Everyone makes such good points. I do appreicate it. I'm really glad everyone took so much time to reply. At this point I'm just too tired to comment. I have lots of things going on and I may step away from the boards for a while just because I'm feeling too overwhelmed by information at this point. I do want to say that I have taken my son into consideration, and just because I chose to state opposing reasoning does not mean that we are planning on circ. If anything we are more likely not to, but even if we don't, I don't feel like its something we will ever bring up with people again. People have been really kind in their responses, but some have not and it really does make me not want to talk about it with anyone anymore. I'm probably just being hormonal again, but even if we don't circ our son (which we probably wont) I don't think I want to have people judging me or laying my friendship on the line based upon whether or not they agree with the issue or not. I understand why people wouldn't want to be friends with someone who decided to circ. when its such a hot button issue/personal issue, but in a way, I couldn't not be friends with those people I know who have circ. their sons based only on that single decision. Again, I understand why people would decide that, but that kind of sickens me in much the same way the circ. issue sickens anti-circ people in general. So thank you again for the information and allowing me to discuss it here. It was a great discussion and I learned a lot.
