Russell Crowe: 'Circumcision is Barbaric and Stupid'

Russell Crowe has spoken out about circumcision on his Twitter account.

“Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect,” the 47-year-old actor wrote on Twitter on Thursday (June 9).

“I will always stand for the perfection of babies, i will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires,” Russell continued.

“Last of it, if [you] feel it is [your] right 2 cut things off [your] babies please unfollow and f— off,I’ll take attentive parenting over barbarism,” he concluded.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Russell Crowe’s argument against circumcision?

Amazing that this is being discussed as “barbaric and stupid” yet abortion is fully acceptable. Outlaw circumcision and allow abortion, you people have lost your minds. If you allow abortion, you better damned well allow circumcision!!!

I’m circumcised and very happy to be so.

Last time I checked, male circumcision only affected one body: the male whose pen!s it is. Fundamental human rights protect bodily integrity for all humans. Abortion is a murkier issue since there are two bodies involved.

@lengela:

Until enough Jews have the courage to say “this barbarism stops with me”

If you don’t have anything to compare it to, I can see how a circumcised man might believe he was happy with his lot in life.

It’s like the fella who has 20/20 vision but is colour-blind. He can see, sure, but he is missing all the richness and vibrancy that colour brings.

Good article (recommended by The British Medical Journal) http://www.cirp.org/library/sex_function/

Come show support here, where he has been named ‘Profile of the Week’ (and joins Ben Affleck, Pamela Anderson, John Leguizamo, Salmon Rushdie, Virginia Madsen, Christopher Hitchens, Penn & Teller, Howard Stern, Gordon Ramsey, Dolph Lundgren, Craig Ferguson, Luke Doucet, Ben Cohen, Tony Hawk, and an ever-growing cast of celebrities with the gonads to speak out.

It’s GREAT that celebs are speaking out against this human rights violation. Infant circ needs to go!

he also says, “Abortion should always be a woman’s choice, there is no benefit to “forced” motherhood…you got it?”
no one is forcing anyone to undress and have sex to create that baby, why don’t you educate yourself first, learn safe sex or better yet wait and fall in love with someone you want to have kids with! There is no circumstance ever where abortion is acceptable.. its murder, killing an infant up to 9 months in the womb is accepted today and its sick.. where as killing an infant within 2 mins of being born, oh the horror! It is the same thing. All life is precious~ If you are not ready to be a mom or dad, don’t have sex! Its not punishment, its what you do if you want (or are open to the possibility) of having a baby I wish more people thought of it this way! Love people, LOVE

I haven’t admired RC since The Sum Of Us because of his short temper, but this greatly redeems him in my eyes.

And he’s not driven by antisemitism (as Mel Gibson might have been): “During location filming of Cinderella Man, Crowe made a donation to a Jewish elementary school whose library had been damaged as a result of arson.[24] A note with an anti-Semitic message had been left at the scene.” – Wikipedia.

hahahahaha
russell looks smelly. he should be circumsized too

He’s absolutely right. There’s no medical justification for it, and it causes a lot of irrepairable damage to unlucky babies. It is barbaric. Doctors just push it on parents because they profit off it.

YES!!!! Good on him for stating the truth!!!! The Jewish say they are religious, yet continue to undo God’s perfect work, with their barbaric acts of circumcision. Let a person decide for themselves if they want this done to them, or not.

The timeless battle rages on, its the anteaters vs the helmetheads

Good for him for speaking up for babies who can’t speak for themselves. Circumcision IS barbaric and stupid.

i wasn’t a fan before but i am now!!! thank you for speaking up for all the babies that can’t speak up for themselves.
as far as the other comments, i cant read them all but if anyone cares to, simply google “circumcision deaths” and see how much information there is out there. no, its not such a rare condition….and other problems such as castration. Its not just a “simple little nick”…its much much worse than that.
i can say that after having my first 2 sons circumcised…luckily i began to research this issue while pregnant with my 3d son. no 3 and no 4 are intact….YOU CAN HAVE SONS WITH DIFFERENT PENISES!!! IT IS OK!
for those who are wondering “what is the big deal”…please research this issue. The rate of circumcision in the US is falling way below the 50% it used to be…..when our babies are older and in the locker rooms, they will be the majority (INTACT), not minority.
BTW, I am a Jewish mom who decided to not circumcise my 2 youngest…this isn’t impossible for many Jews to contemplate.

Russell Crowe is so ignorant he is embarrassing. He knows nothing of what he speaks. Maybe he should speak to thousands and thousands of Jewish Men who have been and no issues at all have ever come of it. EVER. Geez it’s true most actors are just dumb f–ks.

All I know is, first guy I ever attempted to go to third base with was circumsphere and not only did it smell bad but it was dirty/slimy and he had taken a shower after football practice that day so its not like he had bad hygiene . so no Russell. Maybe in Australia/UK where circumcision isn’t the norm and women don’t know any bettter….but here in the US, expect your kid to be remembered as “smelly d*ck” by whatever 15 year old girl has the misfortune of (almost) getting down with him at.

*circumsized, not circumsphere. damn autocorrect

circumcised, not circumsphere. damn autocorrect

I totally agree with him. I used to think that circumcision is important because of our culture in the Philippines that almost 95% of men is circumcised. Now that i live here in Europe and circumcision is not common here, it makes me realized that indeed you want the babies to be all natural.

That was a very stupid comment! Its obvious he’s walking around with a foresk!n! That is just gross!
Circumcision is also good for hygienic purposes and also reduce chances of getting easily infected with HIV…(I feel sorry for whoever suck his d!ck)

@Sarla – there`s still one glaring mistake in your sentence.

And I’m sorry to have to tell you, but even though that boy may have just taken a shower, but he obviously still didn’t know how to properly clean himself. He was, in more than one sense, a dirty boy. He obviously didn’t care enough about his body hygene, and not even going out with you could change that. Says a lot about him….and you for putting up with it.
To go from this one experience, no matter how unpleasant it was, to sayging that all uncircumsized p**** are always dirty, just goes to show how immature you are.

How about ear piercing babies Mr. Crowe? Or any kid for that matter? Is that stupid and barbaric too?

@hmmm:

Religion is the greatest insult to humanity.
