This morning I woke up, trudged around, walked into a wall, had a pee, had breakfast etc etc, all that crap we do in the mornings. I then came through here to my little dark cave and Richard from Cape Town News had left me a little comment that included the word “circumcision”, this really is a word that gets me going.
Everyday thousands of new parents around the world are essentially torturing their newborn baby boys and getting the tips of their penises cut off. Most people don’t say torture when it comes to this but if you’ve ever seen it done that’s what it looks like. A baby in a little plastic chair with their arms and legs strapped in screaming bloody murder because some masochistic bitch/bastard has just cut the tip of their cock off. I really don’t believe that’s right, in my mind, there should be just as much uproar over this that there is over female circumcision but they’ve told people some bullshit reasons why they should get their baby’s circumcised and I hate to say it, it’s mostly the women that lap this up. So often you see new parents in conflict over this because the father says no way and mommy is saying yes we must. I don’t quite see why mommy should have a say considering she doesn’t have a ding a ling.
The fact of the matter is that no matter how many fucking reasons you come up with to justify it to yourself (“It’s more hygienic” etc etc) you are torturing your child all because of a choice you make for it. An irreversible choice. To this I say, how dare you. How dare you mutilate another human beings body because you decide to.
Let your child grow up intact and if they choose to do it themselves later in life then they have that choice!
All natural penises look better anyway, I’m sorry but circumcised penises look weird as hell.
If you would like more information on why you’re a dickhead and why all those reasons you’ve come to believe are bullshit, please click this page, it is a wonderful organisation against infant circumcision and the page linked to above is an entire page with the myths and facts about circumcision including:
Myth #9: Circumcision prevents AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
Fact: Some studies show that circumcision has a slight preventive effect for AIDS and some STDs; however, other studies show an insignificant or opposite effect, especially for chlamydia. The bottom line: sexual practices have a much greater effect on the chance of becoming infected than circumcision status. If someone acts on the misconception that circumcision alone will protect them, they are taking unwise chances.
So no one dare bring up that prevents HIV study bullshit. If you require to have a piece of skin removed for the 0.0001% or whatever the fuck number chance it is to prevent AIDS and STDs…well…condoms, heard of them? Or perhaps not fucking that chick you met like 5 minutes ago without protection? Just a thought. Read the fucking site and educate yourself before you chop off your child’s body parts.
*UPDATE* Since I write these posts in a specific fashion i.e. a wild ranting fashion, here is a link to B’s Universe where he has some calmer and very well written posts on circumcision and why it’s crap. I also really like his I’m too tired for sex post. It’s funny.
