How do you feel about circumcision?

I was just watching a Atlanta house wives commercial and Kim S stated "She did want her son wearing a turtleneck". Now normally I think she is completely odd but it got me thinking. What would  have done. Im lucky I dont have a boy. I think we would have gotten his foreskin removed just for looks. But hay that just us. 

How about you?

Also, do you think parents should be allowed to remove pieces of their child's body?

 It's genital mutilation.

 Foreskin is there for many, many reasons. Sexual and protective.

I don't have a boy. I haven't thought about. It's not really on my radar of things I care about.

It's a personal choice. And people that inquire and or comment on the condition of another kids penis is sex offender status, IMO. (Not you OP. Just in general. I'm sure you've seen the type here on CM).

 I had it done .... I don't regret it..... It is the norm..... and as for as Health reasons.....There is no reason not to have it done. It is a personal choice of what you want for your child....

I wanted it...and therefore.....We did it.

the foreskin has no purpose.... and can cause issues if the child is not clean and if this man wants to serve our country they will do it to him when he enlists... ouch!!!  Most choose to have sons look as daddy does.... I have never had an uncirced partner.... so my one son is without the turtleneck!

I think it should be illegal for parents to decide that for their sons unless medically necessary. I think the decision should lie with the person who has the penis. Just my opinion.

Every part of the body serves a purpose.

 So like, I dated a soccer player from Mexico....and he was not circumcised....I was completely and utterly grossed out...and that was the end of it. Nasty...and as I remember that from many many moons ago...I would not put my ds in that position.
