Another happy post to balance out today's gloom. Since it's December, let's celebrate all the young men who entered the world this year who were NOT subjected to circ!


DS3 joined our family last week and became the latest member of the family to keep all his body parts from birth. He is one of three intact brothers and so far his generation in our family (which also includes one male cousin) is 100% intact. Most of my siblings have not had children yet but it's looking like all of us have decided to end the legacy of circumcision in our family.

may my heart always be open to little birds who are the secrets of living whatever they sing is better than to know  - e.e. cummings

My DS was born in January and is intact. My DH and my brother and most all other male friends and family are circed. However, when I told the grandparents our decision, my Dad says he was never circed either. So I guess I followed the "look like Grandpa" argument.

Honestly, it was internet message boards like this one that turned me into an intactivist. This one and the debate board at Babycenter. If my first child had been a boy, we would have circed. And even though my DS was born in Canada, where circing isn't recommended or paid for, I likely would have found a way to have it done were it not for all you persuasive intactivists who take the time to come on the internet and debunk all the myths. Thank you!

I saw an 8 wk old at LLL yesterday that was intact (and cloth diapered!)!

*ETA: Unfortunately my LLL is pretty mainstream, so the circ'd out number the intact. DS and this little babe are the only 2 intact out of our group of mostly boys.

And my intact son was born in 12/2006, but it was close to 2007!

My DS born in May is whole - as are his two older brothers.

And a friend's boy born in February was left intact after a long battle with her DH!

Ds#3 is intact, mainly because of this board.

My older 2 are circed because I left the decision up to Dh, even though I didn't really like it. This time I said no and my bitty baby is 100% complete.

My friend's son born in July! I had posted when her first son was born and it did not end well, but she didn't make the same decision for her ds2 so he is intact

Intact bunny boy born in March. And if the second bunny turns out to be a boy, that's going to make three intact males in our family. (DH is intact as well - though I wonder if he'd mind if I shared that with everyone. )

My ds is intact - he was born in July.

I was a lurker here in CAC & did not even make my first post until after I had convinced dh & we were officially leaving ds intact!

It makes me wonder how many other lurkers are out there!

My DS was born in April 2007 and is intact. I never even contemplated doing anything else, even though DH is circumcised.

Good point...but you could also parse the title to mean "babies who ARE intact and WERE born in 2007"...or should I change the title?

I had two nephews born and left the way God made them in 2007. One was a tough sell, but they did the right thing in the end

They joined my two intact sons... a good legacy!
