However I was so happy when I found this forum here at MDC, it was so wonderful to know other people feel the same way as I do about circ!!!
However, I didn't know very much about circ until I came to MDC and I had no idea there was such a thing as "intactivism". I have definitely learned a lot!!
Course, now I'm one of those "intense" people .

So at some point I got a clue, and I think MDC had a lot to do with it! But can't swear on a stack of Bibles. (Not that that would mean a lot since I'm an atheist. )
MDC is definitely my haven of sanity!

That planted a seed...then I overheard my MW refer to the "Doctors re-examine circumcision book" and she told me that she fought tooth and nail with her Jewish DH about circ. She said "over my dead body" and her son is intact . Anyhow, I borrowed the circ book out of their lending library.
I just happened to find this forum a year ago or so, and I am SUPER happy that I did. I know so much more because of this forum!

NOCIRC's info page pretty much sealed the deal for ME, (and I believe I found NOCIRC through someone's signature here!) but this forum offered some good talking points for DH.
I originally believed all the myths that are commonly spouted about circumcision but, fortunately for my DS, I educated myself in time to keep him intact.

ps...i have a girl and a mystery babe on the way....so either way there will be no circumcision here!
Also, dh is intact so, we're a circ-free family

When we were TTC DS, we were pro circ, me especially, because of my own issues. A friend from elsewhere pointed me to this board. The previous board I'd posted at had a hard time advising me.
I was abused by a man who happened to be intact, and I wanted to circ my son for that reason, it was Frank at these boards who had the courage to say that my son deserved a whole penis despite what I was going through. I have no doubt that without Frank and MDC, I would have had DS circ'd.
