I was in the waiting room at the OB and read a STRANGE article. It was someone compairing circumsized penis' with breast removal. At first, I was like WTF. But after reading it, it was pretty funny.
Here is what it was saying.
( BTW I'm doing no justice to this article that was well written and by someone who has a clue about what they are talking about)
If you have a newborn male, most people get it circumsized to look like daddy's, easier cleaning, and health issuse later on. Did you know that studies show that men with un-circumsized penis' get prostate cancer at a higher rate.
Then, here is where it got odd......
If you base your decision to circumsize your baby due to health issuse does that mean if you had a little girl you would remove her breast at birth to avoid breast cancer?

Well I have 3 boys all circ'd but it got harder to make that choice with each birth. I think the point was that it is an unnecessary evil these days. My first son was born in 1986 and they circ'd him good! My last two born in 05 and 06...the one born in 06 hardly had anything removed..and you can tell. It tends to want to adhere to itself and is a bit more work to keep clean...but other than that he has no problems so far...but then again he is only 2. I think if I were certain that he would not get made fun of in the locker room I would choose not to have it done. Seems cruel and unusual to me.
