My son is lucky to have a mom blessed with an obsession with researching and an unbearably thick headed, stubborn nature. lol My older sister is the only person I know that backed me up, and didn't give me flack when it got out that we would not be circumcising ds...and not because she agreed with me, but was in the process of trying to repair our relationship before I started producing the next generation of the family. lol

I educated the ones that were open to being educated. The persistent ones I would just wear my feelings on my sleeve with. "Ya, mom, it's really creepy and gross to want your grandson to have cosmetic surgery on his genitals because of YOUR sexual preferences." eeewwww....Laugh openly at the really obviously ridiculous straws they sometimes grasp at. And as far as it ever got was for me to tell a couple people something to the effect of, "You might want to cover up. Your ignorance is showing again....We're getting past the point of embarrassed to know you. If you don't either learn to read or to close your mouth once in a while, I'll be too mortified to associate with you anymore." My brother and I didn't talk to each other for a while during my pregnancy, at my insistence, but he eventually laid off. Ds is 11 now and has a close relationship w my bro, with no weird pressure even when "boy" issues come up between them. My bro is one of the few people brave enough to test boundaries with me. lol We're much alike in our temperaments.

Same here. If I was pro-circ and DH was intact, I could certainly use that as an argument to try to prove my point and convince people to circ Some people just get UTI's more than others.

My DH is intact and I was getting UTI's. It wasn't until I read on here on MDC that I should pee after sex that I stopped getting them. It's been a few years now since my last one and I used to get them about 2-3 times a year. Such a simple thing our mothers should have told us.

Exactly. I once had pregnant clients who were trying to decide about circ'ing their expected baby. The dad was intact, and said he had always heard it was better to be circ'ed, and wished he had been. I told him "happily" that he still could be! In fact, I said, he could have it done without anesthetic, as a way of trying out in advance what he would be putting his infant son through.

Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.

Unfortunately, I don't know. I lost touch with them before the birth. Let's hope.

As a former RN, it is no harder to catheterize an intact man than a cut man. To state otherwise is absolutely ridiculous.
