It's clear that I am just one of a great many men who have been circumcised as children or adults and deeply regret it.
 
 

Those circumcised in infancy and therefore bereft of any palpable knowledge of a foreskin yet nonetheless resent its absence, are in a very special group of their own and deserve our admiration for their ability to understand their loss. Those circumcised as older boys and adults have a tale to tell of resentment and regret which gives the tortured cries of healthy little boys forcefully circumcised against their will the spoken words their screams embody.

 

I joined Mothering in April 2006 - foreskin intact. March 2010 I was circumcised with a tale to tell.

 

The link below is a revelation. It first lists historical accounts of famous men who abhor/red their circumcised penises, followed by something approaching 200 replies from men like me. It's just a dip in the ocean of millions like us across the world, with America at the pinnacle.

It cannot be gainsaid: whether a foreskin is cut off as a medical necessity or at the whim of cultural or misdiagnosed acceptance, a circumcised penis is a crippled penis.

Thank you for your post. 

 

I am sorry for what happened to you.

 

I hope to see a change in US culture in my lifetime, to the point where we understand that amputating part of a non-consenting person's body for anything other than immediate medical indication is a huge human rights violation.


Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.

Thank you Ann-Marita, I long for my foreskin back again but that's a fantasy I must quell.

 

And I share your hope for eventual genital autonomy in the US, because it really is a human rights violation when females are protected from mutilation but males are left as 'fair game', to put it frankly.
