Crass and Jaded Mother Farker: MaudlinMutantMollusk: C-FAP?Actually, just FAP....(fap, fap...) Apparently they aren't international yet. Although, Italy's will be fun when it's started. (I-FAP)
misanthropologist: gingerjet: I was sort of alright with the article until we got to this part:"I would like Oprah to come to her senses and realize that all children have a fundamental human right to keep all their genitalia and to decide for themselves if anything gets cut off," Callender said Wednesday.Parents make all sorts of decisions for their children that have a wider impact on their lives than whether to circumcise or not./really don't understand some guys obsessiveness over other peoples foreskin//haters in 3...2...Partly it's about gender symmetry - if female genital cutting is horrific and needs to be stopped, then male genital cutting is also horrific and needs to be stopped. It's fascinating that the anti male-circumcision folks really focus on a child's inherent right to bodily integrity and to consent, as an individual, to modification, whereas the anti female-genital cutting crowd tend to focus not on agency but on the necessity of bodily integrity. Double standards... fun times. Some great anthropological writing on this stuff too.Not sure I'd have my baby boy circumcised, if I had a baby boy. I might let him decide to do it at 14, like a Maasai.
HotWingConspiracy: Please don't let this become a thing. I don't want to read about Chinese and Indian foreskin farms and a burgeoning international foreskin black market in five years.
