About your blog, the extra finger is only just "hanging there" and doesn't look useful even. Foreskins are useful and meant to be there.

He also feels that once you get emotional, you have lost control and have lost the argument.... this is COMPLETELY emotional for me - as I feel it should be.
I posted it so that someone reading might get a better understanding of his mindset and the way he deals with information.

What I'm wondering is, if he's done all the research, why does he think that your DS would be made fun of in the "locker room"? Intact penises are becoming more and more the norm each year, with almost half being intact right now. So it's not likely he'd be the odd boy out with a foreskin anyway!
Has he thought about that fact, that it'll probably be about 50/50 anyway?
Good luck mama.

With other birth defects, the aim is to FIX them! But by cutting off foreskins people are actually subjecting their child to something which is listed as a birth defect. Does he want to give your child unnecessary surgery to give him a cleft lip? Does he want to give your child unnecessary surgery to give him club feet? No? So why does he want to give your child unnecessary surgery to give him a penis birth defect?
