Are you planning on circumcising your son or already have? What are your opinions on this? If you chose to circumcise your son what was your reason behind it?

PostSubject: Circumsized   Wed Feb 20, 2008 7:16 pm

I'm having a boy and I'm against having him circumsized unless there is a medical reason for it, well since I'm not jewish it's not my relgion. God put us on earth like that, if he did not want the skin to remain there he wouldn't have put it there, sure it means you have to be twice as careful and you have to clean under it but I don't want "Corey" to have an operation he doesn't need, besides that his dad would kill me. Hope everyone is well!

Love Em

I am doing it and I will explain why. May be valid and may not be but for the record I want you to all know that I am all about all natural and keeping what the good Lord gave us HOWEVER.....I had a boyfriend who was not circumcised and I will have to tell you now, it wasn't pretty and it wasn't exactly ummmm oral worthy! I don't want my sons to be left out later in life Smile I am sure some or MOST are very clean and well looked after but from that experience alone, has convinced me. My other: I certainly don't want my boys to look at their daddy "by chance" and wonder why theirs seems to be different. Maybe that excuse is lame and neither here nor there but none the less, it's how I feel. My little brother isn't circumcised either and wishes he was.

I have heard that it takes away from feeling and I am taking that into consideration and thinking about all the prospects.

I find it very interesting that many people stated "God gave him that, so we won't mess with it". There is a reason God put a foreskin on there, but I will not elaborate unless asked.

If I had a son, I would have him circumsized. The chances of cancers, infections, STDs goes down because there isn't skin there to help breed those bacterias. I am not Jewish, but I am a Christian and believe circumsision is cleaner and my hubby is circumsized. I've seen pics of uncircumsized persons and it's just NOT my thing!

Well as I have already stated, unless there is a medical reason, Corey shall remain whole. This is not just my wish but my partners as well. He is uncircumcised and he is prefectly healthy and happy! But it is up to the mother and the father in the end and I couldn't not have Corey circumcised without my partners approval. Plus no male in my family is circumcised and not one has a problem down there that I know of. But if a medical reason arises then yes, but until then no. It is also very hard to find a doctor that is will to preform a circumcision without there being something medically wrong here in Australia.

Love Em

PostSubject: Disclaimer: Christian view of circumsision, not meant to be an argument   Sat Feb 23, 2008 3:13 pm

In response to Autumn asking why! In the Bible the Gentiles (ungodly people) were uncircumsized. God required priests and for Godly men to become circumsized to "cut themselves off from the world". This was a part of the "Old Law" or Old Testament.

Also, not only did Jesus come to die for sin, but He came to set an example of holy living:
"And when eight days had passed, before His circumcision, His name was then called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb." Luke 2:21

1 Cor. 7:19 talks about circumsision being nothing. Meaning that if someone were to believe in God and he's uncircumsized, it doesn't matter. Basically, "Come as you are!" So if a parent decided to not circumsize at birth, as a man, he doesn't have to be as a "REQUIREMENT" of Christianity. It's a choice.

If Jesus Himself was circumsized, that alone is reason enough for me. I'm not trying to start a religious debate, just present the facts from a Christian point of view. So to circumsize or not is cool with me, but as a personal choice I'd circumsize.

So recap: Old Testament required it of Godly men because it was like a sacrifice and a requirement. But when Jesus came a new covenant (aka New Testament) was put in place when He died and rose again HE Himself was the blood offering and sacrifice and there no longer needs to be a circumcision. It becomes personal choice.

This is what I got from a quick study of it. I don't know if you're Christian or not, but there are some verses. This has definitely opened my eyes to see that it's not as big a deal as I previously thought. But if someone has more info on this, I'm interested!

i had wished i had gotten my boys done, there father wouldnt let me. i did my best at keeping it clean and pulled back, both still ended up haveing problems and still do. its hard to make a 7 yr old understand to make sure its pulled back and clean it when there finished pottying. i have went over it over and over and showed both my boys what to do, they get in a big hurry and never even think about it. i even dated a guy that didnt have it done and it was nothing but problems for him, it was even halfway grown up!! if i ever have another boy i definatly will get it done. its more sanitary and easer on the child

Jesus was Jewish, so of course his parents had him circumcised.

There is no reason why a man cannot get circumcised when he is an adult. Many men have this done. To do it shortly after birth is extremely cruel. It is excruciatingly painful.

Circumcision was done initially to stop men from masturbating, to make sex less pleasurable, and also to make sex less pleasurable for women.
