auzziediamond asked: Well there are negatives but there are also positives. Look you have a great blog full of information like the car seat posts, I never knew changing the car seat to the front was dangerous, so Im happy I never turnt it around. However with the circumcision posts, yes your just trying to inform them, but it makes the mums who do get their son cut, look like bad mums, however I know that is not your intention.
Thank you for this, My intention isn’t to make anyone look like a bad mom which is why on the side of my blog I have posted “If you weren’t fully informed or were given incorrect information and regret your sons circumcision I’m so sorry, the only thing I can tell you is when you know better you do better <3" I honestly just feel horrible for the mothers that have to suffer and I’ve had people tell me thank you for sharing anyway and I’ve had people tell me they respect what I’m doing but can’t follow me because it makes them feel horrible and I completely understand and respect those women so much.
I hope no one feels like me being against RIC is making you feel bad but as I always say - When you know better you do better! You can’t go back and change anything you’ve done but you can take what you know now and use that information where you can.
I appreciate the anti-genital mutilation views. However, the mothers don’t really matter in this, neither do the fathers. Who matters are the sons who were brutalized, victimized, and systematically oppressed by their parents, were seen as too dirty at birth, not good enough, not perfect, so they had the most erogenous part of their body cut off. The truth hurts, but knives hurt worse. The boys have to feel both, the knives and then the truth when they’re older. They are who I care about. I am done beating around the bush. I will not censor myself to comfort anyone’s ignorance. I will call genital mutilation what it is and call the parents what they are. Genital mutilation is rape, sexual assault and molestation all rolled into one culturally accepted package, and parents should feel like shit for having done that to their sons. THEY don’t matter, the CHILD matters, and now the CHILD will suffer for THE PARENTS’ mistake.
Wow I know people who are against circumcisions and I dont mind, thats their choice.
But circumcision is NOT rape, NOT molestation and NOT sexual assault… and it is soooo wrong that you compare those horrible incidents to circumcision.
Yes you may not agree to it, yes you have a right to express your opinion on your own blog.. however do not compare complete different things to the matter.
I would NEVER touch my son indecently, that is just horrific, I feel like shit if I accidentally bump his head let alone do disgusting things to him.
My point is yea you have a opinion and thats great, it means your a human. But your view on it is soo wrong.
For one, i HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO CALL A SPADE A GOD DAMNED SPADE. Pick up a dictionary:
Check yourself. Also, you do NOT tell a victim of a crime that it’s any less than it is, YOU DON’T GET TO DETERMINE THAT.
if you forced this on your son, congratulations, you are a rapist, a sexual assaulter, a mutilator and a molester. He deserved better if that’s the case.
From merriam webster’s online dictionary
Mutilation:1: to cut up or alter radically so as to make imperfect <the child mutilated the book with his scissors>2: to cut off or permanently destroy a limb or essential part of : cripple
Assault:a : a threat or attempt to inflict offensive physical contact or bodily harm on a person (as by lifting a fist in a threatening manner) that puts the person in immediate danger of or in apprehension of such harm or contact — compare battery 1b b : rape 2
Rape: a archaic : to seize and take away by force
First of all a penis is not classified a limb, it is classified an artery and you are able to remove organs without affecting/ or causing to much harm.
Second of all I am not intentionally hurting him or wanting to cause him “great harm” as you put it.
Third of all of saying that I “raped” him due to I “forced” him, well that means when I got him vaccinated, I “forced” him…
Look like I said you are very right to have an opinion, thats fine… however you are not “calling a spade a spade” you are calling a spade a fucking truck, two complete different things.
Vaccinations can save his life, circumcision can end it. Over 100 babies die from it in the US alone, each fucking year and that’s an estimate because many deaths aren’t reported. And the genitals are very damn necessary. Are your genitals necessary? How would you feel if your mom had your clit cut out at birth? Could you still have children without it? If you sign a consent form for someone to do this to you son: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fb39r6CvhqU
You are a monster. There is NO HARM WITH KEEPING HIM INTACT, you can end his life by subjecting him to a medically unnecessary COSMETIC surgery!
Perhaps for posterity, you should watch this 30minute lecture by one Dr.McAlister on the subject, this is a man whose job and profession it is to know all of this. If you won’t listen to someone like me who obviously knows more, how about a man who went through a decade of university on the subject? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ceht-3xu84I
