By John Myers: Brett Johnson said he left his job in Kansas City to hit the road this summer on a 17-city tour to protest against male circumcision as part of the group Bloodstained Men and Their Friends.
Five members of the group were in Duluth on Wednesday, holding signs and waving at passing motorists at the corner of Trinity Road and Miller Trunk Highway near the Miller Hill Mall. Some members of the group have devoted much of their lives to “protecting children and future generations from genital cutting.” Dressed all in white, including white cowboy hats, with red stains splotched on their crotches, the protesters Wednesday drew some waves, honks and puzzled looks from Duluth drivers. Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin, the tissue covering the head of the penis, usually conducted shortly after birth. “This is all volunteer. None of us get paid. We just think this is something that needs to be talked about,” Johnson. “We get a lot of feedback, positive and negative. People honking … but it gets people talking about something no one wants to talk about.”
By Michael Krieger: Today’s post is the final installment of a four part series on the Google memo and the various issues it’s raised regarding our cultural capacity for intelligent debate. I’ve also touched upon the very serious issue of Google’s expanding position as an integral and willing tool of U.S. imperial foreign policy, as well as its defense of oligarchy and status quo thinking at home. Before I get started, I want to make something clear. I am entirely sympathetic to the fact that the Google memo justifiably made many women who work in the tech industry feel uncomfortable and anxious. While I’ve never worked in that field, I worked in the highly aggressive and male-dominated environment of Wall Street for a decade. That sort of culture can definitely make women feel left-out, awkward or worse. I do not deny that such problems exist in an industry dominated by one gender. Unfortunately, that very legitimate issue has become totally swamped in the public mind due to the hysterical, dishonest and illogical reactions by many to the Google memo. Irrespective of what you think of the memo, it’s dangerous and counterproductive to start calling people names rather than engage in calm, intelligent debate.
"They spent a million pounds and they didn't find a rape culture, they found 1.6% had been sexually assaulted using a definition that included everything under the sun including all that regret type stuff, the broadest possible definition. ...40% said it wasn't serious and the whole media is rallying the propaganda line saying this is terrible."
