Born Intact, Circumcised Against My Will At 12 Years OldWhen I was 12 became ill with an infected Appendix. My mother requested that I be circumcised when under anesthesia for the Appendix removal. They circumcised me and botched the job. Part of my glans was severed and they had to call in a Urologist to re-attach it.
The re-attachment of my glans didn't heal well. When I was 14 I had to go in for another operation to correct the problem and remove some scar tissue. To this day I have only very slight sensation in my glans. It has affected my personal life with relationships with women.
As you might expect I was very, very angry with my Mother. At first she was not concerned and brushed off my anger, that was until she saw the damage that was done. She felt guilty and even more so after I have to go back in under the knife when I was 14. At that point I stopped speaking to her.
My Father was beyond angry. They had divorced when I was 11. I asked my Father if I could move in with him, he more or less demanded it from my Mother.
For some sick a twisted reason, my 16 year old sister thought my mangled manhood was funny. I haven't spoken to her in 10 years and have no plans to do so in the future.
For any parent considering circumcision, DON'T DO IT. You will be cutting off a part of your son's penis that serves a vital function in protection of the glans and your son's future sexual life.
Female circumcision is seen as barbaric mutilation. Male circumcision is the same, a barbarous mutilation for aesthetics or health benefits which have been proven to be questionable at best and outright lies at the worst.
