Circumcised is the participle of the verb to circumcise. It functions as an adjective applied to the incomplete penis and to males with an incomplete penis, which has had an essential, functional part (the foreskin) excised, resulting in a condition of male genital mutilation (MGM). Circumcised males experience physical and psychic trauma and have a life-long loss of various physiological functions. Most experience behavioral changes.
Circumcised is a Biblical term. It occurs 43 times in the Bible. The first occurrence is in Genesis 17:10. It also is used as a noun to refer to the Hebrews.
Family Court Judge Sir James Munby ruled in the case of B & G that excision of the functional foreskin of the penis constituted "significant harm".
