How do you handle that type of situation?
When my bro and sis in law were expecting a boy I had a feeling they were just going to circ. He is a dr. and she is a nurse. But, I felt like I had to let them know that they don't have to circ so casually one day when we were talking about the baby I said "well now that you are having a boy you get to figure out if you are going to circ or not." She let it go and that was all I said. I could tell she wasn't into hearing more about it.

When I was pregnant with DS my bro in law and sis in law (dh's bro) had a 5 year old intact son. She never asked or mentioned the choice between circ/non circ at all. I wish she had. Thankfully I found out there was a choice from being on here. I guess she has the attitude that a lot of people I noticed on this thread about "not my business". There are people who do appreciate learning and hearing about different ways.
