Here is our list of notable circumcised men. Note that it does not seek to include all prominent circumcised, but only those who have won have become prominent in the Western democratic world, where circumcision is neither ubiquitous nor obligatory. The reason for this selectivity lies in the objectivity of the study of the psychological effects of circumcision. Popularity of individuals guarantees the reliability of their qualities. Yet, psychological qualities are most easily observed and objectified by comparison. Thus, the genital state of US President Donald Trump definitely makes sense for our research, while that of Turkish President Recep Erdogan is pointless due to the ubiquitous circumcision of children in Turkey.
In effect, the selectiveness excludes circumcising nations and operates as a popularity filter imposed on them. The resulting inequality is an inevitable artefact since we aim at comparison and not at listing all of the important circumcised persons. Only the background of naturals can objectify and evaluate the long-term psychological impact of paedocircumcision. Our List is not indicative of either quantity or quality of talents in nations with prevalent circumcision. Remember we do not intend to estimate national density of celebrities but to make evident the mental effects of circumcision.
We consider the enlisted data trustworthy because it is immediate and is delivered by reliable sources. It cites statements by the very persons in question or by their closest relatives or comes from birth or medical certificates. Therefore, the evidence about the genital state is not based on suppositions, rumours, press publications, photographs, or on alleged appearance post mortem. Still, there is no absolute guarantee of the correctness of the information we have. The birthdate of V. Horowitz, for instance, has been deliberately falsified by his father, which we have corrected.
Of course, Our List is far from being exhaustive but we are doing our best. Our list is still growing. Its last version is from May 19 2017.
For the time being Our List contains ‘only’ 1971 men distinguished enough for the state of their penises to become a matter of common knowledge. You can help us enrich our data collection and substantiate our concept by proposing new notabilities or details for the User-Created List of Notable Circumcised.
By necessity, the biographic notes are concise and hence incomplete and biased but appraising the significance of one’s deeds is always a task too difficult. If you find any inaccurate or irrelevant information on our list of famous circumcised, please, contact us and we will consider revising it. Birthplaces and their territorial belonging are given as they were at the time when the persons were born.
And let the roll not dishearten naturals. If it still does, they could find some consolation here or they might search through it for disreputable characters.
