Thank you for visiting my website. Circumcision is an issue which I feel strongly about and have spent lots of time working to stop. For over a century infant circumcision has thrived on lies, ignorance, and fear of the natural body. In the Victorian Era it was believed that masturbation was harmful and circumcising infants would stop it. In the 1940's and 50's parent were told that if their boys weren't circumcised they would have an impossible time keeping clean and suffer from a multitude of infections. Today parents are told that leaving their boys intact will cause him to suffer from any number of foreskin related maladies.
Today, routine infant circumcision is no longer recommended by any national medical organisation. There may be evidence of some medical benefits, but the consensus is clearly that none of them are sufficient enough to recommend the procedure and the harms are just as great. New research is indicating that the foreskin is not as useless as it was once believed and a growing number of men are upset at having been circumcised against their will as infants. Today, routine infant circumcision no longer has any place in a civilised nation.
This may not be the most complete resource available on circumcision, but I hope to provide my own unique perspective on the issue. I also hope to provide some resources that can be used by my fellow anti-circumcision activists (or "intactivists") to use in the cause for bodily integrity.
