Luckily, this is not even an issue at my house. My husband is uncircumcised, which was very unusual for our part of the country in the '70s. He was the first uncirc'd man I ever met. As for the people that say it's ugly, I think they are WAY exaggerating things. Yeah, it looks a little unusual at first, but it's NOT ugly! I love his little turtleneck
I have one sister that sort of freaked when I told her that we will not be circumcising if we ever have a boy. She used to be a nursing student, and said she witnessed an operation where a 17-year old had to be circumcised because he got infected. I was like, "well, DH is 30, and it hasn't been an issue for him!" My MIL had a great comeback, when people used to tell her that DH's penis would be harder to keep clean: "What other body parts are we going to start cutting off because we're too lazy to clean them??"
I understand, to a degree, the people who circ for religious reasons. What I really hate is when people do it because 1) they want the baby to look like the father, or 2) for social reasons. My Bradley teacher personally doesn't really want to circ their upcoming child, should it be a boy, but the husband does, so she is making him do all the work concerning it, as in finding the person to do it, taking him there, taking care of it, etc. The man said he wants to circ his son because of "locker room" issues (he was an athlete). I asked my husband what he thought of that (he was never an athlete, but took P.E. classes). He said nobody he knew ever spent time in the locker room looking at other guys' penises, so he didn't get that at all :LOL
The Penn and Teller episode on circumcising was great, BTW!
