Thanks Tara,

I think my grandson 5 1/2 will have no problems he already told the neighbor boy that his penis is so short because his parents circumcised him and his is long because he is intact (and he was proud of it).

We had 4 boys from Berlin, Germany over here for a few weeks and they all changed swimming trunks right in front of him and of course all of them were intact. One day my grandson decided to tell them that they are lucky that they were not circumcised. :LOL

The funny thing was that they were 8 - 15 yrs. old and had no clue as to what he was talking about, since they had never seen or heard anything about circumcision.

That is soooooo cute! Good for him, he has every right to be proud, as do you Grandma!

Take care,

I've been a way for a while, but pondering a couple of things. One came up in the "should it be legal" thread, and this is the other one. DS is intact; the other boys born to friends recently were circ'ed. I was wondering (and dreaming about throwing it in the parents' faces) what the parents would say if their sons ask them about their missing foreskins. Then I thought I can tell DS that I loved him just the way he was and didn't want him to hurt. Then I realized that my DS might interpret that to mean the other parents didn't like their sons and didn't care that they were hurt (never mind that this is possibly/probably true, both friends made the choice very knowingly). Then I wondered if boys ever ask about it. Has anyone's son asked about circ (whether they were or weren't) and how did you answer? Ironically, if DS were circ'ed because I didn't do my homework, I know what I would have said. Somethihng like, "I didn't know better at the time, and I'm sorry. Can you forgive me?"

As much media attention as this issue has been getting lately and will be getting in the future, it will be unusual to be able to honestly tell your son "I didn't know." That's an excuse that worked in the past but not in the future. I think it would be absolutely nuts to do this expecting to be able to explain it away.

In the past, parents got a free ride on this one but there will be no free ride for parents in the future and they don't deserve a free ride if they are aware of the issues.

Hey, Frank. I see you now have five hundred posts to your name. You're half-way there (to one thousand - when you can pick your own senior member title). Congrats.

Wow! I didn't even notice! Proves you can say a lot and still say nothing!

Yep. My post count is certainly proof of that.
