I look at it like this, Would you wax your daughters eye brows at birth or even 2-3 because it "looked better"? Of course not!!! Why cut the skin when it is nt medically necessary!!!!! I did not and I would not circumcise my son unless it became medically necessary!

I personally think circumcision is unethical and would never do it.

I don't get how the removal of body hair is anything close to circumcising lol

I think her point is that circumcision is a cosmetic procedure (excluding those who do it for religious purposes, obviously), as is waxing to remove body hair....maybe....

Its still an apples to oranges type of comparison IMO. I get what your saying though

Waxing is completely different than removing skin. That would be like why cut your child's hair to make them look better?!
Why use photoshop when you are trying to encourage your child to have good self esteem?
Why eat candy when you can eat fruit?

My husband is from Mexico where there are no doctors for miles near his house and no money to afford it. Obviously he knows how to take care of himself and all of that but with our son, he asked my dad his opinion (there's 12 of us) and my dad obviously has experience. He said "Get it. No question. My father had to get circumcised at 56 because he didn't clean it and got an infection." So we did.
I DO NOT REGRET IT AT ALL. Now he doesn't have to stress about not cleaning (one day without cleaning an uncirced p***s and it smells horrendous and has all types of stuff going on) and worrying about infections.
My sons circ took one week to heal (I highly recommend A&D) and i now have less stress about teaching him to clean and maintain.
YOUR kids and YOUR choice. If another mother wants to bash you tell her where to shove her opinion.

Id tell them to f**k off. i was converted to judaism just before my son was born so circumcision wasnt a question and my husban went with t even tho he isnt circumcised and atheist. when i posted about my sons Bris Milah (the Jewish ceremony for circumcision and his Naming) i mostly got congrats and stuff but omg i had one or two that bashed me. ben didnt cry for some reason. they numbed him.before hand and right after was handed to me fir comfort. he didnt cry at all. he fussed a tad. but no screams. its ur decision and its no ones place to tell u what u decode anyways. not like ur son or mibe will remember it.

I don't think you should discuss it with other people online if you don't want to hear their opinion. I don't think they should "bash" you at all, but I don't get the point of even replying to someone's fb post about that lol. But I wouldn't circumcise if I had a son, it's your legal choice to do so though.

Actually it is cleaner (if you shower obviously) but if you do not retract the skin back to clean EVERY time you shower, it gets pretty nasty and a breeding ground for bacteria and infections. My husband explained that nastiness of it (when he was younger...no one explained the necessity for an everyday shower). I personally like an uncirc'd p***s and i did not get my son circumcized because it "looks" better. I asked someone who has experience on the subject and the fact that he could possibly have to get it done when he's older (like in his fifties like my grandpa) because he couldn't keep it cleaned didn't really thrill me.
my personal choice but please don't assume I had the procedure done so my son could have a pretty peepee.
your kiddos your choice (:

In response to the OP i think the fundamental difference is that i believe it is the child's decision whether they permanently remove a functioning part of their body and it's not the adults place to risk the child's life by putting them through mostly irreversible cosmetic surgery. I'm glad most places believe this and that there are laws to enforce it.
