Absolutely no circumcision planned for this baby, and my son, age 7, is intact as well. It seems that with even a small bit of education, people could be easily convinced to leave boys alone! Sadly that's not the case. But fortunately Christopher's father, who is circed, actually broached the topic with me and it was a no-brainer once we read just one article about it.
Now I'm expecting boy #2 with my new husband and he is also circed BUT was immediately convinced of the wisdom of leaving little boys alone. I frankly can't understand the mindset of men wanted to have it done, though my brother is one of these. My SIL remains upset that it was done to their son.
That said, what continues to irk me is the misinformation. I know of one woman who did not circ her son, on the insistance of his father. Good, right? Well she took no steps to inform herself of the care (or rather, non-care) required by an intact penis and insisted that he regularly and thoroughly pull back his foreskin and scrub, scrub, scrub. He complained that she always had to nag him to do it.
Can you guess the result? Just this month he was circumcised at the age of 8. Sadly, I'm afraid that she will tell the tale of how her son "had" to be circumcised, adding to the misinformation.
I know of more than one child that was circed based solely on the "evidence" of a coworker, whose son similarly "had" to be circed. I don't know the details, but I suspect they were similar to the other case. I wish I could tell the mother of the 8-year-old the correct information, but at this point it would probably just make her feel bad. I just can't understand why she didn't inform herself!
