For men, I think the Penn and Teller episode is really effective. It's funny, it seems to speak to men, it presents both the "pro" & "con" side, and invites discussion at the end since you don't know if the couple did or didn't circ their son. So...maybe send him the P&T BS circ video after you talk to him (or instead of). I'm pretty sure it can be found on google video.

I've found many nurses here seem almost opposed to the idea, it shocked me! I'm an OB RN and I my second child was a homebirth.

I live in TX (not exactly mid-west but my area is a high circ area). My son is intact and no problems ever. We have friends from the neighborhood who have a son about the same age as mine. By all definitions, they look like the kind of family that would circ (meaning fairly mainstream). They didn't. Everything else is pretty mainstream about them and they are both very educated people. They once saw a documentary about David Reimer. That made them decide that they...

I BELIEVE in the intactivist cause, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to be a warrior. They've invited me to a lunch on Thursday... I still don't know if I should go or not. You know, some people can be very vocal and even confrontational, some are comfortable only saying stuff online, others never speak a word of...
Thanks for the update! Hope your son is feeling better soon!

Interesting! Most of the nurses on this board and the ones I know IRL don't circumcise. It sounds like the...
