OK so some of you may or may not know, I am 24 weeks pregnant with my first, who happens to be a boy.... Getting him circumcised was a no brainer as My husband is (tmi sorry),and he wants his son to be as well ( that's the main reason)... Plus I have researched it (for and against), and its just my own personal preferance for various other reasons to have it done.
Now my sister on the other hand has gotten pretty hot over this issue just got off the phone with her actually) and says that I am "cowardly, insane, and un-imformed" . And that I will be mutilating my sons genitals... I have NOTHING against people who choose not to circumcise their boys, and wouldn't dare to argue that they should.
ITS PERSONAL PREFERENCE IN MY BOOK. She is still trying to work her view into me even though I told her I am NOT unimformed I just have differing views, and its pissing me off, like almost to the point of telling her to not bother coming out (she lives in cali) for the birth. I said to her "I don't expect you to support me having it done, but you need to respect my descision to do so and not harrassme on it"... haha yeaaah right
Mind you she isnt a mother, and never intends to be- And she claims that circing will hurt the mother child bond..
But Im wondering for you mothers out there, when the hell did this become a debate?? I have yet to meet a man that has felt wronged about being circumcised (i wil just ask male friends and co workers)...No lasting phsycological effects and what not... To me it seems to be more women yelling about it...
And those of you who have had it done to your sons, did you have any mother/child bonding loss because of it??? Because it seems to me that bonding would be more effected by all the sh!t they do to you and baby in hospital... not the circ itself.... so IM really interested to know your thoughts.
And lastly what would you do in my situation? Thanks!
