The late Jonathon Conte (14 June 1981 in Tampa – 9 May 2016 in San Francisco) was an intactivist and survivor of male genital mutilation, who among other things contributed his case history for the Circumpendium.
He engaged as Events Editor at IntactNews and as Events Coordinator with the Bay Area Intactivists. Before, he had worked in the San Francisco MGM Bill initiative to protect all children from forced genital cutting and work with and support other pieces of pending legislation on the local, state and national level. He was chosen "Intactivist of the Month" by Intact America.
He introduced the bloodstained suit to America at the 2012 American Academy of Pediatrics convention in New Orleans.
Bloodstained Men logo
Brother K created the Bloodstained Men logo in 2012 by tracing the outline of Jonathon Conte from a photo by James Loewen.
Award for intactivism
Northrup was chosen "Intactivist of the Month" by Intact America.
On May 9, 2016, he took his own life at the age of 34. A few days earlier he demonstrated, as often, on the streets for the right of children to intact genitals, but apparently didn't talk to anybody about his great pain.
His last Facebook entry (May 8, 2016) is:
|“||To all of the mothers who protected their children from genital mutilation in the face of pressure from their community, religious leaders, family, or spouse/partner, thank you for putting the safety, well-being, and human rights of your children first.|
