So sad... 9mo DN getting circed Friday - Page 3

post #41 of 47
I am sorry. I know you must be so upset. I am heartbroken for your dn, but I am FUMING that your brother is letting this happen. He hates his foreskin? I suppose he could sign up for a circumcision and request only a pacifier dipped in sugar to quell the pain.

It wouldn't surprise me if your SIL is making him feel bad about his NORMAL body. This is one reason I want to move out of the country before I have children. I want out of this crazy penis-hacking country!

I like the "Grow some "B@!!S and Man Up" comment. He's probably maimed from hacking up 4 soon to be 5 of their son's sex organ! Whats that say about his NORMAL intact body? She doesn't realize how good she has it. Any woman with an intact dh is a lucky woman!

I am so sad to hear this. Have you sent her the shocking videos of this barbaric practices being done to be babies? if she is going to do this to her son, she should at least watch what her son will endure, maybe that will change her mind. Have you printed out a few articles such as those by Fliess and others for her to read? I dont know how after watching the videos, after being confronted with the reality of what this is, the removal of a normal and healthy part of his body, permenantly and without his consent, any parent could say, yes, thats what I want for him, for him to be tortured, and mutilated, his perfect healthy little body defiled and made unwhole.

This thread reminds me of my brother (aside from the fact that he isn't intact) and sil so much it's sad. I had told him to man up, grow some you-know-whats, stop being a "thing that says meow" many times and not just about circ but his whole relationship. Unfortunately my sil insisted on circing my dn, "for no compelling reason" according to my brother other than that's how she wanted it to look. And I have my suspicions that she has abuse in her past as well as possibly undiagnosed bipolar disorder. I have a hard time talking to my brother now, though he wants me to be proud of him for yelling at the doctor, but in the end he said do whatever you want, I'll have no part of it and he left. The bitter, sarcastic thought that comes to mind? That the baby got off "easy" just losing his foreskin given what my sil removed from my brother!!
Forgive me, I'm feeling so bitter and sad right now and I'm not sure if I can maintain my relationship with my brother for the time being, so to the OP: I feel your pain and anger but unfortunately can't offer advice, I'm not feeling so mature and forgiving these days!
