Thanks everybody who has replied so far. I'm bumping this again. The survey will remain open until about Thanksgiving.
Congrats!
Hi Everyone, I'm a college student interested in finding out people's attitudes pertaining to the use of psychotropic drugs such as Ritalin in drug therapies orientated towards children. I'm doing a university sponsored research project on this issue, and I was wondering if all of you could take 1 or 2 minutes to answer just a few short questions. The link to the survey is below. The more responses I receive the more representative the survey will be; so, if you are...
Yes, he will be fine. Its pretty difficult to damage the foreskin actually because it's very durable. If the child exhibits no reaction, this usually means that he is ok. In the very vast majority of cases, only multiple forceful retractions cause scar tissue.

Gonna cut off another body part just in case some jerk-child teases your son about that? Of course not. Like I said, doesn't hold...

I can't believe that moron girl at the end said if her boyfriend wasn't circ'ed then she wouldn't of went out with him! What a ditz! I wish they would've let the intactivist on that show respond to that...

I was born in Europe in the 80s. When I was a few years old, I moved to the U.S. The question of circumcision never crossed my parent's minds, thank goodness. While I understand why circumcision became routine in North America, I'm still amazed at the fact that so many people entertain the idea of cutting off a part of their sons' genitalia, with giving it a second thought. From my experience, the quicker that people realize what circumcision as surgery entails, the...

To the poster above, I would get a second legal opinion. If the child's mother is finding it difficult to support herself, then perhaps you should pursue your case in the best interest of the boy. Waiting several years can be a awful long time, and you should consider and/or try to exhaust all your options before making a final decision.
