oh my gosh no u are not crazy there is nothing wrong with not circumsizing we are having a girl but if we were having a boy we decided that because mexicans do not get circumsized we wouldnt do it ( my hubby is mexican) it is no differnt as long as you teach him how to take care of it. if you dont take care of it then yes it could be bad but my husband isnt and I have no issue with it it does look differnt but no one will know till he starts haveing sex wich is for ever away lol if i was having a boy and he was full white i still wouldnt do it i think its terrible to do that to a little baby

I'm pretty much paper white....I figured our son would come out with Dark curly hair and brown eyes, olive skin ya know....He came out red blonde hair, green hazel eyes and white skin...he's a darker white than me but still I was like whaaaaa!? Where did that come from?! But apparently my fiance has a lot of Spanish in him so yep :]

You're not crazy. This is the EXACT reason I'm praying for a girl. If we find out on Monday that it's a boy, I have a feeling that my honey and I will start arguing over this again.



I am dead against it, he says it should be done. There's no medical benefit to it until he's older, so I'd love to let HIM make the decision on whether or not to chop HIS own junk. It's his junk, his choice. My honey says it's best to do it at or shortly after birth so he "won't remember". Obviously, it's quite painful.



Why is it that they only get pain medication when they're older and parents have to REQUEST it when they're born?? I feel circumcision is genital mutilation, no matter the reason. If the child wants it later, then I'm ok with it. His/her body, his/her rules.



However, if you don't circumcise, there's an increased risk for a few infections that can turn life-threatening.



If I decide to circumcise a boy, I expect him to be given a good dose of pain relief and wait for it to set in before circumcising.



BUT, it's not my kid, so my belief doesn't really matter. On my kid, I make the decisions and Honey simply nods his head...except for this topic.

My grandparents from my dads side are from Mexico and I have family from Mexico on my moms side and it seems normal in our family to circumcise O.o So I think it's an all around thing lol



I don't think your crazy at all. If you feel you don't want your son to be circumcised then don't if you feel those websites you've read are right then that is your choice. To each their own. You and your husband just have to come to some sort of understanding though cause your guys' time is running out lol

there is no risk of cancer or bad things happening to the boy if they are not circumsized it is a cosmetic sergery if u teach him how to clean it it will not get gross just liek our vaginas they can get infected if we dont keep clean and dont wipe corectly he just needs to make sure he cleans under the skin so tht it doesnt stink or urine and sperm doesnt stay in ther.
