Snooki's Comments About Circumcision Are Way Out of Line

Eye Roll 66

SnookiWell, now we know more than we ever wanted to about Snooki's son's penis. In a word, baby Lorenzo's man parts are "awesome." According to his mom, anyway.

Oh Snooki, you know you're not supposed to talk about your son's circumcision, right? Hold up! Yes, we moms can debate the ol' foreskin snip 'til the cows come home.

When it's hypothetical, we aren't embarrassing our kids. We're caring moms who want to debate real issues of pain and suffering and possible effects foreskin removal can have on whether or not they'll contract certain diseases.

We need to talk about circumcision from that standpoint. At least women (and men) who are parenting sons need to have these talks (mom of a girl over here: I have to admit I was relieved not to have to go there!).

But once you make your decision about your actual son, that's when it's time to shut up about it! Just consider how it sounded when Snooki decided to let loose about Lorenzo's circumcision:

Everything came out fine; his penis looks awesome. He's going to have a good life.

Um, thanks for sharing? Imagine being Lorenzo in about 16 years, knowing everyone knows the state of his foreskin.


Moms! On behalf of your sons, let Snooki's little snafu be a warning to you all!

Feel free to debate circumcision all you want. Become an intactivist if you want. But for the love of your sons, when the deed is done (or not done), let's keep that little detail covered in a diaper!

Do you tell people whether your son's been circumcised or not?

No but a lot of people I know do know how I feel about it and put a couple braincells together(actually just make an assumption because my stance doesn't necessarily mean anything) to reach a conclusion. I prefer not to talk outright talk about it because it is awkward but in a way it has been helpful because I can connect with friends who chose the same and if I have any questions I know who I can ask.

This article is stupid. Since when does anyone prefer to hear someone give an opinion when they are just speculating and haven't actually experienced said thing they are giving their opinion on?! And yes in conversation I have mentioned whether my boys are circumsized or not. It's not a big deal. Oh and you know what?! When my future daughter in law becomes pregnant I'll even talk to her if she wants about it. It's not my son's penis we'll be talking about. It'll be a procedure that we're talking about. Get over yourself already.

Good grief, get over yourself. Most American men are circumcised. The birth and hospital stay of Lorenzo was televised, as was the conversation with the doctor about the circumcision. She can say whatever she likes. I realize that this has become a hot button topic recently, but just because she chose that procedure (along with millions of other moms), doesn't mean she should have to be silent about it.

Considering you recently wrote an asinine article on why your glad you don't have a boy, you shouldn't be allowed to write about this topic.

If asked I say yes, cause I do. But I do not oppose my opinions onto others. It's rude and has nothing to do with how others circ or raise their boys. I look at it this way if one mom chooses to circ and another doesn't should they really debate and argue that? No. Let it go.


This is really an issue for you?First off do you think Snooki is going to be relevant when her son is 16? By the title I thought she must have said something derogatory,but no. She is just saying her son is cut big effin deal. Get out from behind your keyboard and go experience life on the outside,where people talk about their sons being cut or not. If this child were Jewish, and had a bris, would you bitch about that? After all there's a whole ritual having to do with him being cut, and everyone there would know.

No I don't give out information about my kids. However, I do point out that the parts of the penis that are cut off are some of the most highly innervated parts of the human. The lips, nipples and fingertips have similar touch sense. To take this away from another person without their consent is heinous. To do this to a newborn baby is creepy, child abuse and a human rights VIOLATION.

I doubt by the time he is 16 or whatever, that anyone will remember OR ACTUALLY CARE.

And brace yourselves for the waves of inactivists about to pour in...

Only if they ask. And the only ones who have asked have been friends with boys and they were up in the air about their decision.
