Re: "20 Reasons I Did Not Circumcise My Son"

I couldn't get past the second reason.
I already feel incredibly badly for circ'ing my first son. I don't need some other mother on a blog calling me names because of it("chicken****"). Hopefully, it helps those who have yet to have a boy. For those of us that already faced that dilemma and regret the choice we made oh so long ago, it does nothing but puts one hand on the hip, wags the finger in the face and piles on the guilt.
Didn't need that. Thanks!

Like the info, didn't appreciate the guilt trip tho.

I'm sorry you felt that way She definitely has a strong voice, though I have a feeling any non-circ site would load on the guilt for someone who regrets their decision. However I wanted to say that she didn't use the term "chicken****" to describe all mamas who circ'd, she was referring to those who send their babies away to have it done without going along because they couldn't handle watching it.

Re: "20 Reasons I Did Not Circumcise My Son"

Yah, I know mama, that was me. I didn't go with my son when he was circ'ed.

I didn't make the decision TO circ my son, but I didn't make the decision NOT to either. Circ'ing is the norm here(especially 9 plus years ago). You just did it.
BTW- We left our youngest intact not thru research but just thru thinking about it and talking it thru. We decided this time, didn't just DO anything.
Yes, blogger has a strong stance and that's fine. Her article just wasn't for me. I didn't like the tone and after the "chicken****" comment(she doesn't know me!!) I stopped reading. Didn't need anymore assumming things and making me feel worse than I already do.
I'm not sorry I feel this way. But I learned from it. I shut my browser window
