First Intactivist Presidential Candidate!

Everyone seems to have a strong opinion about this guy one way or the other, but I thought this was pretty cool.

“I’m highly aligned with the intactivists,” Yang said. “History will prove them even more correct.”

Yang said he had initially planned to have his sons circumcised, fearing they’d be “self-conscious” if they still had their foreskins. But his wife convinced him otherwise.

I'm the crunchy mom Dr. Amy warned you about.

Interesting !! However, he does seem to be a bit wishy-washy when he states that his intent is to inform parents " that there are costs and benefits". There are no benefits to amputating a baby's foreskin.

Oh yeah, he totally won me over with his "parents should do whatever they want, that was just a comment on Twitter" advocacy.

If he doesn't have a policy proposal, he might as well have said nothing.
