I've been an active member of cf_hardcore for some time, a debate about which is better "cut or uncut" pulled me in. With the advances the MGM Bill (a bill [proposed law] which will completely outlaw circumcision in the United States for anyone under 18 years of age) has made in the past few months, I thought it would be a fun place to debate some of the issues behind the MGM Bill. Can you say "flame on!"?
It's simply amazing what happens when a proposed LAW is put on the agenda that threatens "the old ways" (whether Jewish or not!) Proof again that people resist change.
Thanks to ONE person in the group, tsorton, who wrote:
Wow, we finally hit a new level of hypocrisy.
Anyone who supports that bill is:
a) anti-semit, because no other religion but Judaism's requires breeders to mutilate their larvae for the glory of the gawd;
b) if not anti-semit then religiously intolerant arsehole (or both) because, you know, it's gazillion years old tradition and an "important religious ritual" and therefore it is good;
c) male chauvinist - because there is nothing wrong with mutilating male larvae (see above) and talking about it makes female circumcision less barbaric and is an attack on women (best WTF argument I have ever seen);
d) prejudiced against those fine folks who believe it's OK to mutilate male larvae because "it's aesthetically more pleasing" and "*I* like it that way";
Also, apparently it's OK to post news articles/blogs/etc about IDWIYO as long as it has nothing to do with circumcision, because (see all of the above).
