March Roll Call!

It's almost spring!  I thought it might be nice to do a roll call to see who's here.  Name, locale, and anything else you feel comfortable sharing.  Are you ready for spring?

Well, I'm here as always! But very few others, sad to say.

I'm an Englishman and I live in England. I'm circumcised and regret it as each day, week, month and year goes by since March 2002. It's why I joined iVillage in the first place after Googling some help to come to terms with my own condition, newly bereft of a foreskin. All I initially found was websites with men and a few women positively championing circumcision, discussing their penises in vivid detail with photos to match - encouraging me to post some of my own, telling me to either put up with my circumcision and join them or "get lost."

I found iVillage, but didn't seek 'help' after the response I was given. Perhaps that was a mistake?  I will never know.

Instead I chose to support genital integrity, male and female, when I became aware of the USA's predilection for infant male circumcision and its consequent millions of adult males routinely circumcised as babies in generations past. It was a revelation to me. The last time English boys were circumcised without medical reason was about 65 years ago, a lifetime for some.

I have one son and four grandsons (including two daughters and a granddaughter). All are genitally and healthily 'intact'.
