Uhm, old episode of Charmed...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So, I'm watching older episodes of Charmed. Piper and Leo have their first child and are thinking it's going to be a girl...when the baby is born they turn him around to show a full frontal shot to show the shock of "OMG it's a boy!!!"

and I'm about 90% sure he's circ'd...right out of the womb apparently.

It's hard to tell but yeah...

I can try to get a crappy screen shot if you like...

I'm not sure I saw that. But they did advocate strongly on breastfeeding in an episode with baby Wyatt.

That's the best screen shot I could get

I haven't watched the show before, but it looks like they are in a home. Was it a home birth?

Hard to tell. Looks like a maybe? But, remember that the baby is technically an "actor" - so the producers didn't have any say in whether or not he was circ'd. I mean, they could have chosen an intact baby to play the part, but really, they probably just weren't thinking about it.

Logically I know that...but I couldn't help but notice and find it weird.

Well, there is the VERY rare condition where a baby is born with little or no foreskin - It's called Aposthia.

It's written on medical records as a birth defect...strange since they usually treat foreskin like a birth defect

I can't see much in that picture, but Charmed did not make it to this list:

I really think it is a very interesting database. I'd love to see a similar one for breastfeeding.

It would have made sense to choose an intact baby actor to play a newborn.

If you look at the link I posted, you'll see that Friends addressed the issue of hiring an intact actor.

In that screen shot I can't even tell if he actually has a penis.

A little OT, but on the season finale of Army Wives this year, the baby came out of the womb complete with a belly button. I'm not sure producers actually pay much attention to this stuff...

My friend was born with that that. At first I thought he was BSing me or his parents were BSing him, but after knowing him now for 10 years I'm pretty sure he was telling the truth. He also said it was listed as a birth defect.

I can't tell from the picture but probably the producers didn't even think about that. I wouldn't have thought anything of it except you mentioned it. Honestly the whole belly button would have stuck me as odd before looking close enough to realize the baby was circed or not.

The baby on LOST (Aaron) was born circumcised too
post #18 of 25
I looked at the pic and zoomed in on my iPhone. He's circed.

Maybe I should be more upset about it, being that I am incredibley anti-circ, but at the moment, I am just finding it funny that all these babies are born with foreskin and with a belly button! Maybe they shoudl show a baby girl born with a little set of earings in her ears.

No wonder so many people have no idea what to expect at the birth of a baby.
