Do you want to see shit hit the fan? Circumcision

One of the most contentious words, if not the most contentious word in the internet parenting world:


*Ducks for cover*


Disclaimer: This post is intended to be humorous, to point out that all one has to do to incite cutthroat, never-ending debate is to bring up routine infant circumcision. Don’t believe me? Try it. And no, I don’t care what you chose to do with your son’s junk. This post is NOT meant as a commentary on the practice of RIC. Do not, I repeat, do not ask me about the state of my son’s genitalia, which is, frankly, none of your business.

    I’m reminded of a joke to the effect that Indian men can tell each other’s religion at the urinal. Yes, everyone peeks.

      Well, circumcision didn’t occur at all in the Americas in pre-Columbian times, and it’s still pretty rare for Indians. In fact, for a fair number of peoples, the exposed glans penis is itself obscene because of its association with arousal. Though I do know a woman whose mother was from the Black Elk family and her father was a Mizrahi kohan. Oh wait, you were talking about India…

      Oh, and this was posted just before Rosh Hashanah. i c wut u did thar, Kavin. 😉
