Infant Male Circumcision: Unnecessary Child Abuse

29 Oct


I would never even consider circumcision for my daughter Tessa. Why would I consider circumcision if I have a boy next?

The topic of infant male circumcision came up in conversation with a good friend a couple of days back. This is another one of the many issues that I am passionate about. Just call me an old-fashioned wahoo, but it pisses me the f*ck off when people needlessly hurt children – whether it’s savage dismemberment in the womb or barbaric genital mutilation shortly after birth.

It never ceases to amaze me that so many people just go along with the cultural norms of the day unquestioningly, to the extent of binding little girl’s feet,  mutilating a girl’s clitoris and labia, or chopping off the most pleasurable part of a little boys penis. Unquestioningly. Unthinkingly. And all because society says it’s okay.

Once confronted with the facts of male circumcision, most women who ignorantly subjected their sons to this vile act get defensive and aggressive, born out of guilt. And a lot of guys, confronted with the injustice dealt them, get defensive and protective of their manhood and ferociously assert that they are “just fine”. (Despite the fact that 70% of their erogenous nerve endings on their sex organ is gone.)

The good news is, more and more men and women are waking up to the facts and choosing to NOT mutilate theirs son’s genitals for social conformity. To date, only about 30% of baby boys leave the hospital with butchered winkles. And the number is daily dwindling. By the time I have a boy, his generation will be overwhelmingly intact and the archaic parents who insist on perpetuating a sick tradition will have boys with partial penises wondering why THEY are different.

Since there’s tons of info that can and has been relayed, discussed and hammered out (there’s was a mini firestorm on my blog for posting the above meme, haha)) here are some circumcision memes I’ve found to enlighten and entertain. Enjoy. ^_^

    I definitely agree that it’s unreasonable to do that kind of thing to your baby. However, though it’s on a different scale, parents pierce their baby girls’ ears all the time. So it’s not that it’s sexist, it’s more that it’s ageist; it’s not giving babies the opportunity to wait until they can make the choice for themselves.

      I’m also against baby’s ears being pierced, however the offense is less so in that the ears can close up and heal themselves. A foreskin can’t grow back.

        Yeah, different scale of offence, as I said. Hopefully the custom is a truly dying one.

    I completely agree. I was never told about what goes on and honestly I didn’t think about it. I grew up being told it was normal as did my husband. It was one of those things that you trust the “pros” on. As I stated before, I regret it. When I started researching information on things that involved my child I saw a video of it and I couldn’t believe what I had agreed to. Now, I try to tell people about it, because most doctors aren’t going to. Thanks for writing about it and letting others know the truth!
