I'm sorry he's giving you grief mama, but just gently tell your DH no. Please don't let your son be circed. Has your husband seen a circ video or photos? I'm in Texas too and the circ rate is dropping. It isn't as high as it was when your DH was in school. It seems like you are in S. TX or maybe the Galveston area?? If so, your circ rate will be much lower than it is in my area of N. TX.
And kids are teased for all types of reasons. What if your son needs glasses to see or braces? Will you forgo those in order to avoid teasing? What if your son is chubby? Will you get him liposuction (also a cosmetic surgical procedure) to avoid his peers teasing?
The way I see it, your son was born perfectly with all his natural parts. Your DH is wanting to subject him to a painful, unnecessary surgical procedure. The work now falls on your DH's shoulders to prove why
your son needs
surgery. Can he research the subject and find a real need (potential teasing is not a need)? If anyone notices or cares that your son is intact (or if it bothers your son one day), your son can choose to have a circ. But once it's done, it can't be undone. And from what I've read and heard, boys don't shower together like they used to, boys don't make comments about other boys genitals, and the intact rate is so much higher now. I highly doubt your son will ever be teased.
For what it's worth, my son is school aged and intact. He's never had any issues with teasing or infection or even looking different than his circed dad. My friend's w/ intact, school aged boys have never been teased either.

Maybe these would be good for your DH to read/view:http://www.askdrsears.com/html/1/T012000.asphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiEOiAkQRSYhttp://www.healthcentral.com/drdean/408/9985.htmlhttp://mgmbill.org/statistics.htm
Good luck, mama. Please have your DH watch some circ videos, even the Penn and Teller episode if he isn't offended by R rated language or nudity. That episode hits home for some men. Other people will have other suggestions for you soon.
Congratulations on your new little boy!
