And all I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, mamas!<br><br>
When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I had to research...my first son is circ'd and has nothing but problems, and with your help, we are informed and NOT circ'ing this boy!<br><br>
And NOW, I am on other pregnancy boards spreading the word!<br><br>
And wooooo!<br>
Some of those ladies are getting feisty.<br><br>
I seriously just want to bang my head when I hear such bullsh*t answers though.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hammer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hammer"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/soapbox.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="soapbox"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/argue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="argue">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/rant.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rant">:<br><br>
AGGGGGHHHHHH!<br><br>
I suppose I should give some slack since I did it to my first without even questioning anything, or not even having a good bullsh*t excuse (it doesn't hurt, he will look like his dad, etc)...I just did it. Sigh.<br><br>
But, I am proud of me now!

You go, girl! Spread the word! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/clap.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="clap"><br><br>
The fact that you had one circ'd and not the other will make an extra big impact, too, I think, and hopefully squash some of the "but they'll look different" excuses, too!<br><br>
We are proud of you, too! (you can take those other mommas, by the way! They don't have a chance, 'cause you've got the real facts.)<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bow">

No. Seriously. Thank <i>you</i>.<br><br>
Recognizing the wrongfulness of routine and ritual male genital amputation is hard enough, good enough, to merit praise and gratitude.<br><br>
But going beyond that to an actual committment to actively defend and protect little boys against this violation is worthy of much, much more.<br><br>
I was cut without my parents' consent back in the sixties. And every day in this struggle is full of contact with people who <i>still</i> casually, trivially objectify me on the basis of my gender, and deny my individuality and basic humanity without even a passing thought, and dismiss my wounding as nonexistent and then accuse me of psychological instability simply for feeling angry and violated by it.<br><br>
And every woman who stands up to defend the boys still at risk, defends me as well, and is a true heroine.<br><br>
So, no.<br><br>
Seriously.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Thank <i>you</i>.
