Question About Circumcision for Kids in the Philippines

56 posts in this topic

My older boy here in the USA is not circumcised and he has thanked me for not having that done to him.   But now i have a Phil-Am kid (7 months) and my asawa is nagging me about getting that done.   There is a 50/50 chance that i will retire in Phils one day and she says that if he is in school there that other kids will pick on him.   My attitude is 'f them' he can just kick their asses if they tease him.  But maybe i am being hard-headed?   

 

Thoughts?

Why anyone would want to disfigure a beautiful, natural baby is beyond me.

 

It's a disgraceful practice, attacking a child who gets no say in this vicious assault. Wait until the kid can decide for himself if he wants to have his manhood altered because of some old fashioned and outdated 'culture'.

 

Nobody in their right mind would support Female Genital Mutilation, and yet for some reason, Male Genital Mutilation, also known as circumcision, is not condemned.

My point exactly,  it's a completely non necessary surgery

Unnecessary and, frankly, barbaric. It is a physical assault on a defenceless, perfectly formed child, with a weapon.

My only input will be that having to undergo an emergency surgery circumcision as an adult - torn Frenulum - can be extremely painful and potentially life threatening.

Having also done as an adult it really makes no difference. Do it or don't. I will say my partner prefers it now which does have its benefits.

My two boys went and had it done when they were ~11-12 (when they lived in the philippines). It was their decision.

They are too young to make a decision like that. Especially with all the peer pressure they will have received.

 

It is unnecessary mutilation. The people who performed it should be charged with child abuse.

our doctor told my wife ; it's better because kids will peer pressure him''

 

i told my wife , no flucky way, what a bulshit argument that is.!!

 

 

 

I agree with all Skywalker says!!

 

for the Poster, Tell your wife, NO WAY!, in this case YOU should show who's boss!!

my wife is very open minded, and she understand,

 

and you might have to try reasonable arguments and kiddy style explanation to convince her..
