I tend to learn things that i think are totally normal are taboo simply by reading these boards. I think im pretty "normal". I am 33 weeks (nearly) pregnant with my second child, my first boy. When i was pregnant with my daughter i learned from these boards that i had broken rules by eating feta, drinking caffeine, eating tuna etc. My daughter turned out fine so i'm pretty much doing all those things again. After my daughter was born, i found out that there was a taboo about vaccinations. I just assumed you have a kid you vaccinate it. I'm always surprised to find there are debates on issues i thought were cut and dried.
I have no strong feelings regarding circumcision really simply because i didnt know that it was something to feel strongly about. Religiously its something that is just done. My husband is circumcised, as are all the men i know. I didnt really read through many of the posts because they've gotten long or off topic. Why wouldnt you circumcise your child? I dont know anyone who's harmed by it... and like i said its a religious custom. I suppose I'm confused? without getting totally hyped up, can someone explain to me what im missing?
