why did i even bother...i recently (as of a week ago) found out the TRUTH about circumcision...unfortunately it was three and a half years too late for my precious little boy. i'm dealing with very serious regret. My mother was a nurse...she told me the logical benefits of circumcision...she had trouble with my little bro who ended up "needing" circumcision at AGE FIVE!!!!!!
So, I guess that convinced me, in spite of my dad's incredible opposition, to circumcise. So, to make a long story short...now that I know the truth, I apologized to my dad for not listening to him...and I asked him to share the mdc articles with my mother. I guess I was hoping, to A) get her to understand the error of her way (even though uninformed and well-intentioned) and B)get her to sympathize with my regret...and I was hoping that she would in turn feel regretful for her decisions so she could understand me better. (believe me, I'm not saying that I wanted her to feel bad, but I wanted her to feel bad).
I just asked her about it, if she'd read the article. She read one and said, WOW it's amazing how much they know about circumcision now. As though this was unknown info...I think it was known, but brushed aside.
She didn't feel bad at all, though. She said she could understand why I would wonder about my decision and why I might not choose that again.
But she couldn't understand why I should feel bad about it.
AARRRGGGHHH!!!!!!! So now I wonder if it was even worth passing on to her, or should I just have kept my mouth shut. Now she'll probably just assume that I'll be judgmental of her. UggGHHH!!!!! No wonder I was so afraid to have a daughter---thank goodness I do have a daughter though!
