Babies' Bodily Rights Trump Religious Views on Circumcision

Circumcising young boys on religious grounds amounts to grievous bodily harm, a German court ruled Tuesday in a landmark decision that the Jewish community said trampled on parents' religious rights.

"The body of the child is irreparably and permanently changed by a circumcision," the court said. "This change contravenes the interests of the child to decide later on his religious beliefs."

Somebody get the liquor, let's make a drinking game.

1 shot for every time female genital cutting gets brought up. 1 shot for every time someone gets called a bad parent.

If Elle posts, drain the bottle.

I'm not going to be shy about saying it's about time someone recognized this. Unless medically necessary, it's genital mutilation, plain and simple.

Genital mutilation = close enough for me. Do a shot!

I do realize this is a serious subject, but it's been thrashed out so many times here, and no one ever changes their mind about it.

Would it be boorish of me to participate in this drinking game if I'm barefoot and wearing an LBD?

Only if you're eating a peanut butter sandwich at a wedding at the same time. And posting to this thread with your phone.

**ETA: I'm adding 1 shot for "mutilation" and 1 shot for "hygiene" or "cleanliness."

I realize that. I'd love to have a shot, but I'm afraid I'm all out. :(

2 shots for "HIV", "AIDS" and any thing referencing the child's future sex life.

In honor of the Duggars, shots of pickle juice can be done in lieu of booze.

In honor of lexiloumarie: Drain the bottle each time someone gets scolded for derailing a thread about a Very Serious Issue.

Ohh I do hope to be able to drink tomorrow night (tonight I took a pain pill) so I shall revisit this thread to commence drinking when it is safe for my liver (okay.. more safe for my liver.. safer? Something of that nature!). I do enjoy a good thread about topics like this. It really shows you how newer individuals will be behaving! :dance: :happy-bouncycyan::happy-bouncyred::happy-bouncygreen::happy-bouncymagenta::happy-bouncyblue::happy-bouncymulticolor:

I'm all out of hooch, but I'll supply the popcorn. No peanut butter allowed, and take off your shoes before coming in!

Seriously though, we need a list of topics we've beaten to death already. We never get anywhere in these threads.

Looking for the sherry and will also make popcorn in honor of those who can't drink.

Alcohol burns my stomach. Can I have a Pepsi with my popcorn?

Only if you pour an extra glass as silent offering to Teri Maxwell.

Only if you want Steve Maxwell to appear in your dreams and lecture you on how Pepsi cans pave the road to eternal damnation. But if you're cool with that, go ahead!

**ETA: I love how any mention of Pepsi leads to "insert Maxwell joke here."

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞
