It is in an interesting thought, I think on a few occasions I have wondered. Only because I know a few moms IRL who circ and do come to MDC. Sadly one has told me flat out that they avoid the CAC because they don't want to know what a horrible thing they let happen to their kid (I think because of the way she said it she instinctively knew it was wrong, but caved because her DH wanted it done).
I keep it in my siggy because I think here in the US it's such an important thing to discuss and an issue that people need to talk about.
It is very important to me, as I've been personally affected by circ (through my DH).
The other natural parenting stuff associated with MDC I do, yet I don't feel as strongly about.
Every baby has the right to keep their genitals whole. And it's sad here in the US that half the population is at risk for that.
It should be normal and natural to have your whole body. To know that the foreskin is valuable errogenous tissue. But, here in the US, whole generations have surgically altered penises...and they don't want to think they are missing anything. They'd rather stay subconsciously continue to mutilate their sons and grandsons rather than let them have something they will never have. And, its bizarre but it seems like most people, espcially in older generations have been taught that men with foreskins are gross, smelly and unclean. It's so flippin warped if you think about it, because its so obvious that girls have more internal parts. But people here don't talk about it, and will not even acknowledge that cutting baby penis parts off is wrong.
So many people here in the US think circumcision is a snip...that the foreskin is like a flap of skin like an earlobe...and I'm not kidding. They don't know it's the removal of 40-60% of the skin of the penis, and is valuable errogenous tissue. They have no clue how a normal penis is supposed to act. They think lubrication is something that all people have to use to have sex, that it is "normal"
So I do think, if you feel strongly about genital integrity then it's important to say so.
If you live in a country other than the US where quite obviously circumcision is considered mutilation and is a shocking prospect you could just say that in your siggie.
Something like 'in our country circumcision of boys and girls is considered a human rights violation or it's unheard of or is not a legal parental choice.'
It's honestly amazing how many people here in the US I have met who think all the men around the world (except Africa and non-developed countries...) are cut.
Anyhow, that was sort of a tangent.
