Just wondering on how moms deal with other peoples reactions when you tell them you did not have your son circumcised. I did plenty of research before making my decision and found that it was best to not have the procedure done.
Since I've had my son and I've run into some friends and family members, whenever the topic gets brought up, it seems like I get so much shit for it. The funny thing is, I have yet to meet someone who knows what they are talking about. For instance, yesterday, a friend tried to tell me the reason that "circumcision was started so that sex would be more pleasurable for a woman." What?!?!?! I could not stop laughing but he was convinced, then continued to tell me how sorry he feels for my son.
All I have tried to do is tell people that I've thoroughly investigated the options and give them a few facts. Still, I get the dirty looks and extremely rude comments. (I really don't know why people are so concerned with my sons penis in the first place)
