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. or leave a comment by this post. N.B. comments are public.

As an adult male, if I could change one thing about myself it would be the fact that as an infant I was circumcised against my consent. It has caused an incredible amount of psychological and physical damage to myself.
To get some idea of how many men feel harmed by circumcision have a look at this YouGov poll.
Using letters and emails received over the last 20 years David Smith presents testimony from men sent to the charity NORM-UK now known as 15 Square. His presentation concentrates on the psychological aspects of the harm caused by the non-therapeutic circumcision of male children.
