Ok, I was at my sisters and she has an old tape from the Rugrats. Well it's a movie when a new baby is born. In the nursery, all the babies are singing and the little girl lifts her diaper and looks down it and sings "they even cut my cord" And the little boy lifts his diaper and looks down it and sings "consider yourself lucky" So does that mean, consider yourself lucky that's all they cut?? My sister and I were trying to figure it out and I'm pretty sure that's what they mean. So sad! Not to mention all the babies in the nursery are toting around bottles. Anyway, any opinion?

Hmmm, haven't seen that movie, but I do know that some of the parents on Rugrats are Jewish. (I watched Nick as a kid, late 80's or early 90's) So, yeah, I would think that's what the comment meant. And, yeah, as a female, I do consider myself lucky to be born where FGM is unacceptable <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:

The Jewish characters wouldn't have been circ'ed while still in the hospital. They must be referring to RIC. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Rugrats is a pretty annoying show anyway. What's one MORE reason to hate it? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Well, that kind of sounds like an anti-circ comment to me...as in, it DOES happen, but the baby obviously wasn't happy about it?<br><br>

Yes it was a reference to at least that boy being cut. I stopped watching rugrats because of that very reason.

Out of the three couples I know who circ'd because they were Jewish, 2 of the 3 had their babies circ'd by a Jewish OB at the hospital because they felt it was "better." So, some do.

I <i>hope</i> it was meant as an anti-circ comment. I used to watch Rugrats on Nickelodeon all the time when I was younger.

but they are equating it to cutting off the umbilical cord.
