Our thanks to Tim for pointing us to a video (21:40) which we’ve just posted on our YouTube channel, along with the following commentary:
Men and women who display little or no concern over the harm caused to males by MGM often justify their position by saying they know men who are not unhappy with having been circumcised. Women often say this about their male partners. Many circumcised men themselves say they’re not unhappy with having been circumcised, often saying it hasn’t affected them. Some look on it in a positive light. This begs an obvious question. For those circumcised as babies or infants, how can they possibly know what they’ve lost?
The answer to that question lies in this video. Nickolas K Intactivist is an American anti-MGM campaigner, who was circumcised at 18 years of age. In this video he reflects on his own experience of the impact of the procedure, and makes some excellent general points about MGM. The video was recorded in Washington DC during the 2015 Genital Integrity Awareness Week.
A tip of the hat to the interviewer and videomaker, Patrick Smyth of Men Do Complain.
