Castration without malice

You think I'm kidding, right? I wish I were. This just in from news reports flying around the internets, courtesy of good ol' mountain boys right here in No' Cackalacky.

At least six men came to western North Carolina, some from as far away as South America, to have their genitals mutilated in what police described Friday as a sadomasochistic "dungeon." Three men have been charged with illegal castration in the case, Haywood County Sheriff Tom Alexander and District Attorney Michael Bonfoey said. The sheriff and prosecutor said the victims were willing participants in the procedures.

But here's the kicker, so to speak:

Michael Mendez, 60, Richard Peter Sciara, 61, and Danny Carroll Reeves, 49, each are charged with castration without malice, maiming without malice and practicing medicine without a license.

Practicing medicine? Hmmmmm.

Comments

Sorry.

It's a slow news day.

I just knew you would be the one to pick

up this story. For some reason I didn't think I should be the one to bring this up.

I'm going to pick Katie up and take she and Elizabeth to dinner. I am getting sooooo behind. I guess Mom stuff has to come first.

That's a good one, SD.

Sometimes you crack me up.

If you've got to be castrated,

It may as well be by someone who cares! This thread reminds me of the early Christian theologian, Origen. According to lore, he took Matthew 19:12 seriously and castrated himself ("For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by men; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it"). Later in life he came to a different, less literal translation of the section. This led to the modern phrase "you can't unring a bell," which is a corruption of a line from Origen's writings, "you can't resling a ball."

I made only the last sentence up.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

Oh.My.God

Tonight Show for sure with Jay!

I can see it now from the news report!

"This right here beats everything I have ever seen," Alexander said.

Michael Mendez, 60, Richard Peter Sciara, 61, and Danny Carroll Reeves, 49, each are charged with castration without malice, maiming without malice and practicing medicine without a license.



Remember -- I didn't bring this up

but now that someone else has . . . I can't resist. What exactly IS castration? Are we talking removal of testicles only? Or is there more to it?

And, if it's only removal of the testicles why does it make me feel incredibly uncomfortable while at the same time women are having ovaries removed at a rate that makes you think the starving actually need those eggs for breakfast.

Remember -- I didn't bring up the subject.

The wiki definition

of Castration

Castration - also referred as: gelding, neutering, orchiectomy, and orchidectomy - is any action, surgical, chemical, or otherwise, by which a biological male loses use of the testes. This causes sterilization, that means that it prevents him from reproducing; it also greatly reduces the production of certain hormones, such as testosterone. It is usually considered painful, and in some countries is used as torture. It should not be confused with penectomy, which is the whole or partial removal of the penis, nor with vasectomy, which is a procedure to sterilize a male by blocking the vasa deferentia, the tubes that connect the testicles to the prostate.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

You are just...so...clinical. We just call it a bobbitt.

thank you

Now I feel fully informed

Penectomy?

I thought that was when Dick Cheney was impeached . . .

Um...well...unless it's chemical castration

I guess then they get to keep all the family jewels. You feel uncomfortable b/c men are historically squeamish about anything that involves their...um...privates. (I'm trying to be nice so Lance doesn't censor me...or censure me.)

Oops

Was I not nice?

I guess I need to read the rules.

I'm not squeamish about discussions of body parts. Now, cutting off body parts (of any kind) makes me uncomfortable. But I won't say more until I'm sure I'm not upsetting someone.

Oh no...it's not you

I don't really think there are any rules. I just like to tease Lance. Our gender has been sorely under-represented here. Actually, everyone here is very easy to get along with...surprisingly easy.

Glad you're here.

Charles Taylor - What did he know and when did he know it?

No public comment from the Taylor camp yet on the castration story. While Taylor is more likely to bust balls than get involved in the homoerotic castration scene, the constituents of district eleven can't stop wondering if Charlie's Chainsaw was somehow involved.

Story developing...
