Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Kinda OT (a wee bit)...we were at a summer birthday party last year at a friend's home where swimming was on the list of activities. After swimming, we all got our children into the house to change out of their swimsuits. There were 4 little boys all changing in the same room (mine, the hostess', and two other friends') and one of the mamas told the b'day boy, "W, your peepee looks funny!" in a 'teasing' way. (W is intact) We all looked at her and told her that if she wanted to get right down to it, it was her son who had the 'funny-looking' peepee of the group--his was the only circed one there! She was shocked that her son was the only circed boy at the party--needless to say, she made no more 'peepee' comments.
my goodness, that is just so out of line!

i told him to watch a video of a child being circ'd and if he could sit through it, AND have it done to his new born child...then he was on his own for the can find vids online. they are quite disturbing. i got about...five seconds into one and immediately started crying. poor baby. my hubs is circ'd but his dad is not...and he told me that he wanted his son to be circ'd as look like dad. i asked him, "oh yeah? and how often do you and your dad stand around staring at each other's bizness?"
