I think this sums up how I feel - especially the bold part.
Not that I'm going to teach my children to pity boys who have been circed. But they will know that it is a very damaging, painful thing, that has life-long repercussions.
So I expect that my children will feel the way I do about people who are circed (male or female) - I just feel terribly sad that that happened to them. And I wish they had all of their body parts.
And I'm SO glad that all of my children have all of their body parts.
This was an issue with a friend of mine who circed her son, in fact - she was really upset by the fact that I felt sorry for her son (which I did, and still do).
