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.

Both my boys are circed and I don't regret it. I educated myself and made the choice to have it done. My husband had his done when he was eight because he had a medical problem. I have read plenty of stories about men that had to get done because they started having issues. They all said it didn't negatively effect them in any way and they had wished their parents had done it when they were babies.

Your husband is mad at his mother over his foreskin?

LMAO

I'm thinking he has more issues with his mother than this.

DS is circed. Given family medical history and research we felt it was the best option for him. He is a teenager now.

My Dh is intact and so is our son. It's an unnecessary procedure in our minds , his family is catholic , plus ds was not in good health for the procedure until January of this year so it was a no brainer for us to leave him be.

My husband and I chose to keep our boys intact. My husband is not circumsized and I love that he isn't. I find penises that are cut are very unattractive to me.
