The amount of people running to help and showing support now is beautiful. One of my best mates' dad was involved in the Clutha last year and it was the same then. As sad as these tragedies are, really shows what makes this city great.

Fourth Jewish baby this year treated for herpes after controversial Orthodox circumsicion method | Daily Mail Online

I'm aware of this practice, but why this not illegal yet (circumcision that is, not the Jewish practice, but obviously that as well)

There's no reason for circumcision to be illegal. I just talked to a doctor two weeks ago who said circumcision is beneficial for one's partner, and it decreases your chances of contracting HIV.

I seem to remember that the benefits for preventing STDs are comparable to the danger of serious complications from the procedure. Which is to say, almost nil.

Don't see why it shouldn't be illegal when carried out those who can't consent

As far as I know, that second bit is true but it's so insignificant. HIV is a very, very difficult virus to contract anyway, some estimates reckon it's as low as 0.06% per contact. So it's hardly a convincing argument when we also consider that we have condoms.

No reason to do it unless it's for shit like phimosis imo.

We also bathe our babies for health's sake, despite their lack of consent.
