“Circumcision is an assault and we need to ‘stop the chop’, it should be a baby’s right to choose,” said lead activist Dick Harry during a protest in Tennessee. “When they grow up they should be able to decide what they want their penis to look like – a ‘Rocket Ship’ or a ‘Darth Vader Helmet’. The choice should be theirs.” Harry also added that the myths about uncircumcised genitalia are absolutely not true. “It doesn’t smell like rotten cheese if you teach the young men how to clean it right. Just give them the chance and stop this mutilation!”
“When it’s not erect, an uncircumcised penis looks kind of like the sleeve of a sweater when you pull your hand inside of it – the skin of the penis shaft extends over the head, rather than ending at the head, like it does with circumcised guys,” said Lance Shaft, activist against circumcision. “Just pull it back and wash under it. That’s all we’re asking. If you keep it clean, it shouldn’t be any smellier than anyone else’s junk. For the love of God, give these babies a chance! #HandsUpDontChop“
These activists, who are protesting in blood-stained jumpsuits, say young boys should have the choice of being circumcised when they turn 18. The anti-circumcision group is asking for this medical procedure to be illegal and listed as a crime. The group says that circumcision causes huge suffering, sometimes leads to death, and it ruins men’s lives. They also claim that it removes over 90% of the nerve bearing flesh of the penis. “All we are asking for is that human beings stop mutilating little boys. Baby boys cannot give their consent and they need to leave the healthy flesh alone! It’s the right thing to do!” They are asking you to spread the hashtag #HealthyRocketShips and #HandsUpDontChop to help raise awareness.
