Sometimes I read news stories on the internet and just ask myself, what is wrong with people.
I read a story earlier this year about a guy in San Francisco who wants to ban circumcisions on males under the age of 18. His reasons are that it is cruel, painful (I don’t remember since I was a baby), and leads to sexual dysfunction (on a side note I have been cut and I have ZERO problems at all with “performance”). And to get the ball rolling on his movement, he had to gather 7,000 signatures to have his idea put on the ballot for a vote before the entire city.
Just last week I read an update to the original story in which the guy in San Francisco has gotten the required 7,000 signatures needed to get it put on the ballot. So sometime in the near future during the next election in San Francisco, the voters will decide whether or not to ban circumcision. If the measure passes in the election, it would make circumcision illegal (a misdemeanor) and punishable by a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail.
Now everyone is entitled to their opinion, I mean my blog is full of all my opinions in and of itself but I have to say something about this.
I can understand wanting to save all of the penises in the world from cutting, but aren’t there more pressing issues facing San Francisco? Issues like crime, illegal immigrants, drug use, homelessness, illiteracy, suicide, how bad the 49ers suck, and budget shortfalls all seem like things that are more important issues than circumcision. How about solving all of those problems before taking up this issue?
Never mind the fact that is not even a nationwide effort, if passed it would only be law in San Francisco. People who still want to have their son cut just simply have to drive across the bay to Oakland to have the procedure done.
Now I am not for or against this measure, but it just seems silly to me since San Francisco has a lot of other issues and problems that should be fixed/adressed before messing with dicks. Even more silly considering you can just drive to another city to have it done outside of San Francisco.
I wonder if this passes and the city has to implement the law, what will they call the poor sap that has to go around check on this. What will his job title be? Inspector Foreskin?
