Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Great post! No circumsized penises in this house. DH isn't and we both feel strongly that this is simply NOT a parent's right. In our opinion, DS was born perfect, why change him?!

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.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

All my boys are and will be intact and im sooooooooo happy about that. SO is NOT and I feel bad for him though I dont tell him that. I have been with both and I tell you as a woman an intact man is more pleasurable. As org poster stated theres more of a gliding motion then chafing and friction - it elminates the need of artificial lubricants all together.

Its the same as with cloth diapering though - I just wasnt informed initially about cloth diaper and all the options I had and now when i see a baby in disposables i feel sick to my stomach and i cant stand the smell and the thought of all those chemicals on their little bottoms.

i have converted my SO in both categories 100% and couldnt be happier about it! - specially since we will be having our 3rd boy in a few weeks

Yup. She constantly makes VERY inappropriate comments. She's made comments on the size of a friend's lactating breasts, another's clothing choices, even one's hobby. Of course, SHE'S absolutely normal and perfect. :eyeroll:

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

thank you for posting this! and omg #8 thats just raunchy!!

another point as well in regards to # 9 is that people will argue that it signifies a christian, to which infant baptism and baby dedications are now used (depending no your denomination).

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

I have 3 boys and i chose to circumcise them all. i have never criticized a parent on whether they did or didn't i believe it's a personal choice that both parents make. My husband and i both felt that we should have it done so we did, believe me i felt bad for the baby but it was done in about 5 min the baby was brought back in right after and looked like nothing had happened. he wasn't crying or upset at all (all three the same way). after a couple of days the circ looked fine and you couldn't even tell. i believe to each his own

I just said no way, no how, and that I would divorce him and not put his name on the birth cert. I was serious. I said he had to convince me why circ'ing was better. He only came up with that his dad and brothers are. I said, "And you guys always sit around naked, comparing penises." Then we swore and screamed. Later I offered him a short article to read on it, and he eventually read it and agreed and was very happy I made him change his mind.
