Of course it's San Francisco — the same city that banned Happy Meals, plastic bags, tasering kids, sitting on the sidewalk and fun in general — that might vote on banning male circumcision in November. A collection of "intactivists" (ha, good one) proposing a ban submitted over 12,000 signatures to the city's Election Board yesterday, with 7,168 verified signatures required for the bill to go to a vote. They should know if the signatures are legit within a month.
Who are these dirty hippies, and what do they want with your baby's penis? For starters, some of them wear pins that read "May the foreskin be with you" to gatherings at City Hall. They also sell t-shirts and onesies. And, they've even drafted a multi-sectioned draconian law to govern their hippie police state:
SEC. 5003. PENALTY.
Any person who violates any provisions of this Article shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction such person shall be punished by a fine not to exceed $1,000 or by imprisonment in the County Jail for a period not to exceed one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
That's it? Maybe as much as a $1,000 fine? Ha, well then go for it! Someone just needs to start the San Francisco Male Circumcision Defense Fund to fork over the fines and any bail that might need to be paid. Hands off my (non-existant) baby's peen, hippies.
