There are a billion reasons, but this video shares some. “Sex & Circumcision: An American Love Story by Eric Clopper”
I also like to cite that it only started to reduce the pleasure of men in America, at a time when a similar practice was started to stop “self-abuse” in women.
And that it is rare around the world, except in less developed countries (mainly in Africa and the Middle East.)
And I like to talk about how it messed up David Reimer’s life.
I have a ton more arguments, but those are some of my favorites. It is an unnecessary invasive procedure, and no children give consent to have their genitals mutilated before the age of consent!
Props to Andrew Yang for criticizing this practice.
Fuzoku. I never heard that word before and I had no idea they were forbidden from leaving certain areas in a near caste society, and am not sure how that worked.
“There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled.”
*serial killer is about to kill you* *God appears* You – Yay! My God is here to save me. God – No can do. This serial killer’s free will is WAY more important than your life.
The establishment is pushing Beto, and this article with all its generation ID poling made me realize that the washington Post readership is probably mostly Gen X. Gen X needs to step aside along with the Boomers, they’re all libertarian ideologues who want endless deregulation.
Reading through these comments I think Generation X is also part of the problem. If you want to fight corruption you can’t just elect a champion, you also need systematic reforms, but Gen. X is still so brainwashed by pro-capitalist propaganda that they can’t see the light. In school they were probably straight up taught not just that communism is evil, but that it is satanic. That bleeds into making them inherently distrust any sort of socialism. I see them as in between Boomers and Millennials in their degree of favorability toward taxes or restrictions on billionaires.
This is why we need universal healthcare. It’s not “good news.”
