Another thing to be thankful for….

…the fact that I was born decades before this madness started. But then as far as I know it’s always been an issue to an extent. Believe it or not, I honestly thought it was standard medical procedure with boys. I remember the first time I was asked about it. My answer: “Well yeah, isn’t everybody?” I am quite glad that was the case, too…because if I had not been, that first time might well have been with someone else, and it wouldn’t have been the beautiful spiritual and physical experience that it turned out to be. Of that I am certain…

    I actually knew two guys who had to have it done while in their teens for medical reasons; it is a LOT easier on a baby’s little dick than on a teen boy’s.

    This is one of those areas where I wish the people who agree with me would just shut the hell up.

    I researched the issue before having kids, and my husband & I agreed that if we had any boys they would not be circumcised. The decision was made based upon research into the risks/benefits of it as a medical procedure, among other things.

    All that said…there are some freaking weirdos out there. It ranges from the whole “retraction is a sacred thing that should only occur during sex” to men attempting to restore their foreskins, the accomplishment of which I shall leave to your imagination. On the one hand, it’s barking moonbat territory. On the other, I’m not certain it’s any worse than “Well, I want him to look like his dad.”

    There are indeed some weirdos out there; I knew about some of that but I still am by no means an expert. So I can’t really have an opinion on it one way or the other. Finding out about the attempts at restoration, though, was a Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot moment if ever there was one. If people want or don’t want to do it more power to them. Honestly, though, I am quite glad that I was.

    My father had it done in his 20s for medical reasons in the 1940s.( He worked at the time in a hot dirty field and couldn’t keep it clean, thus infections.) He has had three heart attacks and a 5x by-pass. He still says it was the worst medical procedure he has ever been through. That said, he still says he is glad he had it done and when my son was born, insisted we have it done.

    And THAT is saying a lot. I am really, really glad I had it done now. I am sure it does get more involved the longer one waits.
