Do intact men appreciate their status?

I have been on this board and others concerned with circumcision for a good many years. Every so often a post will mention an intact Dad who wishes to circumcise his son. This totally baffles me. ...

Yes, I know that was the mindset within the medical community, but what gets me is the disconnect between that mindset and what simple logic would suggest. For instance believing that babies don't...

I think that you are correct about the money, but I also believe that there is something else going on. I know an elderly doctor, long retired, and one of the nicest people one could meet. His own...

Not sure about this, as men with foreskin envy have enough common sense and consciousness about circumcision to realize that amputating a boys foreskin is a bad idea and, by extension, less likely to...

Good for you for refusing the catheter and protecting your son. I have always viewed them as highly invasive, and as Jo pointed out they have been known to cause UTIs. You are way more informed...
