I actually have saved 3 little boys from the horrors of circumcision in a couple of months!<br>
One was a pregnant friend of mine in "real life" who I just explained my own expreience to...and suggested she watch a circ video if she really wanted this done to her son...<br>
I explained how happy and content newborns are just laying in Mommy's arms and nursing...what a wonderful time it is...and how there was <span style="text-decoration:underline;">No Way</span> I, as conflicted at the time I felt, was going to send him off to be circumcised...<br>
So that's the story of how, along with internet resourses, I have participated in ending RIC in my little corner of America.<br>
Oooo...but I also started threads on other sites on the internet people know me at...not parenting sites, but "other" sites...political sites, religious sites...and I added my "circumcision is awful" link....and I've had soooo many people volunteer in those threads that they had changed their mind about circing! And two of them were expecting!<br>
I have a collection of people who want to participate in the "circinfo info" site I'm planning...and these people have never even questioned circumcision before! These people are Americans who never really questioned RIC!<br>
I've lost a lot of battles with this, but just recently I really think I've started winning some here in the US!<br>
Don't give up!

Kelly, just think, you saved two boys and now those two moms will influence two more which will be six for a total and then those six moms will influence 12 more for a total of 18 and so on and so on. Also remember that those intact boys will most likely leave their sons intact so you can double or tripple that number. You are also influencing people on the internet who will choose to leave their sons intact and they will leave their grandsons intact plus, all will influence other people. When the final bell rings, your actions may end up saving hundreds or even thousands of boys.<br><br>
Go ahead and have your warm fuzzy feelings. You have earned them!<br><br><br><br><br>

Thanks, Frank..<br>
I have big warm fuzzy feelings about it...<br>
Some of the biggest, warmest, fuzziest feelings ever....happy little baby boys...not mutilated, because I got up the nerve to confront the issue.<br>
I'm beaming with pride!<br>
A good pride though...thinking about those happy little baby boys...happy men-to-be.<br>
And happy women who will know what sex is supposed to be like, and what motherhood is supposed to be like. Just leaving their son's parts alone will allow bonding to happen. Untainted infancy...just happiness...<br>
Oh, man, I hope the domino effect happens with this...I don't see how it couldn't!<br>
I'm really thinking these little victories are the beginning of the end of RIC in America!

I think you might have, but didn't know it.<br>
I'm thinking there might have been several boys who weren't circed because of you that you'll probably never hear about....

Ya know what, you might be right! I gave Paul Fleiss' book to a friend who was expecting a boy, she circ'd but she let another one of her pregnant friends borrow it, that friend had a girl but decided if she ever has a boy she won't do it.<br><br>
And i have stuff linked in my sig at another board, so who knows, maybe I gave someone some info without knowing it.
