i also wanted to add this because it dawned on me driving home from class today: 3 of our adult male friends didn't know if they were circumcised or not. (they all are) but they had NO idea it was a procedure done on them as babies, they just thought that's how their penis was "supposed" to be. to me, that just goes to show that american's dont talk about it - or at least, they didn't. it was just some unspoken thing that that is how men look and that's how it's supposed to be.

A little late to this thread but to each their own. I had no idea about circumcision vs. intact.

My son is 2.9 years old now and is intact. IF baby is a boy, I will have to fight over it because baby's father is Circ'd and he thinks it should be done.

Anyhow, it shouldn't be a debate for anyone but for some reason it always is.
