Ok, I am on vacation this week and I treated myself to a spa facial. I asked the lady to perform extractions on my face...that is where they force dirt out of your pores. It hurt like hell. I felt my body's pain reflex force my head against the table trying to get away from this woman's hands that were causing me so much pain.

And all I was thinking about was that I, as an adult, understood why I was in pain, I had consented to this procedure, and it was certainly much less painful than circumcision.

I almost started crying right there as it hit home for me that baby boys have no idea why they are being put through this pain and there is no escape for them.

This may seem like an odd parallel, but I thought I'd share it anyway.
