    My two are complete, I wouldn't do it to my daughter so why would I do it to my sons, I wouldn't...just my two cents

    The main risk factor for a boy to be routinely circumcised in Australia today is the circumcision status of the father, since the sons of intact fathers are virtually never circumcised.

    No, but I don't have a problem with parents that choose to. DP is done so I gave him the choice to get DS done or not, he decided not. There are 5 boys in our mums group, I know that 2 have been circ'd.

    All of my children will remain intact unless there is some obscure medical reason to remove a perfectly normal, functional peice of their body.

    Ahh ok.

    Spideysmum: no need to apologise. I was just curious as to why it's always mentioned.
