I realize this forum is focused on helping individual people with the circumcision decision more than it is a forum of and for intactivists....but when we are trying to help a woman decide for her son or helping a mother to be help sway her husband...we are promoting the normal state of a child - intact - and we are educating.

I found this blog post very helpful in thinking about how we help to educate others. I hope it's of some help here.

so how do you bring it up? my standard question is: what have you found in researching circumcision? the only way i can think to turn it around a bit is to say: have you found out how important the human prepuce (aka foreskin) is?

thoughts?

Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.
