Ok, so my 18 month nephew is circ'd, but he has a very loose circ, from my understanding (haven't changed his diaper) and MIL says his penis looks pretty similar to my son's. I have seen loose circ's discussed on this board, and am wondering a few things aloud...
- of course, circ (RIC) is absolutely not necessary and I would love to see the practice come to an abrupt end, but does anyone else think that doctors are trending towards leaving more foreskin? I realize this causes many problems, but do you think the info on benefits of foreskin are affecting their practice at all and influencing how much they cut?
-WHY on earth would anybody with a boy who has a loose circ then try to even imagine that an intact boy is dirty? They have the same folds of skin, the same mucosa membrane (according to some doctors, harboring STDS and nasties) and are missing the part designed to keep the penis clean during the diaper years
Am I missing anything here? Not that any RIC circ has benefits, but this is even going against the imaginary health benefits that many people use!
