  1. Yep, how I feel about it. And how most men who have weighed in on forum discussions about this that I've seen have felt. Still not getting any of my future sons circ'd. There's no point, but if it somehow happened anyway (as hospitals have been known to disrespect the wishes of the parents regarding this) I wouldn't freak out and pronounce him "mutilated" or "mangled". Like any procedure it carries risks of infection and accidents... but most of the time, that's simply not the case. I'd be more pissed that the hospital did not respect my wishes or the bodily autonomy of my hypothetical
  2. Yeah, that's no big deal. Thanks mom, for decreasing my sensitivity on my sexual parts for my entire life because you're a fucking moron. I know I shouldn't blow the issue out of proportion though. It really is no big deal. So you'd rather be in pain for the rest of your life while having sex? I'm jsut saying that circumcision and FGM aren't comparable to each other. I'm not even for circumcision and I agree that parents who go along with it are fucking morons, I just think that a lot of "intactivists" try to appropriate the suffering of others when they can still experience sexual
  3. Male and female circumcision are absolutely the same thing. They differ only in degree (of severity). There is very little difference in principle, origins, or common justifications. But saying the experience of one is exactly like the other's is very ignorant and even arrogant. It is not at all okay to say your pain is the exact same as someone else's, when it has far fewer and less severe effects. There is no difference in origins, but there is a HUGE difference in practice and in effect. It's not right that boys who are circumcised go on to have reduced feeling, but comparing it to an
  4. In my experience, women make a much bigger deal out of circumcision than men do. I think this is one of the few times where I've seen it go the other way around. Interesting. I'm against circumcision in the sense that I'm against unnecessary medical procedures that have little or no proven benefit, especially when they're performed on children so young they cannot process what's going on. And without anesthetic? That is barbaric. Newborn boys do have nerve endings there, after all. And the only reason to do it is "tradition" when said tradition started off as a way to prevent masturba
  5. Because anatomically speaking there's far too much distance between the anus and chest cavity to roast anything, let alone a marshmallow. You're better off shoving said marshmallow down the throat.
  6. IT doesn't even have to be vague, just emotional.
  7. Yeah. the good cops made me want to go back a few times and at other times I just couldn't come up with an argument against them. But they're definitely appealing to emotions, and emotions can be hard to fight with logic.
  8. I actually seem to meet way more "good cop" Christians than "bad cop" Christians. I think it's a general cultural tendency to "look on the bright side" rather than something genetic. Some of it could be ingrained, but I think it's just mostly culture. Even the bad cops are ditching their fire-and-brimstone scare tactics for the 'good cop' veneer... they're still out there and still as nasty as ever, they just spout off a bunch of meaningless buzzwords and euphemisms to cover up their hate. The genuine "good cop" Christians tend to be more liberal, and the fake ones tend to be evangelica
  9. Okay, let's tell someone to just roll over and let someone else do something blatantly illegal to him because he's so desperate for a job. WTF? If we let assholes like that get away when the economy is tough, they'll go ahead and try to make it normal when the economy gets better. Because they've already gotten away with it. American workers are already treated badly enough *legally*, let's not let employers get away with bullshit that is already illegal.
  10. True, but it's no more of an option than alien intervention or a giant beanstalk. All questions that are unanswered (so far) don't need to default to the supernatural to fill the knowledge gaps. The god of the gaps argument by any other name... Right, and until we understand, I think an honest position to take is: I don't know. Ignostic. I don't know what is a god means that I don't know yet what is responsible for the process of creation.... That's all. Atheist means I'm so pretty damn sure there is no god...I'll piss off those damn fundies lol and debate on the subject. Which is fu
  11. I think it's absolutely stupid to say "YOU DON'T KNOW FOR SURE" re: whether or not there is a god, while admitting that modern science has all but debunked every damn religious myth that supposedly proves there is a God. It's truly distressing to see fellow atheists fall into the same trap that Christians and other theists have set up for us, that we cannot say "there can't possibly be any way a God can exist." Even atheists must declare themselves agnostic according to the loosest definitions of the terms "theism" and "deity." I know there isn't a God. Why? Because I'm a child of the
  12. The other fact of the matter is... even in this day and age, people can write a book and have whatever name they wish be printed on the cover. Like J.K. Rowling herself. Her real name is Joanne Murray. She has no middle name. Rowling is her birth name (though she was going by that name when she started the series). Why would a Joanne Rowling (later Murray) choose to go by J.K. Rowling? Because publishers thought that boys wouldn't read anything that was obviously written by a woman, and a name with initials in it would make her seem more masculine. So she took on her grandmother's name,
  13. I live with my boyfriend now, with no plans for marriage. I don't feel like I've given anything sacred up, or that I've ruined myself for some unknown future guy. It's very patronizing to tell someone that they will regret doing something that does not necessarily cause any harm. My boyfriend isn't the first person I've had sex with, and I'm not the first person he's had sex with. We don't feel like we've 'cheated' or 'robbed' each other. It's not easy, living together, but living with someone else no matter the relationship never is. And expecting people in their early 20s (like
  14. And not only does this thinking lead to teen pregnancy and widespread STDs, it also leads to wonderful things like relationship abuse and sexual assault. After all, women only matter when men are horny, and then they owe men sex, and if they don't give men sex they're bitches, but if they do give men sex outside of a very specific context they're sluts and therefore worthless. It's a catch-22. And then we teach boys that their penis is some sort of magical tool that can make them god-like, and make women do whatever they want them to do, and that they are owed sex because they're awesome.
  15. Maybe it's just where I'm from then, because if guys had sex before marriage it was no big deal, and they were even cool for it. Of course I stopped attending church altogether when I was 13, and was never all-out fundie. So I stand corrected. But Christianity's teachings on marriage and wifely submission give guys a hell of a lot of power, and based on my church, then all they have to do is wait until they're 18, then marry the first girl who is okay with the idea of fucking them. So it's still bad for women, because then women are never told that men are supposed to please them in bed and
