FYI…


The male foreskin is ESSENTIAL— it’s essential for normal, natural sexual functioning! Destroying and slicing it off a helpless, healthy baby boy cheats that boy/man of his birthright and cheats him of normal, natural sexual functioning. With this senseless, vile thing done, that male will NEVER know the full measure, the full degree of male sexual pleasures which are known only by older intact boys and intact men. Non-medical, lifelong-harmful, unethical infant circumcision invalid surgery is the PERFECT CRIME!

CIRCUMCISION Is a Religious/Cultural Procedure, Not a Medical Procedure, writes intactivist lawyer Steven Svoboda

[Intactivist lawyer Steven Svoboda is one of the principals at ARC, Attorneys for the Rights of the Child, (http://arclaw.org) a human rights organization dedicated to the ending of non-medical, lifelong-harmful, unethical infant circumcision in the US.Below is Svoboda’s response to two notorious promoters and pushers of the above kind of infant circumcision illegitimate surgery. Those two are Australian Brian Morris, Ph. D. (who’s lives in Australia), and Aaron Tobian, MD who is a professor at Johns Hopkins University Medical School (which, incidentally, is also a notorious, infamous pusher and promoter of senseless, non-medical, lifelong-harmful infant circumcision invalid surgery). Here, with references, is what Svoboda had published in the March 2014 issue of JAMA Pediatrics. [JAMA = Journal of the American Medical Association.]

Circumcision Is a Religious/Cultural Procedure,
Not a Medical Procedure


To the Editor:

Morris and Tobian (1) note that parents are granted wide latitude in authorizing surgical procedures for their children. But that latitude is not unlimited and is fiduciary in nature. Fundamentally, male circumcision is a religious and cultural cosmetic procedure, not a valid medical procedure.

Almost 70 years ago, writing in a much less child-protective era than the present, in Prince v Massachusetts, the US Supreme Court held that “neither rights of religion nor rights of parenthood are beyond limitation…. Parents may be free to become martyrs themselves. But it does not follow they are free, in identical circumstances, to make martyrs of their children [emphasis added]….”(2)

Morris and Tobian refer to the asserted “rarity” of “adverse
outcomes” from circumcision. Yet as the American Academy
of Pediatrics tells us, “The true incidence of complications after newborn circumcision is unknown.” (3) Moreover, unlike other medical procedures such as immunizations, which prevent serious childhood diseases, male circumcision provides no benefit to the vast majority of boys or men (and robs them of the most sensitive portion of the penis). Hence the serious injuries that do sometimes result from this needless procedure, up to and including death (estimated to be in the 3 digits annually in the United States), are truly unjustifiable tragedies.

Morris repeatedly cites his own polemics in an attempt to back up his plea that circumcision is safer in the newborn. Yet there is no evidence that the procedure is safer or better tolerated in infancy, and evidence exists to the contrary. (4)

Morris and Tobian’s contentions about “medical” benefits — claimed since the late 1800s — have been repeatedly shown to be weak, most recently in a powerful 2013 statement by 38 distinguished physicians from throughout Europe and Canada. (5) Urinary tract infections strike girls much more frequently than boys, and in all such cases are treated with oral antibiotics, not surgery. But if genital surgeries on girls did reduce such infections, would Morris and Tobian favor rolling them out universally? Could they even advocate research into the question without falling afoul of medical ethics? The clear and obvious answer is no.

Circumcision breaks the cardinal ethical rule for physicians, “First, do no harm”.

With the scarce medical resources we have available today, it is time to call a halt to this procedure, which even the American Academy of Pediatrics cannot claim has benefits sufficient to justify its universal practice.

This Muslim man tells why he wisely left his son intact. Tell your Muslim and non-Muslim friends about this 5 minute video.  [Jews and their hated brothers the Muslims are Semites. Jews torture and sexually mutilate helpless, healthy baby boys, and Muslims torture and sexually mutilate older, hapless, healthy boys. In various places, numbers of Muslims also mutilate the genitals of hapless, healthy girls.]   Thanks for your attention to this message and video.

With their calculated, deceptive rhetoric, the perpetrators of this atrocity attempt to draw links between an obvious horror and positive abstractions such as “tradition”, “religion”, “science”, “medicine”, and “hygiene”. The documents and essays on www.SexuallyMutilatedChild.org, however, expose this charade and show what the sexual mutilation of children is really about: envy, lust, hatred, male sexual rivalry, sadism, criminal psychopathology, desperation, ruthlessness, power, control, oppression, violence, contempt for humanity, and greed.
It’s about time that more human rights activists followed this lead and refused to play the circumcisers’ game of evading the real issues. Circumcision is not really about medicine or public health. Circumcision is not really about preventing or curing any disease. Circumcisers are not mistaken in their medical beliefs; they are lying. Circumcision advocacy is really about weaving a convincing network of lies to deflect the attention of the public and the criminal justice system from the frightening truth that circumcisers are really criminally deranged, psychotic, knife-wielding maniacs driven by psychopathic obsessions and compulsions that most people could never understand.

Why would anyone want THOSE feelings?

Oh wait, they DO want them.  

My personal story with discovering the ‘delicious’ feelings which had been stolen from me is something that happened within a month or so of starting to “tape” my remaining skin over my glans.  

I was sitting in a chair and felt the newly dekeratinized glans slip against the newly dekeratinized inner foreskin remnant— and “Holy fuck!” was what I remember thinking at the time.  I knew by then that I’d been robbed of the comfort of being covered up in daily activities.  I had also experienced the increase in sensation due to the shedding of the callus.  But this was a random moment when I wasn’t expecting anything… and it was both exciting and horrible.

Exciting because I was at least reclaiming part of my birthright to experience my body fully… but horrible because I knew the capacity for such was permanently diminished.

Where's my foreskin?

…I have nightmares about being circumcised by force. 

…I was circumcised by force when I was 9 and it has ruined my entire life. 

…I was circumcised when I was five — 70 years ago. I felt rage then and I still feel rage now. 

…I was circumcised when I was a year old. I remember my foreskin. I want my foreskin back. 

…I never got used to being circumcised. I just learned to endure it. 

…I think I could have accepted a deformity that was an accident of nature, but I can’t accept that someone did that to me.

…It cast a pall over my entire life. 

…It’s a life sentence at birth. 

…Hardest to take was my wife leaving me for a man who was intact. 

…I don’t have sex with anyone because I wouldn’t want to have sex with anyone who would have sex with someone who was circumcised. 

…I never let women see my penis because I think it’s ugly. 

…I have a good sexual relationship with my wife but I’m also turned on by foreskins and have had several intact lovers. Would I still have been gay if I hadn’t been circumcised? I’ll never know. 

…The only reason I’m gay is that I was circumcised when I was a baby. I feel deprived. It’s only with an intact man that I can have a foreskin. [This man later died of AIDS.] 

…I’ve never been able to accept the fact that someone cut part of my penis off when I was a baby. The sheer monstrousness of it haunts every waking moment of my life. Sometimes I think I’m beginning to make some sort of adjustment to it, but then I see an unmutilated man in a magazine or shower and I become overwhelmed by uncontrollable feelings of outrage and disbelief that I was made the victim for life of something so sick. Sometimes I feel I’m at the edge of madness and just can’t handle it.
