I had to change a little boys nappy about 3 weeks after he was done it was the most painful thing for me I had to clean him up after he had a bowel motion (poo) apply cream to him his nappy and the whole time the poor little man was screaming in pain I ended up in tears. That day that nappy change changed my mind for me and the poor little guy wasn't even infected soi can't even imagine what that would be like.
    That is so sad

    Yep. Kids cry sometimes when they get their nappies changed. I hate it when they kick their legs in a tantrum and it ends up in their poo.
    I think as an early childhood teacher who changes an extra 20 odd nappies a day, as well as having a number of children of her own,Loonylea is quite capable of differentiating between a child throwing a tantrum whilst having their nappy changed, and one that is in a tremendous amount of pain.

    That's what I was thinking when I read that too!
    Neither of my boys were in pain when having their nappies changed in the weeks after their circumcision pooey nappies or not and certainly wasn't a horrid site seeing a nicely healed circ'd penis.

    The way I read it, it was the former, which happens to accord with how I feel about it as well.

    I don't know how to multi-quote btu I agree with this statement by Gothchick:
    " I feel extremely passionate about piercing babies ears, just as strongly as I do about circing. I'm not trivializing anything when I say I find them both the same, what I mean is I find them both absolutely (insert stuff I will probably get infracted for here). They should both be illegal imo."

    A friend of mine pierced her baby girl's ears when she was a couple of months old. It stressed me out every time I looked at the poor litle mite.

    Then her exact words were "it's absolutely no different to getting your daughter's ears pierced".
    They are similar in that are both injuries inflicted on the child. They are very different in that removing flesh is permanent while the hole in the ear is reversible. Also its a question of degree, a circumcision is more than 1,000 times more damaging than piercing an ear.

    For a medical person to say this in the original context is completely unprofessional and thoroughly dishonest. I would love to know their basis for that remark. However that remark serves several purposes. It serves to establish an air of authority. It serves to trivalize and thus support circumcision. If the person performs circs it helps them to remain in denial about the harm they are doing.

    I rank it with other silly statements sometimes said by crooked doctors such as:
    There are no nerves in the penis at that age.
    At that age its not really surgery.
    At that age they cannot feel anything.
    The plastibell doesn't involve any cutting.
    And many other lies some doctors seem to make up on the spot.
