SO - mutilation - did you educate youself?

I think rather than pointing fingers and making accusations we should be educating each other in a civil way.  


So I ask, did you circ or not circ your boy, and why?


If you feel it isnt my business and do not wish to share your knowledge move on, dont post anything at all.  


I have 2 boys intact.  Their daddy was and still is upset his mother took something from him for no reason that he cant get back.  She knew it wasnt medically needed amd they are an atheist family.  


My husband then educated me on circ.  


Added: if his mother had left him intact and he had wanted to be circed the procedure for an adult is really no big deal.


Added.  Upset, and angry do not mean hate, resentment, or disrespect.  My husband is a mamas boy.  He loves her very much but her decision upset him.  He felt this way as soon as he learned as a child getting the sex talk.


Added. This is a spin off post of the original post mutilation.  I thought we could share info from both sides in a civil way here.

I will when he gets here in January. It's a religious requirement and my husband had his done at age 5-6. No meds, remembers everything and is still happy his mom and dad got it done for him.

My husband is circ'd and is very happy that his is. He was adamant that our son be circ'd too. He's the one with the penis, and I didn't care either way, so I gave him the say-so.
