Pretty off topic, but anyway. Apart from the whole procedure itself, do you know what bugs me? Calling it a circumcision. Yes, it is medically accurate, but it makes it sound less horrifying than I find it.
I wish it was called a foreskin amputation. Or how about describing in medical terms as a neural and dermal amputation of the distal penis? That sounds as scary as I find it. For some reason, calling it circumcision seems to minimise it's impact.

There is only one part of the body that has no function in the modern human, and that is the appendix. It is not visible in day to day life, and if it gets infected and prompt medical treatment is not sought or available, the infection can actually end up killing someone pretty quickly. However, only one group of people have their appendix removed "just in case" and they are those going to work in Antarctica. It is very hard to evacuate out of Antarctica at certain times of the year, hence the extreme step.
Every other body part, including the foreskin and other parts commonly removed (tonsils for example), most definitely have a function.
