For me, I think I lean toward anti-circ... But I need to do more reading on the subject. And I don't judge others for making this choice, as I said I haven't had to make it, and I may feel differently if/when I have a DS Hence my interest in the topic.

Like I said, I'm 100% comfortable with discussing my reasons but I hasten a guess as to why others have responded like they have 1)there are lots of these threads around so people may not see the point of repeating themselves 2)they may feel every thread started by an anti circer in the pro circ section isn't really created as an attempt to understand but rather to create a thread where they can rebut other people's reasons and argue, which isn't what this section is for... and this has happened lots in the past.
So I'm thinking the responses are maybe a polite way of saying - sick of being asked and it's actually none of your business what others personal reasons are, particularly when you are anti circ so have already made your mind up.
I have just woke up from a nanna nap lol so not sure if that made any sense...

I have just deleted a few off topic posts. If you want to explore the relevance of activist sites (both pro- and anit-circ) vs medical advice, that seems best done in a new thread in the discuss it section. I will reopen this thread now for those who have circed and are willing to share the reasons behind their decision.

I guess I'll explain again. We circ'd because we think it is cleaner and healthier. I have a couple of now adult friends who both had a pretty bad time with their penii? They no longer have their 'beanies', and are both very happy with the improvement that it has made.
It's a little weird how similar their two stories are. Both in pain for years and sort of thinking it was normal.
I think they were a little embarrassed telling someone about it, which is why it caused them so much grief for so many years.
Anyway, those personal stories was enough for us. We are glad that we have done as much as we can to protect our children from possible pain and embarrassment in the future.

Thank you to those of you that responded. I did not mean to cause offense or alarm or bore anyone by asking the same question. TBH I haven't visited the circ-section before and was unaware that the question has been asked a squillion times before. My apologies. Like I said, I'm not passing judgement. I would never "demand" an explanation from anyone, that's why I tried to ask respectfully of those who did not mind sharing. I have six sons. My husband isn't circumcised and I will admit that it probably was the "like father, like son" reason that we didn't research whether or not we should circumcise, perhaps, from some of your stories, to our future detriment. I wanted to see if this reason was a social trend and if it did have a major impact on the final decision of whether or not to circumcise. I see now that in most cases, the decision made was one of well-informed consideration. For those who feel they don't have to offer an explanation - I agree, you don't have to and I would never try to coerce one out of you. So, thanks again. If anyone else doesn't mind sharing with me, I appreciate your contribution too.
