I wanted to this up because I am seeing some posters who I know have intact ds's and who are anti circ without a or in their siggy. If you dont want to use those 2 then there is always the genital integrity ribbon :

You can make a difference please put something in your siggy. We have had more than a few check out the CAC forum and their ds's were saved because of it.

If we talk about intact penises or intact baby boys, for example, it's not as likely to be confused.
It just depresses me that this is even something that needs to be addressed, kwim?

i found a way of when i talking of why i left my son intact which i said i rather have him be 'Unhappy with me by me 'doing nothing' than him being unhappy if I did something 'that he couldn't change'

I just added mine yesterday, but I soon thereafter I noticed that a certain circumcision-related photo thread was blocked, so now I'm wondering if it's offensive to pro-circ religions??? But it's my religion, so, I think I'm too new to know. But it's still there for now.

I was excited when a mainstream board changed its rules and now I can have a siggie there, because I NOW have my pro-intact siggie out there.

I kinda feel like here on MDC our siggie can be a bit more relaxed, I guess I feel that way because there is a show in number-- keep it up! It is just nice to know who has a pro-intact siggie, especially for those posters near me-- I look, I admit it. I do! And I wonder when there isn't one.

What about mine? Is it grammatically correct? I've struggled how to word it. And I've had people tell me it doesn't stand a chance. I have faith it will happen. It will happen! There is a WILL there IS a WAY. It WILL happen. Feel the power people!

Great siggies everyone. I think that I will have to edit mine and add a no circ smiley.

Great thread! I agree - siggies are a great way to spread the word. I've had this one for a while - I think I may try to make it a bit less subtle though.

I love the idea behind this and actually have an extensive siggy set up on my personal hotmail with many links as well...


I also decided to establish a myspace and dedicate most of it to anti-circ info...this has proven a really effective way to network with other intactivist...


I do not edit my siggy either, for any reason/any communication... so whenever I send/reply or forward something, to anyone...

a little seed is planted (and I've had quite an impressive number of people thank me and comment on how helpful it was as a resource for an expecting friend/family member or for themselves...)

I think my video link has a good case for proving the foreskin has a function.

But I wore my Intactivist t-shirt this weekend. The bright yellow one that says (front): "It's A Foreskin... Not A Birth Defect!" (back): "End Genital Mutilation" lol At the Wal-Mart McDonald's, I know a lady with her husband and young kids (under 4, including 1 boy) eating saw it and read the statement. Perhaps I purposely sat on the side (facing her) so she could read it.
