Re: Do you ever feel judged regarding not circumcising?

I am 100% sure I did the right thing in leaving my son intact, so people can judge me all they want, it doesn't phase me. I don't go out of my way to flash my son's penis around when I'm changing his diaper anyway but I certainly am not going to hide it in shame either. I would hope that people I associate with would be respectful enough to have an open conversation about it should it come up (though honestly, he's almost 3 and it never really has come up in regular conversation...not even with any of his doctors).

And, while I've never been a 12 year old boy, I would think one of two things re: boys in the shower. 1) The other boys will be jealous because uncut boys will "look" bigger or 2) they won't say anything because, why are you looking at other boys' penises? I doubt it will be an issue.
