It was a replay of a 1998 show where Shirley Manson from the group Garbage and Howard were emphatically declaring circumcision to be genital mutilation. Loved it!

I know he has the right view on circumcision but he is just so gross and tacky. Just looking at him makes me feel scrubbing myself with soap and hot water! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Howard Stern happens to be the first person I ever heard expressing an opinion about circumcision. He got me thinking about the issue for the first time. I can't take too much of him, but I have to give credit where credit's due. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I agree about Howard being tacky and gross but I'm glad he feels that way about circing.<br><br>
I already liked Shirley Manson, now I have another reason to like her. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Me too. Before that, all I had ever heard from anyone about it was from my mom - saing that my intact father had gotten tons of infections. Anyhow, it was Stern that got me thinking about it long before I was even considering children.

I am so glad to hear this. My dh listens to Howard and I had no idea this was his stance! Thanks for sharing.

Here is some of what Howard has had to say over the years re:circumcision,<br><a href="http://www.sexuallymutilatedchild.org/stern.htm" target="_blank">http://www.sexuallymutilatedchild.org/stern.htm</a><br><br>
Take care,<br>

So Shirley Manson could be a potential (or actual) inactivist!<br><br>
