Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

ETA - it's also interesting that you automatically assume we circ for cosmetic reasons. Nowhere on this thread (or any other thread) have I stated our reasons for circ'ing. But I love how you think it's your place to make assumptions on something you know nothing about.
Hopping in here I don't know your reasons or anyone's reasons for circ'ing. The most common one I hear from parents who do circ is that they chose to do so because they don't like how an intact boy looks. I know there are other reasons, but I also know that my sisters circ'd their boys for cosmetic reasons and I think, if you were to poll parents, many would say it was cosmetic reasons. There are other reasons people choose to circ (religious, health/medical) but I don't find them to be as common.
