  • Just discovered a new subreddit where this one mentally ill guy defends circumcision and deletes all opposing comments

    How are some people this stupid?

    The only times I've bothered with that website, in recent memory, was to see if anyone was discussing foreskin restoration. There are sub-reddit links for that, too.

    The first one is text-only, and the second allows posting of progress photos. If anyone knows of others, post 'em here.

      I suggest sending him this meme on his Twitter.Click image for larger version

        I tried joining the reddit. I asked if intactivists were welcomed. Bear in mind that I didn't even address intactivist arguments or claim to be an intactivist. Here is the response I got.

        You are new to Reddit, and therefore, you have no post history.

        In order to be approved, I'll need you to expound upon your stance on this subject, and also, what you intend to post.

        Thank you,

        Regardless of what I think about circumcision, or what you think about circumcision, I am asking you if you allow anti circumcision people to state their viewpoints in this reddit, or if you only allow pro circumcision people to post?

        You're an anti-circumcision activist and you failed to even read the mission statement. Permanently banned, blocked.

        Not everything revolves around you and your broken record community. Not every platform is for you. Not every podium is for your misinformation.

        And it is your intolerance of my freedom of speech, not my intolerance of yours, which causes r/DebunkingIntactivism to be created to begin with. You are an incorrigible hypocrite, a child at heart, and will be treated only as such.

          So I sent him that meme on his Twitter. He wrote the following:

          Yes, people without arguments argue through memes lacking in any and all substantiation. Just an image and a mindless cult mantra. Thanks for supporting my cause. Circumcision is not child abuse and your many claims are scientifically lacking.

          I then attempted to respond, by asking him what I have said that is false, but then I realized that he blocked me.

          For those on Twitter, please ask him what I said that is false, and why he blocks people with whom he disagrees, rather than debate their arguments.

            Sounds like his mind is closed, and all he wants to do is live in his bubble. Have you thought about what you are hoping to accomplish by engaging him repeatedly?

              I am trying to get him to see that he is wrong. I also am hoping to convince his followers that he is wrong. Unfortunately, he allows no debate on the issue, and blocks me rather than addressing my counterarguments.

                I don't see any point in communicating with full-blown devotees of anything, unless it's to strengthen your own understanding of both your own views and the opposition's views. Converting a devotee will never happen. It'd be like trying to make me believe in god. People have been trying for many years, and all they've done is add to my list of evidence that god is bullshit.

                That reddit guy will NEVER stop being devoted to circumcision, so... just stay away from him. Interacting with his page will only bump it up on search engine algorithms that promote popular content, drawing more people into his little cutter cult.
