I am staying out of this ridiculous argument, but as a circumcised male, who has been circumcised his entire life, didn't feel a thing as it was done at my birth, and happens to know via education that whether it actually has any health benefit that it is done for purported health benefit I resent being told I am mutilated. Do we call men with piercings mutilated?
You don't like it, don't like it. Maybe you are unused to seeing circumcised penises. I am not. A preference or unfamiliarity with something does not give someone the right to slap a derogatory description on people. A preference to heterosexuality and unfamiliarity with homosexuality gets us called faggots, poofters, fudgepackers, fruit loops, and a host of other things. They show intolerance. Are they ok too because it's a "preference"? I didn't ask to be circumcised, nor am I asking not to be. I am asking to be respected whether I have been circumcised or not. I don't go around calling uncircumsised men "doggy dick".
