We're all alone here :-(
My dad and his bro's are circed. My half bro and step bros (altho one step bro who just got married is pretty crunchy so MAYBE when they have kids... here's hoping)
My cousing married a girl he met in Germany and they have a son. Is circ in Germany culture good or bad? I'm sure he's potty trained by now so I won't get to take a peak hahaha
Any friends I have- all circ and "it's best... he'll have to get it done later" blah blah
Actually, my mother's super crunchy cousin didn't circ her son. He's like 30 now though. She also BF till he was about 4 :-)

Yes, I know fewer circed boys than intact ones. I'm surrounded by people who don't circ, so I guess I assume too much. At a book party, a friend was showing me a book on puberty that she bought for her son. I looked at the pages and frowned when I got to the penis picture and said "why on earth would they have a picture of a circed penis?" and she kind of looked at me surprised and said that she circed her son. I responded "yeah, but my son isn't and I'd want him to read a book that showed a penis that looked like his."

The day I had my son, he was the only boy born in the hospital that week that didn't get circed. The only one! My husband wouldn't let my son out of his sight because he was afraid that someone would circ him while we weren't looking. We had issues with that hospital pushing their views onto us before, so we knew to look out for ourselves.

In my fifteen years of being a nanny the only boys I took care of that were circ'd were Jewish. The rest which is a lot were all intact. Not one of my douls clients has circ'd and the ones that ended up with girls were not going to circ of it was a boy. No if I could on;y educate my naive little sister. She is not ttc yet but she of I'll let daddy make the decision mentality, and she thinks it is purely cosmetic. There dog is tailess and his ears are pinned, I guess that is were they stand

DS is the only intact boy I know. We are familiar with three other boys. Two of them were born in the last two years. With both I tried to talk their moms into keeping them intact. One of them even said she would and the dad was intact, but she cut him anyway. No idea why.

I have seen quite a few diaper changes at DS's daycare and they're always cut. Once I thought I glimpsed an intact infant as I walked past, but it was too quick to tell. I wouldn't be surprised if DS was the only intact boy in his whole daycare. We live in Ohio, circumcision central.

The only people I know IRL with intact sons, I met through here or another board I'm on. Otherwise, the boys I know (family, friends, playgroups) are all circed. It makes me sad.

My two little boys. :

I know a few little boys that are as well.

My two closest friends have intact boys and my brother and father are also intact. My Dad was born and raised in Scotland, so intact is normal. DH and his brother are circed though.

Most of the little boys in my circle of friends are intact, including, if course, DS. In fact, I only know one boy in our circle who is circ'd. My father and DH are intact, but all of my other nephews are circ'd, as is my brother. I think all or most of dh's nephews are intact.

We know several. Many of our friends and my immediate family do not circ. A few do, including a boy I sat for. Ben knows the difference. Even tho he is only 7, he recognized the differences and we talked about it.

My son is intact and so are all of our friends sons!!!! I have a very crunchy group of friends

I'm glad to say that almost every little boy in my church playgroup is intact. When/if we have a son, he won't be alone in that group. :

My brothers are also intact

Well most of the boy babes in my LLL group are intact...at work, one of the more "mainstream" moms really surprised me by saying she didn't circ due to it being cruel and not needed...that gave me hope that more people will stop doing it! My best friend circ'd her son( 2 yrs older than mine)

Most of the little boys we know are intact, but then we hang with a very crunchy group of people.

In general I don't really know which boys are and which aren't. I can make guesses based on cultural background but I don't know everybodies religion. Most of the adult men in my family are intact, but my one and only nephew is circ'd and so is DH. Most of my close IRL friends just don't have any children.

My sis who is TTC will definitly keep any boy intact though.
post #40 of 110
In the last year, as a doula and a nanny (in both California and Virginia), I've worked with 13 families that had boys under the age of two. Of those 13, only 3 are circumcised. So yes, I'm happy to say that I know a lot of intact boys . My son is 4 years old and in just the last 4 years the intact rates have been climbing and climbing (in my experience).
