Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I think anyone who circumsizes their son is ignorant.

Okay, maybe not everyone. There's always that rare medical exception.

But to permanently alter your son's body with the reasons so many give of "so he'll look just like daddy" or "because everyone else does it, so I don't want him to get made fun of in the locker room"...that is insane. I didn't give the decision to circ or not a whole lot of thought because I knew there was no reason to alter the perfect body my son was born with. But if you ARE considering cutting of a part of your son's genitals, please at least put some time and thought into it!! Oh that's right, if you do your research you'll realize there's no reason to circ.

Uncircumcised penises are just as easy to keep clean and free of infections as circ'ed ones. Plenty of circ'ed guys get STDs and HIV. So a SLIGHTLY reduced risk of disease is still not a reason enough to permanently alter your child's body.

I normally am not one to judge other parents' decisions and am "to each his own" type of person. But there's my confession for ya. I judge the shit out of anyone who has their child circumsized and justifies it with completely BS reasons. Are you also going to mutilate your daughter's genitals just because it is the norm? Then why do it to your son?

EDIT: Well this post has proved how truly ignorant and unreasonable many of you are. I feel deeply sorry for some of your kids. It is not CREEPY, WEIRD, or SICK to be against circumcision and wish parents would stop disfiguring their perfect newborn's bodies. If someone had their doctor cut off their son's penis completely, saying it was cleaner or helped with a lower infection/STD rate, would you still think that was just a different parenting decision? No, because it's unnecessary mutilation...EXACTLY like circumcision. Female genital mutilation only became illegal as recently as the 1990's and why was this legislation passed? Because some people DO care when babies are mutilated for no reason. Some people DID step up to stop it instead of saying "their kid, their choice ". It's not YOUR body, so it's not YOUR right to cut it.

Well, I think that anyone who doesn't cirumcise their son is ignorant!

The uncircumcised penis looks funny as well....it's just weird looking!!! We feel circumcising our sons penis his better for them, it's cleaner, etc. 

So, you can kiss my ass if you don't like it.

Hahaha.. it took my months of careful research and statistic reviews for me to make my decision of whether or not to circumsize. I don't believe that makes me ignorant at all! I made what I felt was the best decision for my child.

Now my daughter, I got her ears pierced at 8 months old lol. My decision wasn't whether or not to do it, but when to do it. And again reaerch and my beliefs brought me to a decision lol

i really dont give a shit about something that isn't my business, sorry. no one is going to change my mind so you might as well just give up. i've seen it all before, countless times, and my opinion is the same: parent's choice, everyone else should butt out and worry about something more important, like starving kids and the children who are really abused.

Do you care about children who are raped or molested?

I didn't realize you had to walk around the playground asking children if they've been molested in order to give a shit about kids who were molested.

What a ridiculously stupid response! LOL

 Funny moms sit around and discuss their sons penises. I can guarantee my almost 15yo does not sit around and discuss his penis with his friends! 

"Hey man look at my penis" 
"Oh cool look at my penis"
"Right on"
lol

 Penises in general look weird lol. And as long as the person who is intact knows how to properly care for their penis, then it is not cleaner at all.
