    I don't get why something that is a majority needs a support group?

    But why do you need support? you're in the majority and not made to feel like a scum bag for NOT having your child done... I don't get it.

    I don't have views either way... but after seeing some of the posts by anti-circ posters lately they already feel quite proud about themselves so I don't know why the need "support".

    Surely it's no ones job to decide who needs support and who doesn't... If someone feels like they would like some support then its no one else's business to judge if that feeling is warranted...

    I'm just really stuggling with the OPs intentions here.

    I read all circ threads because if we have a boy I want to be informed and go forward with a lot of advice/opinions. But when all I see in all circ'ing threads (even in the pro-circ area) is people sayign things like the below, I really don't see why they need a thread for support. To feel superior? A thread to b!tch about other parents?

    Well when someone in a pro circ thread says imagining what would get caught under a forsekin makes me sick or other ridiculous comments then people should be able to express their shock somewhere!

    Saying it nicely to those parents would be rather dandy though.
    (I haven't read the thread, just going off the comment that was quoted just above your post somewhere that seemed a little unhelpful to someone who may have said something uninformed in part of their pro circ decision).
