“Jesse’s response:

I was circumcised and I’m not too bad off, I don’t really remember being circumcised, and when I’ve actually had this conversation with my friends to see if it was just me, none of them remember it either, and none of them have experienced any long term ailments from being circumcised. I’m not pro-circumcision, I’m pro-mindyourownbusiness. For a lot of families, it’s a tradition, and not a religious sort of thing. I asked my dad once why I was circumcises, and he simply put it "Because every dude in the family has gotten circumcised for as far back as we can trace our history.” I asked my grandfather, all of his brothers were, and his father and all of his uncles were. And as far as I know, it goes back several more generations. So yeah, that’s simply my two cents. You do what you want, you think what you want, you be against what you want, but please, stay out of my family’s business and let us do our thing.“


You might not be upset about your circumcision, but keep in mind that a) you have no idea what you’re missing and you can never get that back, and b) compared to the overall male experience, yours is anecdotal. Here. Some highlights from that survey:

  • ”Sexual symptoms: 76% reported dry, keratinized glans requiring supplemental lubrication; 24% suffer erectile dysfunction; and 16% reported painful erections. One respondent reported “chafing/bleeding during sex due to remaining skin being too tight and unmovable.”
  • Psychological effects: Many respondents reported deep sorrow, a sense of loss and inferiority, feelings of abandonment,  inadequacy, anger at being mutilated, and mistrust of doctors. 78% feel “less whole,” 68% feel “inferior” to men who are intact, and 68% feel “not normal” or “unnatural.” 13% of respondents report having suicidal thoughts; 5% have attempted suicide.

I know it’s a religious/tradition oriented thing for many feelings, but there are lots of traditions that DON’T involve submitting your baby to stress levels comparable to torture, not to mention the blood, the pain, the neurological change, the fact that circumcision is paying someone to cut a newborn baby’s penis for NO REASON? Most parents don’t include traditions that submit their baby to a fairly high risk of death, dismemberment, and/or dysfunction in their parenting regime.

You want to bring your child up a certain religion? Awesome. You want to take him to the lake to fish with you when he turns 5? Great. You want to take him out for his first drive when he’s 10? Sweet, sounds like fun. THOSE are family traditions.

Cutting baby genitals is a “tradition” that needs to end. Would you defend abusing your kid because your dad abused you and your grandfather abused him? If your mom was circumcised because her mom was circumcised, would you allow the surgical removal of your daughters clitoral hood?

I’ll mind my own business when non-consenting babies and children are no longer submitted to risky cosmetic surgery.

I've been having a rough day, and your blog (and quite frankly, your blog alone) has kept me in great spirits. Thank you!

Hey there! Glad you like the content.

Sometimes rough days happen and all we can do is breathe and endure it. That’s okay. Things will improve and get better! Cheers!

You pride in what you do, and what you do, you do it well. While you’re all for listening to both ends, you try to say your piece, regardless of the side, in a neutral standpoint. Some may take it as backpedaling, but you just want to avoid being an asshole. At least, it is what usually happens.

When frustrated, you try and curve your frustration, generally.

Tough love and kidding around seems to be the way for you to get along with certain people and you’re just fine with that. While playful on some situations, you are analytical in others.

This makes you

Porygon2!

dipstickfiddleshit said: This is me, 95% of the time, except I’m a dude. So I still feel your plight.

Dude, I’m pretty sure I understand dudes better than I do chicks hahahah

I’m so awkward .

She was said, “You should give me a hug.”

my response:

and then I held my arms out when I was sitting down.

So in other words, I’m an idiot.

I did get up and give her a hug.

5 Facts about my character. She had an affair with her lover's brother, who was also a senator. She was murdered for this, and Haunted a man named Nicholas to reveal the truth about her murder and lament her guilt. Her murder was covered up by a fake suicide note. Her murder happened in 1928. She's also known as "Metropolis" or "Love". I will be so astounded if you get this and we will be best friends forever.
