CHICAGO -- Groups opposed to circumcision are watching the case of an 8-year-old suburban Chicago boy whose divorced parents are fighting in court over whether he should have the procedure.
The child's mother wants him circumcised to prevent recurring, painful inflammation she says he has experienced during the past year.
But the father says the boy is healthy and circumcision, which removes the foreskin of the penis, is an unnecessary medical procedure that could cause him long-term physical and psychological harm.
The circumcision argument has always fascinated me. Such a pile of shit. And we learned the hard way.
Back in 1985 when my son was born I got sucked into the "no circumcision" world. I listened to all that nonsense about butchering and psychological damage and circumcision being unnatural. What a mistake.
When my son was five years old, we had to give in and have him done. And that my friends, was not easy. Talk about psychological harm.
I was kicking myself for being so stupid. When Danny was born something inside told me to have it done, but I gave in to all the arsholes who had all these hysterical stories against it.
If I had it to do all over again circumcision would not be a question. It would be done at birth.
And give me a break with all the psychological shit. I was born in the 50's, and back then just about everybody was circumcised - and I've yet to have a conversation with anyone who can remember being done, let along suffering psychological damage.
I'd say you're more inclined to have psychological damage from having a bunch of useless skin hanging off the end of your man machine.
Not only that, ask any woman what looks more attractive. A nice glistening pecker head, or an angry looking armadillo. No contest.
