So I've done so much research for the pro's and con's of being circumcised. I tried to keep an open mind, my Husband has his foot down and wants our son circumcised like him. I wanted to do the best thing for our future son and I was shocked with the things I learned about circumcision. I'm completely ANTI circumcision now and I want our son intact. But my husband wont listen, he doesn't care about the facts all he cares about is that intact penis' look "gross". This infuriates me and almost makes me wish We were having a girl instead, I just want to protect my son from an unnecessary and quite painful and irreversible procedure. Any idea's on how to persuade my husband to seeing my point of view? I've mentioned why not keeping him intact since we cannot agree this way he can someday have it done, where as if we do it now he can never go back. But my husband argues that it's gross and he wouldn't want an adult to do it, if you don't do it as a child than it's stupid to do it as an adult. ( which makes no sense to me )
By the way if you are undecided I highly recommend spending just a few hours doing some thorough research ( why not it's your sons future we are talking about ) I came across several youtube video's that were startling and changed my mind immediately!
You do have to sign in due to the graphic nature of the video's
the first one is very informative and here is the link ----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_dzeDvx2QA
This second link I warn you is shocking and made me sick but I think if you are willing to circumcise your son than it is important to see the actual procedure itself -----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDuDhkiDdns
And lastly I came across a book that I found to be very informative as well. --> http://mensightmagazine.com/Articles/Fleiss,%20M.%20Paul/tellaboutcirc.htm
Sorry this was so long, I'm just so frustrated and Not sure how to get through to my husband, we never disagree but on this we just can't. :(
