I talk with a Christian about her abortion as well as her theology, but also about the crazy religious men she has dated and married and all their religious guilt and manipulation. Of course we talk about masturbation as well.
This is a surprising topic on many levels. On the surface it seems a simple topic, underneath it deals with medical incompetence, regaining sexual pleasure, bodily autonomy, mothers making choices about their boys, and so much more. I regret that we even have to have this episode, it shouldn’t even be a discussion. But it is in our culture.
Male circumcision is seldom discussed and the damage to men has not been acknowledged. Its time for seculars to challenge the myths and let men openly discuss their feelings, if they were affected by this barbaric and unnecessary practice.
