This is going to lower the tone.
Yet again.I’m truly sorry. Readers of a nervous disposition should read no further.
All these can be Binged but fortunately for the faint of heart I’m not going to give exact quotes. If you don’t believe me, you can take an eye-watering look for yourselves:
circumscission (there is a connection between scissor and cisor but this paints the more vivid mental picture)
(and for the theological)
‘Slips, innovations and reshapings’. Never truer words!
I agree with the author that this is an unacceptable tradition, but he/she did not write any comments concerning the other side to female circumschism.His title is: Good tradition or not? Well, what happened to the good part?
After a life that often begins with the female circumschism, proceeds with servitude, obedience, all that hot garb theys gots to wear
But all the ‘circus sized ‘are the same joke

OK, Juan, looks good, don’t know how I overlooked those. “Cute” is maybe not the right word here, but circumschism is a very good one.
