i know i’ve said this before but goddammit a hairless vulva on a grown person doesn’t make it look like child’s. sure it’s really irritating when people act like all vulvas shouldn’t have hair when it should be a personal decision but let’s not act…

yeah well it still looks creepy as hell

Thanks, I’m sure a large segment of people reading this enjoy being told that their perfectly valid grooming choices are creepy.

THANK YOU. I hate when people describe a shaved pubic region as looking “prepubescent.”

Erm, but it does?

There are more changes to one’s genital region during puberty than just the growing of hair.

This movie came out a few years before I learned about circumcision, so needless to say, it went over my head.

It’s very encouraging that I see more and more foreskin restoration blogs on Tumblr. While I imagine part of that is just due to Tumblr gaining popularity, it’s also a good sign that foreskin restoration is becoming more widely known to those who want it.

No, I’m anti-child circumcision. I don’t support any form of mutilation of children who can’t consent that isn’t done to save their lives like a surgery that leaves a scar to remove a tumor or something along those lines.

It has been proven time and time again that circumcision actually does less to prevent infections than proper cleaning and using condoms during penetrative forms of sex. There’s no need to cut your kid. It’s their body, not yours.

Let them make the choice if they decide to.

I just realized I missed this year’s Genital Integrity Awareness Week by nearly a month.

whoops

if you seriously believe that cutting off a baby’s healthy genital tissue will reduce the risk of STDs (including HIV), penile/prostate cancer, UTIs, or any other BS the US medical system tries to claim it does, you need to wake up.

it’s like saying that cutting off the outer ear will prevent inner ear infections, or cutting off the nose will prevent sinus infections and brain tumors. it is entirely illogical.

every single human being is born with a prepuce, it’s there for a reason. why won’t doctors adhere to their hippocratic oath when it comes to those who cannot defend themselves? no possibility of health benefits warrants amputation of natural, healthy tissue.

peace on earth begins with birth, i truly believe that. babies are human beings, and each one deserves to live his/her/their life without being strapped down to have the most sensitive part of the body turn and cut.

EDUCATE YOURSELVES.

I am an intactivist & support babies rights to not have their genitals mutilated.
