What I would like to say to Procirc Propagandists:

You care more about circumcising infants than you care about the infants themselves, you are prepared to lie about the function of the foreskin and distort the statistics on circumcision, you are obsessed with circumcision as if circumcising every infant somehow validates your own circumcision, though your own torturous screams were never heard nor soothed, your deep psychological pain from your own un-anesthetised circumcisions will never go away even if every foreskin is removed from planet earth, & you do humanity a disservice by perpetuating this practice that has no role to play in the 21st century, go away and don’t come back until you’ve learned and understood normal human anatomy and had a lesson in human rights and ethics.

PS. You are also undoing nearly 30 years of health education about safe sex and wearing condoms by spreading your propaganda that circumcision prevents STI's & HIV, only safe sex & condoms prevent STI's & HIV, your message is a gross distortion of facts and dangerous to public health! 


  1. Well said Ian, I know we;ve discussed these issues before always good to see them in print, your loving wife!!!!

  2. Thanks for this. I've been perusing scholarly peer-reviewed articles on circumcision, and it's frightening how many are blatantly pro-circ and focus on the HIV prevention rate. It's frightening because I know that many people will read a stat like that and not take a moment to critically examine the argument. Many people won't ask themselves, "Is is ethically sound to circumcise boys for a possible 60% reduction in HIV transmission? Why not just use a condom?" I'm horrified that many scientists and doctors are perpetuating this shit and suggesting it as a solution to the African AIDS crisis, etc. -@ApolloForever

  3. Brianne read the letters of reply in the Australian medical journal to the argument that infant circumcision should be used to prevent HIV :
