Here is our list of notable circumcised men. Note that it does not cover all prominent circumcised. The list intends to include only those of them who have gained distinction in the environment of the western world where circumcision is not a prevalent practice. The reason for that selectiveness is that the psychological effects of circumcision we are interested in can be traced and objectified only comparatively.
In effect the selectiveness operates as a popularity filter imposed on circumcising nations. This inequality, however, is an inevitable artefact since we aim at comparison and not at listing of all important circumcised persons. Only the background of naturals can objectify and evaluate the long-term psychological impact of circumcision. Our List is not indicative of 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, this does not guarantee that the information given to our sources has been accurate. The birthdate of V. Horowitz, for instance, was 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 27th June 2015.
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 among naturals. 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.
