Response to maquisard (Reply #57)

Sat Jan 12, 2013, 07:06 PM

61. You are falsely accusing me.

I have stated that I agree that I would not consent to having a circ done with this technique.

The OP was about the technical details of one step of the procedure, and that parents have a right to be warned about it. And I completely agree with this.

But I have also chosen to stamp up to the barrage of thread-jacking attempts to equate circumcision to "mutilation". And for this I have been shouted down by anti-circ folks who paint the entire procedure as some sort of travesty using quite a broad brush because of this one detail. People who describe the practice of circ in general as sick, antiquated, valueless, indefensible, disgusting, somehow relating to pedophilia, victimizing, psychicly damaging, ...

So you tell me. Am I the one being discourteous? Have I disparaged anyone here? Are any of my posts alert-worthy? Because from where I sit, there has been nothing but a dog pile against me. I think I do have a right to call out thread jacking. And I think I've been a hell of a lot more courteous than most of the people I am replying to.

(Of course, I don't want to use a broad brush here -- there have certainly been some people who have disagreed with me while remaining civil, and I thank them for it.)
