I don't think it's the funniest thing ever, but it's worth a chuckle.

Quoting A Beautiful Disaster:" religious reasons or not...its still mutilating the body, just like female circumcision. "


Why do you suppose God required it of the Jews? BTW Female circumcision is not ever mentioned in the Bible. Only males.

Thats what I was trying to get at. They have a debate about women shouldn't be on the frot line etc..because of our periods and being clean. Yet men are and dont shower for days or weeks. So whats the difference? Anyways like I said I could careless. My son doesnt hate me for it :)

Not many people in aus are circd which is why dh doesnt like it plus coz of some doco he saw on some ancient civilisation who use to circ boys to discourage them from masterbating coz it takes away sensitivity or something?? I dunno i wasnt watching it.

That was one of the reasons it became so popular in the US, lol. They thought it discouraged masturbation.

I am totally late on this, but I found it rather funny. Sadly, it's true.

It is if you are Jewish.



I didn't circumcise my son for any religious reasons. I did it because it was "normal". However, an Orthodox Jew has been commanded, as a covenant with God. I can see how it would be VERY important to them.
