Frankly, collierctr ... any writer who's written a sex scene involving a character probably knows whether he's circumcised, whether her drapes match her carpet (or in the case of certain girls, are smooth hardwood floors), how well endowed he is, whether she's petite or bodacious, if she has a gag reflex, whether he's a believer in oral reciprocity, she's a fan of spelunking, and a host of other characteristics someone writing orthodox Trek fiction never considers.
I genuinely don't get this: As long as I'm not going to be in the stall with you, neither of us is peering over the urinal divider, and no one is ogling, why should I care what sex or gender you are when using a public bathroom?

while any possible infections could be treated and cured, etc, why go through the hassle of constantly risking it and have to go repeatedly rather than prevent the infection in the first place?

some of the anatomical features can contain bacteria, etc....circumcision removes those features and a home for said bacteria. (that's the cleanest way to say that...PM me if more clarification is needed)
