We were at a family gathering last evening (my entire family is pro-circ except us) watching tv and a program was turned on about dogs. Someone made a comment about how they liked the look of the docked tail on a dog they showed on the program, and my husband responded, "well, its not natural, so I don't like it or think that its right." My dad made the comment that he didn't think it was right either becaue it may cause the dog pain, and my DH responded, "well, then why in gods green earth do you think circumcision is okay? do you not think that is something that causes a baby pain? Its only done for looks just like the dogs tail." My dad said, "you know, I never thought of it like that. Maybe you guys are right for not doing it."
I was shockedfirst that DH made such a connection between the two with no prompting from me, and second that my dad might have had a revalation. I'm so proud of both of them!!!!: It seems like the more time that goes by the more DH is so supportive of leaving boys intact, something I thought would never happen. Maybe I'll turn him into a true intactivist yet!
