Because Sometimes More is More
Disclaimer: This is not to say that I feel you shouldn’t circumcise. I am personally making this decision for my son, and I don’t care what you do with yours. I just feel that this is the better option.
I just need some help, because she seems wicked opposed to the idea. Saying it can cause infection, and that they don’t even cut that much off, etc. Which is false. She also says that he’s going to hate me for it later on in life, and it’s going to cause UTI’s and such.
Even if he does grow up to regret your choice not to circumcise, the amount of frustration that would create is substantially less than the potentially much greater frustration of being unhappily—and irreversibly—circumcised. And that’s just one of the things that you could say in your defense.
