New Dad: Have you had any problems w/ kidlet not being circumcised? With splatter or anything?
Dad #2: No, it's all fused together so it cones the urine into a stream.
New Dad: Oh yea, I know it's fused. I did my research.
Dad #3: You didn't circumcise? (fake shock)
New Dad: We figured it was a one-time deal, there's no way to uncut someone. If he really needs to look like me, he can cut his own penis.
Dad #2: That's exactly it. Let them make the decision themselves.
Dad #3: Yea, we didn't cut her either (motions to daughter)
New Dad: For some reason they call that abuse, but only if it's a vulva

Late nite intactivist chat
ithoughtitoldyou: Intactivst! i love that
me: I used to not really like it, but now I use it all the time.
me: (the same way I don't like the word cuddling)
ithoughtitoldyou: you don't like the word cuddling?
me: yeah, it's too ... childlike. Like you cuddle your kids or your cat, but in a romantic setting it feels more serious to me.
ithoughtitoldyou: so what word do you use?
me: I'm forced to use cuddling obvs lol
me: I need to find a language that has a word for cuddling that I like, and move to the appropriate country.
me: All bets are on Nordic countries.
Do you ever wonder what percentage of posts from the blogs you follow that you actually end up seeing based on the amount of time you spend scrolling/refreshing your dash?
uncutting: For anyone who has Netflix, the foreskin restoration episode of Strange Sex is on there. Season two, episode one. I watched this when it premiered a few years ago, and I was pleased with how it turned out. Despite the title of the show, it doesn’t portray foreskin restoration as weird at all- if I recall, it actually did a pretty decent job of explaining the negative physical and...

Anonymous asked: Transwomen who were circumcised in their infancy were circumcised as males. It's not erasing them to speak of it as a men's issue, because their bodies were male at the time. They're not singling out babies they think might end up transgender, they're singling out male bodied babies. Same goes for non-binaries. It's fairly simple, really.
Anonymous asked: Do you consider intactivism a 'men's rights' issue? I feel that erases trans woman and non-binary people that suffered unwanted circumcision.
embryonic-journey replied to your post: It never ceases to amaze me when people who follow… Because MRAs are misoginistic pricks who want to further oppress women whilst further empowering men. This type of response literally confuses an actual issue, and the way someone else argues about it (or about a related issue). It’s like saying that male circumcision isn’t a real...
It never ceases to amaze me when people who follow this blog make posts making fun of the concept of men’s rights.
Condoms that work like foreskin →
uncutting: kitten-overlord submitted: My first thought when I saw these was that they just replace foreskin. Was this what was being talked about? ——————————————————————— Yeah pretty much, how the movement of the ridges basically just provide (an obviously less effective version of) something that a penis should already have in the form of a foreskin.
I just realized that Tumblr Savior blocks posts that contain any of the blacklisted words anywhere in the body, and not just the tags. So as a result, posts that I would actually prefer to see get blacklisted due to having a peripheral reference to something like Superman.
Anonymous asked: Can you provide us with some resources/information on adult phimosis and treatment alternatives to circumcision? It would be a great help if you knew of any.
viewsfromamommy: hottestblokes: I highly disagree with the fact that Americans use and promote the word “uncut” (even “intact”) to refer to a normal penis when most of the world does not circumcise their males. That would be like calling females uncut because some girls get circumcised, or calling people with arms “unamputated” because a some people happen to be amputees. I feel it promotes...

A year after men received circumcisions, the total bacterial load in the area that used to be under the foreskin dropped significantly, researchers report today (April 16) in the journal mBio. Anaerobic bacteria, which thrive in limited oxygen, declined most dramatically. Some aerobic bacteria, which need oxygen to live, increased. “It’s dramatic,” study researcher Lance Price,...

Uncutting and Legalize Foreskin have some great articles on the subject, they’re really much better qualified than us in that particular regard. There are two main avenues to bring up when dealing with the subject. The first is a rights-based argument, centered around the fact that it’s elective surgery performed on someone without their consent. As a rule, we don’t allow that, so why the...

Your mom thinks your pubic hair is unclean. Her...
