I don't ever have dreams about it but I have said and sincerely meant it that if I ever won a large sum of money from the lotto or a game show I would donate a large portion to intactivism. I'd love to stand on the podium for interviews after winning power ball just to announce I was donating 75% of my winnings to Intact America or something. Of course, I never play the lotto so chances are high I won't actually win.

when you're reading a book, or listening to tv/radio and you see/hear "circum" you start to bristle a little.. even though it was only circumstance, or circumference.

You've spent so much time reading up on the subject that you're afraid to even say words that begin with "circum-" for fear that you'll have a very embarrassing slip of the tongue that will be hard to explain away!

This happens to me every time - and my gut gets a big knot in it.

"Uncircumcised" is a word you eschew.

Someone you know is pregnant and the gender you hope the baby is depends on their opinion on circ.

When you get a book that has pictures of penises (for informational purposes) you look to see if the "normal" penises are intact or circed.

When the majority of the links you post on your Facebook are anti-circ related.

When you have to see a circ'd baby penis on a regular basis, and all you can think is "Ow, I'm so so sorry for you!" And you never get used to the look of it, but you have to pretend like it doesn't matter, because you don't want to start a fight with the parents.

i am SO with you all...and hoping that a pro-circ-er has only girls

for me, i dont hestitate to leave my son's diaper open a bit before i close it up hoping someone will say something so i can educate!

and when i glance over thinking " my goodness that boy barely has a penis" and i realized its because he's circ-ed

... when you would love to replace the term "uncircumsized" with "intact" of just plain "normal"!
