Question: Circumcision is:

Options:

Ridiculous, we were born with foreskin for a reason. We don't circumcise women!

Awesome, because a penis is difficult to clean, and monkeys can do it better than I can.

What do you think about this? Do you feel like the "personal choice" YOU made for ANOTHER PERSON was very, um, personal? If it's what you believe in, what about what your son may believe in? Do you believe your child is a possession that you can change and use to accommodate what YOU believe in, instead of what he may want in the future? 

And lastly, if you circumcised, do you understand what your son experienced at only a few days old with no pain relief, and do you regret it? Why didn't you circumcise your daughters, if you had one? Women have foreskin, too. 

I am pregnant with our third, a boy, and I've heard so much back and forth, and I'm wondering what other moms have done and why. I've gotten the "you're butchering your child" all the way to "if you leave him intact, he'll get infected and die".

We didn't circumcise. Not my penis, not my choice.

 Our ds is circumcised, because I was sure he would be glad we did when he got older.  I don't think he remembers it, and better then than now.  No, I don't regret it.  I would do it again if I had another son. 

The doctor never asked us, when we had our dd, if we wanted her circumcised.  ???

My son is circumcised, he had adequate pain relief, didn't even cry. It was out decision to make at the time. If he decides he hates me for it, we'll cross that bridge when we get there. I don't have strong feelings about it but my hubby was adamant that it be done. I made sure to find a doc I trusted and pain relie was provided

I think your title would be more accurate if it read "If you circumcised your son, come in here so I can bash you!"

Why did you and why are you happy? Were you concerned about the pain your son went through with no anesthetic at only a few days old?
