The topic of circumcision is an interesting one because it brings up quite a bit of outrage. I’m happy to continue to discuss both sides, but the truth of the matter is that I don’t take circumcision that seriously in my personal life.
I have a few reasons I stand by for why my husband and I chose circumcision for our sons. The thing is, foreskin definitely isn’t going to grow back, and I am fully confident in the choice we made.
I don’t feel that anyone should judge my family’s decision to circumcise our children, and I have zero problems with another family’s choice not to circumcise their sons. And since I don’t feel that this is an end-of-the-world topic, I’m going to continue to make wisecracks about the tip snip.
In the midst of all the chaos of the circumcision debate, I was able to have a great, respectful conversation with an anti-circumcision organization. I was really impressed by The Whole Network, a group dedicated to providing accurate circumcision information, based on a conversation we had on Twitter.
From The Whole Network:
www.WHOLEnetwork.org is a grassroots, 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity dedicated to providing accurate information about circumcision and proper intact care. We supply doctors, hospitals, midwives, educators, and parents-to-be with well-researched, up-to-date information.
Good news for any parents who still have legitimate questions about circumcision””Larissa Black is here to answer them on a live Facebook chat tomorrow from 11 AM to 12 PM ET (April 17). This is the perfect time to get your circumcision questions answered and find out more about the anti-circumcision side of the coin.
I support any family’s right to circumcise their child as I believe it is a personal decision, one that my family is still comfortable with today. I also support any family’s right not to circumcise their child for the exact same line of reasoning.
So, let’s get down to the foreskin of the matter. Stick with us and jump into the Facebook chat tomorrow to pick The Whole Network’s brain about the pros and cons of circumcision.
