This is sure to ruffle a few feathers among religious types, but I think it's absolutely the right decision from the German courts:
There will doubtless be complaints from those parts of the muslim and jewish communities that have not yet joined the 21st century, and possibly even accusations of anti-semitism. I really hope, however, that the German authorities have the courage of their convictions.
Some -- well, most, I suppose -- boys do actually want to grow up into men, and to deny them the choice of whether to keep everything as Nature intended (you know, so they can actually enjoy a wank or a shag) is just barbaric.
And less with the bogus health and hygiene arguments. It might have made sense in the desert in Biblical times, but not in modern Europe. A foreskin is self-cleansing if you drink enough. And if you don't want to contribute to the spread of AIDS -- in fact, every time you ever have sex at all unless you plan to get pregnant -- you should be wearing a condom.
