I'm so proud of you for getting rid of your societal fears and the burden that comes along with that.

Hopefully, though, you'll get to the point where you don't consider it a choice at all.........even for your adult son. (If, as an adult, my daughter wanted genital surgery, I would really worry about her mental heath. I wouldn't want her to consider it a "choice" at all.)

But you don't leave a daughter intact thinking, "She can always decide for herself later." It should be the same for sons.

Oh, you'd be surprised. Unfortunately I don't think that this type of mentality is linked just to circ.
