Please help us to promote wider participation by men who know they've been harmed by childhood circumcision by using the news release below to publicize the survey through blogs, websites, newsletters, organizational newspapers and magazines, support groups and media outlets serving the following groups:
anti-FGM campaigners and organizations
children's rights organizations
genital integrity associations
human rights organizations
men's organizations and support groups
mental health professionals
non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
sex therapists and researchers
sexual minority groups (LGBTI)
sexual abuse survivor networks
Although the problem of childhood genital cutting is quite severe in the United States, we especially welcome participation by men who can document their harm who come from regions and communities where genital cutting is endemic, such as:
Africa - Aboriginal Australia - Indonesia - Jewish - Malaysia - Muslim - Philippines - South Korea
Canadians Launch Online Circumcision Harm Survey
June 7, 2011
An international online Survey of Circumcision Harm was launched in 2011 through a grassroots collaboration of Canadian and U.S. volunteers. CircumcisionHarm.info allows men around the world with access to a computer to document the adverse effects of childhood genital cutting on their health and well-being and to upload photos of their harm. Statistical results from the survey are publicly viewable at the affiliated site CircumcisionHarm.org, with specialized filtered reports available to anyone for a nominal fee.
According to the Canadian website, the project was launched "because the medical community has never investigated the long-term adverse physical, sexual, emotional or psychological consequences of infant/childhood circumcision on the health of adult men... due, in part, to many men with such harm not being comfortable in speaking speak with professionals about these issues, or not being given a safe venue in which to document these adverse consequences."
The Survey Programmer expressed hope that documenting such consequences and making the results publicly accessible "will provide a starting point for dialogue about the long-term adverse consequences of male genital cutting that should be investigated by medical communities and taken seriously by the wider societies where customs of male childhood genital cutting occur."
The survey takes about 20 minutes to complete.
