supporting structures. Cutting it off is not only excruciatingly painful, but it cripples the penis, destroying a large part of the penis, including the penis’s only moving part, making the whole organ incapable of ever functioning the way nature intended and making sexual intercourse that much more difficult.

    Difficulty Entering the Vagina
    A circumcised penis has no foreskin to help the man enter a woman’s vagina. When used correctly, the foreskin is pushed forward to facilitate comfortable entry – it unfolds as the penis pushes into the vagina. A man who has no foreskin cannot do this, so he must use lubricant.

    Need For More Lubrication
    With the foreskin gone, a couple needs to use lubrication during sex to keep the vagina moist. An uncircumcised man needs none – his foreskin forms a seal with the vaginal wall, reducing the need for lubrication and keeping the vaginal fluids where they belong.

    Increased Risk of Infection
    A circumcised penis is more likely to get infected than an intact penis.

    Erectile Dysfunction
    Those who have been circumcised suffer from sexual problems throughout the rest of their lives: they more easily develop erectile dysfunction as they get older. Some unfortunate victims find the loss of sensitivity so severe that they cannot orgasm even at a young age.

    No Advantage in Terms of Cleanliness
    Many people have been led to believe that circumcision is cleaner. But a circumcised penis is no cleaner than an intact penis. Both need to be gently rinsed clean while showering.

    Circumcision is a Woman’s Problem Too
    The circumcised penis usually gives less pleasure to the woman because the foreskin that gives the uncircumcised penis its gliding motion is no longer there. As a result of this, and as a result of the loss of sensitivity involved in a circumcised penis, the man has to push harder and more roughly to get the same feeling that an uncircumcised penis would give. All this, combined with the roughness and dryness of the keratinized glans, results in a less comfortable and less pleasurable experience for the woman.

    Also, the idea that a natural foreskin is more prone to infection only makes sense if the parents pull back the foreskin in a misguided to clean it – something that many parents do. This causes damage to the penis and invites infection. It also causes phimosis in later life. A baby’s foreskin should never be pulled back. It detaches all by itself between the ages of 3 and 18. Before that, you’re supposed to clean it like you clean a finger.

  67. I have to admit I prefer a circumcised penis. Always have, and I’m in my fifties so I’ve seen a few. I also had my two sons circumcised when they were a week old, and they do not consider themselves mutilated. (They are men now, anyway, not children, so I trust their opinions)

    Earlier, Jessica made this comment:
    “America is the only country that even partakes in circumcision outside of religious reasons.”

    Untrue. For tens of thousands of years, the natives in this area known as South Africa have been circumcising their young men. They even have to go through an initiation school as soon as they hit puberty before they can have it done. They do not believe you are a man unless you are circumcised, and it has nothing to do with religion. In a place where there’s little clean water, they have learned that male circumcision actually helps fight against infections in both the male and female. For the whites, it is only in the last generation that they have stopped doing it. They also did it for health reasons, not religion. In the third world countries, without the benefits of great modern medicines that are employed in the US, it is still seen as necessary, once more, for health reasons.

      I don’t really care how some mutilated men who might conceivably have a bias define it. Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as “to cut up or alter radically so as to make imperfect”

      If you don’t think a penis has been cut up or altered radically, you simply don’t know what you’re talking about.

    Don’t know how I missed this whole debate when it started last year! Man, I feel deprived.

    But just let me throw in my 2 cents here … cut or uncut (and yes, I’ve known them both) I don’t find the male member good looking either way. Let’s face it folks, it’s a rather dorky looking appendage. It dangles around over these two hairy balls, it’s wrinkly, veiny and turns funny colors.

    Is it a useful appendage? Oh yeah! Good looking … not so much.
