I have a friend/ next door neighbor (so I see her everyday) who is pregnant. She knows I'm anti-circ we've discussed it a few times and she was completely unaware of anything to do with circ. just figured everyone did it, it must be neccessary and important to do. I jokingly mentioned tonight that I'll leave her alone on the circ issue until she knows what she's having boy or girl. And she said very definitivly if it's a boy we're circing. Now this got my dander up as I'm becoming increasingly an intactivist. She also said her brother just had a son a few days ago and claimed he slept through the entire circ. Really people, you really think that little baby slept while he got a whopping hunk of his penis cut off? Now I'm going to hold true to my word and not bombard her with info until she finds out if she will have to make the circ or intact decision. But if she is having a boy how do I thoughtfully present her with info to hopefully change her mind? I realize I can't change peoples minds for them (a big frustration of mine!) But nor do I want her to just decide to circ because of misinformation, thinking it's the thing to do.
