Re: What were your medical reasons for circumcising?

Why do they hush, is it because they know it might make him uncomfortable. I don't discuss my daughters bra size with people, that again would be her choice and her developing breasts are a totally normal thing. If I want to share how my breast development was going 30 years ago that is my choice but I would have been mortified to have my mom discussing it with strangers.

To me it's not my choice to share any info about private areas of my son/daughters life without their permission, even at the doc I ask them if it's okay to talk to the doc about it.
I agree with this! And I do the same thing at the doctor too! I mean they wait and look at me when the doctor asks to examine and I let them know it's a safe situation and up to them.
