"When did ignorance become a point of view?"
Many of you are familiar with Brian Morris. He is a staunch pro-cutting man with a deep belief in the need to circumcise all baby boys. He and his close companions routinely publish false claims via news articles, in various internet forums, and on their websites.
This first video is a parody of this campaign to circumcise the world. It uses a short but powerful scene from the Academy Award nominated movie, "Downfall" (Der Unterang, 2004). [Warning: There are curse words that flash on the screen.] The RACP (Royal Australasian College of Physicians) has refuted Morris' circumcision claims, and has stated that the decision to remain intact, or to cut or modify one's own genitals, should be left to a young man to decide once he reaches an age of consent.
Please beware of Morris' outlandish fabrications on his websites and in internet posts. Myths are commonly couched in ways that at first seem to be research-based. The CDC, AAP, RACP and other medical groups are frequently misquoted. The majority of those who have circumcised their son(s) after "researching" circumcision quote Morris' sites and claims as their "research material." Any fascination with cutting baby boys' penises is something we need to be aware of in this day and age when information is readily shared via the internet - information that often includes myths and misconceptions pushed by those involved in circumfetish circles.
It should be noted that Brian Morris' website links to 8 circumfetish websites, and 7 websites that sell devices to perform circumcision surgery on your own. He is a member of the Gilgal Society, a group that publishes circumcision pornography, including circumcision fan-fiction stories of children being given wine and asked to masturbate while being circumcised.[3-4] If there is one site you should not be referencing in your attempt to thoroughly research the prepuce, intact care, and circumcision, it is Morris'.
