Frequently Asked Questions about NOHARMM & Circumcision
Lengthy but worthwhile scholarly articles on the anti-sexual origins and history of human genital mutilation are found in James DeMeo's The Geography of Genital Mutilation, James W. Prescott's Genital Pain vs. Genital Pleasure, and Karen Ericksen Paige's The Ritual of Circumcision. Many people believe that circumcision began with the Jews as a hygienic ritual. This is not correct. This belief results from us projecting a 20th Century rationale (hygiene) onto an ancient sacrificial blood ritual.
During the prudish Victorian era, doctors in Britain (and colonies) and the USA adopted circumcision and other genital mutilations to control sexual behaviour in boys and girls, and to prevent STDs in adult men and women. Circumcision, clitoridectomy and hysterectomy were prescribed in the false belief that they could prevent or to cure masturbation, tuberculosis, mental illness, and an array of other unlikely diseases.
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the sleeve of skin and mucosal tissue that normally covers the glans (head) of the penis. This double layer, sometimes called the prepuce, is more commonly known as the foreskin. Parents are encouraged to read as much as possible about circumcision. They should make themselves aware of the complexities of the circumcision procedure itself. Speak to your doctor about the step-by-step procedure.

[13,14] Most circumcisions are performed without anaesthetic, because there are risks involved with using anaesthetics on babies. Sometimes local injections are used, but this does not eliminate pain. Most babies will show signs of pain during the procedure and in the week or ten days following circumcision.
Male Circumcision and HIV: (F)requently (A)sked (Q)uestions
No. However, we believe that circumcision is a special case in surgical treatments as it entails a cosmetic and sexual change in the body that cannot be reversed. Our intent is to discuss the wisdom of promoting circumcision inappropriately or unethically to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS. We oppose circumcision where informed consent is unavailable or not possible and where said consent fails to address the issue of damage or injury to the penis and loss of sexual function and sensation.

After WWII, a number of people independently started to work on intelligent machines. The English mathematician Alan Turing may have been the first. He gave a lecture on it in 1947. He also may have been the first to decide that AI was best researched by programming computers rather than by building machines. By the late 1950s, there were many researchers on AI, and most of them were basing their work on programming computers.
