Here in the Philippines.. Circumcision of men is very sensitive topic and being circumcised here is a culture of our ancestors. Meaning if you are a filipino and your adult men and uncircumcised, you better not tell other people if tell it to them they will teased and joke you as a "Supot" (term for uncircumcised men at philippines). and You must better hide being uncircumcised. Here also you being circumcised men is also question before taking a job because they require a "Medical Exam" before you apply.. How about the uncircumcised men here??? Meaning they will lack their self-confidence because in taking Medical Exam. he must go to a Hospital for the report every little thing in the body is inspected from head to toe and they must be naked when the doctor is inspecting... there's a lot of possiblities that an uncircumcised men will fail the Medical exam meaning he can't work in that company... he just get a low or street jobs.. So what do you think about this thing?? How about in your own country?? is there's any discrimination about this??

My late husband & my current husband were not circumsized. They are certainly not descriminated against, & I don't care about that. It's a debatable issue here as to whether circumsion is needed for health reasons or not. It is disgusting that uncircumsized men in the Philippines are discriminated against. Maybe you should start a supoprt group & campaign to the Government.

Yes. I an article from other site. There at Australia somewhere 1970s and 1980s circumcision in being discourage by the pediatricians. But in our case filipinos circumcision as i said is like a Culture. Boys here may get the old fashion way of circumcision called "de puk-pok" and the modern circumcision done by the pediatricians.
