This is insane. A society that condones this is as sick as that woman & the dr who solicited the surgeries. We have a heap o' educating to do before the average jury is gonna concur.
You peeps for polite, gentle sharing who get uptight with us shock-value, make-no-bones-about-our-abhorrence folks? This is why we have our in-your-face presentations. There are some things only the bald truth will fix. A good circ video & being called a mutilation facilitator may help some people 'click' more than all the gentleness in the world.
I don't think the average jury will do squat, Revamp. 'He's a Dr, & don't those things have to go?'
Anger is the appropriate emotion for this. She had parts of their penises cut off! Why is this tolerated? Argh.
And they think we are the crazy ones. Uh huh. (my biomom & her 'You know, I don't want to offend, but while it used to be necessary, they say that it is not now.' So wishy-washy. I don't think she was expecting, "OMG! Mutilate our children's genitals? Of course we wouldn't do that!"
Ah well, at least she saved my nephew with that approach. I'm not saying it has no value, we all use the method we think best.)
