I've been a way for a while, but pondering a couple of things. One came up in the "should it be legal" thread, and this is the other one. DS is intact; the other boys born to friends recently were circ'ed. I was wondering (and dreaming about throwing it in the parents' faces) what the parents would say if their sons ask them about their missing foreskins. Then I thought I can tell DS that I loved him just the way he was and didn't want him to hurt. Then I realized that my DS might interpret that to mean the other parents didn't like their sons and didn't care that they were hurt (never mind that this is possibly/probably true, both friends made the choice very knowingly). Then I wondered if boys ever ask about it. Has anyone's son asked about circ (whether they were or weren't) and how did you answer? Ironically, if DS were circ'ed because I didn't do my homework, I know what I would have said. Somethihng like, "I didn't know better at the time, and I'm sorry. Can you forgive me?"
