I was born premature and the smallest baby born in Wisconsin to live at that time. So it came to be that I was circumcised at three. I don't care what anyone says, It IS child abuse. I am now 81, but will NEVER forget the pain. After reading this book, i finally feel vindicated. Every parent should read in and take it to heart. My first wife circumcising my son to show me who was boss led to our divorce. If I had had this book at that time ...

Some more recent books are more comprehensive, but this remains an excellent introduction to the importance of keeping baby boys whole. Why the double standard of protecting girls but not boys from this heinous act is also discussed. Well written with good insights and much compassion. Highly recommended. I didn't give it 5 stars only because I've read some other books on circumcision that were more in depth.

Billy Ray Boyd has recently finished rewriting and updating his
popular book, originally titled "Circumcision: What It Does" and
now retitled "Circumcision Exposed." Crossing Press has given the
work an attractive presentation (the high quality drawings deserve
a special acknowledgement) and has apparently committed to working
to find the book a broader audience.

I wish the best to Boyd, a personal friend of mine, and to his
book. He has drawn together a broad range of inspiration and
information, ranging from personal spiritual contexts and New Age
insights to little known historical facts such as information on
Nineteenth Century Jewish opponents of circumcision. The
collection of information on legal awards in circumcision cases is
useful. And the list of parallels between circumcision and female
genital mutilation on page 43, which a footnote tells us is adapted
from a flyer created by the NOHARMM organization, is extremely well
conceived and presented. Boyd moves smoothly from subject to
subject, often sketching only the outlines of an issue so as to
allow readers to fill in the colors for themselves.

At the same time, the book's very strengths also contribute to some
of its most frustrating aspects. While I admire Boyd's creative
and eclectic mind, I also longed sometimes for a firmer organizing
principle for the work. I was also troubled by the tone of the
advice to the reader regarding taking personal responsibility as
well as the discussions of "intertribal criticism," e.g. non-Jews
discussing Jewish ritual circumcision. Both sections, while
intended to assist the reader in dealing sensitively with other
cultures and with his or her own beliefs and practices, ironically
struck me as themselves a bit patronizing. As I read them I asked
myself who the intended audience might be. They appear to address
someone open enough to be interested in many of the author's
concerns, and yet unaware enough of many of the central
considerations in such pursuits to need his advice. How many such
people are there, and how many of those are likely to be reading
this book?

At the cost of relatively little additional effort, Boyd could have
created a book which would be more useful to readers with a more
serious interest in the subject. For example, all cases listed in
the summary of legal decisions are drawn from one issue of the
NOCIRC Newsletter. Unless absolutely necessary, email and personal
correspondence ought not be used as a citation due to the
impossibility of verifying and locating the source; in several
cases where a footnote cited an email message or an unpublished
letter, documentable sources were apparently available.

And yet in the end, Boyd's book proves to be an enjoyable,
personalized, flawed yet unique contribution to the literature
about circumcision. It is a quick, easy, engaging read, and may
win the anti-circumcision movement new interest and new troops.
While Ronald Goldman's masterpiece "Circumcision: The Hidden
Trauma" is likely to remain the definitive introductory overview of
the subject for years or even decades, readers desiring a more
idiosyncratic view of the topic would do well to delve into Billy
Ray Boyd's short, entertaining work. '

If youre a parent, or are ever going to become one, you owe it to your child to know this stuff! Don't make an uninformed decision. Yes, this book is anti circumcision. There is plenty of pro circumcision pressure elsewhere. This may even they playing field. Once it does, think for yourself. Ask yourself if you feel in your heart that cutting off a part of an innocent babys genitals without his permission is okay. Ask yourself if you want to pay someone to this this heinous thing to your own child. Lastly, remind yourself that this is HIS body. If he wants to cut off part of his [...], he has plenty of time. And if he ever decides he wants a smaller [...] with less sensitivity, then it will be his decision to make. And you will feel good for allowing him to have rights over his own body. As far as the book, it is VERY informative and a good read as well. Remeber, just because our society practices this on a regular basis ( NO other society does) does not make it right. We also practiced slavery. Wrong is wrong. Stand up for the rights of our children!
The dedication in this book reads, "I lovingly dedicate this book to the courageous wounded warriors who, with little support and in the face of trivialization, misinformation, and widespread denial, carry on the fight to end the sexual mutilation of children." There is a foreword written by Dr. Paul M. Fleiss, assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at the University of Southern California Medical Center, and one of the most highly respected names in pediatrics medicine. A friend of mine has asked me to ask all you who read these words to buy copies and present them to your local university, community college, high school, and public libraries. Don't hesitate, do it now. Just a click!
