Because Sometimes More is More
I’ve seen something from people on both sides of this issue that really upsets me — body shaming. It is one thing to say that an uncircumcised penis is natural. It is. It’s another to say that a circumcised penis is weird or ugly. The same goes for the other side. Just because our culture teaches that circumcised penises are ‘normal’ does not make it okay to say that uncircumcised penises are disgusting or gross. Whether a guy’s penis is cut or uncut was probably not even his choice. He shouldn’t be made to feel bad about it. Furthermore, I don’t understand why people feel the need to voice an opinion on it unless they’re in an intimate relationship with the guy. It’s one thing to say, This is what I’m used to or This is what’s common in my culture. It’s another to use language that is judgmental.
This is an important concern and I’d be interested in seeing instances of this brought to my attention, especially if I’m the guilty party.
