Wow-lots to say. First-Silverfae-Where did you get your idea about breastfeeding and circ's? Just curious...sounds like crap to me, and as a nurse and a mom with 2 boys both circ'd who ate very well-I would question it.
I would love to see the research.
Northern Mama-there is scientific evidence that what Allison says is true. I can tell you that there was really not a question when my boys were born-dad was, everyone we knew was, as well as all the boy babies we knew at the time, 30 yrs ago. There is now evidence that there is an increase in cervical cancer in women whose partners and "un's".
I will also say-as a nurse who worked at the male dominated VA for YEARS, there are very few men who, IMO would electively AS ADULTS, get circed. It was always my observation, and frankly was a standing joke with many of my nursing peers, that you can pretty much do anything above the waste to a man. Get below the waste-whole 'nother story. They recover faster from open heart surgery than something below the waste. Seriously. Think about the men you all know. Bowels and balls. That is seemingly the center of the universe.
I also would say, which may be TMI for some, that if there is less sensation in an uncirced penis, which may make sense, I think it would make premature ejaculation epidemic proportions on uncirc'd men!
Just another "observation".
As for the OP-she has said it isn't really open for discussion in her mind. She posted this thread really for support in dealing with her sister, and yet we are still arguing the point, which is no better than the sister. Perhaps we need a whole "uncola" thread in the saloon.
OP-stand your ground. THis is one of many things others may not agree with in your marriage, parenting and life. But-it is not their business. Period. Be supportive or shut the up.
