I Am So Pissed Off At How Stuborn People Are!

I've have 2 encounters in the last two weeks with women who believed in the "benefits" of circumcision. Even after being provided a TON of credible information from doctors, testimonies from men who have suffered because of circumcision, and alternatives to circumcision that don't cause any harm to the boy these women still stand by their flawed idea that "It's what's best for him."

One woman is not a mother yet but is planning to have kids and she insists that she's going to circumcise her sons if she has any. She asked for the information to prove to her what harm it would cause so I thought OK she's just been lied to for years, she honestly believes this and doesn't know it's a lie but she's willing to reconsidering it. Well I guess she just said that to humor me because after like 2 weeks she still hasn't even looked at the information I sent her.

The other one happened just now and this woman has a 17 or 18 year old son. My guess is she doesn't want to admit that I'm wright because then she'd have to admit that she did the most horrible thing imaginable to her son. I gave her all the real facts about circumcision and even after all that she still said "I still think it's a good thing." to which I got pissed and asked "Why? What's good about it? Name one thing!" to which she could not find an answer. She just replied saying "I don't want to talk about this anymore."

How can people be so mind bogglingly stupid? This only proves to me that we need a law which restricts what parents are allowed to alter in a child's body only to what is deemed medically necessary. This law should also prevent parents from getting their daughter's ears pierced which I don't think is as bad but still a cosmic alteration that involves poking holes threw skin for no medical reason.

These days there are non-surgical ways to deal with any problem that an intact boy might have. This means that circumcision itself would just be illegal sense there will never be a medical reason to have it done. Any doctor who even recommends circumcision as an option should have his medical license revoked and charged with malpractice.

And men who have already gone under the knife should be given the right to sue their doctors if they want to. That's a rather embarrassing thing to sue someone for and I can understand some men not wanting to go to court to talk about part of their penis getting chopped off. Personally I'm considering it because of how pissed off I am but I don't know that I could actually go threw with it because of how embarrassed I would be to talk about it in a room full of strangers. It's easy to talk about my penis and lack of foreskin here because it's not like any of you can see my face. This is entirely anonymous but I think in order to sue someone I would have to show my face. Especially sense I don't actually know who to sue so I'd have to go to the hospital where I was born, find out who the doctor was and weather or not he or she still works there which would mean. I'm pissed off but I'm not particularly comfortable with a bunch of strangers knowing the condition of my penis. There's too many people already who know that I'm already not happy about.

Maybe that's why really nothing is being done to change it though, because it's just too embarrassing to go out in public where everyone can see your face and tell the world that I'm circumcised and I'm ******* pissed off. If only there was a way we could tell the world without showing our faces... oh wait there is, it's called the internet. We really need to get this message out where people can see it because they happen to be looking up circumcision this doesn't really come up in any searches. We should change search tags to a variety of different topics so that no matter what someone is looking for they see the horrors of circumcision. Spam the internet with the truth about circumcision so that things can change for the better and don't stop until the entire world knows the truth. No more lies, no more people being allowed to do what they know is wrong.

I want to be a part of something that changes the world for the better before I die. Obviously I'm not doing this for the fame or the attention because I'm totally anonymous on here. No one will know I did anything at all, no one will even know who I am, but I'll know, and that means something to me. It's my dying wish that male genital mutilation will end. Please use the comments on this story to discuss ideas on how to better make sure people see the facts. One rule though, do not criticize another person's idea unless you post your own ideas first. If you can't come up with a plan of you own you have no right to judge. Also might be helpful if someone knows how can get a bill submitted to congress. I figure we should start with the U.S. because that's where the most men are being subjected to this torturer. And they have the nerve to call themselves the land of the free. I guess freedom of choice doesn't apply to men.

When I stumbled across this horrifying truth, I was ticked off I mother got me cut because she says it keeps "it" cleaner and it's in the Bible. I come from a Christian background. Any guy that's not circumcised will not be able to get into Heaven etc. I did some research, come to find out, way back then the popes thrived off of torture etc. <br />
<br />
I'm so mad for being snipped, it's just as bad as chopping the whole organ off. I'm from the U.S. I'm totally against it. It should be the free will of the male once he reaches legal age of what he wants to do. <br />

CIRCUMCISION SHOULD ONLY BE DONE AS A LAST RESORT!!!! I typed in all caps to put emphasis on just that. My folks grew up in the south, in the Carolinas and Georgia. They can be deceived very easily. I'm trying my hardest to wake them up. That not every verse in the Bible is not meant to be literally interpreted.

That seems odd that you would be cut for religious reasons when you're not Jewish or Muslim. That's not even a Christian tradition. This is the first I've heard of a Christian being cut for religious reasons. Anyway, I think it's a violation of Freedom of Religion for someone who's not even old enough to choose their own religion to get cut for religious reasons. I brought this up to my congressman and he replied that's a violation of Freedom or Religion not to allow parents to have their children cut. How does does it violate the parent's rights when it's not their body that's being cut? If the father wants to get cut for religious reasons fine that's his choice. Cutting a child for a religion he didn't choose to be a part of is a clear violation of his rights. That's parents forcing their religion on their children in the worst possible way, branding them, which should not be allowed.

It's in the Bible, I'm no longer a Christian, my mother was a Baptist, my father was a Roman Catholic. That narrow minded dogmatic belief structures. I'm very spiritual but I'm not religious. The Bible states that every man is to be circumcised. Genesis 17:10-14 10 This is my covenant, which you shall keep, between me and you and your offspring after you: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised. Every male throughout your generations, whether born in your house or bought with your money from any foreigner who is not of your offspring, 13 both he who is born in your house and he who is bought with your money, shall surely be circumcised. So shall my covenant be in your flesh an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male who is not circumcised in the flesh of his foreskin shall be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.”

Genesis 21:4 "And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac when he was eight days old, as God had commanded him."

Luke 2:21 "And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb." THAT'S NOT A REQUIREMENT TO GET INTO HEAVEN!!!!!!!!

Finally 1st Corinthians 7:19 says it's okay not to be circumcised - " For neither circumcision counts for anything nor uncircumcision, but keeping the commandments of God."

What the hell????? The unnecessary perpetual suffering of babies. There are YouTube videos of that damn surgery, they have the babies strapped down, they don't numb them, nor put them to sleep. I cringed and squinted from that damn sight. Any parent in their right mind won't put their child through that! The videos are mainly for educational purposes for medical students. I can't believe that I survived that!

The parent should take a few extra moments to clean the child down there and when the kid gets older, educate him on how to clean himself down there. It's not that difficult.

It doesn't even take a few extra minutes to clean down there. That's a myth. It only takes 5 seconds to clean an intact penis. It takes more time an effort to clean a cut penis plus you have to change his diaper every 10 minutes regardless of weather or not he's done anything in it to change the bandage. Once a circumcised penis has healed then they're exactly the same to clean. Sure an intact guy has to learn that he needs to pull the foreskin back and wash under it but that doesn't take any extra time to do. Girls are much more complicated to clean and they would actually get more of a cleaning benefit from having the extra flaps cut out but everyone agrees how horrible that is. It's odd that they think it's OK for boys and not girls, I thought we were suppose to have equal rights in this country. Seems to me like girls got the better end of that deal.

None of the men in my immediate family are circumcised. My paternal grandfather was, and he was left disfigured. Thank goodness he was able to reproduce! Anyway, he had 3 boys and none of them were circumcised. On my mother's side the men were circumcised, but my cousin (who's a very crunchy hippie) didn't circumcise her son. <br />

My boyfriend is circumcised and his parents were present for it, even though the hospital didn't want them there. They were horrified. They had another son a few years later, but didn't circumcise him. If we're having a boy, he won't be circumcised.

It's nice to hear there are entire families that aren't doing it. That actually gives me some hope that things are changing. Thanks for sharing. :)

Oh, to add insult to injury, literally... I've just been informed that the response I got was from a send only automated e-mail service. He didn't even read my e-mail. Gawd damn it, please, spam your congressmen.

Well I just got an e-mail from my congressman which gives a two-faced reply. It basically states that he supports parental and religious rights even though they're wrong but then goes on to say that there is no bill currently in place in ban it but if there was he would "keep my concerns in mind" which basically means, not really but if it'll get you to vote for me I'll say it anyway.

Yeah I sent him another e-mail. Still it would be helpful if every congressman was being flooded with e-mails regarding this subject. They're more likely to do something if they see a strong group of people all over the country wanting this change and not just a single individual.

At my own expense, I had to put my embarrassment aside for what I know is write to help others. I've found my congressman and e-mailed him with a lot of information about circumcision hoping to get a bill passed. I encourage you to do the same. You can do a search for your state and congressman then you should find a web site with a map and under that map it'll tell you to enter your zip code, doing this will take you right to your congressman's web page where you can e-mail him or her about this issue.

That's a load of bull crap. Not you but the conresscunt (very fitting name I like that) you were talking to. I thought the U.S. was suppose to be about equal rights for everyone not about putting mens rights above women or women's rights above men. Women fought for the right to vote, play men's sports, and equal pay in the work force and now men have to fight for the right to choose what happens to their own bodies? That hardly seems fair. I'd much rather make less money then a woman, make less money than a woman, and loose my right to vote then to be hacked up for a crime I didn't even commit. I actually believe in equal rights for both genders, do these feminist penis cutters? If they believed in equal rights they'd get their daughter's cut up too or put an end to all genital mutilation.
