😳No, this is not my story. 😰
I have 3 intact boys, and I thank God I never had to fight my husband to keep our boys whole. It was just common sense and respect for bodily autonomy from both of us.
I hear these stories all 👏 the 👏time 👏.
My heart breaks for the babies. 💔
For the mothers who cry everday with regret weighing heavy in their hearts.
For the fathers who caved against their better judment.
For every parent who was ever bulllied by pediatricians, and the medical system as a whole.
We do SO MANY f!%@*#! up things in this country, but circumcision is at the top of the list.
How dare you inflinct excrutiating pain on an innocent creature of God?
How dare you take something as precious as a FUNCTIONING BODY PART from your sons?
We talk about bonding issues, and everyone acts like they dont have a damn clue.
Take a look at how babies are welcomed into this world....with needles and knives! 💉🔪
If you arent contributing to the solution then you are feeding the problem.
There is no in between.
Men, boys, you have a right to your body, your whole body and I respect that right and will continue to advocate on your behalf.
Boys should be afforded the right to consent, just like girls. Amputating a healthy, functioning part of the body is wrong! Period. "But it looks funny" ✋ stop body shaming "But it can get infected" ✋ most women deal with infections in their reproductive organs and never face amputation. "But his dad is circumcised" ✋ abuse does NOT have to be a cycle.
Brothers this is not to shame anyone who has undergone this amputation without consent, this is to prevent the future generations from the pain and abuse that is unnecessary, cosmetic amputation.
Start respecting and loving #yourwholebaby
ONE year ago today you came into our lives like a little tornado. Your 8 hour labor seemed like a flash (compared to your sister’s 21 hour labor 😬) I never knew what having a son would be like but it’s the most beautiful gift I’ve been blessed with. You are my charmer, little fella. 💙
