I thought it was a delayed Friday thread and there was a little misunderstanding for the sole reason that I refer to this practice (in animals) as "neutering".

what do you mean?

look at the stats in the us

16% tubal ligation vs 6% vasectomy, shouldnt the men be doing their bit?

and take india for example its women that get dragged in for tubal ligation hardly any men get dragged in for vasectomies

“There were 114,426 vasectomies in India in 2002-03, and 4.6 million tubal ligations, the analogous operation on women, though ligation is a more complicated operation."

i'd suggest to you misogyny is much more prevalent than misandry. so maybe that should deserve more of your attention?

Let me make it simple for you.

1. Castration is not vasectomy. It is rather more radical. Calling for men to be castrated is rather more vicious than suggesting that men should have vasectomies more readily than women should have their tubal ligation, or wombs removed (which point I entirely agree with), and is about as funny as Trump's comment to Brande Roderick.

2. The fact that one expression of hate is more prevalent than the other doesn't somehow make the second any more acceptable.

3. With this thread you're supposed to make a link out of what you first though. So the correct approach would be:

Petition to make castration mandatory for men


The being an expression of chagrin that your mind works that way.

If a man is a repeat sexual offender, a vasectomy is not going to stop that but a castration might. Let's suppose counselling and psychology hadn't worked and every time he gets let out of prison he does it again, so finally they decide to lock him up for life.

Now if agains after many years behind bars and showing the will to improve, he was given the choice between voluntary castration and staying there for life, would that be unreasonable?

Just saying.

personally i think you are overreacting, i think that has something to do with the (dare i say it 'over') importance you ascribe to your balls and others mens balls.

In the same way the women who think "humourous" comments about FGM over ascribe importance to their own genitals? Your logic is... odd.

Nah - it's just I can smell hypocritical crap a mile off. I had the snip years ago. No hesitation, no regrets. I think men who let their partners have tubes tied or womb removed, over having a vasectomy themselves, are bunch of wusses.

Anyway, on with the thread.

Sanctimommy. Brilliant.
