I'm scared to post a link bc he said some pretty inflammatory stuff.  Google it and tell me what you think!

Righteous indignation, would describe it I think.  He may have not been tactful but he expressed his opinion.  Which I think was great!

Love what he said. Be sure to comment whenever, wherever you can to show other folks that this is wrong.

I was just coming here to post this.  He apologized though for this tweets.  Probably because the majority of his past and future bosses are Jewish.  Kinda sad.

I like what he had to say however I do think he could've been more tactful about it. The thing with intactivism is some people (including me) get so emotional about it that we forget that we are talking to people that really have no clue. We end up (too) passionately stating our case and it turns a lot of people off. I think if we could learn to be more compassionate instead of passionate we would actually get through to many more people. They don't need to hear how they mutilated their sons, they need to know that they can do better when they have correct information.

 

I do have a 'whole' new respect for Russell Crowe now though lol. My favorite was "Hygienic? Why don't you sew up your a$$ then!" (Again, not very tactful, but extremely thought provoking!)

Very thought provoking for a celebrity to come out and state this so clearly.  I think someone like him can probably get away with the blunt nature of his words.

 

I think it is important to try to put the emotion aside and focus on facts.  Focus on genital integrity, bodily integrity, religious freedom for the baby boy and the man he will become.  Post scientific studies, videos and other factual information.  People are entitled to their own opinions but not their own facts.
