Ban on Circumcision in San Francisco?

From the San Francisco Examiner

After the courageous victory of banning Happy Meals in San Francisco, there is now a proposed ballot measure to ban circumcision. It is highly unlikely that this measure will pass, but it is an indication of how far out of the mainstream the city of “Nanny Franny” really is.

A proposed ballot measure for the November 2011 ballot – when voters will be electing the San Francisco’s next mayor – would amend The City’s police code “to make it a misdemeanor to circumcise, excise, cut or mutilate the foreskin, testicle or penis of another person who has not attained the age of 18.”

    With their calculated, deceptive rhetoric, the perpetrators of this atrocity attempt to draw links between an obvious horror and positive abstractions such as “tradition,” “religion,” “science,” “medicine,” and “hygiene.” The documents and essays on, however, expose this charade and show what the sexual mutilation of children is really about: envy, lust, hatred, male sexual rivalry, sadism, criminal psychopathology, desperation, ruthlessness, power, control, oppression, violence, contempt for humanity, and greed.

    It is about time that more human rights activists followed this lead and refused to play the circumcisers’ game of evading the real issues. Circumcision is not really about medicine or public health. Circumcision is not really about preventing or curing any disease. Circumcisers are not mistaken in their medical beliefs; they are lying. Circumcision advocacy is really about weaving a convincing network of lies to deflect the attention of the public and the criminal justice system from the frightening truth that circumcisers are really criminally deranged, psychotic, knife-wielding maniacs driven by psychopathic obsessions and compulsions that most people could never understand.

      And here I thought circumcision was just a minor surgical procedure, originally done for health reasons which then became a religious ritual. Who knew they were all criminally deranged, psychotic, knife-wielding maniacs intent on mutilating children? You sure woke me up with such a rational screed. However, I think you left out penis envy which may be a root cause of much of this derangement.

    Wow, if I didn’t think those on the left coast were crazy before (and I did), I do now!
