I Left My Hurt in San Francisco

Golden Gate BridgeI hate to get political.  I really do.  I think it’s a conversation that rarely ends well when you debate someone with the polar opposite opinion that you hold dear.  It ends not as a meeting of the minds, but rather two strong willed people parting company, muttering “idiot”, “moron” or “dickweed”  (or maybe that’s just me muttering “dickweed”)  Anyway, it is a part of life, and I’m nothing if not an advocate of current event awareness.  Hence, one would think that a political thought might occasionally have to pass through here. And away we go!

This is a copy and paste from The New York Times.  It is an Associated Press article published on May 18, 2011:

“A group seeking to ban the circumcision of male children in San Francisco has succeeded in getting the measure on the November ballot.”


Fisherman's WharfAre you freakin’ kidding me?  Steven and I were in San Francisco for a 2 week vacation in 2009.  We had a blast, but it was different!  A friend there has back problems.  She has a medical marijuana card.  They sell it like Advil.  That’s legal.  We saw people smoking pot waiting at the bus stop.  That is legal.

There are tattoo shops where you can walk in, get inked, have your nipples pierced and have holes the size of hub caps stretched into your ears.  That is legal.  At Fisherman’s Wharf, I saw 2 not-so-pretty girls sucking face with each other, 2 way-too-pretty guys pawing and playing grabby-ass with each other and an old man making out with his Schnauzer.  That was gross, but apparently legal.

So again, are you freakin’ kidding me?  Steven is all up in arms about this.  According to his take on a specific Bible passage, he will expound on the belief that males be circumcised as homage to God.  (We’ve covered the differences in our interpretation of God, Christianity and Bible passages in past posts, so do your history homework – reading is FUNdamental).  As a Catholic schooled gal, I’m not being irreverent when I say homage – schmomage.  An uncircumcised schlong is just ewwww-ie.

View from FairmontI can’t say that I’ve seen THAT many wieners in my life time, but aren’t most American men circumcised?  Why would this even come up?  Like San Francisco isn’t nutty enough!  Now they are going to try to pass a law making it illegal to do a little snip-nip when a baby boy is napping and his junk is the size of a pig in a blanket.  Much better to wait until he’s 18, when he’s old enough to realize how much that chop-chop is going to hurt.  And by the way, if all went well during puberty, this should no longer be a nip-snip.  I hope Obama-care covers fillet man-dong!

Steven has been through the nastiest of chemotherapy.  We always say a day without chemo is a great day.  Unless you just turned 18 in San Francisco.  Suddenly chemo doesn’t sound so bad.

Nut jobs.  (I mean the Californians!)
