"However, I often hesitate to advocate against infant circumcision because I am often embarrassed by the tactics and behavior of intactivists."

Please reconsider this position. In a open forum there is nothing you can do about the behaviour of others (where it falls short of reportable abuse), only counterbalance it by your own good behaviour. By hanging back, you give those who embarass us (and their opponents) free reign.

It is a pity that so much of the above discussion does nothing to counter those who come from a mindset in which cutting part of a baby's genitals off is considered normal. Breaking the grip of that mindset should be our first priority (whether the babies are male or female or intersexed).
