A proposal to ban circumcision will be on the San Francisco ballot this November.
As a Jewish Mama, my response should fall somewhere along the lines of outrage and a head-tisk.
And as a bleeding heart Mama, my response should be somewhere in the range of agreement and an apology to my son.
I whole-heartdely feel all of these emotions. In other words, I’m conflicted.
I don’t agree with the circumcision ban. But you might be surprised why.
Scratching, clawing, digging. Those words don't sound very friendly, do they? When it comes to getting beyond the surface of stereotypes, they're even worse than that. They're painful.
