Re: Do you ever feel judged regarding not circumcising?

What happens in JH and HS when they have to shower after gym?
I really feel like I made the right decision for my boys...I just hope they feel that way too!
I don't have boys but I just wanted to pipe in with something I heard on the radio the other day that gave me a chuckle: #1 unwritten guy rule- Never, ever comment on another guy's package. Ever.

It's just plain rude. People who say they use the term mutilate simply because it fits the strict definition and for no other reason... Well, that's a bold faced lie. They use the term to purposefully make it sound awful. If someone wants to do that, it's their prerogative. I just think they should own it instead of hiding behind, "well, it fits the definition." I think that is kind of what terra is getting at.

And I for one do not think she is rude. Outspoken, yes. Rude, no.
I'm not going to lie, if someone told me that they removed healthy breast tissue from their newborn, there's a really good chance that the M-bomb would go through my head.
Please excuse my spelling- I am typing with one hand and trying to hold on to my sanity with the other.
