Exactly. I've never even heard of guys comparing penises in the locker room, lol. 80% of the world's male population is intact anyways, and that percentage is climbing in the US.

I get your reasoning there, and i'm sorry he had to go through that,
but i personally still couldn't do it.

We both decided it was what was best for our son. My husband has known men who have had to get circumsized as adults for various reasons and how bad it was for them. That helped our decision to do it after birth

my husband convinced me.. he was circumsized 29 years ago so i think it's much safer now than back then.. when we did take him i was crying like a baby but my son seemed to only be bothered by the hand and leg straps once they took those off he didn't cry anymore. He was also almost 11lbs so pretty strong baby they almost told me no..



I do know woman that have turned men down for being uncut and making fun of them.. my husband said you don't have a p***s so you don't know what it will be like for him if we don't do it so i said ok to it.

My thing is, if its so bad for them as adults, why put them through the exact same thing as a newborn? Babies can't say "ouch, this hurts, can I have some more pain medication?" And adult men don't have their new circumcision sitting in a pee/poop diaper.

I can research until my fingers are black and blue from typing and clicking, but I have absolutely no idea what it's like to actually have a p***s. We had this discussion before we knew DD was actually a her. I trust my husbands judgement when it comes to this subject.

I don't feel to strongly about either one of the options. I personally would not, but my husband wants it done. I think he should get to choose, mainly because it is something he feels is in the best interest of OUR child. I don't believe I should get to make every decision, or that my say should be the final say. It's his kid too, he should have say so on things too. There are certain things he doesn't necessarily agree with that he has let me decide if we couldn't come to an agreement. I'll pick my battles with him later on on topics I feel stronger about but over all with anything involving our child I think we should both come to a mutual agreement.

See, i feel VERY strongly about things being cut off of my child's body. It's just something i'd never compromise on.

Me either. That's the ONE thing that pissed me off about it. I may not be a dude, but I can bet they aren't running around comparing dicks...

Adult men also have to deal with ripping stitches and opening wounds if they get "excited". It's really back and forth. We just made sure he got Tylenol if he seemed unhappy or uncomfortable and that his diaper was changed as soon as he went
