    Default Circumcision increases risk of ASD

It's the emotive, almost hysterical language and rhetoric which constantly breaks the rules that annoys me. I actually find it manipulative and disingenuous.... and that's a general statement not directed to any one person.
    Sorry I edited my post so as not to offend. That's just the way I talk .... Talk about doing that to my hubby all the time. There was no emotion or ill intent meant. Certainly no hysterical-ness... at least from this side of the fence.

    Now now VP, you are the most upfront, no nonsense person on the forum. I never see you have emotive language except in this sub forum Don't get me wrong, I get you are passionate and it stirs you up. I have my own topics that get me like that.

    And thank you for editing. My eye can stop twitching now

    Ditto - a boy and a girl here both with ASD/ADHD/SPD - and all their are bits there. DH has ASD and I will put money on my dad being on the spectrum to. Its genetic. I personally think that the only other factor that increases "risk" is advanced maternal age. But thats just my opinion based on my own research and personal experience (before I get shot down for having an opinion)

    Geez I think I've heard everything now LMAO

    The drs that performed my ds's circ's were specilised in that field, they were trained to do it, they weren't just regular gp's. They were both specialists in neonatal paediatrics. The procedure can no longer be performed in public hospitals and when children are circ'd when they are older it is done in a theatre by a surgeon under GA so it is a load of b****** that any old dr can perform the procedure.

    It took me 8 years to get my Medical Degree.
    How much of those 8 years is spent studying the functions of the foreskin?

    Hopefully the situation is better than in the US. I know a doctor there who said they learn nothing about the foreskin in medical school. A lot of circs are still being done there without painkillers. Ob/gyns are the worst offenders, who are generally not trained in their use, so they don't use them.

    Every now and then a parent does a DIY circ over there. They often botch them, causing them to be charged (but not for circing).
