Every time they start with their scare tactics, share what you know about a baby who has died or been injured from circumcision. There should be plenty of stories online. Then ask them, "wouldn't...

Thanks! I agree with the replies and have no intention of getting my son or any possible future sons circumcised. However, when you read about males getting circumcised at age 4, 10, 25, etc....

I have also read about men who don't like being intact but haven't really done anything about it because it's embarrassing and complicated. I don't want to cut off any part of my son that's meant to...

We live in a country where most adult males are circumcised, so most of us grew up thinking of the cut penis as normal. When I was young, I just assumed boys were born that way. When I learned about...

Is that normal? He's 8 months old now and his body seems to be fine with everything else. However, when he has the smallest amount of grains, he starts vomiting about an hour or two after he has...

He'll be okay. At least tell her to make sure they give him something to prevent him from being in too much pain. After that I'm sure he'll grow up living in ignorant bliss like most circumcised...

Kind of silly, but when I was 18 I thought that I might someday want to have cosmetic surgery on my vag area to make it "prettier". I was dumb, I know, and it also shows you how underdeveloped the...

My son is only 7 months, but he's doing fine so far. Maybe he's supposed to be "unfine" once his foreskin retracts.
 
I assume he'll be dealing with infections at first. Then I will have to...

I just want to believe that the babies of parents who don't know any better have some kind of pain relief.

My son isn't circumcised, and I'm so relieved that I did my research when I was pregnant. Whether it's painful or not, it's still unreasonable to strap down a child and cut off a healthy part of his...
