So do tell how does a Bris compare to breast ironing?
I know! Let’s bring these people to the USA, because we NEED diversity, and all cultures are equally wonderful and contribute to a lovely quilt of multi-culturalism!!
Hey didn’t you count the syllables? Try to be impressed.
Oh I hear every word.
Then I can write nothing more without getting personal.
Was that filmed in Chicago?
The practice is rare to nominal at best.
And they are using it to promote gubmint sex ed.
YOU KNOW WHERE THAT”S GOING.
And I suppose your point is that the mohel in the bottom left part of the picture is grinding the childs penis off between a brick in each hand...
No need to get personal.
My sister used to iron her hair. That was horrifying! She even would burn her forearm hair off with the gas stove!
The poor thing.
I was scarred for life, I tell ya. forearm hair...YUCK! On a GIRL even! Oh the horrors.
The thermal conductivity of stone is low, around 2, compared to say steel, which is about 20. After watching the video, it appears the mother heats the flat side of the stone at the edge of the flames, while holding the curved side. If she moves the stone directly from the fire to the girl's chest, she could easily burn the child while still being able to hold the stone. Only the flat surface would be very hot, which the rest of the stone would be at best, warm to very warm.
Why, please indulge us with your knowledge of life in Western Africa’s urban areas.
But hey maybe they are actually safer from rape in those areas, after all I don’t know how many U.N peacekeeping units are stationed there.
To heck with ironing. Two stones with the flat sides clapped together vigorously with the problem between them, would likely suffice.
Here’s a hint for ya...now go look up “specific heat”.
You’re reaching bud, keep reachin, I’ll keep watchin ya do it.
My point is that many cultures modify the bodies of their children. I’m not in favor of any type of mutilation - especially of children.
I agree, which is why I am not.
I just posted from your post.
You are the affected expert, you explain.
No one here would do this to their children, yet circumcision is considered a norm.
I am not saying either are right.
I am only saying that this blog/film was clearly meant to incite.
I have breasts. They are sensitive. I can farkin well guarantee you that pressing a hot iron to them or hey even a heated stone to them would hurt a hell of a lot more than using a curling iron on my hair. Even a quick accidental burn with a curling iron would hurt less.
Tell you what why don’t you ask the significant female in your life if you can press down on her bare breasts with a hot rock or better yet ask her permission to do this to your daughter or to her daughter. Though to be truly representative of this practice the daughter should be just starting to develop.
I feel certain she will say yes after all it is not much more than curling hair, now is it?
“I know! Lets bring these people to the USA, because we NEED diversity, and all cultures are equally wonderful and contribute to a lovely quilt of multi-culturalism!!”
They are here.
Not before that statment, but I won't revise the statement. Just because that particular mother used a different technique, essentially that stone has low thermal conductivity, but a high heat capacity, doesn't mean that other mothers, perhaps in different villages don't insulate their hands in other ways. A latter post provides a quote indicating some women do use towels to protect their hands, from a stone that has been heated in boiling water. (That probably wont' burn anyone though, but it ain't going to be comfortable against the tender regions of the skin.
As someone who worked around some pretty hot equipment (making rubber belting products) I can tell you that your hands, especially if they are callused can take a lot more heat than other places. Your chest for example. Or even the sides of your elbow joint (As I know from personal experience, including some scars that took a decade or two to completely fade away) To this day, and it's been 38 years, I have no problems with holding plates that the waitresses use a towel to move from their tray to the table. Blows their minds. :)
I did not write that quote. I would suppose it is referring to the fact that in urban areas there is more exposure to criminals.
Yes, definitely count the syllables. You will be impressed.
Here, count these syllables too:
That was the reference to "heat capacity", whereas I should have said "specific heat capacity." Heh, it's been a long time since I had thermo.. but I did have it.
Granite has about twice the specific heat as iron, but it's a much better insulator, by a factor of about 10, so one part of the rock can be quite hot, while the other part is still not burning hot. It takes about twice as much energy per unit mass to raise the temperature of granite than the same rise would take for iron.
BTW, you do know that there are several kinds of specific heat, don't you? And all sometimes go by slightly different names, depending on the field. Engineers tend to use slightly different nomenclature than say physicists. Makes working together a bit confusing at times.
BTW, I agree it's propaganda piece, but that doesn't mean that it's not mostly true. All the best propaganda is.
Do know what letter/symbol engineers use for "voltage"? Or what they, especially electrical engineers, use for the square root of -1?
I’m impressed. You actually sound as smart as algore in that post. Except you left out a hockey stick. That oversight will probably cost you a nobel prize. Sorry bout your luck.
6:35 in the film the Mama says the stone is not to warm.
This is pure claptrap propaganda, designed to have you hand over control to the government.
They toss in ONE pic of a scarred girl earlier to make you horrified.
The rest of them gals had normal african breasts
Do not ever again address me on this forum.
Look at Michelle.
Yall spose she was Ironed?
She sure never walked or sat on hat coals.
This entire thread is BS
What ever happened to the vocal Gloria Steinem and the National Organization of Women? Turns out they were a bunch of hypocrits. They’re AWOL in today’s world or they’re apologists for violent busers - after all it’s their “culture”
>>”It is majority Christian, and apparently this practice occurs throughout the country in both Muslim and Christian regions. I was curious about that too.”<<
Is there a link to the video somewhere besides a MySpace blog?
If they were doing that it would have been in the video as it would be much more dramatic. Also, these "mothers" are the very same idiots maiming their daughters by cutting their clits off.
I think these "mothers" don't want to compete with their daughters. If this was really about protecting their daughters they would be smashing some nuts with these rocks instead.
This is the culture (?) that was installed here by the big time theives to distract us from the theft.
I had thought as much. Nothing like a history of war,violence, murderous tyrannical dictatorships and explotation by various agencies to up a standard of living. Look at Detroit.
If it’s all butt sex, why do they need abortion?
The basic motivation seems to be that any sign of puberty will result in the girl being sexually assaulted by men -- a rape-based society, if you will.
Seems to me that Horowitz's blog might want to take a look at the larger problem.
LoL! that's the truth!
/rant off. But you pressed one of my hot buttons.
Read farther down the thread. Other reports have them using towels to insulate their hands from the rocks. But in this particular case, she was heating the flat side of the rock, while still able to hold the other side. That would mean she's have to reheat frequently, and maybe change rocks, depending on how long the process went on.
I mean, would you have to see video of the people being marched into the showers and their bodies thrown into the ovens, before you'd believe the Nazis were killing people wholesale? Come to think of it, a lot of people did have that level of evidence, but the movies and even stills did not become available until well after the fact.
I made that very suggestion down thread a bit.
But when you are in an area where men believe AIDS can be cured by having sex with a virgin, almost anything is possible.
'twas my daughters or granddaughters, I'd be on over watch with the AR or maybe the G-3. If I can pop a tennis ball floating down the Trinity, other sorts of balls would not a be a big challenge. First SOB that tried to put a move on 'em would serve to an example to "encourage the others" to be on better behavior.
You should be embarrassed to even post that to me.
I believe next to nothing from the liberal media so I am not just going to believe this either.
It wasn't a bunch of lying, abortionist, liberal, commie, fag marriage supporting, Obama voting douche bags who reported the holocaust.
That ain't the way it works here.
