Rainbow Radio and Circumcision

So, I’m posting a little later at night than is usual for me….  but I literally just walked in the door, took my shoes off, and headed for the bedroom and my Macbook.

Tonight I was a guest on Rainbow Radio, a show hosted by my sister, Riki, and my sista from another mista, Shavonne.  I was there to talk about Camp fYrefly, all the good we are doing, and how people can get involved.  But I ended up sticking around and just taking part in the rest of their “regular scheduled programming” – which is basically whatever they feel like discussing at the time.

What we ended up talking about was actually circumcision.  A topic that, as a mommy activist, I’m very familiar with.  So it couldn’t have been more tailor made for me.  I was able to give them information that they otherwise wouldn’t have had.  Facts about infant foreskin, and how it is actually fused to the head of the penis.  How doctors actually rip it away in order to make their damaging cuts.  How this skin is there for a reason, and protects the penis from damage.  And how removing it exposes the penis tip to serious and irreversible nerve damage.  Our babies are born perfect – we scream for our girls who are forced to undergo female genital mutilation, and we should scream equally loud for our baby boys.  It’s not okay.

I gave a plug for the facebook page of Saving our Sons.  And I do highly recommend you check it out.  There is loads of information there, highly worth a look.  https://www.facebook.com/SavingOurSons

While I’m plugging facebook pages, make sure to check out Rainbow Radio (on CFCR Saskatoon Community Radio) – https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=7744048523 – and Camp fYrefly – https://www.facebook.com/campfyrefly.

Have a great night folks!  🙂
