A thread to b!tch about other parents?
    I'm not b1tching about other parents. That also wasn't in the pro circ section either that I made that comment. I do find it infuriating that someone can actually stand there and say they can't watch a procedure that was done to their son by their choice because they couldn't bear to know what they'd put their son through.

    Vaccinating dd is something done by choice, that I see as beneficial, and I leave the building because I'm scared of needles. Should I stop vaccinating her?

    I am anti circ but i think needing support for that is plain stupid, call me un empathetic if you like but seriously why need support over being anti circ

    Sure if you are specifically getting grief over you decision not to then post that and fair enough but just as a general support thread come of it.

    What exactly are people needing support for

    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".
    Its not just about support.What's wrong with the anti-circers just wanting to have a chat? Get it off our chest here, in a thread reserved for the anti-circ, how ridiculous we think circ is. That way we don't have to feel the need to toot off as much at those who do circ.

    If the circ'ers can have threads where they can talk in peace and quiet about something others see as ridiculous, lets afford that same 'right' to the anti-circ..?

    I think the OP meant that she would like to express her feelings on the things said about circumcision with other anti-circers. Without doing it in a thread in which she knows it will not be permitted. The "support" thing was just a play on the title of the other thread, I think.

    Well if it's not about support then why call it a thread about support?
    (I think that's the only thing being questioned?)

    Well how about this: my family are RICers for religious reasons and I'm already hoping I have a girl so I don't have to deal with them when I don't circumcise my boy!

    Oh I can see how that would need support if you have a boy. O__O

    Exactly. There are so many instances where people need support with their anti-RIC stance.

    I've seen many mothers come in here feeling bullied and helpless about what's happening with their son's penis, by husbands, family members etc...

    Of course it's something people need support with.

    (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).
