INTACT PUMPKIN PATCH



Have a carved or decorated pumpkin this fall that you're using to spread the message of genital autonomy? We'd love to add your #i2 pumpkin to the patch! Send a picture to SavingSons@gmail.com or message the Saving Our Sons on Facebook. All submissions will receive a set of Holiday Info stickers (or pick your favorites here) for seed-planting throughout the coming seasons. Email your mailing address when submitting your pumpkin photo if you'd like to receive these items.

Stash bowl for trick-or-treaters - complete with #i2 stickers that will be loved and WANTED, those that will open doors to information. Included in this Halloween stash are Pokemon, Wonder Woman, and Carve Pumpkins stickers. Found on Etsy here.

During Halloween 2015, Jonathon Conte, of the Bay Area Intactivists, submitted a photo of the goodie bags he put together to hand out. He wrote, "Not a pumpkin, but it's Halloween advocacy," and added, "Although I don't think anything contained in our Halloween treat bags is inappropriate for children, I just wanted to make it clear that children are not the primary audience for these. The vast majority of people participating in [our local event] are adults." If you are handing out goodies this Halloween, and have an adult audience coming by your house, party, or other event, consider including cards or stickers with your stash. You'll plant seeds of information with a whole new audience.

Circumcision is a trick... Instead, have a treat! Carve pumpkins, not babies.

Boys and girls of every age, wouldn't you like to see something strange?
Research circumcision - it's scarier than Halloween!

Please Help With Domain Transfers


We have the amazing opportunity to purchase a number* of popular domains that previously led to pro-cutting information, and ensure that in the future they lead to pro-intact information. In order to make this happen, we need to raise $70 per domain to keep these sites intact and not have them bought out for further infant cutting propaganda.

If you are able to help with this endeavor in any way, big or small, please give via PayPal Friends/Family to TheIntactNetwork@gmail.com or at the button below. Even a $2 donation is useful and will pool with others for the acquisition of a domain. We'll share the domains with donors as they are able to be acquired and re-directed to pro-intact info. If you'd like to select one from the top of the list (most urgent) email SavingSons@gmail.com or message the SOS or TIN Facebook pages.

THANK YOU!


*Domains will be purchased for redirection to pro-intact sites in an order of priority. We will not be attempting to purchase sites that are being sold for over $70 per 36 months, because this is outside the range of our fundraising limitations. We will be focused on the current top 25 that otherwise point to pro-cutting materials online. We will add to this list as others come available, or as we are able to raise funding to do so. There are currently a total 45 'in queue' (potential domains that match this description). We will need to repeat fundraising efforts to maintain these domains and their intact re-directs every 3 years.

The Truth Seeker: Circumcision


circumcision

we have broken a child's spirit

he looked at me

before we began

and knew me for who i am

hey he said to me

in his gentle smile of recognition

hey you are the same as me

you must be who i am

and then i held down his legs

as we cut off his foreskin

infinitely sore tender life of orgasm

we rejected his life

force

power

he could not fight us off

despite the fact

that he fought with all his might

he gave up the fight

his legs lay beneath the ten ton fire

of my hands

and stayed there

with all his might drained

even after i had let him up

i cannot believe

that it does not harm so tender a life

to have his spirit broken

at this tender time of his life

at my hands

who has ushered in his life

-Karen Hope Erlich
birth song
