      I don't have any boys, but some friends just had one.

      Instead of cutting the doctor put a little plastic ring around the kids penis that cut off blood supply to the foreskin. It fell off within two weeks and does not need to be tended much.

      I don't remember having it done. And I am glad I did.

      Interesting thing is a number of men are now attempting to "regrow" the removed skin !! True, google it and you'll find out !!

      ^^^^ as per the 28 year old who tore his foreskin during sex!!!! I'm telling you right now, he did not damage his foreskin putting it into a vagina! I don't know what that boy is putting his penis into....but it's not a (human) female vagina.

      Who cares .

      I do find it hilarious and extremely stupid to compare male circumcision to female .....

      That truly shows the ignorance of that person.

      There not anything close to the same.

      I would worry more what you feed your kids than this.

      Anybody mention yet that being cut greatly reduces the chances of some STDs? http://health.usnews.com/health-news...s-against-stds

      For my own son, I didn't want him to be circumcised since I wasn't. My wife had all intentions for it to happen, but my son had low platlette's levels after being born so doctors didn't want to do any sort of circumcision because of this. I was more worried if he was ok, he seemed fine it's just his platelettes where low, but glad he didn't get circumcised. I have nothing againts it's just that I wanted my son to be like me. I never knew that some people got ridiculed about not being circumcised until later in life when I was an adult. Just make sure you teach your child to pull back and clean it really well, since it won't clean itself in the shower.

      So do condoms and abstinence.

      I don't think that's a good argument for circumcision in our society.

      I have a two month old son now and we didn't do it. Couldn't see a reason for it either way. To be honest I got sick of all the people preaching on either side and really non of it made sense medically. My aunt and cousin actually cried with joy when they found out we didn't have it done...I debated the subject a few months before he was born. Basically I was a little drunk and stirring the pot by continually saying that "it's just a little skin...who cares? I don't care. It's as barbaric as ear piercings or cutting fingernails. You are women and shouldn't have a say in this!"

      Anyways, to each his own, not her own.

      This^^...When we had our son, my wife left it up to me...like father, like son, so we had it done when he was a few days old. It looked painful, but he didn't seem bothered. It healed up quickly. There are good points on either side, but why do people have to take up torches on their side of the argument? Stay out of my life, I'll stay out of yours.

      Here in Ontario, our health care system used to pay for this, as part of our basic healthcare. Not sure when it changed, but now, if you can't cough up the ~ $300, you can't get it done. Which makes the decision easier for many parents...
