Unrepresented Voices in Circumcision
by: Ryan McAllister
Please share your experience below without responding to other comments.
The bioethics discourse around neonatal circumcision rarely includes the perspectives of the infant, parents with regret, adults who dissent, or conscientious objectors. Yet, these narratives are among the most telling and important to consider.
Presented in October 2012 at the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities Conference. At that conference I was stunned by the number of obstetricians who came up to me and said that they don't like circumcisions, but would keep on doing them because their departments have to offer as many services as possible to be competitive. I'm deeply saddened to hear so clearly from professionals that ethics cannot rise to be their top concern.
Bringing Unrepresented Voices into the Discussion:
Parental Regret, Survivor Distress, and Practitioner Ambivalence toward Neonatal Circumcision
Ryan McAlister, PhD
Assistant Research Professor, Physics and Oncology
Created in cooperation with Kira Antinuk and James Loewen.
Most of the unabridged interviews used in this talk are available here:
A longer talk "Circumcision: an Elephant in the Hospital" on the science and anthropology of circumcision can be found here:
The survey on circumcision harm can be found at:
This presentation explores these under-represented perspectives through fieldwork, survey, and literature review. Results include:
For parents: regret following the procedure, sentiments toward their growing or adult children, intra-couple disagreement, and diverse attitudes among circumcised male parents.
For adult men: perceived impact of their own neonatal circumcision on their adult sexuality, distrust of physicians and the medical establishment, conflicting attitudes and feelings towards parent(s) involved in the decision, and the attitudes of non-circumcised men about the procedure.
For practitioners: conflicted attitudes among some practitioners who both perform the procedure and hold reservations, a growing group of conscientious objectors, including practitioners who previously performed the practice, and the attitudes of practitioner-parents.
The public and academic discussions about neonatal circumcision are especially complex because of the involvement of a number of related frames, including culture, religion, sexuality, and gender, because of the elective nature of the surgery, and because of the contested nature of the potential benefits of the procedure. Including the under-represented voices of those who have experienced the procedure informs and enriches the discussion of neonatal circumcision by expanding the scope beyond the moment of the procedure.
As an issue within medical ethics as well as in the larger social discourse, examining neonatal circumcision gives us the opportunity to more completely frame discussions around medical procedures performed on the very young.
Circumcision, Is it Quranic?
by: Youssef Abdalla
Circumcision was a covenant from God to Abraham (Genesis 17:10-14)
Currently it has become one of the most important religious rites of the present day Muslim.
However,the question is, did God Almighty decree circumcision in the Quran?
The short answer is no because there is no mention of circumcision in the whole Quran at all! Here is why:
Circumcision is scrutinized in the NT and deemed as being of no value if one doesn't observe the law! Thus if one is circumcized and breaks the law, his circumcision is Nullified and made into uncircumcision! Conversely, if one is Uncircumsized, and keeps the law, his uncircumsicion is made circummcision! (Romans 2:25-26)
This might still be shocking news to some conservative people, but when one considers how God nullified the Sabbath in the Quran (Which is one of the original 10 commandments), the nullification of circumcision becomes more of a mellow news.
Furthermore, God Almighty states that he differentiated us and decreed for us different laws and rites (Quran 5:48) and that the Quran 'authenticates' and 'supercedes' all previous scriptures (Quran 5:48). Thus if God Almighty wanted to stipulate on us circumcision, he would have included it in his Quran, wherein he states "nothing has been left out of the book" (Quran 6:38). "Shall I seek other than God as a source of law, when He revealed to you this fully detailed book?..." (Quran 6:114) "nothing has been left out of the book" (Quran 6:38).
Real Fairies I caught on my security camera! NO...
by: RS Johnson
My husband just hooked up a security camera to the garage. I was checking the playback & saw this video. It appears to be a cat (bottom right tree limb) chasing fairies. At 1:17 u see one go across off to the right & at 1:24 u see one come right up the front middle. If u pause it u can really see it good. Idk, maybe just bugs, but it looks like fairies. The one at 1:17, u can actually see it pause in mid-air and 'push-off' with its legs.

REAL FAIRIES HADAS DE LAS FLORES THE NAREE PON ...
by: Mary Jane Nixon
The Naree Pon in Thailand is a legend that has been gaining a lot of credibility.
They are creatures that are half plant and half animal; they are said to have a small feminine form which makes it easy for them to blend in with the vegetation that surrounds them in the forests of Thailand. The reason they are becoming so credible
is because a Thai temple believes to have two of these creatures of which they place
Naree Pon significa en tailandés "Mujer en Flor, Mujer Flor o Flor de Mujer".
A unos 150 kilómetros al Norte de Bangkok hay un monasterio budista que exhibe
dos de estas "Mujeres en Flor". Fueron capturadas en un árbol por monjes budistas
Se refiere a una leyenda budista sobre cierto tipo de hadas asociadas a una hierba
o vaina que produce la flor Pon (Nepthys hawthoren). La flor es única de Tailandia.

Mutilación genital femenina: la tradición contra la vida.
Programa de televisión.
Fecha de emisión: 29-04-2011
Fecha de reemisión: 13-07-2012
Duración: 25' 48''
La mutilación genital femenina sigue siendo una práctica habitual para más de 70 millones de mujeres en el mundo. Además de África y el Yemen, cuya población femenina es la más vulnerable, las cifras de mujeres circuncidadas están aumentando también en Europa, Australia, Canadá y los Estados Unidos, a causa de la inmigración procedente de África y Asia Sud-occidental.
La también conocida como ablación, supone la extirpación total o parcial de los genitales externos de las niñas, que padecerán durante toda su vida problemas de salud irreversibles. Esta práctica está radicalmente conectada con la situación de discriminación y desigualdad que vive la mujer a nivel mundial.

French EJP Members Discuss Circumcision Ban, Fi...
French members of the European Jewish Parliament held an informal meeting this evening, third of July, to talk about topics such as circumcision, foreign affairs, education and youth. The goal of this meeting was also to get to know each other a bit better and to let everybody give their own points of view about European Judaism. The 5 French members of the European Jewish Parliament who held this informal meeting form a diverse group of religious, secular, young and older persons. They talked about some of the most pressing issues such as anti-semitism and religious identity. They all joined the EJP platform to share information and to use it effectively in order to create a better environment for Jews in Europe.
Representing the European Jewish community means creating bridges between Jewish people of different cultures under one identity called Europe. The EJP members are all aware that they need to work closely together to create a true cohesion across Western, Central and Eastern Europe. Different Jewish cultures do not mean different interests. This one of the reasons why the French members of the EJP wanted to talk about different European issues: to be able to suggest different solutions at a European level during the next general session of the European Jewish Parliament.
The European Jewish Parliament is divided in different committees. Three committees were represented at the informal meeting of French EJP members: « foreign affairs », « fight against anti-semitism » and « students and young professionals ». Each committee developed its work in progress and the issues its members would like to resolve in the coming future. This meeting led to a brainstorming session which gave instructive results on Judaism as a whole. This meeting was the first one between French members of the European Jewish Parliament but many more are to be expected as the persons attending it were quite enthusiastic about the exchange they had.
