A word from a teen

post #1 of 98
Thread Starter 
Hi!

I've ended up on these forums after another research on circumcision on the web.
I'd like to thank you all for your awareness of this evil procedure and your will to stop it.
Only people with such a good heart like yours can understand how useless and painful circ is.
I'm sure that these forums have helped many parents to decide to stop this madness... pain... torture.

I'm 15 years old teen, intact (). I’m happy that there are people like you, helping us not getting our foreskins chopped off for no reason at all.

I am proud to say that I helped 2 boys decide not to have the circ done on them, even though it was part of their religion (and they are still happy).

In my opinion parents have no right to decide to chop off part of their boy's body just because they _think_ it's better, or even worse, for them to look like their father or brothers or whatever.

I especially hate the "it's cleaner' rumors. I'm uncut, with a long foreskin (not too long, but it covers the whole head of the penis) and it is very clean.
I know boys who had their foreskins cut just because their so called "friends" suggested them it and told them it’s cleaner.

Some don't even realize that circ is an operation where they cut a part of you, they think they just "make the head always visible" and when they go to the operation room, they can’t say NO.

I know one boy who had circumcision done for religious reasons when he was 6. The pain killers didn’t affect him, so, they just TIED HIM AND HELD HIM WHILE CUTTING! He said it was so painful that most of the (not so small) hospital could hear his screams.

Another example that I witnessed was another guy from my class. His mom married with another guy who apparently was obsessed with circumcision... needless to say, he was cut in a year after they engaged.

Parents should be more educated on this stuff.
I know that if my mom would have me circ'ed, I’d NEVER forgive her.

I speak now for many teens out there...Thank you.
I specially thank Frank as it seems that he is one of the best contributors

This caught my eye. Is this really OK in USA?
I know this board is dedicated mostly to stop circumcision in USA but I thought this would be excellent reminder that most boys in the world are circumcised just like this. And the really saddest part is that no human rights organisation dare to speak up against it because this practise is done for you-know-what reasons.

I have met men (refugees)from Turkey and Palestine who have said that that day was the most horrible day in their life and they never forget the pain. And this is often done in front of the whole family. One can only imagine what that does to little boy's mind.

To OP, I wish there were more young men speaking up on mothering boards against circumcision. Thanks for posting this.

I am not sure if it would be legal in USA, but in this cursed place (Israel) nobody cares.

For example they might force me () of getting me circ'ed in army or rather beat me up.
And I’m not even Jewish, so what’s the %$^%$^ point?

you should let your friend(s) know about restoration, if you haven't already.


~ k., who thinks it's great that the younger generation are slowly opening their eyes to the idiocies of our society...

First of all. Are you saying if you join the army you HAVE to circ or are just going to do it to not get beat up?

Welcome! I have no sons (yet) but my boyfriend is intact! He's clean because there's such things as SOAP!

Ill probably have to get cut or ill be beaten up and mocked for the whole 3 years period of army (noting that they REQUIRE me to join)

I'd never get cut but... I really don't know. I probably will just get beaten up and stay intact.

I begin to understand why so many people in this world hate israelis. You can delete this post, but it's what i think and i didnt come here to lie.

Or course RIC is the way to go, cause then they can never voice their agony.

I am, of course, being sarcastic...it is sickening!

Welcome to the forum, it's great to hear from you!!

Welcome! It's great to know you!
So you're from Israel. I imagine that's not an easy place for an intact man to live! Have you lived there all your life? Is army service compulsory for everyone who lives there?

I live here from ~1995 when I moved here from Ukraine (didn't have much choice, being 4 or 5 years old at the time).
My mom thought we would have better job opportunities here... wrong.

And yeah, being intact in a place like this is hell.
Most of the intact people i know got circumcised because of peer pressure and because they were afraid to get beaten up in army.

I just hope I could move somewhere before it's too late :-/

Thanks! Though I'm still stuck and I don't know what to do
Suggestions, anyone?

Yes, work with your parents to protect you until you can get out of the country and then move to a safe place as soon as possible. Most likely, to the US or a western European country.

There won't be any problems before army, before i'm 18 as nobody really knows i'm intact.
When i'll have to join the army however, It'll be hell.

I see no way to get out of this except moving from this country before I'm 18, but how and where?
