I had an interesting conversation the other day with a girl very close to me. She is a far ways off from having kids, so I guess there is time. Anyway we were talking and circumcision came up, she comes from, generally a non-circumcising family. Her father's parents are from Italy and he was not circumcised and neither were her two younger brothers, and she is well aware of this. She was saying that went she was in school she had to watch circumcisions being done on baby boys. She said that it was awful and that the babies were in so much pain, and how it was like a conveyeur belt one baby after the other. She found it so awful that she called her dad and told him about it. Her dad then told her thats one of the reasons he didnt do it to her brother because he saw it being done to another boy and he could never do it to his sons (their now 19 and 21).
After she said this I said at least now you know what happens and that you wont do it your kids if they are boys. She said that still would because "its cleaner and it looks...(she cut off there and said) I've never seen an adult one so I dont know." This makes no sense to me, "its awful but I would still do it." She may have stopped herself from completing the sentence because she knows I'm not circumcised and didnt want to hurt my feelings, we are very close, but I am not sure.
To make it more interesting the father and the two sons are completely against circumcision.The 19 year old found it wrong and stupid. And the 21 year old also feels the same way and would never do it to his kids. They both have said that they are happy that it was never done to them, they like their penis just the way it is.
I dont know, I find this very interesting and I just wanted to hear/see your opinion and thoughts on this. Its much appreciated. Thank you.
