Monday Teeny Poll

So 43% of you are just fine with the Unbaby.me app that removes all bubbeh pics from your Facebook feed.  26% are like, whatever, 17% say if you dislike babies that much, just unfriend the person already, and 13% of you are not even on Facebook.

Today’s question is regarding the recent change in policy to male infant circumcision.  It seems that a peer-reviewed study has shown that the benefits of circumcision outweigh the risks, and the AAP is stopping just short of recommending routine infant circumcision.

    The results are not enough to make me wish I had snipped the tip of my boys. I always have and always will support people in making their own decisions for their own children. I don’t see where it is anyone’s business what someone else does with their kid’s penis.

    Not a thing for my son, and really only the norm in the US. But i’m not going to tell someone they can’t do it to their child.

    Infant circumcision is relatively rare here (the Philippines), but circumcision itself is the norm. Boys between the ages of nine and 12 usually go off on their own (they rarely tell their parents they are doing it) to the local health clinic which offers free circumcisions during the summer break. In the provinces, it is the local herbalist who handles the job with a razor and chewed up guava leaves (an antiseptic). The boys egg each other on to get it done as an uncircumcised penis is a sign of being a child. It is quite common in the summer to see boys going around in loose skirts — easier than wearing pants when your penis is sore.
