Not only did we get confirmation that Donkey’s book at St. Martin’s is dead and she’ll have to repay her advance, we’ve seen proof that Donkey and Nehi were evicted from the condo next to the OMG! Palace of Fine Arts. The poor roomie didn’t even want to AirBNB her home and found herself scrambling to find a place. Not unlike poor Mary Rambin when Donkey assured her Bravo would be getting them a place in New York. But the network passed on (Sh)It Girls and Mare Mare Beach Hair found herself homeless. Nothing has changed.
You’d think Donkey would regroup, get her shit together and stop posting humblebrags and SJW nonsense, especially since even Rain has seen the cracks in the facade, but no, time to argue about circumcision from the crackpot’s perspective with your high school boyfriend and his lovely wife.
A recap of the SJW’s latest crusade, even more ridiculous than anti-vaxxing:
A few years back scientists using a plastibell and a sterilized obsidian blade performed a circumcision in an MRI machine to monitor the baby’s brain. They took several readings prior to establish a baseline. The procedure caused immense pain, so much it made PERMANENT changes to his brain. Subsequent scans over the next days, weeks, months and even a year, the brain never returned to the baseline.
Circumcision trauma in infancy or early childhood might carry an increased risk of serious neurodevelopmental and psychological consequences and some studies also claim the practice doubles the risk of autism; it’s due time we ban this barbaric practice. We have evidence it’s so painful it not only rewires the brain but kills babies more often than car accidents or SIDS.
Circumcision…get the facts.
Old Boyfriend: There is no fucking way circumcision causes autism.
Julia Allison: Not the point. The point is that it is socially accepted GENITAL MUTILATION, and I can’t believe we still do it. So f–ked up.
Old Boyfriend: It is, in fact, what the post you shared says. Right there, in the text. And that is so fucking obviously false (and said with a nonsense numerical tag to seize a false claim to scientific validity) that it casts all its other pseudo-scientific claims (made without any cites, identifying information, or footnotes) into doubt. They are also implausible – like the claim that a real study with n=1 was done without anesthetizing a kid, without a control, and with an obsidian blade of all fucking things (what is this, a Meso-American human sacrifice)? Who would consent to such a thing?
Shall we take this as official renunciation of your claim to Jew-hood? Because the reason circumcision is legal – aside from the fact that there is no significant evidence that it causes harm and a towering pile of evidence that it reduces numerous health risks – is that it is the way Jews sanctify their covenant with God (for 6,800 years), and banning it without a compelling state interest would be a violation of the 1st Amendment.
Old Boyfriend’s Wife: Circumcision doesn’t cause autism but it can help reduce the spread of AIDS.
Julia Allison: I don’t believe that is a great argument for genital mutiliation.
Old Boyfriend’s Wife: Then post a compelling argument that it’s genital mutilation rather to some whack a loon who says circumcision causes autism and kills more babies than car accidents.
Also I do think a 60% reduction in Hiv risk (particularly in high risk countries) is a compelling, nay great, argument for circumcision. I’m not saying it should be mandatory, but it’s certainly a compelling reason to make this choice. Whatever pain it causes or minimal loss of sexual stimulation (and I’m guessing we disagree about the extent of either of those), I’m willing to put my money on having AIDS (particularly if you’re not rich with great access to health care) is way, way worse.
No response, Donkey? Forget all those years at New Trier honing your debate skills? Not even “I 100% agree with you” because you lack the intellectual chops to defend your position?
Words of advice: I wouldn’t alienate any more friends, especially those with actual jobs and I.Q.’s over 50. Folks in Chicago are keeping their distance. Hell, even the woos are bored with your antics, and you’ve been scraping the bottom of the barrel for some time.
