The only reason I have "blessed" GIRLS is because I would NEVER circ and that is just "nasty".......<br><br>
Man it makes me want to try until I have a boy just so I can show her that an penis is NORMAL when it is not cut apart... It makes her so upset she can't really even talk to me about it!<br><br>
And my grandma and my grandpa (who is not circed) agree with her <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">

They believe that because it has been hammered into their head over a lifetime. It can be hard to overcome that propaganda especially at their age.<br><br><br><br>

But keep trying anyway. They don't live in a bubble; they can influence other family and friends. I'm sad that your mother doesn't seem open to new information.<br>
I'm puzzled that your intact grandfather thinks circ. is necessary. Do you know why? Has he suffered from medical prejudice, like so many other intact men in this country?

What a nasty thing to say about a baby. You can tell your mom that my intact son is beautiful and not even close to nasty. I'm hoping you will have a son so your mom can see first hand how beautiful an intact baby boy is!!

as far as my grandpa I don't think anyone ever showed him how to care for himself. And also he has cancer (prostate (sp)) so I think he feels that it was some how caused by not being circed, incorrect information, but to him it could be the "reason". My mom doesnt mean to be rude, but it is pretty rude to me. I wished so bad both times I was pg. that I would have a boy just to show my family has normal it is- but I had girls and I am very happy with my girls.<br><br>
It is also weird because my mom never BF but she is pretty pro-bfing, however I think she would be to each their own type.... It just makes me pissed when she says "That is why you have girls" As if having respect for a boys rights is wrong or something- as if they dont cut up little girls all over this world....

Yeah, I can believe that. Many men of his generation were never taught proper hygiene. Blaming prostate cancer on the foreskin, however, is like a woman who was never taught how to wash her breasts blaming her breasts for breast cancer.
