Icky Bits

I got into it again at work today with people who for purely cosmetic reasons, think it's cool to cut baby boy's penises. Today it wasn't even close to funny and I'm sure I've earned myself a new label.

Here's the newly minted worldview of mine at work, though (and hey, world wide web, this is a big, hardcore, only said it to myself piece of thought torture. So feel privileged): I was fighting the whole time, the whole time these compassionate, committed healthcare professionals were flippantly discussing slicing off parts of babies... I was fighting the gut wrenching, nagging bitch of a notion that if we had circumcised Lincoln, he wouldn't be different in yet another way than all the "normal" boys in the world.
