Maybe people were made fun when he was in school (or maybe he made fun of others?). I don't know what the circumcision rate is where you live, but it's about 30% around here (so 70% are NOT circumcised). I don't think anyone will be made fun of here, though in the future, if this trend continues, then it may be the boys that are circumcised that are made fun of.



Can you ask your doctor if he knows the local rates? If it is about 50% of baby boys then that might make your husband feel better.



....hmm, I just did an internet search and according to Wikipedia, in 2008, 73% of males were circumcised, I'm sure you'll want to find something more reliable though :). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prevalence_of_circumcision



Oh, and my husband wanted to get it done, until our midwives brought it up and told him that it is no longer covered by our provincial health care plan, so we'd have to pay for it (and it is just a cosmetic procedure). I'm not sure if he felt strongly about it before then, we had only briefly talked about it, he knew I was against it for our children.

I think the reason of him being cut because DH is, is just as ridiculous as the "he'll be made fun of in the locker room" excuse.

How often do people's kids see their dad's p***s to realize that they're "different"?

Exactly my point, though, they don't care enough to inspect it or anything. :lol:



My boys are uncut and my husband is cut and all Jack [my older] cares to say about the matter is that "Daddy has a doooooooooooooooodle! Jack has a dooooooooodle! Mama has YUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKK!!"



LMAO :lol:

That ought to be useful, especially the article The Vulnerability of Men by Vincent Bach. It's so weird how circumcised men are so bent on having the same thing done to their sons, for no real reason at all.
