The Real Michael Brown has a post-worth-discussing about circumcision. Surely, nothing controversial…
… I am weeks away from welcoming a newborn baby.
I found myself praying for a little girl, just so I wouldn’t have to make this decision.
A barrage of information, mixed with doubt and anxiety.
I had been hearing stories about how women are freaked out by uncircumcised men.
Would my son be sad, that his “didn’t look like Daddies.”
There were a dozen other issues, that I was considering.
But, were any of those reasons, valid enough for me to go against my gut feeling?
Everything I had read about circumcision, seemed to point to it being a useless procedure. While common and relatively safe, I could not help but feel that this procedure was archaic and dare I say, cruel.
If you had never heard of circumcision and it was not something that was done a majority of the time, like it is now. If a Doctor came into your room after delivery and described it to you, for you the first time, the procedure he wanted to [perform] on your infant. Is there a chance in hell you would sign off on that?
