Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Many of the "reasons" listed in the first post are inaccurate or opinions.

Have any of you ever seen a man who had to have a circumcision for medical reasons!? It looks like a swollen, painful, bloody broken hockey stick!
The healing time was longer than 6 weeks!
He still hates the difference in skin coloration!
THAT is more barbaric than strapping a baby down for a few seconds and having the procedure done. YES it is incredibly disturbing, but infants heal way faster than a full grown man does, and this is why you PAY for a local anesthetic and swaddle your child's legs to ease the pain. Tylenol can help too. I would rather have that then know that he will more than likely have to have the procedure done as an adult. (The problem runs in the family.)
To each their own!
Maybe for your situation, that's how it was. But my dad was a victim of a botched circ and had to have it fixed as a young adult. And guess what? NOT TRAUMATIZING! You know why? Because an adult UNDERSTANDS. Tell a baby that's crying from fear and pain that it'll go away and see how far that gets you.
