Am I reading this right?  Does it say that circ'ed men in the study were 4.53 times more likely to use an erectile disfunction drug?

I find this :

....and yet the comments received from circumcised participants speak to a vast psychic wounding, which, if unresolved, might lead to an unconscious desire to repeat the trauma upon others.

 

in particular to be very strange.  My ex (who no doubt has some type of personality disorder - narcissistic, borderline, SOMETHING), was adamant about almost everything about when our ds was born.  His name took us MONTHS of fighting to decide on, his last name took tons of fighting, his middle name was a huge battle, (and not b/c we couldn't find anything we liked, b/c he had to have the last word) everything was such a fight.  Circ?  He didn't care one bit.  I insisted ds be left intact, and my ex made a half hearted attempt to argue, but didn't push it at all.  Completely anecdotal I know, but I think its strange.

Thanks for this strange story. I'll  be mulling this in the back of my mind.

I witnessed my brother-in-law scolding his mother about her circumcising him. That it wasn't hers to decide but should have been his. Years later he marries and cuts his son. Strange. (The lesson here is even though I though it wasn't needed to give circumcision info, I should have given it JUST THE SAME.)

Circumcised men scored higher on this test. Does circumcision cause emotional issues?

Children who are potty trained tend to be speaking on complex sentences. Does potty training lead to complex language?

 

As the statisticians always say: Correlation is not causation.

 

In the case of potty training and complex sentences -- it has to do with overall age and motor development. I strongly suspect there are similar underlying factors for circumcision.

 

I'd be willing to bet that they can't replicate these findings with Finnish men or another culture where not talking about your feelings is common.
