When my husband and I found out we were having a boy we said we would 100% circumcise him. Well, we did research and decided against it even though my husband is circumcised.
When my SIL and BIL met my son the first thing they asked was how the circumcision went and we told them we decided against it. They didn’t say anything but they made a face of disgust to each other and walked away.
Almost 6 months later my MIL called me and told me she couldn’t hold it in anymore but we are disgusting and unclean for not circumcising him. My husband told her he wishes she didn’t do that to him and that we are doing what’s best for our son. She said he would constantly get infections, her dad hates that he’s not circumcised, and everyone finds our choice bothersome. My husband simply said, “my childs genitals is no one’s business and we will explain to him how we wash our parts when the time comes just like my wife would explain to our daughter how to do so. I think we’re going to keep our distance for a while because this is absurd.” And hung up. He proud because he could never stick up to his mom until now.
