And they are doing it because they are ignorant? No, because they are hurting over something else, and they are blind, and, as the late John Erickson said, when you are blind you need to be told you are blind. Mothering magazine was doing this, esp. with their great article by Paul Fleiss a few years ago. What happened? Why is it now okay to be using babies' bodies to satisfy parents' and doctors' and religious groups' personal concepts?
I'd never really thought about it before, but the OB that delivered my son tortured me...sewed my tear up, refusing to give me any local anestesia...I was sobbing, dumbstruck by his cruelty...
It makes perfect sense, though...he's a circumcisor. A sadist. At least my wound healed....
