Those circumcised in infancy and therefore bereft of any palpable knowledge of a foreskin yet nonetheless resent its absence, are in a very special group of their own and deserve our admiration for their ability to understand their loss. Those circumcised as older boys and adults have a tale to tell of resentment and regret which gives the tortured cries of healthy little boys forcefully circumcised against their will the spoken words their screams embody.
I joined Mothering in April 2006 - foreskin intact. March 2010 I was circumcised with a tale to tell.
The link below is a revelation. It first lists historical accounts of famous men who abhor/red their circumcised penises, followed by something approaching 200 replies from men like me. It's just a dip in the ocean of millions like us across the world, with America at the pinnacle.
It cannot be gainsaid: whether a foreskin is cut off as a medical necessity or at the whim of cultural or misdiagnosed acceptance, a circumcised penis is a crippled penis.
