… There are issues offered by proponents of ritual child circumcision that deserve to be taken seriously. Asking people to let go of something they intensely value is asking them to bear costs, even if it should be clear that avoiding objective harm to the child must be stressed more. I intend to write more on them in the near future.
I’m working on that post. I want it to be as honest and clear as it can be.
In the meantime I know of at least one response to that. Lilli at Moralogous offered a thoughtful treatment of the issue. I like it because it’s not the approach I’m writing. The different perspective is useful in encouraging debate and consideration of the many aspects involved in circumcision.
Anyway, I haven’t forgotten.
