Jena Troutman, a lactation consultant and the mother of two boys, had been leading the charge to gather signatures to qualify a circumcision ban for Santa Monica's 2012 ballot. But she said she was scrapping her efforts because of intense media focus on the religious component of circumcision.Lactation Consultant? Seriously? Does any woman on the face of the earth really need a consultant to help her along with what humans have been doing since...well, since before we were even human? What's next? Morning Post-Coffee Bowel Movement Advisor? Yawning Coach? Blinking Assistant?
Sheesh. I was going to write something about the whole circumsion thing, but now I'm not sure I can get back to that sane and rational happy place where I can avoid choking on my coffee in bemused and almost fearful dismay at the displays of 9 kinds of crazy that I'm seeing.
