Is it reasonable to allow a group of 6 people, 4 jewish and 2 muslim, to publish scientific articles singing the praises of circumcision when they are all subject to strong religious motivations to promote genital mutilation?
Why is such an obviously biased piece of propaganda allowed to be published in the supposedly serious scientific press?
How come there are no authors from cultures which do not practice ritual religious genital mutilation?

"Thirty-eight physicians from Europe have written a paper alleging that “cultural bias” was behind the pro-circumcision stance of the American Academy of Pediatrics."

The last few years have proven the scientific publishing apparatus to be largely fraudulent when any sort of conflicts in interest are involved. The fake HCQ papers in the Lancet alone are enough to not to care what these rags deem fit to publish.

Yes. Banning publications based on authors' religion is extremely unreasonable. Now go back.

>> No.15772001

No it isn't. Failing to eliminate sources of biased information is whats unreasonable. Muslims and jews shouldn't be allowed to use the scientific press to promote their primitive third world genital mutilation rituals.

If your way to test the bias of a publication is going after the authors' religions/ethnicities, then you are a crappy reviewer. Attack the content or go back to /pol/.

The science journals are all propaganda just like every other media source is. Who owns the journals? Who owns the mainstream media?

There's now a push for it to reduce spread of HPV. I'm not shitting you, the excuse is that it reduces the amount of surface area to get infected. There's also a statement that ~90% of men and ~80% of men have had at least one strain within a certain age set, but there's no formal testing of HPV for men at all.

if they really wanted to do that they would advise against casual sex, prosecute prostitution, ban birth control drugs and make abortion illegal. those four steps would do far more to stop HPV than genital mutilation does. we already have genital mutilation and HPV thriving together side by side, so genital mutilation clearly does not stop the spread of HPV

Thats a dumb argument, it only means that a different part of the dick will get infected.

Pretty much. Plus, it's been shown that it's caught completely asymptomatic even by skin to skin sexual contact and spreads over everything, even nuts. It would be like cutting off your finger because of a wart, but leaving the rest of the hand that still has warts.

>About half of the European physicians are from Scandinavian countries, where several political parties have stated their opposition to circumcision as a form of “child abuse,” or unwanted phenomenon of immigration by Muslims.
Their response is "yeah? well what about that time you-"
