Chin Up!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, everyone,

 

I was poking around online a bit ago and it does seem likely there will be a pro-circ announcement by at least one of the major US organizations revising the wishy-washy 1999 stance on RIC. That being the case, I just wanted to say to everyone else waging the good fight against the needless and painful mutilation of unconsenting children, PLEASE don't be discouraged!

 

We are turning the tide by leaps and bounds. I began fighting RIC back in the Reagan years and trust me, the climate is so much more well informed and receptive today than it was a quarter-century and more ago. Things have changed, do change, are changing, and for the better. A couple I recently met who had no idea I am an intactivist happened to volunteer that they'd left their son, age seven months, intact, when "just a few years ago" they wouldn't have thought twice about circing! I was very happy, needless to say.

 

Well, I won't take up too much more time here except to say that eventually we'll overcome the groundless custom of circing boys, and I sincerely hope everyone in the intactivist community keeps up the obviously great work that's being done on behalf of this cause!

 

Never forget, we're winning!

Thank you for this!! I think it's so hard when a friend or family member circs, that sometimes, it's easy to forget that we are making progress! The big picture is that rates of circumcision are dropping and that's a reason to celebrate!! joy.gif!

Hi,

I don't post here often, but I have followed this debate for some time and the likelihood of an organization coming out in favor of circumcision in the United States is fairly close to zero.

Thanks for pointing this out!  It certainly doesn't feel like that at times and it's good to hear from a pro who has been at it for so long!
