Okay, I did it. It has to be approved by a mod before it shows up, so I'll post the link to the questions forum & hopefully we can all see it soon.

I agree w/ the two PP'ers & philomom. I know of at least one instance (vax'ing) where those posting there had been asked about a name change. Can this please be reopened for discussion? Or at a minimum, can it be changed to something simple like "anti-circumcision?" There's a big difference between the meaning one would get from "the case against circumcision," & "circumcision." If one needs any proof, I imagine a google search would show the difference. Being one who gets nightmares from viewing/hearing circ related info, I won't be trying it myself.
All of this is being posted in the most respectful tone one can muster on a tired Sunday morning.

Maybe mothers who are considering circumcision will be more likely to post here and that way they will get the facts.post #16 of 596/9/13 at 1:24pmQuote:
This is one of the reasons for simplifying the title.
As I said, we have no intention of changing the posting guidelines or the purpose of the forum and we'll continue to moderate as we always have. If we do see that the name change is setting the stage for problem discussions then we can revisit the decision.post #18 of 596/11/13 at 5:01pmpost #19 of 596/12/13 at 6:54amQuote:
I think following that logic, the opposite could also be said. Well, it's just circumcision, MDC must support it, so I'll just do it. Just skimming through is all that's necessary. If someone is scrolling through the list of forum sections & sees "circumcision," vs. "the case against circumcision," the later gets a point across w/o the person having to come into the forum at all. How many parents say, "I didn't knwo I had a choice!" Well, the forum named, "Circumcision," isn't going to make that point.Quote:Originally Posted by Cynthia Mosher

Well, I'm glad the rules aren't changing, but I think trying to make the title simple tries to make an issue that, for most, isn't simple into one that is.Quote:
There are many old threads here of first timer's or first timer's to TCAC who come looking for information. I think it's a incorrect assumption to say that most people who come here will already be anti-circ. Everyone has to start somewhere & for some, circ comes later. Even my lay-midwife-turned-nurse-midwife circ'd her four boys. She's now against it but the cultural push to do it is intense for some.
It used to be that if you googled circumcision, this was the first or among the first links to pop up. I doubt that's the case any longer. If we are okay to fall by the wayside of promoting genital integrity, then it doesn't matter. But if MDC wants to be a stand-up in the fight for genital integrity, then listing this area of MDC as simply a noun, doesn't fit w/ that goal.
