The Making of an Exceptional Young Man: End of Day 5

The fact that Waylong rode 17.6 km, to and from Karen Art Village, speaks about his desire to learn and become a better man. That he added that mileage to the 37.6 km we did in the morning speaks a lot about his determination to ride from Nairobi to Kisumu in December.

Half Way Cycle Countdown: Waylong's Getting the Groove

We kicked off Waylong's 5th day visit with our family with a morning ride. I am glad that he's getting better as we continue counting down to our Half Way Cycle fundraising event from Nairobi to Kisumu.

The funds raised will enable us to provide a halfway house for boys exiting juvenile prison in 2019.

Be the person you needed when you were younger... That's what keeps coming to our minds whenever the nudge, stirring and calling to reach out to one single exceptional young man stirs our hearts.

That's what we - every adult man - ought to be to every boy and young man out there. It could be the messenger at your office, the security guard, the boy showing interest in your precious daughter and for @lifesongkenya, the boys and young men we seek to empower in and out of juvenile prison.

What do Corn Flakes have to do with your penis?

Circumcision began in the United States as a way to keep boys from masturbating and engaging in promiscuous behavior. The theory behind this was that since the foreskin was known as a sensitive organ if removed, it would lessen the sexual desires of men. 
John Harvey Kellogg was known to be one of the biggest proponents for circumcision to curb sexual desire. He also made it a point to say that anesthesia should never be used during the surgery. 
Kellogg created Corn Flakes in an attempt to curb sexual desires in both boys and girls. His thoughts were that bland food paired with circumcision would keep sexual desires tempered as well. 
Here is a look at one of John Harvey Kellogg's statements on circumcision: "A remedy which is almost always successful [to stop masturbation] in small boys is circumcision, especially when there is any degree of phimosis. The operation should be performed by a surgeon without administering an anesthetic, as the brief pain attending the operation will have a salutary effect upon the mind, especially if it be connected with the idea of punishment. The soreness which continues for several weeks interrupts the practice, and if it had not previously become too firmly fixed, it may be forgotten and not resumed. If any attempt is made to watch the child, he should be so carefully surrounded by vigilance that he cannot possibly transgress without detection. If he is only partially watched, he soon learns to elude observation, and thus the effect is only to make him cunning in his vice." - John Harvey Kellogg, physician (1852-1943)

Over 100 babies die per year from routine infant circumcision. Often, the foreskins are used in makeup and other cosmetics.. #FACTS. So, if female genital alteration is called genital mutilation, then why isn't it called the same for boys?? None of our parts are "extra", and they certainly aren't for sale! .

I don't think I will ever understand how someone can't be a parent or grandparent. As 7 years ago I gave up my life, soon as Luka was born, to me kids always come first... pity it's not like that in everyone's eyes...#singlemom #boysdeservebetter #hopefullynextyearsabetteryear

There is no god anywhere who wants you to harm you baby. Your baby is born perfect, leave them that way. Repost from @intactnewhampshire using @RepostRegramApp - MRI studies indicate permanently altered brain after neonatal circumcision. "A neurologist who saw the results[, too, and] postulated that the data indicated that circumcision affected most intensely the portions of the victim's brain associated with reasoning, perception and emotions. Follow up tests on the infant one day, one week and one month after the surgery indicated that the child's brain never returned to its baseline configuration. In other words, the evidence generated by this research indicated that the brain of the circumcised infant was permanently changed by the surgery." - Paul D.

Inspired by those self care Instagram pages, here’s something I decided to write for those restoring. I believe my greatest strength is how I have managed to stay positive and passionate about restoration despite seeing little to no progress for the last 5 years. Here’s how I do it. I know these tactics will not work for all men and some are very controversial/twisted and will raise eyebrows but I spent too much time writing this to not publish it.

Raising Good Men. Someone I constantly refer back to for advice, reassurance and practical tips on raising well rounded young men is guru Steve Biddulph. He recently wrote a piece on the importance of healthy male role models for young boys - in my opinion, it’s a mandatory read for EVERY parent. “Toxic masculinity is not the norm, and its not inevitable, we can change it and it starts with teaching our boys” (I’ve popped the link in my bio) Thank you Steve for being an incredible teacher, advocate and inspiration 🙌🏼👊🏻💯

I would recommend this to restoring men, intactivists and even parents as this book is just as much about the ethics and harms of male genital cutting as it as about foreskin restoration. Being an old publication, it misses out on the newer restoration techniques but this book is still one of the biggest restoration resources you'll find.

On the sides of every page, there's a column titled 'men's voices' which are letters sent by men to UNCIRC (Bigelow's organization) which was later incorporated into NORM (National Organization​ of Restoring Men). These are painfully honest accounts of men talking about their non consensually modified bodies, their anger and grief surrounding it and the excitement and hope upon discovering restoration. There's also information on surgical reconstruction, touch up surgeries and the doctors who perform them (I doubt any of them are practicing today though). I do hope that somewhere though Bigelow leaves a disclaimer clarifying that non surgical restoration doesn't work for all men and its effectiveness/success is limited by each person's biology/genetics and/or ethnicity.

It would be really interesting to see a 2018 version of this book detailing all the recent developments in the fight for genital autonomy and the role of regenerative medicine in foreskin regeneration, a work that is currently being attempted by Foregen, an Italian and US based non profit organization. It would be a dream come true for me to be a part of the team that makes it happen and it's one of the reasons I chose to study at a university which is home to one of the largest regenerative medicine and stem cell research hubs (for the sake of my privacy, I cannot reveal which). I digress. Check this book out, friends. You can download it for free if you do some digging around.

Breaks my heart to think that some day there will be someone who tries to make my son feel bad because he likes to make bouquets, he LOVES glitter, and his hot pink rain boots. Not that it matters; but he also loves trucks, dirt, and dinosaurs ...Do you know why it doesn’t matter? They are children...exploring all things that interest them. Stop shaming little boys because of your own insecurities #rantover #boymom #letchildrenbechildren #toddlermom #boysdeservebetter

Secular circumcision rates are falling and I do believe that at one point, circumcision rates in places like USA, Canada and Australia will fall below 10% but I'd like to remind everyone that the majority of circumcised males in the world are Muslims. The problem here is that the Muslim population is rising day by day (not necessarily because of conversion but higher birth rates). I predict that any fall in the global circ rates brought about by lower non-religious circumcision rates will be offset by the increase in circ rates brought about by the rising Muslim population. In fact, there's a chance that the global circumcision rates may even go above the 30-33% it is right now due to this. It's a scary thought.

While Jewish intactivism is gaining popularity, there really hasn't been much effort placed towards Muslims. In my opinion, most Muslims also seem less open to the idea of not circumcising (which is sad because circumcision isn't even a religious obligation for them). This is why I believe it's really important for more Muslims who are against it to speak up so that other Muslims can be swayed. I just wish more Muslims questioned it and there were more Muslim intactivist resources. The Muslims Against Circumcision of Children (MACC) and Intact Muslim Network communities on Facebook are just so small and to my knowledge, most of the people on it aren't even Muslims. Check out the link in my bio to see how circumcision actually contradicts the Quran.

My dear friend, Brother K, brought tears to my eyes with his powerful presentation today, at the 15th International Symposium on Genital Autonomy and Childrens’ Rights. He told his story of discovering the truth behind genital mutilation (circumcision), why he changed his name, and how he fights to end this horror. I have worked with this man for four years, and I can truly and proudly say that he is one of my best friends. Beyond that, BK has been an incredible mentor and support system for me. I know I speak for many when I say I have learned so much from this courageous, compassionate, brave human being. I don’t know where we’d be without you, bro. So much love. 💪🏽❤️
