The Bizarre American History of Circumcision
Find out how a baby born today can still be harmed from America’s past of prudish morality, racism, gullibility, scare tactics, and greed that reaches back over 100 years ! It’s the history of circumcision in America !
1886: Dr. J.H. Kellogg, the inventor of corn flakes, advocated for circumcision to remove the sensitive foreskin from boys as a remedy for masturbation. He sadistically claimed by not using anesthesia the operation would make a good punishment for boys who masturbate.
1901: In the American Practitioner and News, Dr. Earnest G. Marks MD wrote, “An advantage of circumcision is the lessened liability to masturbation. A foreskin leads the child to touch it to produce pleasurable sensations from the extremely sensitive foreskin leading to masturbation”
1914: Dr. Abraham Wolbarst wrote Universal Circumcision as a Sanitary Measure, in the Journal of the American Medical Association, “It is a well known fact that the foreskin is a frequent factor in masturbation, not alone in children but in adults as well…Circumcision has become recognized as a most effective remedy.”
1896 Dr. R.N. Tooker wrote a popular book, All About The Baby, which advised mothers that circumcision of baby boys was “advisable in most cases.” He recommended the operation mainly for preventing “the vile habit of masturbation.”
1894: Dr. Peter C. Remondino in the National Popular Review advocated; “the wholesale circumcision of the Negro race is an efficient remedy in preventing their predisposition to discriminate raping so inherent in that [Negro] race.”
1920: Shocked by the influx of immigrants from Southern & Eastern Europe, white upper class Americans have a crisis of cultural identity. They seek circumcision as a means of distinguishing themselves from poor immigrants that they perceived to be racially inferior, dirty, vulgar, & with disease carrying uncut penises. Circumcision elevated to a status symbol. D.L. Gollaher, (Phd, Harvard University), JOURNAL OF SOCIAL HISTORY, Volume 28, Number 1: Pages 5 – 36
1947: Dr. Eugene Hand of the American Medical Association, said in Newsweek, ”where the promiscuous and uncircumcised Negro had an incidence of venereal infection of “almost 100%,… for the widely educated Jew, circumcised at birth, the venereal disease rate has remained the same or decreased.”
1870: The renowned Dr. Lewis A. Sayre of NYC’s Bellevue Hospital claimed to cure a boy’s paralyzed legs with circumcision. He also claimed to cure epilepsy, mental disorders, hip-joint pain, & hernias with circumcision. “Genital irritations” & masturbation were deemed to be the cause of these issues. Sayre was a leading figure in the popularization of circumcision in America. He was later elected to president of the American Medical Association.
1893: In the Journal of the American Medical Association, Dr. J. A.Hofheimer claimed circumcision cured infant constipation. He then recommended circumcising babies before digestive issues appeared. “An early operation,” he wrote, “will relieve the child of a great source of irritation, and indirectly improve nutrition, changing a fretful, puny baby into a thriving, happy infant.”
1894: Dr. B. Merrill Ricketts wrote in the New York Medical Journal that he performed over 250 circumcisions to “cure” diseases such as hip-joint disease, tuberculosis, hernia, general nervousness, impotence, convulsions, and epilepsy.
1912: Dr. Frank G. Lydston wrote, “Parents who do not have an early circumcision performed on their boys are almost criminally negligent.”
We hope you now understand:
- That America has a bizarre history with circumcision and genital cutting
- The reasoning used in the past is as bizarre as that used today
- The underlying motives were prudish sexual repression, racism, and greed
- Throughout history promoters used scare tactics and fake claims to influence Americans to become a circumcising culture
- Promoters used scare tactics to exploit people’s vulnerability
- It will take a strong educational effort to overcome American’s ingrained and misguided beliefs about circumcision
Brilliant research & excellent presentation about a long-term mind-control operation causing great harm to mankind – just like what is happening now with the hoax scamdemic. How can you be smart enough to see circumcision is rooted in psychopathic deception and then be so stupid as to support the nonsense that humanity is responsible for bad weather — “…our part in the battle against climate change.”
Here‘s a thought. When babies are born, whether they be male or female, require parents to sign a „yes“ or „no“ form. Such a procedure might bring attention to the inherent absurdity in the circumcision practice
Wonder how many of these mass killers are circumcised ?

Wow, I am speechless. Fascinating information.
Remondino’s book, History of Circumcision page 207/208 describes skin grafts from baby foreskin and advocates for a tissue bank….it was written in 1891. All of their evil tactics were designed to sell MGM.
Does anyone know the history of skin care and circumcision? I have tried to search the issue but haven’t found anything meaningful that didn’t relate to Oprah. When did the skin care industry start using it in their products? How did that usage change, increase, decrease, etc. over the years?
