Perhaps you all remember my outrage over Germany legalizing the medically non-necessary circumcision of male infants in the first six months of his life, in order to cater towards highly offended Jews (and Muslims) after a district court has found that the practice violates the constitution. Since then, not much has happened, religious groups are very happy, while most non-religious folks are outraged. Perhaps some people will gather the courage to take this to the Bundesverfassungsgericht (our version of the Supreme Court), but whatever they dare to do, they'll surely get labeled as anti-semites and intolerant haters, simply because they dared to question something that (I think) most unbiased people would consider wrong. Never knew that standing up against baby boys being hurt and having altered genitalia for the rest of their existence is so anti-semitic and hate-filled, but perhaps that's just the kind of evil person I am.
And just now, I had the pleasure of reading about this, an Israeli woman being told to either have her son circumcised or pay a daily fine of 140$ until she does. Apparently, the legal system in Israel does give religious courts authority in matters of divorce, as it's the woman's estranged husband who demands his son to be circumcised. Still, I can't really word how appalled I am by this. And those involved still have the audacity to play the role of the victim!
"We have been seeing public and legal fights against circumcision in the United States and Europe for quite some time," they said, adding that the people of Israel stand "united against this phenomenon" and see it "as another aspect of the anti-Semitic acts that must be fought."
I can't fathom how cutting off a piece of a boy's penis can be so important to some people that they see their entire religion threatened if someone stops them from doing it. And to me, this just spells that cutting off a piece of their child's dick is more important to these people than the well-being of the child itself. Granted, I never had children. But I can't imagine being able to have my child's sexuality altered or in some cases ruined for the rest of their life. Yes, I know, it doesn't have to have negative consequences, but if it ain't broke, what are you trying to fix? Why would you want to keep your child from having an unaltered body to explore his sexuality? If you're an adult and you want to have the procedure done, have at it hoss, it's your body, you're welcome to alter it as you see fit. But to have it done on those who cannot give consent makes me sick to my stomach.
Sorry to be bothering you guys (and gals) with this again, but if I'm angry, I try to calm down by writing about it.
EDIT: Well what do you know, TYT is now also covering it:
