Today was an event filled day. In the morning I got called "brilliant" by the Only McCain who Matters. In the afternoon my Wife and I had our ultrasound appointment for our second child.
It's a boy!!
Since I am having a boy, I am now confronted with a tough question. Should I circumcise him?
Well, I don't know a whole lot about the subject. I do know that Andrew Sullivan called it "Male Genital Mutilation". I also heard that it may become mandatory under Obamacare. Then, of course, there are the Biblical arguments for circumcision. All of this I knew.
I did remember an episode of Penn & Teller's BullSh!t, but it really wasn't that convincing either way...damn libertarians.
I didn't know where to search or what to search that wouldn't end up taking me to a porn site. NTTAWWT. [That was for you Stacy] Finally I broke down and googled "circumcision, what a parent should know". Apparently some lady named Anne Briggs wrote an entire book about the subject. From what I gather she is against this brutal process, just like Andrew Sullivan. NTTAWWT IYKWIMAITYD. [Again, for Stacy]
My ADD then kicked in and I decided to check on my blog traffic and see what was new in google reader. It was a good traffic day with R.S. McCain linking. Coincedentally he had some new posts up about Trig Truthers.
Ugh...I thought. Not another deranged loony sponsored by Soros and company.
Turns out it appears to be the very same lady who wrote the book on circumcision.
Anne Briggs a.k.a. annieb393 a.k.a Audrey. Trig Truther and Foreskin Friend.
Like I said at the beginning, coincidence is a funny thing.
