Painted ON a house in my town in GIANT letters (I mean huge!) someone wrote(painted) "CUT CONSUMPTION NOT FORESKIN!"


I was in shock (in a good way) when I saw it!! It's huge and I literally mean painted on their house as if you got on a ladder and painted a giant message right ON your house! lol

I just hope it gets people thinkin'!

I didn't take the pic but found it on online and it is the exact house (and I do live in Vermont so I know it is the same one!)

me, dh and 2 boys = our family (oh and a cat...who is also a male...lol)

Awesome! Do you feel like sharing what town this was in? (nevermind, see edit)

I can't imagine painting anything on my house of any message but if I owned a big building by the airport I sure might paint a circ message on the roof for all the air passengers to see (okay, I probably wouldn't, but maybe).

Edited to add - I just searched google images and I found it - wow!!!

LOL.....OMG I'm surprised someone would do this!! I think I'm sometimes odd for having a anti-circ license plate frame, lol! Honestly, I would drive by again and get their address and write them and let them know how cool it is that they did that! That's funny!

Yowza! I had no idea that had been added to the house, but I love it! I actually lived with the owner of the house for a brief time and am certain that they are not on MDC, but are extremely supportive and passionate about both over consumption and keeping boys intact.

That is so awesome. It combined two of my biggest causes in a clever way for all to see. I love it. That is one of the best quotes ever. After all the posts about the CDC and AAP wanting to change their stance and get it medical coverage and feeling a little down about it all that made me smile.
