Daddy is circ'ed, our DS is intact. None of our kids would have been circ'ed had they all been boys, though.

Daddy intact, both sons intact, but we're European (British/Norwegian), so maybe we don't count.

DH is circ'd - all sons are intact.

In my case, that means that both dh and my ex are circ'd (I've never seen an intact adult penis irl). DS1 (ex's son) and ds2 (dh's son) are intact.

I voted for the first, though it doesn't tell our whole story. DH is the only circ'd male amongst his relatives. The only reason DH is circ'd is b/c MIL, who spoke practically no English at the time, didn't understand what she was agreeing to when she gave consent.

Wow, how sad. That is why IMO circ (if it's still legal, I would rather it be illegal altogether!) should be a procedure that people have to "opt into" rather than "opt out of." Parents who want to circ should have to work really hard to make it happen, rather than parents having to work hard to keep their kid from getting circ'ed.

It's just way too easy to circ babies when it's just a standard thing that you give consent to while in the hospital!
