Survivor Mom: Teaching Consent

“Teach them from the very start that their body belongs to them, and that they alone get to make the decisions about it.”

THAT is why we need to end infant/child circumcision. Nothing like sexual assault at birth to teach children that 1- Your body does NOT belong to you 2- WE will make decisions about your body, not you 3-People who are larger and stronger have the right to hold you down and do what they want to your body and 4- Your body the way it was at birth was ugly and disgusting to us, so we carved you up to make you pretty to our eyes. People have the right to do that to those who are smaller or weaker.
(Thus preparing them to be victims as well as perpetrators)
