A recent post on the blog www.sowetanlive.co.za reports that Sowetan Deputy Minister of Police, Fikile Mbalula, was forced into undergoing painful circumcision because of his superior position and the nature of their culture.
So extreme is the importance placed on the penis, individuals are considered “children” if they retain their foreskin into adulthood.
In a recent bar brawl, four men were killed over an argument about penis size. And by two police officers no less!
I know what you’re thinking, but this is a completely different society. Personally, I believe there is something very sinister and suspicious going on here. Much like in America where it still considered “normal” to mutilate children in this manner. I have no doubt that external and/or governmental pressures encourage this. They’re certainly not doing anything meaningful to DISCOURAGE this kind of attitude.
So, the next time you’re worried about the size, shape, or effectiveness of your dick, spare a thought for Sowetan guys who have no choice but to live a life so focussed on the value of their penis.
