Quoting Jacob's Mummy!:" I know if i was a guy i wouldn't want to have it done as a adult because by then it is a massive surgery ... [snip!] ... his own child. Who are we to judge when we have no idea ourselves, obviously by not having a penis. It truly is silly to me!!"
I replied to someone else, and this really isn't a debate thread, but I would be happy to respond to what you had to say.
Having part of your genitals removed by surgery is going to be uncomfortable at any age. As an adult they can actually use the proper amount of anesthesia without worrying about overdosing a tiny person.
I also don't have a problem with circumcision, I just disagree with the practice of infant circumcision. I disagree with it for many reasons but I won't get into that since you didn't ask. The argument I least understand about having it done is letting the father choose because "he is the one with the penis". That is truly flawed logic if you stop to think about it. Just because they both have a penis doesn't mean that the man should make all boy related parenting decisions. Having a penis also does not mean that a man knows anything about circumcision or being intact. The extent of their knowledge is usually which one applies to his own penis and what he's heard from other people.
Researching an issue is how you learn about it whether you are a man or a woman. There are male OB's that know more about a woman's body then some women know. They don't have the anatomy but they read and learned. Saying that you shouldn't have input because you're a woman is
silly of you. You are the child's mother. Of course you should participate in making an informed parenting decision, especially about important issues.
