A friend of mine showed her younger (13 year old, mature-for-his-age) brother a video of infant circumcision last night.  He is intact and had asked her what circumcision was.

 

He wrote the following piece after watching the video, and I thought it was one of the most straightforward perspectives I've ever read on the subject, colorful language not withstanding.  I hope my son feels the same way about his body that this young man does.  If I'm very, very lucky, he'll be half as articulate!

Just a quick reminder of the forum guidelines:
Quote:
. In an effort to minimize language which might alienate those seeking information, we are cautious about using pejorative terms such as abuse, barbarism, mutilation, etc. when routinely discussing circumcision. Let the facts speak for themselves.
This would include comparing circ to torture. Thanks!
