Ugh

Can we seriously never have a conversation (on the internet or in a group of people in person) about female genital mutilation/cutting/circumcision without SOME fool-ass-fool jumping in with "But what about male circumcision?!" Stop it. Actually, this applies across the board to all conversations about terrible things that happen to women. Is it really so frightening that sometimes we take a few minutes to not talk about dudes and/or their penises?

  1. instead of getting angry, why don't you take a few deep breaths and educate them on relativism, then they will never poison a conversation again :)

  2. Haha oh Tara, thank you. The deep breaths are something I'm working on, as always.

  3. No. Penises must dominate all conversations. I think they start teaching that in Kindergarten or something like that.
