Below is a petition that I wrote to alert the medical community of the importance of foreskin regeneration. I wrote it in like 30 minutes so I apologize if the consensus is not crafted enough. I will revise it later and add more as time goes by. When there are enough signatures, I will send it to congress, regeneration medicine, and organizations to research foreskin regeneration so that all men can be healed. Later on, I'll focus on eliminating infant circumcision completely. If you wish to sign the petition, the link is below:

Everyday baby boys are mutilated at day one of birth through a heinous act known as circumcision without their consent. In this barbaric act, a small piece of skin is not simply snipped from the male penis. Also "snipped" off are the five most sensitive parts of the male genitals, thousands of fine touch receptors known as Meissner's corpuscles, the mobile foreskin, frenar band, frenulum, up to 20,000 nerve endings, and other essential anatomical parts that make it possible for men to live healthy sex lives. This is the equivalent of removing the clitoris and labia from females. Without the stimulation that these missing parts provide, some men must engage in risky sexual behaviors such as viewing pornography, acting on fetishes or even committing rape in order to make up for what they lost. Unfortunately, these men don't really know what the cause is. They may think it's their fault, but it's actually circumcision that is responsible for their socially unacceptable behavior. Moreover, circumcision causes irreparable psychological damage and disrupts the bonding process between child and mother. This is damage that men will have to live with their entire lives. It is the equivalent of child abuse, torture, and slavery. Furthermore, it's inevitably the worst pain a human being could possibly go through. Imagine cutting off the most nerve innervated part of the body part off of an infant without anesthesia. The worst part is circumcision has absolutely no medical benefits! It only rakes in money for the doctors and hospitals. Greed and capitalism is the motive... Circumcision is the worst act of deviancy ever done to men in secrecy.

As long as this act continues to exist and any men lacerated by this act are not completely healed I cannot feel assured. I will not feel at ease. I could stand on a dock and the waters would constantly rise before me forming relentless deluges. No matter how calm the wind is nearby restlessness will always vex me and I tell you now that I will continue be restless to no end. I will forever be disturbed from this day on no matter how calm the wind is nearby or how soft the river flows even with its slow harmonious movements. I see a vision that all men will at last be able to experience every wonderful feeling that god designed them to feel. In this vision, every old man, every young man, every boy, every infant, and ALL of god's children will go through life with something to truly look forward to when they glance at the glimmering illuminations in the distance! In this clear vision, all men will fall in love with women the way they were meant to, know how it really feels to view women, and be able to lust freely with no limits. And ALL men who fall in love with women will be able to make them truly happy. In this powerful vision that is so powerful that it is making almost every building in the world shake before me, ALL men will no longer be afraid to express the empowering emotions they feel to the women they love. Men pass through life once. At last, ALL men will pass through life once knowing they were satisfied. And when the moment their love reaches the climax, ALL men will know that their special moment will be truly authentic and not just mere illusions shrouded by insanity. This is a vision that will be painted on the blank canvas before me in no longer than five years. In this vision, the mothers of ALL sons will truly be the mothers of their sons as they walk together in the highest places on the earth. And this will be empirical. This is no senseless wish. No longer will young boys have to be slaves to low self-esteem and feelings of inferiority. Together...men and women will fly in the sky, over the oceans, in a dream that lasts forever! Let ALL men, ALL women, EVERY child, and all remnants of human beings reach self-actualization and know what life really has to offer. Let the light shine through my godforsaken bloody torn body! As long as I exist on the very surface of mankind's destruction, there will be a fight for justice. My arms may tear from my very body, my eyes may be replaced with solid metal, every part of my organs will no longer function, and my legs could be separated from me yet my spirit will never dissipate.

This does not have to be a vision. There is technology called foreskin regeneration which can fully regenerate foreskins. One nonprofit organization named Foregen is currently researching this technology. This is different from foreskin restoration because it fully restores all of the nerve endings, anatomy, muscles, and blood vessels of the foreskin. Unfortunately, the medical community refuses to recognize the importance and demand of foreskin regeneration. This technology can make men whole again. At last, we can be satisfied. The purpose of this petition is to show that there is a need for foreskin regeneration and that there is demand for the procedure. Also, men are willing to pay to regenerate their foreskins through this procedure. This WILL be a reality. The medical community just needs to know that there is a demand for foreskin regeneration.

 

Sincerely,

The Undersigned

I refuse to sign anything that blames RAPE on circumcision.  This is disgusting.  I don't support RIC, but I cannot have it be blamed for rape.

I did not say that ALL men rape because of circumcision. I said SOME.  Note that I also said EVEN committing rape. Not saying it's the sole cause. You don't have to agree with that part but it's up to you. Perhaps I exaggerated a bit too much. I'll fix that later. If you agree with foreskin restoration and would restore your foreskin, then be sure to sign.

Nope, if I sign a petition, I put my real name to it ... so it has to be something I can truly get behind.

Why don't you re-write your petition?

No.  You see, men rape women b/c they want to have power over them.  NOT b/c of something that happened when they were infants.  They do it b/c they see women as objects, not human, of b/c they want to inflict pain on them.  NOT b/c they were circ'd as infants. 

 

Why don't you rewrite your petition and THEN post it?  I'm not a man, and I don't have a penis, so I won't be restoring anything - but I do support men who want that for themselves.

Men who have been abused as children rape to gain control and power. Is circumcision not sexual abuse? Did you know that the doctors actually need to give the infants erections before cutting off their foreskins?

I'm intrigued by your mission, Tyler.

 

Is your petition supported by any of the major intactivist organizations?

 

Why are you so interested in the intactivist movement?  What drew you to it?

 

Thank you for bringing this important potential legislation to our attention and to our leaders.

I have a strong desire for justice. That is all. I also seek to get rid of poverty. My aim is not only to be a part of the intactivist movement. I aim to be a civil rights leader and until I find equality for ALL living beings, I will be disturbed everyday that I live. These are my visions and they will be fulfilled. The thing I hate most are individuals who rely on sensibility alone to support acts such as circumcision. Those with faulty beliefs are delusional. It's empirical that cirumcision is wrong even to a 4 year old. It's logical that it is a root cause of problems in society. And the evidence is out there, yet people still deny that it is wrong.

I'm not going to bother arguing with a delusional individual. It doesn't take much to see that circumcision does have an effect on rape rates.

Hi again. 

 

After careful discussion, we decided that because the text of this petition is offensive to many in our community, the thread is staying closed. Many baseless generalizations are made here that naturally make folks uncomfortable. 

 

That said, if there is a desire to restructure the petition and have a discussion about how to improve the text of it, a new thread can be started in the Intactivism subforum.

 

Feel free to PM with any questions.  Thanks for understanding!
