“[I]t is the writer's duty to write fiction which promotes virtue, the good, the beautiful, and above all, the true. ... It is the writer's duty to hate injustice, to defy the powerful, and to speak for the voiceless. To be ... the severest critics of our own societies.”
― Edward Abbey, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast
I hate being circumcised, there I said it, I have nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about, we are all adults here. If I could help it, I would have never of allowed this to be done to myself let alone anybody else, EVER. MY BODY, MY CHOICE. I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to be normal, to be like how you are intended to be, is there? NO! I have seen photos, I have seen videos, I have researched, I am outraged, I am changed. It blows my mind and breaks my heart at the same time that anybody could intentionally hurt anyone for no reason whatsoever, especially infants and children.
In my opinion, non-essential/unnecessary (strictly *vanity* cosmetic) body modification is the marring of nature's/God's perfect design for us and is completely and totally against my belief system. I can only ask of you to support the research being facilitated by the good folks behind foregen.org Please understand that if I can be made whole again as God intends me to be, I will do it, no doubt in my mind now, I see a whole man, and I say to myself 'that is how I am supposed to look.' If I ever commit myself to someone they will have to support me and be okay with me wanting to embark upon the journey to becoming whole again. To put it in 'transgendered terms,' I am a whole man in a cut body lol! :-)
Don't take my word for it:
'Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.' -Gandhi
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it. ~Margaret Fuller
(Daily Quaker Quote) "It is bound to be difficult trying to live by ideals for which the slowly maturing world is not quite ready. But it is the price that must be paid for prophetic vision and it is a risk well worth taking." (Rufus Jones, 1927)
"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
The power of a movement lies in the fact that it can indeed change the habits of people. This change is not the result of force but of dedication, of moral persuasion. ~Stephen Biko
Circumcision indeed is of value if you obey the law; but if you break the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. So, if those who are uncircumcised keep the requirements of the law, will not their uncircumcision be regarded as circumcision? Then those who are physically uncircumcised but keep the law will condemn you that have the written code and circumcision but break the law. For a person is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is true circumcision something external and physical. Rather, a person is a Jew who is one inwardly, and real circumcision is a matter of the heart-it is spiritual and not literal. (Romans 2:25-29, NRSV)
Christ says, 'When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth.' John 16:13
Listen! I, Paul, am telling you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you. Once again I testify to everyman who lets himself be circumcised that he is obliged to obey the entire law. You who want to be justified by the law have cut yourselves off from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit, by faith, we eagerly wait for the hope of the righteousness. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything; the only thing that counts is faith working through love. (Galatians 5:2-6, NSRV)
'The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.'

Forced upon me, because it was forced upon him. The mark on my penis is ultimately the mark of my father, and I want nothing to do with it, because he wants nothing to do with me and I in turn want nothing to do with anything associated with him. I wish I could erase this constant reminder of him but I can’t. ~ ME
You aren't cutting up & scaring the bits of the boy; you are cutting up & scarring the bits of the man he will become. You aren't cutting a boy; you are cutting a man in the making. Think about it. ~ ME
Cut cock still looks weird to me; bare, naked, incomplete. Unnatural if you will...
*My own included; it's been a long time since I've been undressed in front of another man, and the thought of him seeing my nakedness, not to mention my scarring, makes me feel a bit uncomfortable to say the least... :-/
*I've always disliked scars, and I dislike the one in question the most. I can deal with scarring incurred as result of an accident, those can't be helped, but I can't deal with the ones incurred as result of an unnecessary intentional act... those can be helped. :-/
I talk about all this, albeit melodramatically, the last two paragraphs in particular; because I want to get people to stop and think, particularity men, about just how abnormal, how against the natural order of things this unnecessary practice really is. Do I really have issues with my body image to the point that it would prevent me from having and maintaining a normal intimate relationship? No. Am I 'mental?' No. Do I want to shake people's consciousness into giving more than a passing thought, a thought period for that matter, as to why part of their God given body was altered for no reason, why the God given body of other's is altered for no reason? Yes.
If you are pro foreskin 'restoration,' recovering your glans with stretched out shaft skin; don't even think about wasting your fucking time trying to shove that bull shit down my throat, I will shove back. Shaft skin isn't, and can never be the foreskin organ; the only glimmer of hope to get back even part of one's God given foreskin, is through regenerative medicine i.e. what foregen is trying to raise funds for.

Bible Verses about Circumcision for Christians:
“Behold, I, Paul, tell you that if you be circumcised, Christ will be of no advantage to you.” – Gal 5:2

“For there are many who rebel against right teaching; they engage in useless talk and deceive people. This is especially true of those who insist on circumcision for salvation. They must be silenced. By their wrong teaching, they have already turned whole families away from the truth. Such teachers only want your money.” – Titus 1:10-11
”Watch out for those wicked men – dangerous dogs, I call them – who say you must be circumcised. Beware of the evil doers. Beware of the mutilation. For it isn’t the cutting of our bodies that makes us children of God; it is worshiping him… with our spirits.” – Phil 3:2-3
“And I testify again to every male who receives circumcision, that he is in debt to keep the whole Law. You who do so have been severed from Christ…you have fallen from grace.” – Gal 5:3
“As God has called each man, in this manner let him walk. And thus I command in all the churches. Was any man called in the circumcision [Old Covenant] Let him not try to become uncircumcised. Has anyone been called in the uncircumcision [New Covenant in Christ] Let him not be circumcised! Circumcision is nothing. And uncircumcision is nothing but the keeping of the commandments of God. Let each man remain in that condition in which he was called.” – 1 Cor. 7:17
“And some men came and were teaching the brethren, ‘Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of Moses, you cannot be saved.’ But Paul and Barnabas together had great dissension and disputing with these men. . .

"I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." -Psalm 139:14-16
"So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." -Genesis 1:27'
"Circumcision is based upon the erroneous principle that boys are so badly fashioned by the Creative Power that they must be reformed by the surgeon." -Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, born on this day in 1821 and the first woman to receive a medical degree in the United States.'
