Its just been re-highlighted to me, the narcissism thats involved in the circumcision of children. We have a talentless TV & Radio personality here in Australia, who creates outrageous stunts to entertain, because he's basicly just talentless narcissist. Several Years ago he had his son circumcised, and he bought his son's foreskin into the radio studio to shock his fellow disc jockey's and his audience, making fun of his son's foreskin.
I mean......... How Narcissistic is that, a complete lack of empathy for his son, and what his son may feel about this radio stunt one day if he finds out? The stunt It was all about him and his needs, getting fame, noteriety at his son's expense. Obviously the decision to circumcise, was a narcissistic one, because in Australia the RACP Australia's authority on circumcision of children, recommends against the procedure less than 10% of newborns are circumcised, so he did it because "he" wanted his son circumcised. Narcissism pure and simple, putting his own interests ahead of his sons, with no empathy for what his son might have wanted, and also growing up circumcised, in a country where most of the boys are left intact. Pure Narcissism.
This is also another reason why circumcision still happens, the Narcissism of the parents, putting their own needs ahead of their childs. If they were really empathic & enlightened parents they would investigate not only what circumcision is/was, but also its harms, and the role and function of the foreskin which is lost to circumcision. Given the male foreskin has a functional role in male sexuality, to remove this from your son, because its your preference is just pure Narcissism.
