I'm not sure I understand the MDC policy on discussion of circumcision, just want to make sure I do and that I am welcome here. We circumcise for religious reasons. I have no need or desire to discuss this decision with anyone, but I do wonder whether I am allowed to mention it. Obviously I do not look at the anti-circ board, so I do not mean that forum, just in general posts such as in my DDC, e.g. "I practice AP and my son is circumcised according to my religious practices," something like that. FWIW, I waited a long time to join MDC because I assumed I would be unwelcome, and up to this point I have avoided mentioning it altogether. But that seems rather intolerant for a place that is otherwise so tolerant and compassionate. I certainly respect others' views, but I am sometimes shocked by the severity of wording and/or disparagement of what, for me, is a religious practice, that I see in signature lines and posts.
