I have not had to deal with other children commenting on ds's normal penis,but I fully intend to point out to anyone who does tease him that,"Boys that are circumcised are the ones with a *funny looking* penis that had normal and IMPORTANT parts cut off that he can never get back."
I don't care if ds is the only intact boy in this city.He is the normal one,and the rest are just teasing to make up for their loss because they can not come to terms with the loss.
And I agree that the nurse was TOTALLY out of line.What would have been said in a low circ rate area?
Why the need to cut up all the boys so they match? Like this creates some sort of male bonding community???
Just keep reminding yourself and your son that he is the one with normal genitals,and the rest can either come to terms with the loss or tease intact counterparts to make themselves feel better.
They lost something very important,and in most cases it was their parents who made that choice for them.Parents they love and trust. They want to believe that the circumcision was done for valid reasons,and that those who were uncut had parents who did not care enough to have made
the *right* choice.
