I stayed up too late last night posting on an anti-RIC FB page. I didn't think I was arguing, but the moderator seemed to think it was. The general gist is that they posted a link to a poll someone had made saying 'Do you prefer the look of a circumcised or uncircumcised penis?'. I thought that was pretty awful. If you assume that most people who oppose circumcision consider it to be mutilation, and most people who are pro-circumcision consider the foreskin to be a birth defect, HOW is it fair to claim one or the other is ugly? Change the word circumcision to 'cleft lip' (as an example of a birth defect, talking merely of looks), and you've just given your opinion on how ugly a person is. Nice. Not only that, but it's hypocritical for someone anti-RIC to talk about preference of how it looks, because, when someone says they did it for aesthetic reasons (preference, to look like Dad etc), everybody's all over it saying "That's a terrible reason to do it". So what. The. Shit.
Anyway, they said they'll continue to post links to such polls. Yes, yes, let's call all men ugly because we have differing opinions. UGH!
