I always think the same thing jenP.  When people say they would pay. I just don't get it.

Son or daughter, I would be very sad if they wanted to radically alter their perfectly normal genitals. I would feel I had failed as a parent to instill in them pride and happiness with their normal bodies. I would feel the same if they wanted to get ANY kind of radical cosmetic surgery, but especially radical genital surgery, because it affects not just looks but FUNCTION. I would support their right as an adult to choose; however, I would not be in favor of the choice they were making. Not that I would go around nagging them about it; it IS their choice, but I wouldn't be "supporting" that choice and I CERTAINLY would not pay for it! Search around the net for "extreme body modifications." How many of these would you PAY for your child to have done to his/her body?


Well, for people who prefer men to be circumcised (for religion?) but just don't want to impugn their kid's human rights, it makes sense.

 

Personally, I'd be equally supportive regardless of the child's sex--which means give them moral support but not money.

I would leave any man who insisted that I mutilate my child in any fashion. That is NOT the action of a loving father....that is the act of a closed-minded child who can't face his own demons and needs to desperately. He has NO RIGHT to alter his son's penis, end of story. I would absolutely divorce my husband if need be.

What is to stop him from taking your son and having it done behind your back during visitation?  (The same response I give to people who say:  my husband insists on spanking, CIO, etc.)
