I was not aware of this because I don't venture outside of the CAC forum, as I do not have any children yet (yet, I feel so very passionate about stopping circumcision, that it is and will probably always will be my most primary cause).

But I don't know how to change add a signature.

Up at the top of the page, click on User CP. Then go to edit signature.

At first I didn't want to change it but then since there was a childs feelings at risk, I ended up toning it down. Which funnily enough gave me room to add another link :

Great job on all of the siggies guys!

You know.... I don't get their logic in saying a mommy (or daddy) with a circumcised son might get offended. If you had a "Stop women's physical assault!", would you have to tone it down because the husband's mother (the battered female's MIL) might get offended because her son was convicted of it, KWIM? I'm sure I'll get heck from the mods for this and idk if what I'm saying makes sense, but it's about PROTECTING THE INNOCENTS' RIGHTS. Maybe I should better have said: "Stop spanking your kids!" siggy and having to tone it down so you don't offend those parents who DO spank.

i'm so excited and happy to see this effort. thank you, all of you. parents of girls only, not parents at all, regretful parents, health professionals- anyone who values genital integrity. let people know the message. it's not 'ok' anymore. it's not a choice.

what a wonderful way to work up to genital integrity week.

(you got it yet microsoap? honestly, it took me a few.)

w00t everybody! go team! if everybody got as excited as they do every 4 years when the parties are practically the same in effect, we could make a real change!

*whew!* That was easier than I thought. Just how a little knowledge can teach one that the intact penis is easier to care for!

I'm a fan of the D.O.C. video on the history and function of the foreskin. For those unwilling to watch a graphic circumcision video, it can be a peaceful way to educate.

i could just cry.

the groundswell from people from throughout the boards is so gratifying.

keep it up, guys. every post is a chance to walk with a protest sign for those who can't get to dc, a chance to educate for those who aren't teachers, a chance to change society from within.

Can someone help me? I know how to put a link in my sig but how can I rename it? You know, so it says "stop RIC" and it will link to this board or another site.

Thanks!

There's a little button at the top of the reply window that is the earth with a little paper-clip looking thing. That button will help you do that.

I don't have an intact son, but I have an intact daughter and I believe in body integrity for all children. That's why I have no circ in my siggy.
