Circumcision! NSFW

This is Not Safe For Work, so gif is under the fold.

And here’s Aharon again mass-slaughtering sheep per divine instruction, for comparison.

Yay Exodus!

UPDATE: Facebook censored my link to that circumcision gif! I got a notice saying it “violated community standards.” So I made a new one:

  1. I saw your post about this on Facebook, including your critique of circumcision as barbaric and your concern about criticizing a Jewish practice as a Jewish practice. I’m a Jewish opponent of circumcision and definitely agree with your stance, as do many Jews I know and a growing number of Jews and non-Jews. Thank you for your art and your courage to share it.

  2. I love your work but I question the use of giant disembodied dicks. It doesn’t express the pain, anguish and seder-masochism of the people the dicks were attached to. How about Hebrew men holding their kilts up as they sail by Aaron- with tears and screaming expressions as he hacks their little prepuces off.

  3. I think the disembodied dicks need to hop around, just like the sheep in the previous animation. Otherwise, they look kinda static, just sliding along…

  4. Good evening Nina,

    How much would it cost to have you make a GIF very similar to this one? (Sedar masochism) I’d like this same idea but with an American doctor using a scalpel instead. I’d also like dollar signs to spray out after each chop.

    Sincerely,
    Kathleen

  5. I love your work; you are brilliant. You are sometimes subtle, and sometimes splitting atoms. Nothing defeats ignorance/fascism/demagoguery/reactionaries/zealotry, etc than laughing at them….
    As the lovers cried, “Don’t stop!”

  6. I don’t htink based on this video that Paley is criticizing the Jewish practice of Circumcsion but rather I think she is trying to show how silly ancient religions seem. But hindsight is 20/20. And it really does seem silly to us, just like a lot of history seems silly these days, the Crusades, the imperial conquests of Muslims, the Ottomans, etc etc. but it wasn’t silly back then!

    The ancient Jewish-actually it was Egyptian in origin- practice of circumcision was not silly back then and our 21st century minds need to be more relativistic. It’s arrogant to judge just one ancient religion against modernity. They didn’t have humanism, secularism, liberalism or democracy 3,000 years ago.

  7. Hi,

    it is funny to see that is safe for work to show blood and people killing each other but not a circumcision 😀
