Truth be told, more boys are left intact than cut these days, so more than likely this won't even be an issue, and by golly if my son got involved with a chick who thought his natural body was gross, she's gonna have one mad...
Quote: Originally Posted by EPLisa Thank you for the feedback, everyone. Em, thank you for sharing the article! I am the author of the article, and I am definitely not pro-circ. I am the mother of two little boys (ages 7 and 5) who were not circumcised. When I was pregnant with my oldest son, I searched the internet and asked everyone I could about the pros and cons of circumcision. I had a lot of strong opinions and misinformation to wade through, but...

What do they have to say about that?

What I am trying...

I think though the arguments can be distiled down for use in a debate. It will just take some time to do that, I'll be reading it at least a few times myself just to get a good...

I think the issue Pumpkin is that some may not have the most current version (if any) of adobe acrobat. I am a bit surprised though that it doesn't go out and seek acrobat if it isn't installed. In any case those who want to look into installing it can go here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/ Pick the correct version and install...
