  • I am not against it at all. If I had a son..he would be circumsized.

  • I don't subscribe to the religion and circumcision school of thought. I can't see a religious purpose to it - hack off a part of your infant son's body if you believe in God. It just doesn't make any sense. But, thankfully we didn't have boys so I didn't have to worry about it.

  • My religion has no interest in lopping off a piece of an infant's genitals for cosmetic reasons.

  • I don't have boys but I don't believe I would circumsize -- genital mutilation is still genital mutilation I wouldn't circumsize my daughters so... religion wise Christians typically do circumsize.

  • it has nothing to do with "cosmetic" reasons..we believe that this piece collects a lot of germs,+ it is already proven sceintifically that circumsized men are less likely to catch AIDS than non circumsized,so its even getting popular in medical feild (regardless religions) because its benifits where proven sceintifically..its common to do with infants because in an infant its easier and less painful,actually no pain at all,simply because they have very soft skin..exactly like when you peirce tour DH ears while shes a baby,its very easy!

  • My son was circumsized, this was almost 18 years ago. Back then it was believed to be more sanitary, it was for health reasons. Now it's pretty much known that it really doesn't make a difference. So if I were to have a son today, I wouldn't do it
