This may be more of a plea than a debate so feel free to ignore but I feel the need to write it.

Rose...

I have replied to your Rugby post now!

"I see some vicious debates happening about circumcision."

Debate on circumcision is dying its deserved death now, I'm glad to say. Though of course I agree with you wholeheartedly that any debate on the subject should be met with total understanding of those parents who choose to circumcise their boys in love for them, believing it is a valid choice. I have said as much many times on this board and others since I was circumcised in 2002.

If you haven't done so already, please take a look at the following thread which will explain my intention for this board's replacement in an effort to address and quantify the current outlook on RIC in America today. It's a lengthy thread, but will bring you up to date. With Jen's support (our CM), I am now awaiting a decision from iVillage's powers-that-be, which is inevitably taking a long time. I would greatly welcome your support if you agree with my purpose and endeavour, Rose.

By the way, your expanding family, unique and filled with love, is a wonderful expression of human experience for good in our world. It deserves a BBC documentary programme, Rose!

Rose.... before I respond to your post, please tell me you are the good friend I know, but now with a different username? I think you must be. :smileyhappy:
