My brother's son and my sister's son are both intact . I have no idea about my DS's playmates. I'm assuming that since the circ rate in Utah is so high that most of his friends are circed.

As far as I know, its illegal to circumcise children in Germany. There is a movement trying to enact a religious exemption. I seriously doubt a religious exemption will ever pass since Germany does not tolerate circumcising infants, children or their youth, at all!

None of the baby boys I know are circ'd here. I have changed a few diapers on friend's babies and have yet to see a circ'd penis. I did see one at a LLL meeting, and almost cried when I saw how it looked. I had forgotten what a circ'd penis actually looks like, and it was just horrible.

Sadly I don't, but if my BFF had had sons I know they would be intact since her dh is and they are both pro-intact.

Thanks for the Germany info! It gives me hope that he's not circed.

My DS is whole, perfect and beautiful. Until I had him, I'd never seen an uncirced penis! Anyway- out of 8 grandkids on hubby's side and 3g'kids on the other- mine is the only one who is intact. No one has challlenged me about it- which I am surprised about- and they've all seen him nakeybutt. The LLL I go to most boys are intact.
My sweet baby is beauiful just the way he is!

Yeah. My two boys, my sister's twin boys, my cousins each have a boy and they are both intact. I have friends with intact boys. I'm near Ann Arbor, though, so it is fairly common here. (Compared to the rest of MI!)

Oh, yes, for sure!

Most of the little boys in our circle of friends and family are not circumsized.

There are some who are circumsized and I'm always a little surprised by that (and a little sad).

But, the trend seems to be changing, at least anecdotally from what I've seen.

Most of the boys I know are intact and the men that I have know are about 75% intact : In BC (i don't know about the rest of Canada) it is not covered by insurance unless medically necessary so most parent don't do it.

At a nursing drop in one day though I did see a freshly done one while a new mama was changing her son's diaper and all the other mamas acted very shocked and the poor mama responded that her DH wanted it done. I was very sad for her as she seemed not to have the same opinon as her DH.

I've worked in several daycares in the last 15 years. I've only seen 4. I've worked in MA and NY.

I pray for the day Family Court recognizes that CHILDREN have rights, parents only have PRIVILEGES.  Only then, will I know my child is safe.

We are in Montreal. My son's hockey team are all intact (11 year olds), his class (except two boys for religious reasons) but circumcision is unheard of in the french community. This summer at the wading pool all baby boys, toddlers were intact, I even met a jewish mama that refused to circ her twin boys.

Both of my brother's are.

I haven't been around enough other little boys to know one way or another, besides the kids we've met from MDC.

My two sons.

My godson (mainstream parents).

A friend's son (borderline mainstream/crunchy parents).

Another friend's son (crunchy folks).

And another friend's son (mainstream folks).

My nephew is circumcised as are the boys of our other mainstream friends, who had no clue people DIDN'T circumcise. The nephews on DH's side are all circumcised (three of them) though their father is happily intact. Go figure. :

I do know some, but I think it was my bumper stickers that got me friends who have intact kids. My care has two bumper stickers one says "itactivist, stop infant circumsicion" and the other says "zero tolerance for genital cutting"

so I tend to meet people and talk to them about it based on my sticker (that and my anti vax stickers).

Actually, my mother's super crunchy cousin didn't circ her son. He's like 30 now though. She also BF till he was about 4 :-)
It is a HUGE nono, ONLY medical and relgious and the relgious ones it is alot of paperwork form what I understand. Now on base in germany that is differnt::cause that is american ground. When I had e there ( ifought to have him off base) they came in to ask when I wanted it done so they could sent the referel to base and i could tell that they hated to even ask and when I said that my boy won't have the barbariness thrown on him they smiled so big and sighed a huge sigh of relief, they said it is so rare for americans to be like that::

I don't know of any little boys who are intact, but the only guy I've ever met who I know is intact is my best friend. I'm from the south and circing is really popular there.

Quite a few of the little boys we know in our town are intact. The circ rate in our town is only about 20% (still too high, IMO, but way better than alot of places). Now, back where I grew up is a different story, leaving a little boy intact is virtually unheard of. I've received alot of flak back home for leaving DS intact.
