Re: Serious Q about circumsizion..
I just had to at this. Not to offend... but you knew it was a painful procedure that was UNnecessary... and yet you did it anyway? I do not understand this mentality at all. Why on earth would anyone cut off a perfectly functioning part of their unconsenting childs body just because?

You just have to do what is right for you and yours, and don't look back.
Your apendix does far less for you, you run the risk of needing it removed because of infection later in life and yet you'd be laughed at if anyone wanted to remove it from a healthy baby just because... and yet the foreskin, which has lots of "jobs" to do is routinely removed as a preventative meausre. *shakes head* Any part of your body can get infected without proper care. We don't chop other parts off willy nilly, I do not get why foreskin is different.
