    Do you feel that way solely because you are in the minority? No-one is saying that people are bad parents for circumcising their sons.
    Not sure I'd call it tame. When people comment that circumcision is akin to mutilating a child it suggests they are a bad parent doesn't it?

    I honestly don't know how people can allow their boys to be circed. I would fight life and limb and they would of to pry my son from my arms there is no way I could physically let him go.
    The thought of it makes me physically ill.
    My poor mum is still horrified about the day my brother was circed thirty five years ago, she was so distraught they sedated her to take him and do it ;(

    I'm not really, really anti circ. I don't feel emotional about the subject or anything, but I just don't understand why you would? Why would you even bother? It seems to me to be like removing tonsils just in case you get tonsillitis one day. It just seems really strange to me.

    And when people use the excuse just in case they get UTI's or I think it is cleaner, it just sounds like a real non argument to me. It sounds like something you would say to make yourself feel better about it???? Or is that just me?

    I don't have anything against people who chose to circumcise their boys my sil got her boys done and talked to me like I was a piece of **** because I didn't want to go down the same road. A friend of mine had his circumcision at 6 yrs old without any drugs!!!!! And he is fine now lol he said it hurt like crazy but as we all know children can tolerate and handle a lot of things in their young lives.

    Hi thepouts,

    Our DS is 6 months old an he was circumcised at 5weeks old. He was not in pain and there were no tears. He healed extremely quickly. I'm not going to go into detail on this post as to why we had DS circumcised, but if you have any questions, feel free to pm me.

    Good luck with making your decision.

    I think you should do what you feel is right for your child, whatever that may be within reason!
