 sometimes include exposure to South Africa's chilly winter conditions with skimpy clothing. Their faces are painted with red clay and they also are given herbal concoctions to drink.

This happens here too.

There's so much we can learn from these people..

I mean, think of all the resources that can be saved if the weak ones are weeded out early.

Way too many people anyway

Maybe the government shouldn't be involved in possibly fatal religious ceremonies.

Just a thought.

Yep, get a chunk of your dick hacked off and then bleed to death from your infected wang.

Most deaths in the past have been caused by infection and loss of blood after circumcision.

Makes you realize that the ones who have their penises stolen by witches are the lucky ones.

"Yeah, about that circumcision thing, a witch stole my penis so I'll get back to you if I get it back or anything."

Dying from an infected circumcision seems like a nasty way to go.

Or maybe they should.

Mexico was very advanced and wealthy when the Aztecs ran the place, and no criminals had the heart to become repeat offenders.

That's just part of your culture when you still practice them by having some old guy take a swat at a teenage boy's parts with a knife of unknown provenance and then hoping for the best.

Mexico was only "advanced and wealthy" if you were in a very tiny elite. If you weren't of the rulers of the Mexica of Tenochtitlan, not so much. This "advance" culture hadn't come up with steel or practical uses for wheels, either. Its economic paradigm was even more primitive than the nascent mercantilism of the contemporary Mediterranean societies (Spain, Italy, Turkey, etc.--it's one cultural loop). I realize that it's now the favored dogma to propagandize about how "advanced" and "wealthy" the dirt-kickers of the Americas were when the Europeans arrived, but the fact remains that the "advanced and wealthy" got their asses kicked, pulled back out, kicked some more, stepped on, kicked a bit more, and then made to thank the ass-kickers for the process, and this was all done by cultures that the propagandists would have us believe were "backwards" and "impoverished" by comparison to the "advanced and wealthy" endogenous American societies.

No one would argue that the Romans were more culturally, scientifically or technologically advanced than the Greeks, but it didn;t stop the romans from kicking greek Ass all over the Med.   And Ghengis Khan was a stinking savage, but he handily defeated the oldest and most advanced civilization on earth

After reading this I both felt a twinge of sympathy pain in my crotch and then a twinge of sympathy stomach pain. My sympathy is so conflicted!

But seriously, pretty sure this is like the worst possible way to die. You get part of your junk chopped off and get food poisoning and die. No thanks.

I don't think they were talking about castration.  It's just the removal of the foreskin.

You know how all of the losers from the old podunk town you grew up in never left home, but instead just stayed there the rest of their lives and wallowed in their own stupidity instead of expanding their horizons? When I read articles about things like this, or tribal genocide, or raping virgins to cure AIDS, I have to wonder if for the human race in general, a lot of Africa is that lame home town that we needed to leave.

There's some really nice places in Africa, don't get me wrong, but goddamn if there isn't some major ignorance going on there on a regular basis.

Perhaps if SA's chilly winter had proper clothing nothing like this would happen.

Well at least the survivors have a ruduced chance of catching the hiv :/

I used to know a bunch of kenyans. They said their initiation ritual was to be dumped in the bush with a spear and told to go kill a lion.

And that was Ok by them? just go out and murder endangered species for fun? What a lovely bunch of folk.

Actually, it was blood loss from a botched circumcision. Probably worse than an infected one but it will take you out way quicker.

They seem to have an unfortunate habit of hacking at genitals with random sharp items. Rather disturbing.

Indeed, not only did one idiot come up with the idea in the first place, but they found people who agreed with them and went "f**k yeah, let's place slice and dice with my sensitive bits, great idea!"

Some people are just psychotic, but you are supposed to ignore their advice not make it your religion.
