Ever since I started Tumblr a few years ago, I always had the same theme that I was pretty content with. As a beginner, the theme I had before the current one was more that I could ever ask for. It was clean, simple yet clever.
Then, as some of you must know I took a way too long Tumblr hiatus so things were basically on hold. A few months ago I started missing Tumblr big time. A lot of people unsubscribed and I do not blame them. Why should you follow a blog that is virtually on hold for a year or more?
So I decided if I was going to do a comeback, changes needed to be done. So I took the very first step: Changing the theme. I had a very clear picture of what I wanted in my mind but since I am an HTML analphabet I did what every other breathing human being would do.
Lately, we haven’t talked that much. I suppose I got used to leave everything to your better judgement and stopped worrying about myself.
But in the past few days I started to think a lot about you. There are many things that I would like to change and I know you could do this for me. In order to…
Is it possible to start achieving all the above listed?
Get out of the quicksand?
Please and thank you.

Recording! Excited to see the results. I bet they’re going to supass our expectations. #mayerisback
Earlier this morning while I was straightening my hair and what not I was watching Youtube. So far so good. All of the sudden, I came across a video of a girl talking about uncircumcised penises and how disgusting they are.
Years ago, while I was watching Sex In The City, the same topic appeared for the first time in my life. Remember that episode when Miranda is dating a Catholic guy and when they are about to have intercourse she sees ‘the thing’ and freaks out big time? I was quite disturbed that time.
Here in Spain, Portugal, France and Italy (that I am aware of) no little baby boy or adult man gets circumcision done unless they have phimosis, which means the foreskin in not retractable enough causing major problems and infections. My little nephew and all the baby boys that I know, when being born, none have gone under the knife. Pediatritians check that all is good in the area and only proceed to remove the foreskin if it is affecting the proper function of the penis.
So this leads me to think that it is a cultural thing. While I am aware that people who practice Judaism and Islam practice circumcision, I don’t understand why people with none or other religious backgrounds, especially in the US (that I am aware of) freak out so much when they learn about an uncircumcised male. Come to think, this is a very narrow perspective of life.
If males were born with it, then it must have a purpose. While it mightn’t have a crucial purpose (same way if they extirpate your amygdales or your appendix and you have no side effects), I do not understand why this is so gross to even talk about it.
Weren’t guys born with that foreskin? Why are people so grossed out with something that comes with the pack? It is not like they chose to add it later on. It must have a purpose (such as preventing infections). Also, that belief that uncircumcised males are dirty…
Didn’t their dad or mum teach them how to move the skin in order to keep it all clean and fresh? If an uncircumcised guy feels dirty to you, it is because two main reasons:
1. - Your beliefs lead you to this premise.
2. - You have come across a guy who is as dirty as he can be. And I bet if his penis smells or whatever, so will his armpits and whatnot.
Because that, my friends, is a dude who suffers from ‘shower allergy’ syndrome.
So ladies and gentlemen, let’s not go all grossed out when learning about your guy next to you didn’t get surgically removed his foreskin. Probably he didn’t need to.
And remember this, next time you land on Paris (cité de l’amour) or you see a breathtaking handsome Italian guy… think about it.
He’s probably coming with the full package.
And nope, that is not disgusting.
So I have opened a Blogger account as of today.
I am NOT planning on leaving Tumblr behind by any means. Love it too much to leave it behind.
But if Yahoo is gonna do their lucrative thing in here, I figured I might try to do mine someplace else too.
Still working in my Wordpress ‘thingy’ because I’d like it to be absolutely sleek.
Blogger is the ‘happy medium’.
