its amazing how the human race has managed to survive as long as it has with all the advice given by mom, MIL, and even grandmas!
: i got lucky...my mom and my MIL have never EVER commented about it...my mom was actually in the medical profession and has performed the procedure herself
she told me before my first was born that there was no medical reason for it, and if my babe was a boy, that i should leave it alone!
dont worry, your ds will thank you later for leaving HIS penis alone, i mean, after all it IS part of HIS body to do with as HE wants. just because someone is a parent doesnt give them the right to start cutting off parts of their childs body! life threatening situations not withstanding of course.
