I live in Germany and followed the discussion after the famous "Salomonic decision" of the minor court in Köln. It was very emotional and hurt on the Jewish side and just dirty and under the belt-line on online boards of major newspapers. I finally came to a theory I discussed (because I am religious and my lack of practical experience)with a Christian friend. She is a tough business woman, leader of international projects. When I told her that I think, that this circumcision discusson is all about the fear of "normal German men" (that is: not circumcised) that the "Jewish/Moslim stallions" (sorry guys, you'll understand the reason why I choose this word later) take away their females- she blushed. Not only the cheeks, but also the ears. Completely. This tough woman blushed, muttered something like " Hmm, yes, hmm, you know, hmm, you might be right. One of my boyfriends....." So? My advice to the author of the article: just forget what the guys tell you. There is so much subconscious fear in the guys, that's just basic Neandertal. You can't reason on this level. Just relax, lean back in your seat. Smile, And tell them, "You are so right. I am so traumatized. You can't imagine...."
