Why do you care what I do with my son's penis??? *edit*

Posted by   + Show Post

If you choose not to circumsize your sons- ok, fine. To each their own.

But please don't come on here bashing Mom's WHO DO!

We have our reasons too!!!! You may not 'agree' with them, but that's not your job. You're job is to be the best Mom to YOUR kids as you can, not judge MY every action as a parent to MY kids.

I really wish we could stop bashing eachother and be supportive of one another... I thought that's what CafeMom was about, silly me. 

So if you want to make a post calling us ignorant, don't be surprised when we defend ourselves. 

THIS IS NOT A DEBATE. I WILL NOT ARGUE WITH YOU ABOUT THE DECISIONS I HAVE MADE AS A PARENT. I AM ASKING YOU TO PLEASE PLEASE STOP JUDGING ME. BECAUSE I DON'T JUDGE YOU! 

I have never once said, 'Oh wow you didn't circumcise your son? That's ignorant.' Before you jump all over me for posting something you're passionate about read the damn thing and try to grasp what I'm saying!!! WHY DO YOU CARE IF MY KID IS CIRCUMCISED OR NOT?

our insurance didn't cover it that's why it wasn't done at birth- it is very expensive!!! finally he 'needed' it due to constant infections and stuff, but waiting til he was 2 was hell on the poor kid =( 

Quoting SarahsAMommy:

I don't see anything wrong with doing it either way. The only time I really put my input in is when it's asked. All I know is insurances are starting to drop it cause it's not needed. And if I didn't have to do something then I don't see why doing it. My son had to have it done for medical reasons, and couldn't get it done till a year old. Like you say, to each their own.

Quoting tarakay0417:

I agree. I circumsized my DS. I am tired of being bashed because of it.

I wasn't going to get my son done. But he had to for medical reasons. But they had to wait till he was 1 to do it. So I understand your pain on this one. It's different for everyone. My sisters little boy isn't done and hasn't had any troubles. I can see why you did it though.

Quoting Mrs_Szontagh:

My son went to a Dr when he was about a yr old who was trying really hard to keep us from doing it... he even said, "His sex life will be so much more fulfilled." My jaw dropped. "As his mother that is the last thing I'm worried about." I don't even want to think about that aspect!!! I was thinking ok he's getting nonstop infections and I don't want him teased in school, hated to do it so late I felt like the worst POS in the world =( He has made a FULL recovery of course and barely even remembers it, but it was tough. If this baby is a boy we will be getting it done ASAPPPPPPPP

I don't think I care about my kids' penises as much as these women do(some of them).

Yep. Human rights violations aren't anything to judge about.

and some will argue that by snipping my sons foreskin i violated his human rights... 

that's part of certain cultures- we may not understand or agree but what shall we do? bash this woman until she says we are right? our way or the highway? come on.

that's so weird about not doing it until they're a yr old- i think i heard that after we moved states too though
