The title is misleading and your definition of intactivism is wrong. For me, intactivism means "opposing genital (and bodily) mutilation of ALL children (and adults too for the more hardcore among us) and actively working to stop it".

Your reasons for opposing mutilation can vary widely and may not necessarily have to be rooted in a human rights framework, although i suspect that is what most intactivists believe in.

Social justice can be intactivism, so can men's rights, so can sex abuse awareness, different political ideologies, spreading of the sikh religion too since they forbid mutilation, & more.
