Circumcision: Male Genital Mutilation (Hello! Occh!)
How in the world did we ever come to a place where male genital mutilation is not only completely accepted as a societal custom, but also embraced as a religious practice?! Truly, it is regarded as a rite of passage into this world of pain and suffering.
It’s like, after the baby boy is born, as if that’s not traumatic enough, he is then forced to suffer the excruciating pain and shock of having a very important piece of his body cut off … from the most sensitive part of his body, no less!
Just who is it (or who was it) that determined that the male genitalia was somehow flawed by the Creator?
An exposed penis (chopped off penis) is much more excitable than one which has not been circumcised. The foreskin serves the purpose of protecting a highly sensitive organ which was made that way for a very good reason. When it is removed, friction between the exposed head and either underwear or pants greatly increases the opportunities for the penis to be physically excited. The ramifications of this single completely avoidable life-long predicament are truly catastrophic to both the man and his society.
Especially in an age that is replete with instances of graphic sexual content at every turn does this physical situation take on great significance. For many adolescent boys the constant friction can keep them in a state of constant low grade sexual excitation which will infect every part of their lives. As an example, especially at school where all the coeds sit across the aisle, the distraction from studies can be quite agitating.
A fully exposed penis is a much different organ than one that has not been circumcised, as we just described. There are many other life situations which arise for boys, young adults and grown men which challenge them to a much greater degree because this vital protective barrier has been snipped off (The higher “Rape” of women is also a part of this sick equation).
Look at how we all justifiably react to the terrible female mutilations in Africa! This is also very not right for the young girls and everyone else involved. And the global outcry is having a positive effect on forever changing that barbaric custom.
Yet, where’s the outcry for baby male genital mutilation?!
NOTE: The U.S. and Israeli are the two industrial countries who do circumcision the most. And they are the most warlike nations with the U.S. having the worst crime rates especially against women. The other countries that do circumcision have higher crime rates as well.
“God spoke to Moses, telling him to speak to the Israelites: When a woman conceives and gives birth to a boy…on the eighth day, the flesh of his foreskin shall be circumcised.”
