Is your siggy intactivist enough??? - Page 7

post #121 of 201
You're right about the sig. I want to shout it from the rooftops!! I've been meaning to change it for a while, so here we go...
post #122 of 201
MAYBE its a *little* overboard.....but........I'm an intactivist, at least online. Too angry at RIC to do it in person, yet.....

In case I *ever* decide to change it, here it is:

Well, I've always had the smilie, but I added a link to this forum, especially since I am a regular in the April ddc.

Treece -- your sig is AWESOME!!

I'm gonna take a little time tonight and revamp mine!

Anyone else changed theirs?

I did not even realize it was against UA to discuss it on other forums (not that I have). My siggy is not anti-circ because in all honesty I don't think most people even read the sig's. Maybe I'm wrong.

Always had the sign in mine, but I don't post a lot.

mine has been the same for a long time, but I love it.

It's against the UA to make pro-circ comments anywhere on MDC, but you can post anti-circ comments anywhere. As long as it isn't totally off-topic, like in the arts and crafts forums. Well I guess if you were making a needle-point anti-circ slogan on a shirt...

In the spirituality and religious studies forums it is OK to discuss religious circ. But it's not OK to discuss religious circ anywhere else, including here in CAC.

I'll remember the look of a signature even before I remember someone's name, but that might just be me. And I have noticed on occassion when I post in another area, and the next person that post in that same area will then post to the Intact and No problems thread, so yeah, they are noticed....

Just FYI as a general, you also cannot use the word mutilation in your sig either, even if you are quoting something/someone else.

And in spirtuality you can discuss the reasons behind the religious aspects, but don't think you can discuss anything else. I could be wrong about that one.

Oh and I am planning on upping my intactness in my sig, but haven't found time yet! :

I look at all the siggys. I love to see them with a lot of personality and I love to click on the links and see the sweet photos, creative arts and crafts and such. Also like to click a link and learn something new or interesting. Really LOVE clever and meaningful quotes in the siggys paired with a smilie!

since when can you not have that word?

I also love looking at sigs with blogs or WAHM ads, and baby pics. Who doesn't like baby pics? BTW Ivan's mom I'm also a veggy and don't go to the circus.

While I'm here can I get an opinion. Is the nocirc link in my sig too hard to find? I was aiming for subtle, but I now think it maybe too subtle. I thought I might get people who would normally ignor it to take a look while they were checking out the baby pics.

When did that start? I've had this sig for months and no ones said a word
post #134 of 201

I agree, I love seeing people's siggys; I can usually get a feel for what the person is like, even if it's only text

I added a few links to mine yesterday, but I had to take out the name of the person I quoted (St. Augustine) because it was too long.

Also didn't know we couldn't use that word...seems like I've seen it several times, but maybe it's a new thing?

I'm curious if some of you could explain why you have the : <~ pregnancy and birth loss ribbon next to/surrounding your Say no to Circ areas of your siggys. The : is to represent miscarraiges, stillbirth, and infant death. I'm just curious as to your perspective on using the ribbon wrt no circ.
post #137 of 201
When I point my mouse over the pink and blue ribbon, it says it stands for pregnancy and birth loss, SIDS, male breast cancer, and/or genital integrity. That's prob why some people use it with their circ quotes.

I just changed my anti-circ link to something more subtle (in an attempt to get people to take a look who might ignore otherwise...) I wish I knew for sure which is more effective (the direct or subtle route), so I'll probably switch back and forth every once in awhile

Yeah, it's also used for genital integrity. NOHARMM that uses it as part of their "logo". I personally wish there was another choice. I think it's kind of unfair to parents who have lost a child to have them lumped together, but having the pink and blue together does show that it's both MGM and FGM. I'm a bit torn on the whole thing myself.

Unfortunately I think everyone kinda glommed onto the pink and blue ribbon. It's also the logo for the March of Dimes effort to prevent preemie births. All good causes, but it would be nice if they didn't all have the same ribbon!

Ah, thank you- I did not realize that it was used by others for their "logo". Yeah- I to wish there was a different ribbon- perhaps a pink and blue multi-striped ribbon so as to uphold the MGM and FGM idea. Thanks for educating me.
