Hogwash, hygeine... you learn to wash behind your ears, millions of european boys learn to wash their genitals properly.
Circumcision on males and females is a form of mutilation done against the will of the person it's being performed on.
I have no problem with circumcision when a person is mature enough to decide it for themselves, it's like any other type of plastic surgery or perceived surgical self-improvement.
But to do it ritualistically, and in unsanitary conditions in most parts of the world, is inhumane.
I was told when my son was born that it is not required but that the extra skin can harbor bacteria and cause illness in my son and possibly his sexual partner as an adult that is why I did it with my boys at the time of birth.
Honestly, It is defined as Personal Hygiene!
