  • I don't circ or pierce ears. It's their body, not mine. If they want to alter their body when they are older with circs, piercing, tattoos, whatever, they can, but I'm not going to make unnecessary changes to their body without their consent. (Necessary procedures like surgeries are a different story.)

  • I left my sons "in tact" so they can make that choice and my DD gets to choose when and if she wants her ears pierced.

  • the only reason my son isn't circumcised is because it wasn't covered by medicaid and I couldn't afford to pay for it myself.

    I'm just leaving both up to my kids (I have a boy and a girl LOL) if when they're bigger, if he wants to be circumcised, OK. If she wants her ears pierced when she's older, OK. Their body, their choice!

  • No. My son is not circ. my dd's ears are pierced. To me its not at all the same.

  • I am against both personally. I don't think ill of others who choose to do either. But it isn't what we believe in.

  • my son is intact and cleaner and less infections then his cousin who is circed and after researching the infection rates etc in Europe where they do not routinely circ I decided it is all bunch of bull and for both my girl and boy I am not altering their bodies in any way. It is their body and their choice!
