First and foremost, this is not a thread to discuss circumcision under any context, there are more than enough of those threads.
I would like to know how people define "routine" when it comes to circumcision. I have always defined it as when an infant or child is circumcised in the absence of any pressing medical need. So, if an infant or child is circ'd because of any alleged health benefits, to minimise infection risks, religious/cultural reasons, aesthetic reasons or to 'fit in' would all be classified as "routine".
The Australian Oxford Dictionary defines "routine" when used as an adjective as
1. performed as part of a routine
2. of a customary or standard kind
In the context of circumcision, I would then argue that, as stated above, routine infant circ is when it is undertaken in the absence of any pressing medical need.
Again - this is NOT a thread to discuss the pros and cons of circ, merely the definition of 'routine' when applied to infant circ.
