I'm goBecgo. I'm in the UK. Because i am surrounded by uncirc'd men i have always been vaguely horrified with the idea that a whole society so similar to my own would routinely do it, so i suppose i lurk to read about you all fighting the good fight for all those little boys. It's strange to think of people having such strong beliefs about amputating a little baby's genitals in an educated country - i know that sounds weird and judgemental but it's late and i'm a bit clumsy with it. It's almost like hearing someone say the world is flat, i feel like "wow, do they REALLY believe that!?" because it's been many decades since routine circ'ing happened over here, there is NO segment of society that would ever think this was necessary/a good idea. I literally know NO little UK boys who aren't intact.
My dad was circ'd late due to repeated infections and scarring because his parents used forced retraction to "clean" him. His brother (20months younger) is intact so they obviously learned their lesson thank goodness!
I tend to post on AUstralian sites a lot too, and they also still have a circ'ing culture (it's slowly changing) and i like to post the link to The Prepuce video as it's such a great piece with all one needs to know.
I agree with GoBecGo. I am in the uk too and just kinda horrified about circumcision. I just cannot wrap my head around it at all.
My step brother was circumcised and from I can gather (he dated an x friend), he has sensitivity issues. I don't know if it was a truely necessary circ, I don't think it was but its a bit late now to ponder it.
My DH is so anti circ its amazing, shame we don't live in America! Could do some intactivism.
