My friend took her 2-week-old son to the pediatrician for his checkup today along with her (almost) 5-year-old daughter. The pedi asked why she didn't circumcise him (out of total curiosity) and her daughter says, "He's not um-sized because we aren't cutting his penis like that! Have you SEEN the video??"

I swear I responded to this already.  I'm glad the little girls said what she said, especially to an "authority" figure.  However, I truly hope she has not seen the video.  It gives me nightmares. faint.gif

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

Yes, I also responded last night and it's gone. Not sure what's going on.

I'm guessing any of the videos that show an actual infant circ.

I seriously hope that a 5 year old has not seen an Internet video of a circumcision - totally inappropriate.

I don't see any difference between showing a Graphic and disturbing Internet video and a similarly graphic and disturbing video at a Children's museum. There is no reason that a child that young needs to watch such a video.

You edited your reply before I got a chance to get back here but please don't think I was trying to argue - I was just disgusted that a Children's museum would have such a video.
