He is a very stubborn man and will not open his mind or do any research. What do I do?
In our house I am definitely the researcher but if dh wants to "challenge" me on something he beast to research and be able to backup his opinion. As had the Circ talk at the beginning of each pregnancy although it ended up being a moot argument since we had 3 girls. But all 3 times ge was pro circa and all 3 times I told him I was happy to consider his stance as long as he could support it. But I refused to bend on my opinions just because he wanted a boy to "look like him". I needed good firm reasons..

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

I still don't understand why parents buy into this stuff. cutting off my baby's nose might reduce the likelihood of him smoking and developing lung cancer, but I'm not going to mutilate my healthy baby for a fractional reduction in something caused by risky adult behavior.

Frankly this is another reason I'm happy to be an atheist. The truth is serious advocates want to circumcise because they think God wants them to do it, not because they think it's an objectively good idea. if I thought God wanted me to cut off my newborn's pinky toes not a doctor in the world would go along. The only difference between that and circumcision is commonality. the fact that something is common isn't enough to make it right.
