Um, I Think Not

I’m very much opposed to both attempted cures for homosexuality and circumcision, but somehow the combination of the two in Dear Abby letter from a grandmother strikes me as just too absurdly ridiculous to take seriously:

DEAR ABBY: I have reason to believe that a young man in my family may be gay. (He is 15.) I have been thinking a lot about it lately, and have been wondering if circumcision would cure it. What do you think? — GRANDMOTHER IN MISSOURI

Ah yes, surely a young man’s attraction to other men can be undone by slicing off a portion of his penis! That’ll teach him… something!

As expected, Abby wasn’t so keen on the idea.
