(That post title should get some hits...)  A while back, someone posted a really good post about what we can say to friends who have decided to circumcise to help them minimize the damage.  It said things like "here's how to make sure that your baby gets anesthesia," and "you'll need to have vaseline and whatever to clean the wound."  It was nicely written (not as a guilt trip), and presented good information (but also had the nice side effect of pointing out several of the down sides of circing again).  Does anyone know how I can find that post?  Does anyone else remember it?

Yeah, that sounds right.  I think someone posted it on here as a response to someone who had given up on trying to convince someone not to do it...I just can't think of what to search for that would pull it up.  I'm sort of hoping whoever originally posted it will log on and repost! Thanks.
