This is a very emotional topic. Many people who were circumcised and whose culture was for circumcision were like “everyone is circumcised”, “circumcision is normal”, “The ladies love it” or even outright bad talked foreskin. And the people who had foreskin and whose culture was for foreskin answered similarly. A lot of times on both sides they’d express disbelief that anyone would be teased for their foreskin or lack thereof. However, many people also expressed depression and anxiety about their circumcision or lack thereof and talked about how they hated their body because of it.

I think we need to be more aware on both sides not to dis foreskin and not to dis penises that have circumcision scars or that are bent. Stop telling people they are “disformed”. Teach to love your body no matter what. There are ways to treat either foreskin problems or circumcision problems. I think I’ll probably do another post entirely on this. Know that you’re not alone. If you hate your circumcision I direct you to http://uncutting.tumblr.com/ to learn more about foreskin restoration and also how to take care of your injuries.
