About Ignite

If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?

Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.

What is an Intactivist?

Steve Crozier



Steve became an Intactivist 15 years ago after searching the internet for information on circumcision. He has been interviewed on television and radio and has attended conferences and shows to educate people about a procedure often done without much thought but that no medical organization in the world recommends. A resident of Bend for four years Steve is a computer professional and avid outdoor enthusiast. Originally from Canada Steve lived throughout the South for 12 years before locating to Bend for all it has to offer.

An Intactivist views the rights of the child to an intact body as a fundamental human right. With circumcision making national news recently with the attempts to ban it in San Francisco many people are wondering what the fuss is about over such a common procedure. My presentation will help educate and encourage people to educate themselves on circumcision with an interesting look at what can be a controversial topic through the eyes of an Intactivist.
