CLASS ACTION ID
Circumcision is sexual abuse, torture and mutilation
Class Action Started By:
Any man that was circumcised is due reparations for the lost sexual functioning he inevitably suffered since circumcision removes the most sensitive part of the penis.
1 million infant boys are sexually tortured and mutilated each year in the U.S. This is a violation of their human rights.

I feel violated by having to witness the circumcision crime
Even though I have not been attacked with a knife on my penis when I was a helpless child, I am feeling violated by the fact that this injustice and brutal rape of little boys in the U.S. and children across this world is still being allowed and ignored by the government and the law makers. Watching a circumcision on a video and on photos made me very angry and sick in my stomach. It made me want to chop those bastards’ hands off. I propose that anybody who sticks knives into children’s genitals shall be punished with prison for life if they don’t drop their knives and torture clamps in spite of this global awakening so this brutal form of slavery will come to an end now.
I lost full sexual satisfaction I would have otherwise been able to obtain due to a circumcision forced upon me as an infant.
I was genitally mutilated without any medical need or consent. As an adoptee, I didn't even have parents to consent on my behalf!
I was born at Rochester General Hospital (1600 Portland Ave, Rochester, NY) in 1966.
Not a day goes by without me seeing the damage done to my person. I have spent thousands of dollars and countless days of deep depression due to my circumcision.
It has caused many problems with establishing trust with others, as well as prevented me from leading a normal sex life. I remain a single man at almost 42 years old with more baggage than anyone care to deal with... all thanks to a "little snip."
I'd like to harm the people that caused me the pain and suffering I've endured for so long. If I can't have my 'original equipment' back, I should at least be comfortable with compesation and the knowledge that EVERY surgon that commits this unjust procedure on any unconcenting person will pay the price.
I was circumcised as a baby and it has caused me lifelong pain.
Loss of a protective body part has caused me pain for over 30 years.
I am not circumcised
I am not circumcised but I don't like when the boys are circumcised I do feel sorry for them.
I was sexually mutilated through circumcision.
Doctors have an ethical requirement to do no harm. My most sensitive organ was modified without my consent at a very young age to become one of my least sensitive organs. I now attend a high school in which all of my friends are uncircumcised and it has caused me extreme emotional trauma and further mutilation (although to success ) of my genitals in attempt to reverse the subtraction and damage.
I was circumcised without my consent
I lost the full sexual satisfaction I would have otherwise been able to obtain due to my circumcision as an infant boy under age one. Part of my male anatomy was removed without my lawful consent. My body was violated without my consent. I am age 44 and umarried without children. This circumcision has impaired my social life thus and has made me unable to reproduce.
Part of My Manhood was Stolen from Me as an infant.
I was circumcised as an infant, at an age where I was unable to speak for myself. There was no reason to do it, either. I guess my parents believed in the old myth that it makes it cleaner. But at what cost? It bothers me to know that I do not have an intact penis. I actually think about it quite often. As a result of this, I am brutally offended and traumatized whenever I see male genital integrity violated in the media. I know that sex for me will never be as satisfying as it would be for an uncircumcised man. I also know that sex will never be as satisfying for my partners either, because the foreskin serves as a gliding mechanism that makes sex better for women. I wish I could have mine back, but sadly that's impossible. It's gone, and I'm left to feel like a fraction of a man for the rest of my life.
Physical and psychological damage due to a botched (and completely unnecessary) circumcision.
The doctor who circumcised me has been described by other doctors as "incompetent". I knew as a 3 or 4 year old that my penis did not look like those of my brothers. I have had
fine touch sensitivity testing on my penis and there was less sensitivity than those of most circumcised men.
Even if the circumcision had been done
properly, knowing what I now know about
foreskin and circumcision, I would never have consented to a circumcision
without an absolute medical emergency.
The FGM law is unconstitutional, it is based on gender discrimination. see: www.mgmbill.org
Female genital cutting on minors is illeagal in the USA, but male genital cutting on minors is perfectly legal.
Why aren't all infants afforded the same protection under the law against unnecessary forced genital cutting?
programmed for violence.
I will always be an easy mark for the jailers of the world. why? because my first sexual experience was bloody, violent and shaming. yet the society i live in requires that i bury the memory of this experience deep, or else. circumcision is the soul-killing experience and the penitentiaries of this country are filled with sweet baby boys who were betrayed and humiliated by those who should have known the consequences. no wonder we live in such a violent country. please e-mail or phone. 707 293-0863. dr. ragan of oak ridge hospital in tennessee is long gone but i struggle to keep up the will to live every single day.
I'm missing highly sensitive erogenous tissue.
Dr. Robert Landgraff circumcised me for no reason in Niles, Michigan in 1962. I was healthy and normal and he amputated a valuable body part. Sex feels dull as a result.
I hold culpable Dr. Landgraf and any doctor who was in a position to formulate a sane policy statement that should have discouraged warrantless surgery on unconsenting minors, and also the insurance company who paid for a destructive amputation.
Circumcised without anybody's consent
Nobody consented to my circumcision, my brother's or my 2 cousins. We were all born before the 1973 court decision. My uncle and aunt specifically told the doctor not to circumcise my cousins and they were circumcised anyway. My uncle still gets very angry about this if it is mentioned. The same doctor delivered my brother and me so I have no doubt there was no consent given

I was a victim of genital mutilation
I was circumcised without my consent as an infant. I have been physically and emotionally damaged because of this. On the physical level, I have lost an important part of my sexual response and sexual sensation. I will never be able to feel the complete and normal feeling of sex because someone removed an organ critical to that normal experience. On an emotional level, I feel violated—I feel raped. Whenever I look at my penis I am again reminded of the violence forced upon me.
i was genitally mutilated without any form of consent and i feel as though i will be psychologically damaged for the rest of my life.
i was genitally mutilated without any form of medical need nor did i offer any form of consent. when i found out this was done to me a couple of years ago i was devastated. i felt (and still feel) as though i don't own a single thing in this world because the one thing that i thought i could always consider mine (my body) was mutilated for absolutely no reason... and my opinion on the matter was never considered.
like too many other people in the world i was never asked or even informed what was going to be done to me. i feel as though this is a very obvious violation of human rights but nobody seems to care, as if my thoughts/ideas don't matter in any way even though my body is the one in question (for the surgery that is).
i'm reminded every single day that my body in no way belongs to be, i believe i should get some sort of compensation for that. how can such a terrible and barbaric practice continue in the US? how can so many people be forced into cosmetic surgery and seem to not be effected by it in any way? i'm unable to answer these questions because people really should be bothered by this and the government should have taken action on this terrible thing many years ago.
An unnecessary, life-altering elective procedure was done to me shortly after birth that has substantially reduced the natural functioning of my reproductive organ. I did not nor was I able to consent to this procedure and the nature of its impact exceed
Shortly after I was born in 1968, I was circumcised. This action, based on evidence of human physiology gleaned from research, substantially reduced the sensitivity and responsiveness of my reproductive organs and rendered important parts of their functioning inoperative, resulting in a substantial diminshment of my quality of life and having had negative psychological effects that were entirely avoidable.
The action was done without my consent and absent medical necessity. Since it resulted in permanent disfiguring and functional impairment of an important part of my body, its execution exceeded the rights of my parents to mandate the process, lawful though it was at the time and remains so, and requested nonetheless in good faith by them.
The actual agent of action, the hospital in question (_____), however, undertook this procedure without disclosing the nature and impact of this procedure to my parents. In addition, its behavior with regard to the procedure was reckless, also with a state of negligent indifference being present, together constituting an action and that is, absent redress in criminal courts, nonetheless subject to redress in a civil one.
I claim damages of $10 million for pain and suffering compensation due to the injuries herein described.
