No Words

You might have read my recent post about our decision to not circumcise our son.

I found a post last night on a intactivist website, and I must say I think it is one of the most horrifying things I have ever seen. After I saw it I needed to just go a hold Wyatt for a bit, thankful knowing that nothing like that would happen to him. Let me say that I know there are plenty of people who circumcise their sons and everything works out o.k. But there are also those out there who are not so lucky. I have seen tons of pictures of different complications and deformities due to circumcisions, but nothing like what a saw last night. The worst part about it is that it is not something medically necessary at all. Most people argue that an uncircumcised boy will be made fun of in the locker room, or that he won’t understand why he looks different from his father. But can you look at this man and explain to me how he doesn’t question why he looks the way he does, or can you imagine that he wasn’t more than a little insecure in the locker room?

Circumcision Harm

Complications are possible and almost always irreversible. Personally, I would not be able to forgive myself if this was my son. There are no words to help make this better. Please help me in educating parents about their choices, and put an end to this horrible practice.
