Circumcision Scar - My 35 Year Foreskin Restoration, Neonatal Circumcision Memories, and How Christian American Doctors Hijacked "Holy Circumcision" to Dupe a Nation
One man's lifelong struggle with recurring nightmares leads him to discover repressed memories of his neonatal circumcision. He details a compelling narrative about foreskin restoration, medical abuse and how Christian American doctors usurped religious freedoms to surgically force a nation into denial about the male anatomy.
After suffering an unrelated trauma at the age of 1, the author experienced parallel memories that caused him to discern he'd been in two separate hospital settings as an infant, and his inability to reconcile these conflicting memories became the impetus behind his lifelong struggle.
As an adult, the author sought treatment for erectile dysfunction only to be chased out of multiple doctor's offices for suggesting circumcision is harmful. Accosted by this extreme emotional bias, he was abandoned by a medical community that branded him immoral and perverse for believing circumcision had hampered his ability to perform from his first sexual experience onward. Equating his abusers to surgical rapists, the author offers an unflinching glimpse into the debilitating mindset of circumcision related sexual trauma - the same debilitating mindset experienced by all victims of sexual violence.
Circumcision Scar is an emotionally powerful story - after reading this book, never again can it be said that circumcision is harmless.
Consider reading this book if you're man enough to learn the truth about what's been done to you. Take a stand if you value protecting children over an arcane religious ritual. Educate yourself before needlessly circumcising your son.
