Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

As we used to say on another forum, even if the foreskin was purred off by tiny furry kittens, it wouldn't make it right. There is no right way to do a wrong thing, and removing healthy tissue from an unconsenting person is wrong, no matter what the parents may prefer to believe or see.

He's been working on it the last few days but won't let me read it. I think he's being shy about it which is weird b/c he used to write for me all.the.time. we I was on the comp and went looking for the article and its so great. He basically gives me all the credit to keeping DS intact and how he didn't want to admit it at first but he's so glad I didn't back down. He's not done but he's moving on to how DS's penis made him feel like he was missing something and how he was introduced to foreskin restoration.

If he gets published you better believe i'll post a link!!
Thanks for reading I just HAD to share!

Blaming typos on my "smart"phone's auto-correct
This makes me hope that DH and I have a boy someday, so that when I teach him about why I won't allow our son to be cut, (DH doesn't really deal with hypothetical situations, which is why we haven't discussed it yet) then hopefully that will open up DH to the idea of restoration. I believe it would improve things for *both* of us.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Just watched the "An Elephant in the Hospital" video and WOW!

So glad my doula talked to me about it.
So glad I stood up to my husband who's only reasons for doing it were, its cleaner and he'll look like me.
So glad my little guy is intact!!!!!

After that video, I don't see how any parent could consent to it.

I am so glad I saw this video! We are TTC and if we have a boy DH always said we were ABSOLUTELY going to circumcise him...until I made him watch this video. He just said we won't do it, its not necessary and I quote, "D@mn, I want my foreskin back" lol lol
