Earlier this year, Burning Bright produced 100 Vaginas, a programme that explored women’s experience with their bodies, and included a sequence on FGM.

Now Burning Bright are looking to present the male experience in a new programme. This is an opportunity for our voices to be heard.

If you think you might like to be involved in the project, see below for details.

Channel 4 are looking for contributors for a ground-breaking and intimate film about men, their bodies and life experiences.

We are working with an artist to document the relationship men have with their most private parts and masculinity.

If you are happy to be interviewed and intimately photographed as part of this programme, we’d love to hear from you.

Take part in a podcast

For too long people have been obliged to keep  silent about male genital cutting because of the attitude of society. This series of podcasts aims to break that silence.

We would like to hear from men, women, mothers, fathers and anyone concerned with the rights of children regarding non-therapeutic genital modification. Ideally you will be based in the U.K. so that we can record you directly in front of a microphone. To take part contact M.D.C. using our contact form or write to – info@mendocomplain.com

Circumcised man’s threat to kill mother – The Times

The story below appeared in The Times 9th June 2018.

A son threatened to slit his mother’s throat because she had him circumcised when he was five, a court was told. H******** had been left traumatised and wanted to know why his parents had agreed to the procedure.

H********, 30, bombarded his mother with more than 100 emails and voicemails between Christmas Day last year and January 5, Kwok Wan, for the prosecution, told Leicester magistrates. In one he said: “I will slit your throats where you stand. Happy new year.”

Mr Wan added that H******** went to his mother’s house on New Year’s Eve and threw paint over the front of the house and on the path.

Kim Lee, for the defence, said that only a handful of the messages had been threatening and were “a cry for help”. He added: “He suffers from body dysmorphia and has other mental health issues. There was no intent to cause harm to his parents.”

H********, of Loughborough, was found guilty of aggravated harassment, which he had denied. He admitted criminal damage. He was given an eight-week prison sentence suspended for a year and ordered to attend 20 rehabilitation days.

Thornhill Clinic protest

The last of the blinds were being drawn as we arrived and the normal opening hours were altered from the afternoon to the morning.

P1070103scale2

Our biggest protest yet, including candidates for the political parties Justice for Men and Boys (and the women who love them) and the Green Party.

The campaign to protect boys, and all children from the unnecessary medical interventions of powerful, vociferous adults is growing. Cutting the genitals of any child, boy, girl or intersex without an immediate medical imperative is being seen by more and more people as an abuse of children’s rights, minds and bodies, which indeed it is.
