Oh, I just noticed you said for college/university students. Eric is in high school. I wonder if he knows anyone who might be interested.

I can't imagine they'd turn away a high school student!
Have him look into it, if he'd be interested!

I emailed it to the two college students I know. They're both anti-circ, and they're both good writers. Thanks!

I posted it everywhere in my building. Today I walked by one flyer and I noticed that someone had written, next to the baby: Please don't cut my penis!
