It's true, its very unhygienic if u are a man and not circumcised (Buuryaqab).
Most kids get it within the first month they are born, so u can't say it's hurting the baby, since they wont remember the pain.
LoL I don't know how true its, but Somali girls won't marry u if u aren't circumcised.
If an intact male regularly bathes there will be no problem. When cleaning a baby boy's penis all that is needed is to clean the outside. In infancy and through childhood until puberty, and sometimes past it the prepuce is fused to the glans of the child. No attempt should be made to pull back the prepuce to clean the inside of the organ. The prepuce retracts on its own after time. Some doctors in North America who are ignorant of the intact male organ forcibly pull back the prepuce of the baby during well-baby visits. These doctors themselves might have been mutilated as infants. Great harm, pain and bleeding can result from prematurely pulling back the prepuce. There have been cases where doctors having damaged the baby's organ, suggested mutilation as a solution to this iatrogenic complication. Smegma (baaro
is shed skin cells, skin oils and moisture. It is found in males and females. The shed skin cells do not fall away as easily as elsewhere in the body. The prepuce is fused to the glans similar to a fingernail on its nail bed). The dead skin cells will go through the preputial orifice without any manipulation while the prepuce hasn't separated from the glans. Parents are told by doctors to clean the prepuce as one would clean a finger (only the outer skin). Once the prepuce has been separated from the glans, children can be taught to pull back the prepuce when urinating, and to clean the glans with warm water when bathing.
Some males are mutilated the same day that they were born, others a week later, still others some time down the line for whatever reason. For those baby boys who are mutilated the same day that they were born, this is a compounding of the trauma of birth that they have experienced. By saying "they won't remember the pain" you acknowledge the hurting of the baby. One only needs to watch a neonatal genital mutilation video where no anesthesia or pain relief is used on the newborn to understand the horrific trauma that is visited upon these tiny babies. As for the babies not remembering the pain, first, there are studies showing maternal bonding and nursing is adversely affected.
The baby loses trust in the mother especially. Second, there were cases where babies' temperaments changed such as crying intensity and duration well over a year after the mutilation. There have also been cases where babies suddenly started staring into space and ignoring their parents after the mutilation. This is a sign of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
. The brain might bury the trauma deep in the subconscious to protect the baby from the memory. So, consciously the baby might not remember, but the subconscious which affects the baby's personality and behavior remembers. The site of the wound remembers as well. The glans will become rough to protect itself from the elements, chafing of clothing, etc. If you read about the function of the prepuce you will appreciate the Sublimity of the Work of the Masterful Engineer who constructed this great part. The prepuce is not just skin. The babies remember but cannot communicate this to their parents. The baby is small and dependent on his parents, but he is a human being with a soul and feelings.
The estimates of Somali people in Somalia who have undergone male or female genital mutilation is near universal with close to a hundred percent. According to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Somalia leads the world in FGM per capita percentage with an estimated 98 percent of females between the ages of 15 and 49 mutilated. I think you may be right in that Somali women will not marry an intact man and vice versa.
