I'm just feeling down about how common circumcision is. I go to a local playgroup and I suspect my son is the only intact one there. I really like this group, I need the friendships, I need to meet other moms. I'm an introvert so I don't make friends easily without planned meetings. So I know circ is really common here in WI, so it doesn't surprise me to know that most boys I know are probably circ'ed, but I'm still sad. Over the last few months, I keep witnessing diaper changes, and one by one, I've been able to see that all the boys are circumcised. WTF? ALL OF THEM?: Don't their moms know how mutilated and amputated their son's penises look? All these moms seem so cool - most BFed for at least a few months or longer, some are cloth diapering, some babywear, etc.
I'm proud of my son (and his soon-to-be little bro) being intact, I'm not having second thoughts or regrets or anything like that. I'm just disappointed in humanity I guess.: I'm proud that my son seems to have the most tolerance for pain and is the most emotionally stable of all the boys. I have to believe that circumcision must damage a child's ability to handle stress.
