My dad (he's 93) wasn't c'd when he was born. As an adolescent, he got an infection, and had to be c'd when he was 17. Mind you, that was back in the 30's but it was such a horrible experience for him that when I was born, he made sure I was - not wanting me to go through the pain and suffering he did as a teen.


I don't have any children - but had I had a son, it wouldn't have been a big deal but I'm sure something my wife and I would have discussed.

Leave the darn thing alone.
Speaking as a woman, which I am, I agree with the decision not to circumcise a baby ever, regardless of whatever religion one practices, and believe routine circumcision should be outlawed at the federal level, unless there is a very unique and serious medical problem, which is highly unlikely. It is utterly unfair to irrevocably damage an infant who has no choice whatsoever in the matter.

The physical pleasure that a man and a woman both receive from an intact foreskin is undeniable.

The only issue I have ever encountered was an ex who had an unusually long foreskin (in the flaccid state), and I don't know if there is a surgery to do partial shortening or removal of a portion of the foreskin for men who have that issue, but in general, I much prefer an intact man. Circumcised organs resemble roughened toadstools/mushrooms to me.

See 4 thousand years ago God told Abraham and his house to get circumcised because people were dirty and never took a bath , and people could get ill in their uncleaned lives and God was trying to help and protect these people who were dirty .......Were today people have clean running water , and people can have a shower or a bath with No problem . so this old law from God in now obsolete .......... As only religions which God is this law will continue to keep to the obsolete rules , but religions which knows God in person know that this old rule is obsolete and people can shower in clean water

Mimoso48, get it done if it will make you feel better. Having grown up at a time when all the boys were circumcised, when as an adult I saw my first uncircumcised guy in a locker room it looked very odd to me. Still does I suppose. I am glad my parents made the choice they did and that we had it done for our son too.

So you chose to mutilate your son for a cultural norm?

Nice.

Some guys have muscles, some don't.
Some have black hair, some don't.
Some have curly hair, some don't.

With all the human variety there is, why on earth would it matter what some guy's penis looks like, and why are you staring at them?

I just said it looked odd to me. To me circumcised is normal. We're all entitled to our opinion.

To me it's not mutilation. What I consider bodily mutilation are tattoos and body piercings. Obviously many people don't see it that way. To each their own.

DON'T. My son (American) wasn't circumcised because I wanted him to match his EU father, and I thought it was BARBARIC anyway.

He has no problem with it. It's a part of a person's body they're BORN with.

I think I remember hearing it's really PAINFUL to have done.
