I just don't understand why pro-RIC threads keep popping up in other forums. They always get pulled, since they are against the UA. It is best to just report and ignore. For those of you who don't know how to report a post, you can click on the red triangle on the left of the post.

But it is so amazing that so many MDC moms want to have thier baby boys circumcised for social conformity. I think a lot of them won't admit to it, so we don't realize how many there are here.

I used to think that an intactivist siggy on MDC would be 'preaching to the choir', but now I know that isn't the case. The more often a person sees an idea, the more familiar and comfortable it seems. This is just like how commercial advertising works. The more often I see a certain brand of shoes/cereal/french fries/etc. the more appealing it becomes.

Even on MDC, we need to do all we can to make not circumcising seem normal and popular.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

I have often thought the same thing. Any mdc mom who has a intact son should have the or in there siggy so that others can see it and maybe think and head over here. Thanks for posting this.

I rather like my siggie, but I don't post at other MDC boards, so I'm preaching to the choir.

Maybe there could be Intactivist Ambassadors to welcome newbies in Pleased to Meet You and the DDC's and get them over to the CAC forum to do a little reading...

*snicker*...I sent my neighbor a link to a thread that I started about a situation that she was going through with her pediatric dentist & the fact that he said not to breastfeed after a year. Anywho, she read through the thread and asked me the other day about my "No Circ" sign in my siggy. So yes, it does make a difference!

I actually wish I could afford a subscription to one of the mainstream boards I post to, just so I could HAVE a nocirc siggie and links to mothering, lol.

Yeah, but her siggie is intactivism:
"OUCH! Why would anyone want to do THAT?!"

I agree! I just meant that we are not always "preaching to the choir" in the sense that not everyone here is "in the choir" already

"Is your siggy intactivist enough???"

I'd like to think so

I kind of miss my old one but I had it for over a year.

For those who don't remember or for anyone who wants it :

Only in America do we attempt to outlaw genital piercings for consenting adult females but allow cosmetic surgery on unconsenting infant males.

And those that have made the mistake of circ. but have learned from their mistake and are dedicated to informing others.

I'd like to add that anyone who would like precious little boys to have the same protection that precious little girls have should add one of these too.

I post all over the place. So, no preachin to the choir here. Oh, I rather miss my old one too (and yours FI. I liked it)

It was: The less there is to justify a traditional custom the harder it is to get rid it.

I think I like mine now. But my siggy *must* remain anti circ. I'm obsessed. But is it obsession if it's dealing with protection and nature?

Never thought it necessary for preaching to the choir reasons, but if people are joining and posting who believe circ is OK, I'm up for having an intactivist sig!
