Russell Crowe: ‘Stop Cutting Baby Penis’

June 10th, 2011 // 219 Comments

“GIVE ME BACK MY SON(‘S FORESKIN)!”

Apparently Tracy Morgan and Russell Crowe decided to star in a buddy comedy without telling anybody because while Tracy handled the gays, Russell gladiated the Jews this morning by tweeting and simultaneously outing himself as an Anne Geddes fan:

Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect

He later added, “wasn’t intending offense, certainly wasn’t intending to provide fodder for lazy journalists. I can’t appologize [sic] for my heartfelt belief,” which is when I’ll assume his publicist called because the circumcision tweet magically disappeared followed by that apology he said he couldn’t make:

- This is a great forum for communication,I,like any human have my opinions and you all have yours, thank you for trusting me with them
- I have a deep and abiding love for all people of all nationalities, I’m very sorry that I have said things on here that have caused distress
- My personal beliefs aside I realize that some will interpret this debate as me mocking the rituals and traditions of others. I am very sorry

Anyone else disappointed this story didn’t end with Russell Crowe chucking a phone at a rabbi? What happened to that guy? “Anne Geddes says Shalom.” *WHIP-PANG*

  1. JungleRed

    And, btw, you religious tards, baby circumcision is going the way of foot binding and vinyl records. You’re on the wrong side of history on this.

  2. me

    This whole argument is like the ones they had back in the day about the world being flat or sacrificing first born children. Someday people are going to freak that parents would sever skin from baby penises. Little by little we are evolving…very little by little.

  3. waka

    It is barbaric. I am circumsized and I like my dick. At the end of the day though, no one sane should have okayed genital mutilation. Not for the sake of some delusion or “because everyone else does it”. Damn Americans are stupid.

  4. one legged

    jews want to be known as the victim

    even though they make DOUBLE the money of any other American

    ..jews are all liars too..

    and this story was stupid shit. even tmz dude says he’s allowed to think what he wants and not be called anti semantic ……

  5. Burt

    The hygiene argument is a fallacious and disingenuous one. In the United States, circumcision became popular due to the climate of negative attitudes towards sex in the early 20th century. The surgery gained popularity because Christian doctors felt it prevented “self-abuse”.

    • Burt

      Oh, and here in South Korea they perform the surgery when the kids are 12 (the practice didn’t really exist until after it became a US protectorate after WW2 (yes, those damned Christian doctors again). How do parents convince their kids to go along with it? They lie. They tell them it will make it grow longer (as if puberty wouldn’t happen without circumcision).

  6. Jewish American Scholar Leonard Glick speaks out AGAINST forced circumcision of all chldren.

  7. I am genitally cut and hate it like 200,000 other men restoring their foreskin to undo some of the damage and sexual diminishment of genital cutting: http://www.tlctugger.com We would have said NO to having our penises being genitally mutilated against our will.

    Keep your kids intact all the info you need: http://www.WholeNetwork.org Doctors Oppose it: http://www.DoctorsOpposingCircumcision.org Jews oppose it http://www.JewsAgainstCircumcision.org

  8. Your religious freedom ends where my body and my human rights begin under constitution, UN, and the 14th amendment of equal protection whereas Female genital mutilation is banned so boys are equally protected . There is no religious exemption for female circumcision.

    Jews Against Circ Bris shalom requires no cutting and my Jewish friends kept their kids intact: http://www.JewsAgainstCircumcision.org

    -No medical organization in the WORLD recommends routine infant genital cutting of males and females

    -80% of the world’s men are intact, happy, and healthy and do not elect to get genitally cut.

    Over 100 infants die each year from genital cutting(that’s just reported, many more unreported) in JUST THE US many more worldwide: http://www.icgi.org/2010/04/infant-circumcision-causes-100-deaths-each-year-in-us/

    This baby just died a few months ago in Queens NYC from genital cutting: http://www.drmomma.org/2011/05/queens-baby-dies-on-table-during.html

    All these deaths and rks are COMPLETELY AVOIDABLE by keeping your kids intact and whole as they’re born. This is medically unnecessary and no medical organization in the world recommends male or female infant genital cutting. Do not risk your child’s life and his suffering as an adult http://www.tlctugger.com

    This is why i’m genitally cut and hate it:

    Pain watch and look at this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRIT5IdTpgY

    http://www.circumstitions.com/Restric/Botched7ex.html

    Hand test: Run your fingertip down the back of your hand. Now run it down the palm of your hand. Clear difference. Notice how even after you stopped touching the palm of your hand you could still feel the line you drew with your fingertip. Your palm has Meissner’s corpsucles (touch-sensitive nerves) that the back of your hand does not. The male foreskin has 20-70,000 of these. “Just a flap of skin”? Obviously not. Everything lost to circumcision: http://www.wholebabyrevolution.com/The-Lost-List.html

    “I tell people on a scale of 1 to 10 that intact my sex life was a 10. Circumcised it was a 3, and restored it is a 7. Ill never have a 10 again (only God can design the perfect penis!), but a 7 is a heck of a lot better than a 3! (P.S. I have 2 intact young adult sons who are both grateful they were kept that way.)” – From: “Circumcised as an Adult”A guy who was intact, got cut, and restored his foreskin: http://notjustskin.org/node/47

    And aesthetically(visually) it is mutilation a cut v intact penis picture to visually to show the damage: (*NSFW Graphic Nudity*) http://hphotos-snc6.fbcdn.net/175106_10150117141913024_502498023_6417515_3672720_o.jpg http://www.cutedaveyboy.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/1240942124311.jpg http://www.circumstraint.com/gallery_images.html

    I am genitally mutilated and hate it – it’s sexually diminishing. Circumcision affects women too: http://www.sexasnatureintendedit.com/ Because of a parent taking the choice over my body, I like 200,000 other men are restoring their foreskins to regain sexual sesnitivity and undo some of the damage of circumcision: http://www.tlctugger.com http://www.norm.org And am hoping for foreskin regeneration to get everything I lost back: http://www.foregen.org

    The keratinization or drying out and building of a layer of keratin of the glans and penile mucosa to protect the penis from air and clothing due to the loss of the prepuce’s protection further reduces sensitivity. Here is a picture of a penis with a keratinized glans v a shiny intact penis: http://intactivists.blogspot.com/2011/05/keratinization-and-circumcision-status_315.html

    “Only being able to see in black and white, for example, rather than seeing in full color would be like experiencing an orgasm with a foreskin and without. There are feelings you’ll just never have without a foreskin.”

    “The greatest disadvantage of circumcision is the awful loss of sensitivity when the foreskin is removed. . . . On a scale of 10, the intact penis experiences pleasure that is at least 11 or 12; the circumcised penis is lucky to get to 3.”

    “Within minutes, three feet of veins, arteries and capillaries, 240 feet of nerves and more than 20,000 nerve endings are destroyed; so are all the muscles, glands, epithelial tissue and sexual sensitivity associated with the foreskin. Finally, what nature intended as an internal organ is irrevocably externalized…”

    “I tell people on a scale of 1 to 10 that intact my sex life was a 10. Circumcised it was a 3, and restored it is a 7. Ill never have a 10 again (only God can design the perfect penis!), but a 7 is a heck of a lot better than a 3! (P.S. I have 2 intact young adult sons who are both grateful they were kept that way.)” – From: “Circumcised as an Adult”A guy who was intact, got cut, and restored his foreskin: http://notjustskin.org/node/47

    “To cut my long story short (no pun intended), orgasm decreased tremendously. The continuous “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” described above turned into “ah ah ah” at most. Masturbation (which I’m not a fan of for personal/desensitization reasons, but I realize many people like it) lost pleasure altogether. Barely a sound comes out. Ejaculatory force decreased, with loss of propelling powerful Orgasm, and indeed the penis is dry and uncomfortable. It’s been a year now, and I can’t wear boxers because it hurts when my uncovered head rubs against clothing. I bought the Manhood protection device, and it does help somewhat. I realize that soon my head will lose all sensation and it won’t hurt anymore, but that’s not consoling one bit.” – ” Circumcized at 23 – Personal Story”: http://foreskin-restoration.net/forum/showthread.php?t=4791

    “Without nerve endings,one cannot feel –

    much as without eyes, one cannot see.

    Circumcision has no medical or health benefits to speak of. It is a barbaric, torturous procedure that makes tons of money for those involved. It is a human rights violation without a doubt. Genital integrity is everyone’s right. No one, not even the parents, have the right to decide to remove a healthy, functional body part. This ridiculous procedure will negatively affect this person, and their partner for the rest of their lives. LEAVE BABY GENITALS ALONE!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Circumcision is a barbaric, torturous, unnecessary procedure that has no medical or health benefits to speak of. This is undoubtedly a human rights violation. We all have the right to genital integrity. No one, not even the parents, have the right to allow the removal of healthy, functional body parts. The foreskin is there for a reason!! LEAVE BABY GENITALS ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Suge

    you fucking americans are such idiots. love to cut up babies. go anywhere else in the world and men have all their parts. 90% of the worlds men have foreskins. i have mine. thank goodness. i cant imagine how shitty sex must be with half your cock in someone’s trash can.

    • Burt

      The difference in sensitivity between uncut and cut has been described as the difference that exists between the palm and the back of your hand.

  21. Lou

    Go Russell! I’ve got nothing against Jews but there sure as hell is something wrong with mutilating perfect babies. Any parent that allows it to be done on their son is a monster and every doctor who performs it is going straight to hell

  22. Russell Crowe Circumcision
    Denise
    Commented on this photo:

    Russell Crowe speaks from a brave heart. He knows it it wrong to injure a baby at birth, and he is big enough to say it.
    Yes, I buy his movies and now I will buy everything he does.
    He is what all men should be. Smart and sexy and HOT..
    Standing up for babies is as manly as you get. That is standing up for humanity. Cutting babies is retarded. I can tell by talking to a man if he has been traumatized at birth by having his foreskin removed. It is extremely damaging and only a compassion lacking robot could do it to a helpless baby. I don’t think Russell has been cut.. He is too hot.
