.....These are the words of my Circ'ed Dh who wanted to Circ ds, but I fought till I was about to go to a divorce attorney. Anyway the point is you can change your DP's minds and now that he sees his sons beautiful intact penis it pains to even think he was going to mutilate it. He also said he hopes we have another boy so there will be another intact male around.
Finally I made Dh an Intactavist.!!!!

I admit. I clicked because of the title. That's great though! Should we have a boy it's good to know there is hope of changing dh's mind about this subject.

I'm so glad he changed his mind, and even more happy that you stood firm and refused to have him circ'd no matter what.

Only on MDC could you post that title about your baby and others not think you were crazy. I am glad we have another intactivist on our side. I think the ones who were so certain and then changed their minds, like your Dh, turn into the best advocates.

I admit the title was a shocking for me (as I already said) but now thinking about it, I know what he means. Like sometimes I think of a intact penis (not in a sexual way at all) and imagine what it would be like if my penis was like that, and this comforting/calming feeling sets over me.

I grew up always wondering why I had a scar, and what was changed. The calming feeling can best be described in words as "thats how its suppose to be"

Sadly I dont think most people who are intact, never fully understand the gift they were given.

I think this was a click moment where you husband finally understands what "intact" really means. Not the idea of having a foreskin, but what it really means to be "whole".

guys, Americans are so worked up (I'd even say obsessed) about the whole pedophile thing...it's not even funny...
I think it has a lot to do with the country being so religious and conservative…
kind of sad.

one can't even say such a wonderful thing without being made feel like a pervert

I like the title because I agree-my sons intact penis is beautiful! No really, I mean hes 8 now so I dont even look at it anymore but I remember thinking when I'd change his diapers how much better it looked to me-just whole, not scarred, just the way it was meant to be. So I can understand where she is coming from!!!

Congratz on your dh!! I think its wonderful! I wonder how many other men are very pro circ and then after being around an intact penis for awhile, start to see it differently.

Yeah it really sucks, especially if your a guy. My friends Dad thinks babies are cute and makes faces at little kids sometimes and they laugh, but parents look at him like he is some kind of creep.

Or I had a photography assignment for my class and I asked my female friend to take a few shots for me in the park because I was worried someone would think I was a creep because I was a guy in a park taking pictures of children.

How wonderful! Great title!

My partner wants to circ our sons, even though he knows that I am dead set against circing. I've printed off about oh, 400 pages of information, literature, stories, and pictures, and I have books, and I told him, when it comes time to have children, I'll leave him with my anti-circ info. for a day when he promises to read through everything, and then when I come back, I know he'll become an Intactavist!

Uh. If there was a guy taking pics of my kids in the park I would think he was creepy and act accordingly.

That's good that your dh is onboard with your decsision now OP! Although I do think it's a little funny to use the word 'beautiful' to decribe a little baby's penis. Not the word that jumps to mind for me

Would you have the same reaction if it was a teen-girl, or a woman, then if it were a teen-boy or a man?

It really annoys me when people like to pretend statistics don't count. Like the fact that the majority of sexual predators in this country are male.

Great title....totally agree. Leaving DS alone was one of the best parenting decisions we have ever made. He is beautiful, whole and pure. And I clicked on this thread because I *knew* what the OP meant. It never occured to me to think anything else

You know, I am as concerned about pedophiles as any other parent but OMG, a parent should be able to gush about how beautiful, natural and perfect their child is without it raising an eyebrow.

Congrats on the beautiful baby and for being such an advocate. Thanks for sharing.

That is wonderful!! I have already told my DH that if we have a boy thta there is no way he'd be circ'd. I think he secretly thought he could change my mind until we talked more about it one night & I used the fingernail comparison & he kinda sat up straighter & said "hmmmm' Like it turned something on in his head.. maybe I won't have to fight hard.

Sadly my own dh was called out for taking pics-and I was with him, as were his 3 kids! Ridiculous, I'm sorry, but it is. We just encourage pedophiles by being so puritan, ugh.

I was a little put off...but I think all my children, and all their perfect parts are beautiful. So yes, I suppose I think my sons' whole penises (penii?) are beautiful too. Though I don't generally mention it to my friends!!

Personally, I totally would.
If anyone I didn't know was taking pictures of my son I would be automatically be very angry and assume the worst.
I can't think of a single good reason anyone would have for taking pictures of kids they don't know without permission.
Case in point, M, J and I were at the fish store and J made friends with the cutest little girl. They really hit it off, J followed her everywhere and they ended up sitting next to eachother on a display. I made sure to get her mother's permission before taking a pic of them together. I didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable, but it was too cute to not catch on film.
It's sad but that is the reality of the world we live in today.

I think it is a strange title to a post and a strange thought to have but I have thought the same thing about my son many, many times.

After being exposed to circumcised penises, especially newly circumcised penises - an intact penis is a beautiful, perfect thing.
