This is a view of McGill as I walk back from Hillel. Hillel is a Jewish Youth Group. I helped my friend Alex, President of Hillel, in his failed run for student-body president last year. I did some good work and he likes me, so he mentioned me for this Hillel Web Design job. Hillel.ca looks rather boring, I think I could do something with it. I thought I straight had the job but I guess it was an interview. They said I was more involved in the Jewish community than the Jews they’d interviewed. Probably true… Montreal Jews are awesome, and they’re probably the most vibrant English speaking community here. The Israel thing might get me in Political shit later, tell me what you think Tha. Whatever. I support Israel and I support Palestine, and people who hate on either can eat a dick… speaking of…
The guy interviewing me jokingly asked me if I was circumcised. It wasn’t an debate I had any interest in winning at that time or with that audience, but now, no offense, but circumcision is bullshit. It’s cutting off a natural part of your body. The arguments they gave me were cleanliness, but that’s bullshit, just wash your dick. Everybody should wash, if you’re getting circumcised to avoid washing that’s just dumb. The other argument he gave was that there was some tribe in Africa which had a lower rate of HIV cause they were circumcised, but I’ve seen those studies and they’re fundamentally flawed. Circumcision is not any sort of protection against AIDS. Having sex with someone who’s circumcised is not safe-sex by any stretch of the imagination. Those studies are statistical garbage. Furthermore,
“No national medical orginization in the world has ever promoted routine infant male circumcision for medical reasons. Here are some links to statements of various medical organizations:
–Canadian Paediatric Society, 1996: “Circumcision of newborns should not be routinely performed.”
–American Academy of Pediatrics, 1999: “…the benefits are not significant enough for the AAP to recommend circumcision as a routine procedure.”
The AAP statement is flawed too, like most Law coming out the Etats these days. Medical Ethics stipulate that physicians should not perform surgery unless medically necessary. Performing surgery that lacks significant benefits without consent is bullis.
And don’t give me no shit about how uncircumcised penises are ugly. I don’t mean to be rude or inappropriate, but I like my dick. Circumcision is not a cosmetic surgery. It makes your dick smaller.
I’m all against unnecessary surgery, eg, please don’t cut off any part any part of my body unless you have to. And please keep sharp objects the fuck away from my dick. During circumcision,
“part of the penis is first ripped from the underlying tissue, crushed with a clamp, and then amputated” (DrGreene.com)
What! Babies aren’t even strong enough to take a general anasthetic, so they get a topical, if at all. And then they cut off the tip of your dick! With a topical? Fuck that. With a topical babies still feel moderate pain (and if you’ve felt ‘moderate pain’ you know that it fucking hurts). And don’t tell me babies don’t feel pain, I’s taken Child Development. Shit, they get mad… “Circumcised babies are unavailable for cuddling or bonding for 24 hours” (Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, 1984; 5:246)… which means their fucking pissed that you cut up their dick! And the Pediatrics Associations tell you that it’s not healthy. So why would you cut up a baby?
The only argument I accept for circumcision is that it’s religious, and you’re not really going to change that. It is not a health issue. Ask any Pediatrics Association.
This is how I feel about myself and any theoretical kids of mine. Every parent should do the research, even though it’s fairly obvious. Anyways, I’m quite happy with my dick.
So they wouldn’t give the job. Nah, I’m fucking with you. I guess they’ll call me. Whatever whatever. I have an interview with the Student Society of McGill (SSMU) tomorrow to look at their suckass website. Girl wants a CV so I gots to do that. Think I’ll take a nap. I feel like apologizing for letting the world know about my dick, but fuck that. It’s human.
