Celebrities against circumcision are mostly celebrities who wish their parents didn't get them circumcised. Circumcision is a topic of debate, should we or shouldn't we?

He sought treatment at an underground "clap-shack" which cured him until the next random he slept with. This time, the quack doctor Capra consulted suggested a radical remedy: adult circumcision. "The son of a bitch cut everything off!" Capra later wailed. The operation left Capra hunched over in agony, bleeding into a rag -- and sexually crippled for the rest of his life.
