Men's Health, July-August 1998

The July-August 1998 issue of the American edition of Men's Health ("Did Circumcision Ruin Your Sex Life?" in the cover's lower left corner) contains a landmark article, "Separated At Birth," by Mark Jenkins, and six horrifying photographs by Bill Emory.

Notice the baby's splayed toes in the photograph on pages 130-131. Look at his face!

No, these photographs were not taken at a concentration camp in Auschwitz. They were taken at a hospital in the United States of America. This is how most males born in the U.S. today are welcomed into the world: having their penises tortured, mutilated, crippled and disfigured for life.

The compulsion of some victims of this tragedy to make their own mutilation seem normal, to universalize their mutilation by inflicting it on others, or to forestall their exposure as instigators and perpetrators of sexual atrocities (and the backlash of retaliation, reprisals, revenge and retribution that will inevitably follow), is so overwhelming that even in the face of lawsuits and scandal, they literally cannot stop themselves from mutilating others.

They often choose professions that provide them with a steady supply of unwitting victims. Some prefer adults. Some prefer children. Some prefer babies. (See "Recreational/Erotic/Fetish Circumcision" and "I'm going to cut your foreskin off, little boy.")

Parents who want to protect their children from these compulsive mutilators posing as healers or holy men should be warned to not let their normal, intact male child out of their sight even one moment with any medical doctor, nurse or other "health care provider" in the U.S. they are are not absolutely positive they can trust.

Parents should also be warned that the marketing of foreskins stolen from human babies is a multi-million-dollar-a-year industry in the U.S. (See "Foreskins For Sale" and "Medical Journal Articles Documenting the Use of Human Foreskins in Medical, Pharmaceutical, and Other Commercial Enterprises.")

The entire "medical" database in the U.S. about the foreskin and circumcision has been corrupted by superstition, myths, false information, cover-ups and lies. The chances of getting accurate information about the foreskin and circumcision from a medical doctor in the U.S. are almost zero. Most are ignorant, in denial, afraid of "offending" someone, or silenced by their own humiliation.

The fact that one must go outside the medical profession to get accurate information about an amputation performed on the penises of more than 3,000 babies in this country every day by members of the medical profession, shows how very successful the perpetrators of this atrocity, in collusion with and abetted by the media, have been in marketing and selling it to a trusting, unsuspecting public.

One day we will have laws to protect children from predators who would take knives, clamps and electrocautery guns to their sex organs. Until then, parents have to protect their children as best they can.

The fastest place to get the facts that make informed parents say no to circumcisers is the Internet. (See "Links to Information on the World Wide Web.")
