The Collective Desensitization of Man
A heavy and uncomfortable truth is that the modern man of today is generally not as connected to his intuitive and emotionally expressive capacities. This is not a biological deficiency but rather sociocultural conditioning and a very blatant effect of the traumatic yet unnoticed results of male circumcision during infancy.
The first few days of a person’s life are a delicate time frame in which many of the very first impressions will become imprinted and stored as the very first attempts at understanding physical reality.
Studies of men who were circumcised in infancy have found that some men experienced symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder, depression, anger, and intimacy problems that were directly associated with feelings about their circumcision.
Circumcision is often performed on infants without anesthetic or with a local anesthetic that is ineffective at substantially reducing pain. The baby is strapped into a device with arms and legs restrained while a piece of its body is mutilated and taken away.
It’s no wonder there is rampant distortion around our cultural sexual values, as well as an epidemic of sexual misconduct and desensitization.
The body is the subconscious mind manifested, and if a physical body part related to sensitivity and connection is missing, then spiritually and subconsciously it would feel as if it’s missing as well. A natural response would be a sense of mistrust and disconnection from the feminine since there was no protection from the first female figure, the mother.
It is necessary for our generational collective healing to examine this unfortunate medical phenomenon and address its hidden consequences.
