Educating Passengers on the Plane about Forced Infant Circumcision


On March 30th, 2014, I landed from protesting a week in D.C. Back at home (well, almost), waiting for my ride from the airport. When leaving D.C., just my luck, we had to wait for over an hour for the de-icing of the plane, and upon arrival, had to wait for a space on the runway, as only one side had been ploughed or something. That resulted in a two-hour delay.

Right before landing I struck up a conversation with the beautiful African-American girl sitting next to me, who has yet to become a mom but is into all-natural and is starting up her own natural cosmetics company. She was shocked to hear about Oprah’s hypocrisy, and that circumcision was a mark of slavery. She is a DC native, but now lives in Montreal. I gave her info, and told her about our Montreal pages and groups, and that we need her here!

I also prepared a few cards for the fellow sitting right in front of her, because I could see that he was actively listening…er, eavesdropping. He was a very handsome man, with beautiful blue eyes, and when his met mine, I gave him the little stack of cards with a smile. I could see he was a little bit taken aback, sort of like a child caught with his hands in the cookie jar. Boy, was he ever handsome!

He then turned around and enlightened me that this was the first time ever anybody gave him a “one of those” (referring to a “penis card”) on a plane, smiling. I quipped back that there was a first time for everything.

With a sad face, he told me that it was too late for him, but I told him quickly about restoration, and to be sure to tell every pregnant woman about how his choice was taken from him. I quickly showed him how we get at the 5 x 3 inch index card, and he was really overwhelmed. He did not have any sons, but promised he would read all the info attentively…and thanked me for approaching him, because he was obviously too shy but in want of information.

With that, I parted ways with them, two new “evangelists” for foreskin pride. I KNOW that neither one of them will ever be cutting any sons.
