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.
How DARE you have an opinion that doesn’t completely describe my experience!!!
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…
