Strictly Opinion

Before both of my sons were born, my wife and I discussed whether or not they would be circumcised. After much thought, we decided that they would be. I know that my brother and I were circumcised at birth, so we thought nothing of it. I guess that's why it was such an easy decision to make. Of course, not everyone in the real world may agree with this practice. To that I say to each their own, because in the end, the choice is solely up to the parents, and nobody else's. I'm not saying that it should be a requirement, or even a law. I'm simply saying that it's their choice either way.

Now I know that there are some people out there that will raise a big fuss about circumcisions, and the fact that we chose to have our boys circumcised,, so here's my response; find something better to do with your lives instead of telling me about how I should be living mine!!

Completely agree. I think you made the right decision for your boys. A lot of anti-circ people need to get a life, stop trying to run other people's lives, and stop worshiping a smelly pee funnel.

The phrase "smelly pee funnel" is very revealing of the snobbish disdain and misinformation that lies behind the American practice of routine infant circumcision.

I was circumcised at birth and I'm glad I was. I will also be circumcising my sons when I have children.

Circumcision is the best thing any parent can do for a new baby boy. Get him a tight one if possible.

Have you ever talked to a woman who's been in long term relationships with both kinds of men? I have.

Both you and your wife know how good a circumcised penis feels. There's health and hygiene but also the fact of never having to deal with a cumbersome and useless piece of skin during sex - it seems your choice was logical. I'm glad for your kids.

It's kind of interesting how the anti- people insist on advising and lecturing others on the evils of circumcision and how it is "violent" and "mutilation."<br />

I'm circumcised and if I have sons they will be also, but I'm not going to go around telling the anti- people they need to learn about all of the positives of circumcision and how they must get it done to their children.

Agreed. I believe boys should be circumcised, but I also believe it should be a matter of parental choice, and if anyone doesn't want their son snipped, that's fine with me. Don't have him circ'ed, but don't go after people who do have their son's foreskin removed with bullying, angry strident, language, name calling, and assuming a tone of preachy, moral superiority.

It should be the informed adult choice of the human being the foreskin is a part of.

"Preachy moral superiority" describes the reaction of the American people in the 1960s and 70s to whom I revealed that I retained all the factory installed moving parts.
