Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son
I think we as parents focus on the looking different thing too much. Its like why do my boobs look different then my sisters...you know. They arent going to be exactly the same. That is just the way God made it. When they are old enough to understand you can tell them what circumcision is and explain, but in the meantime it looks different because God (or genetics if you are so inclined) made everyone different. If we all looked the same it would be a pretty boring world to look at!
My boys are both intact. I actually left the decision up to DH and his main reason was he had seen some done and didnt want to do that to our kids. Its simply unnecessary.
I havent read this whole thread so forgive if its come up already. I have a friend who is a nurse and she claims that many elderly men get infections because they loose the dexterity in their hands to properly pull back foreskin and clean. It just made me think...anyone else heard of this/seen it...
