There is an article that was published a few months ago about how circumcision could be a cause of Autism. If you are easily offended, uneasy, or uncomfortable with this subject, feel free to write in to my blog…OR better yet, just exit out of it. OK. Here is the Honest-to-God truth of the matter with me. I am an intactivist, meaning I am against circumcision. No other country in the world–apart from some countries in the Middle East–or religion (except Judaism) is as obsessed with mutilating males as the United States. Again, if you disagree with me…simply X out of this page or write into my blog. The article stated that if you are circumcised, you more than likely have Autism and are more likely to develop PTSD. I am living proof that this is bullshit. Here’s where it gets uncomfortable. I wasn’t circumcised until I was 17 years old. I was diagnosed with Autism when I was 7 years old. I only mention this to help prove my point. Also what about women who have Autism? In America, we don’t cut off parts of girls’ vaginas and there are plenty of women out there in the USA with Autism. I am dating one. My final thought on the subject and final thought for this post is this: Unless it is for religious reasons, please reconsider. Let them decide. Their body, their choice. Thanks for reading and feel free to comment.
