i was hanging out at the vaccination area and someone posted an article, Dangerous Witchdoctoring by someone named Catherine Seipp.

Arghhh... I don't see the connection! (Maggiore and vaccinations)

well, the writer in question also makes some pretty derogatory statements about circumsicion:

Quote:
And silly as the anti-circumcision, breastfeeding-until-four, family-bed philosophies of Paul Fleiss and Jay Gordon (who began his career in Dr. Fleiss’s office) are, at least they don’t endanger public health.
and

Quote:
Sure, uncircumcised boys are more likely to have infections when they grow up, but urologists need to earn a living too. Ditto psychotherapists, who should be kept busy for decades dealing with the results of breastfed preschoolers and children kept in bed with their parents through grade school.
i can't for the life of me figure out what a mother with HIV breastfeeding her child has to do with the state of that child's penis, but i sent a link to feebeeglee so she can get some education anyway....

Ange. Mama to boys. Yup. All Boys. All Intact. A bunch of other NFL, crunchy credentials too.

my response was it's so much better to give the ob/gyn $200-250 for half the population. and my son had a ton of ear infections but no one let him cut of his ears....
