So, a friend on facebook recently posted something detailing the "horrors" of circumsizing infant boys. Personally, my son is not circumsized and I think the decision is up to the parents. In a comment on this post, someone compared circumsizing male infants to female genital mutilation in Africa. When I said I thought that was going overboard and alittle nuts, I got jumped on by a bunch of people saying that they are equally horrible things and I'm just so wrong. Then, the chick went so far as to tell me that I should I need to let my son choose for himself. Not thoughtfully suggest that, but TELL ME TO do it.
Am I nuts here? Did I miss the boat or something? When did circumsizing baby boys become the equivilant of the graphic horrors that girls go through in gentital mutiliation in Africa? Have I completely lost my mind? What is wrong with people?
