When Ms. Ngcuka endorsed surgery over condoms to prevent STDs, I felt I was transported to the 19th century where circumcision was thought to cure everything from epilepsy to masturbation.
Why does the doctor perform this abuse on baby boys only? Because he can. It’s rightfully illegal for girls, and at any other age would necessitate general anesthesia because the pain – and no obvious need for it – would cause a violent confrontation. Babies can only cry out, which these mutilators ignore.
Cutting someone else’s genitals without consent is not a good idea outside of reasons of valid medical intervention. It is not a women’s issue, it is not a men’s issue, it is a people issue and must be approached as such. Stop gendering ungendered problems and stop spreading misinformation and relying on knee jerk emotional propaganda to manipulate people into ignoring the real issue.
If the ceremony isn’t about the circumcision, why do it at all? The bloodless naming ceremony is fine for the girls, why not for the boys?
He has a website for non-Jews that’s actually called – get this – “Holistic Circumcision,” sort of like ‘military intelligence.’
“I don’t like being circumcised; I don’t like it at all.” JT, in his own words
‘Regular’ people are allowed to mutilate baby boys any time or place, under cover of a religious title, under no scrutiny of the government or the medical profession. You too can sexually abuse and mutilate baby boys – just say it’s being done for ‘religious’ reasons.
Watch Georganne Chapin of IntactAmerica tell her story of intactivism and why male genital mutilation is so wrong.
I’d like to remind the doctor that the infant with the genitals to be cut most likely would not agree to this at this time or ever, despite all the “meaning and feeling for all of us adults.”
Exposure to children vs. genital mutilation: “it is probably not a good idea to have the newborn baby undergoing the ceremony exposed so early in its life to so many young children.”
Circumcision or Freedom – You Can’t Have Both!
The unethical practice of allowing parents to consent for their infant boy to MGM is illegal and immoral, and something parents should think about.
