I cant even open my mouth to form words.
Oh and I am an Angelino whose had 2 breast augs, a little lipo, fillers, botox...you name it. I wear high heels to the grocery store. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to understand that cosmetic surgery is for the person who own the body to be operated on. I would NEVER even fathom taking a knife to my sons. Not any part of them especially their penis. Its a penis for Christs sake. Its the center of their sexuality and masculinity. Circ is just bizarre. Absolutely bizarre.
Did you write a letter? I had a dream last night that your letter was published in their next issue.
Wouldn't that be something.
Yes! Completely inappropriate! My dh laughed at them, btw. Laughing is his way of making fun of the ridiculous illustrations. I nearly puked!
Oh i hope so! Its in my mailbox now...I am doing a snail mail one. I hand wrote it but these were my points:
-the article did not adequately examine why loose circumcision are preferred by doctors now except to say that they are avoiding law suits (however, they did not mention that this was because of the dangers of a tight circumcision- erections, pain, etc)
- I addressed the first quote wherein the parents said their child 'wouldnt look like most babies" and that he would always look like something was botched- mentioning that BEFORE his circumcision he looked perfectly normal, just like 80% of men in the world
- I talked a while about how this article confirms the cosemtic nature of circumcision and brings to the surface the very real problem americans have of placing too much emphasis on aesthetics-- so much so that they would put their child through not one but TWO or more cosemtic surgeries on the most sensitive part of their body....all in the name of making them look more sexually pleasing and 'normal'
- I questioned what kind of doctor could ever participate in this
