This is a beautiful slide show, and especially poignant because of the song that accompanies it, in which the singer expresses his grief for his lost foreskin. Thank you. I hope lots of people see this. This might be a really great addition to our video educational options, because it normalizes the intact penis, talks about its benefits, gives a voice to the men who feel cheated, and mentions restoration and all in only a few minutes.<br><br>
WOW.<br><br>

Thanks for the kind words gang. I have two others that I think would appeal to the same audience:<br><br>

YouTube is getting to be a great intactivist tool. Thanks Ron Low,<br>
James Loewen and others who have taken the time to digitize and<br>
load up this great footage.

Speaking of complaining about people's ebay listings and stuff, somebody complained about my "It's Beautiful" foreskin video so YouTube pulled it. It only showed works of art that your toddler might see at the museum, and the music was utterly benign. There is no appeal process, so I will edit it slightly and re-post.<br><br>
The replacement is available here (no matter how many times I have to re-post it):<br><a href="http://YouTube.com/TLCTugger" target="_blank">http://YouTube.com/TLCTugger</a><br><br>

Um, I'm all about intactivism and fighting circumcision, but singing a song about how beautiful and attractive the foreskin is? Kinda creepy. Kind of on the same level as those pro-circ advocates waxing poetic about circ'd penises.<br><br>
Just saying.....

I think the difference is that someone can sing about a body part in honor of that part, but singing about cutting that part off other people is something different entirely.<br><br>
Like, if someone wrote a poem about how they are happy and proud to not be circumcised, I would not see that as creepy but I would see a poem about how a doctor likes circumcision as creepy. In the same sense, i would not see a poem about how a boy enjoys his circumcised penis to be creepy...but a poem about someone else wanting to circumcise is<br><br>
I cant really fully explain that...

I've been poking around YouTube, which includes full-bore infant genital mutilation videos and "educational" shows with explicit close-ups demonstrating penetrative gynecological procedures. You may recall they deleted, my foreskin tribute video. They said it had inappropriate content. They would have done nothing unless someone complained. They could have just flagged it as adult if they wanted to be nice.<br><br>
I cut out a few of the shots with the most photorealistic art works and re-posted it here:<br><a href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=iyBvd4v6B3k" target="_blank">http://youtube.com/watch?v=iyBvd4v6B3k</a><br><br>
If they delete it again they'll probably delete me altogether.<br><br>

I think it's called "it's beautiful" because all of the slides are of art.

OK, I'm going to try one more time. For this last one, I had cut out anything that looked remotely photorealistic. I guess next I'll make sure all the genitalia don't look remotely turgid (at least in close-up).<br><br>
It's just silly when you can go to the same site and watch an innocent pedestrian being run down in a crosswalk.<br><br>

Last night when you said this I went to check it out using the very last link in this thread to pull it up.<br><br>
I didn't have time to post this last night, barely any time now,<br>
That link was working and I wanted to say,"Its not gone, its still there!" Today its gone unfortunately but how odd it is that after you post "Its gone. :/" it was still there.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"><br>
I don't get it. I'm not saying I don't believe you, just maybe You Tube has a way of showing its gone to some ppl first and it takes awhile for it to be completely gone? KWIM? Sorry so long winded. Just thinking out loud here.<br><br>
Why would art work be pulled and the circumfetish creeps get to continue to play their little games? Is there a way to appeal to You Tube? Enough of us crying foul to keep it up there?<br><br>
I do NOT think its anywhere near what the circumfetishes do when glorifying the freshly mutilated sexual organ of a newborn saying things like its a pretty red rose or "magic". Praising the act of cutting off normal body parts doesn't come close to showing what "normal" really is. What better way to do that than art?
