Circumcision | Violence Against Nature?
AwN | Accord with Nature is based on the priciple of understanding what is and is not in Accord with Nature. I don't always make the claim that what is natural is good and what is unnatural is bad. While I personally feel like this is often enough the case that the Accord with Nature project is of high value, it's important to realize that what I present to you is most often a declaration of the natural. While I have hopes that we can adopt a more natural life for so many reasons, it is important for the natural minded to remember that humans first strayed from nature so as to solve problems with a completely natural lifestyle.
In this circumstance we look at male circumcision. How can their be any debate as to whether male circumcision is in Accord with Nature or not? There are all sorts of arguments as to why parents or religions might want to brutalize children by removing a piece of their sexual organ, but there is no doubt that we are born the way we are intended to stay. Nature has given us extremely little if not nothing that is anything less than helpful. I am not one to tell people how to live their lives, but this article raises the point for those who do try to run the lives of others (a very fine line here). Why isn't male circumcision considered a human rights abuse? I can say I'm pretty sure it isn't natural, and does seem quite brutal to cut a piece off a child for highly questionable reasons.
