Quoting LittleBear's mama:" Finally...someone is making sense. Those that choose to circ dont tend to shame others who choose to leave their boys intact, and yet the same cannot be said for the other side of the coin...hmmmmm..."


Not true. As I've said, I've been told a number of times by people that my son will be made fun of, that due to the choice I made he's going to never be able to find a gf/or wife, that he'd dirty, that he'll get HIV. There is shame going both ways.



This site tends more towards the anti-circ fanatics, no doubt, but that doesn't mean it's like that everywhere. Every parent my age that I actually know chose to circ, and many have said very nasty things about it.



There are fanatics on both side. This side isn't the entire world, you know?

I am speaking from my opinion and experiences. No high horse here. I have not shamed anyone for their choice...either which way.

True there are fanatics on both sides. And just because someone chooses to circ doesnt mean that they are anti-intact either. To each their own

I literally said "Idk I don't circ my kids" so no I have never been around a circd baby right after he's been circd BUT I have had plenty of cuts and scrapes and they hurt for days, sometimes even more.
And it's a damn BABY. They all cry. There's no way to tell if a newborn is in pain or not.
My son was allergic to cows milk proteins when he was a baby. Before we figured it out he used to cry and cry but the b**b always shut him up. It comforted him from the pain and obviously he couldn't cry if he was sucking on my b**bs.
My point is, it would be very easily mistaken as hunger cries or dirty diaper cries when they are that young. I cannot and will not believe that they are in no pain while healing.

Exactly this!



It confuses me because you usually hear people say that they'd rather "get it over with" when the child is young -- mostly because of the pain. You think a grown man would be in a lot of pain, but a baby wouldn't? ESPECIALLY since a grown man can take medicine for the pain. On top of the fact that when a GROWN MAN is circumcised, the foreskin is simply removed; when a BABY is circumcised, his foreskin is literally RIPPED from the glands because his foreskin has not retracted yet.



You will never be able to convince me that a grown man would be in an intense amount of pain but a baby won't/isn't.

Or that somehow an infant can "handle" it better. Ugh.

Idk about pain in grown men vs infants but my husband was circumcised at home by my uncle in Iraq when he was 9 years old with no medicine and he says it only hurt for like a day. For real I just asked him. My brothers were circumcised the same way by the same uncle in Iraq but I'm not gonna ask them about it lol.

I don't really get shit for it anymore, but for a few months, my parents were critical about the boys not being cut. My boyfriend got a little butthurt over it, but his family never said a word that I know of.
I was so glad when they all stopped bringing it up. It was annoying.
