"Meathead"



"Let him be"

  ( < click to play music)


When I find myself with circumcisers
Angry and confronting me,
I try speaking words of wisdom - let him be.
And when they speak their dark myths
While they're standing right in front of me
I try speaking words of wisdom - let him be.

Let him be, let him be.
I whisper words of wisdom - let him be.

And when the hard-hearted people
Take the time to try to see,
There's a simple answer - let him be.
For though they may be guarded,
There is still a chance that they'll agree
There's a simple answer - let him be.

Let him be, let him be,
Let him be, oh, let him be.
There's a simple answer - let him be.

And though their thoughts seem cloudy
There is still a light for all to see
Shine truth until tomorrow - let him be.
Please wake up to the sound of reason,
Mother, Father, come to see
And speak those words of wisdom - let him be.

Let him be, let him be.
There's a simple answer - let him be.
Let him be, let him be.
Yes, whisper words of wisdom, let him be...

Parents Are Sending Their American Daughters Abroad for “Vacation Cutting”

"Because of the way female circumcision deliberately injures sexual response and can cause long-term health problems, it's all too tempting to treat it as categorically different than the *far  less invasive (and far more familiar) custom of male circumcision. However, in doing so, it's easy to forget that people circumcise girls for basically the same reason they circumcise boys: Because that's how it's always been done, and because, in many cultures, uncut genitals look weird to most neighbors."
