Interesting read from a circ'd man's perspective:
I must admit that I probably only thought about the subject of circumcision three times before becoming a father. When looking back on it, I’m in disbelief that I would ever accept the reasons for my own circumcision and others.
When my mother said that little boys should look like their fathers and brothers; it hurt. Although, it doesn’t bother my son in the slightest, it does remind me that I am not whole. It’s hard to ignore the scar.
However, I’m going to make the best of it. I refuse to change my youngest son to look like me; I have chosen to look like him, instead. I have decided to restore my foreskin, and encourage other circumcised fathers to do the same. Hopefully one day, ALL fathers and sons can be happy and whole together.
