It’s amazing what you can run into on a daily walk. Today on 32nd Avenue in Grand Forks I encountered first-hand an anti-circumcision protest group called “Bloodstained Men and their Friends.”
The core group is made up for four young men from places like Boston and California. They are criss-crossing the country on a 17-day mission to bring attention to what they consider to be the dangers of circumcision. (Now that I think of it, 17 days is the same length as President Trump’s “working vacation.” But let’s not read anything into that.) Today, Grand Forks. Tomorrow, Fargo. On each stop they are joined by like-minded locals.
They are handing out information on cards that measure 15 square inches, roughly twice the size of a standard business card. Or, they say, the size of “an adult’s foreskin.”
Here’s a little snippet. “No medical organization in the world recommends infant circumcision.” Here’s another. ” The majority of the world’s men are intact, healthy and happy.”
I have no opinion.
