It's hardly plastic surgery. You may think certain procedures aren't necessary or in the best interest of your children but others may have different views and you should show some respect.
You were quick to quote my post. I edited while you were typing. It's not plastic surgery, it's cosmetic. To surgically alter a child for a percieved benefit or to prevent a condition that may never occur cannot be classified as anything else. I do not and will not ever respect the views of anyone in regards to surgically altering an infant for cosmetic/cultural/religious purposes. That does not mean I do not respect those who do it as people, but their views on this one issue disgust me. I also do not need someone telling me to show some respect for something that is horrific.

if you circumcise your daughter in Australia, it is done at home. people also will use the same ceremonies at home for sons.
Usually they go 'home' and have it done within their culture (where is is legal)
