    I don't agree with RIC for any future sons, but some parents do believe that circ is medically beneficial.

    People are allowed to pick at a practice. Especially one that removes a babies body part without their permission for no genuine medical reason.

    That doesn't make it bullying.

    If people were saying 'did you see what **** was saying about *****, she's an awful person for doing that'. Then it'd be bullying. .

    But the same could be said the other way, no? if it offends you, don't go in the pro circ section?

    I hope people in this thread don't stoop to the same level. The frustration and anger I have is at the Doctors who advocate for and perform this procedure, not those parents who choose it. I just heartily wish it wasn't available.
    I think they called those words bc they do go into the pro circ section, throw around the M word and make a whole lot of judgements in a section that is clearly listed as pro circ and those words are clearly said to be against the rules.

    Look I really could care less what people choose to do. I don't think uncirced means smelly/dirty nor do I think those that circ are uneducated/child abusers. I don't have an issue with being anti RIC but I do think those that circ really cop it and aren't allowed to even have their own space in the pro circ section. Then the judgements are taken in here and people are told basically, get over it, it's the anti circ section... which seems kind of hypocritical.

    Anyway, I said I wouldn't post again I just wanted people to reply to this thread for the right reasons, not for it to become a protected witch hunt

    I'm in this predicament as well. Sadly, I wouldn't come here for support because of posts like this:

    And unless parents are prepared to watch it being done, they have no business having it done.
    I have the balls and I do stand up for my son. I debate circumcision regularly, with my DH and the many other members or my family who are pro circ. However, my DS is just as much DH's son as he is mine.As you all know pro circers are just as passionate about the subject as anti circers. All believe they are right. It is a really difficult situation to be in. If I post in this section I get told to grow some balls (ironic!!) if I post in the pro circ section I get bombarded with biased information. So I think I'll just stick with google!!

    I think an anti-ric support thread is great, but the wording in the OP certainly didn't match the title. Maybe 'Vent thread for anti-circ' would have been more appropriate.

    Is it really that wrong to want to have a place to vent, there are things written in the pro circ section that we can't comment on in there, why not be able to come in here and comment on it?

    I think the whole excuse of his dad is done so he will be done is the worst excuse in the world but I can't comment on it in the other section.

    The op in this thread started this right after bombarding the pro thread. That to me screams b*tchiness and the fact this thread was not started with the intention of supporting.
