No, but they are going to be soon
I can't vote atm, but just wanted to
Subscribe to the thread my 16 year old is circ'd, but I also have a 4yo and a 1yo who are intact
My DS isn't, but neither of us have strong opinions either way.
Of the 6 boys in my DW's mothers group, only 1 is circed.
I find the results interesting! 75% uncirc'd vs 25% circ'd or about to be.
I am strongly anti-circ and DS isn't circ'd, but the town I live in has a very high rate of circumcision (it's a very small town).
In my mother's group it was about 50/50. In DS's swim class (the kids run around nakey afterwards!) DS and one other are the only ones intact out of 8, so a reverse on the statistics from this poll.
Although I am anti-circ, I think if a parent has done the research, read the case for both sides and decides that circ'ing is right for them, then that is good parenting. All of my friends with young sons have circ'd them but I don't think they are bad parents for it.
On another note I am so sad that the Drs here seem to want to cut boys for no good reason, I have heard so many times that the foreskin is too tight on young boys, it is suppose to be, it loosens as they use it (sex) it only needs to be loose for the head to come out while having sex, whose young boy is going to need that feature non I wish drs would leave these poor boys alone and let the penis do its thing naturally.
