If you're not doing anything in Houston between 10am-3pm Wednesday or Thursday, and you really dislike circumcision, you might want to check out protests organized by a group called Bloodstained Men & Their Friends.
The group kicked off its statewide dick-deliverance-demonstrations in Dallas March 10 and will make stops in San Antonio, Austin, and Fort Worth. According to a press release, "Bloodstained Men & Their Friends are known for their signature white outfits with bloodstained crotches to symbolize the lifelong wound that circumcision inflicts." So if you want to go to the protest, these dudes should be easy to find.
"Most parents have no idea what they put their babies through," the group's "co-director," Brother K, states in the release. "People are shocked to learn what Americans do to their babies."
The group describes itself as "a non-profit organization dedicated to giving victims of genital cutting a voice, and educating Americans about the harms of infant circumcision and the importance of the foreskin."
Back in 2007 we wrote about a community of circumcised dudes who go through great lengths (HEY-OH!) to "restore" their foreskin. You may also want to check out the "Intactivist Network" forum at Foreskin-Restoration.net to learn more. Or, more likely, you may not want to check it out.
The protests will take place at Cambridge and Fannin. Just look for the dudes in white jumpsuits and faux-bloodstained crotches.
