My one sis in law absolutely freaked when she found out he wasn't circ'd. I was actually really shocked at her reaction. She has a son who is 6 years older. With her reaction I told her I had no intention in cutting off part of is penis since he was born perfect.

He is the 2nd intact male on dh's side. Dh only has a brother and he and his wife's only son is intact.

Yup, ours is the only intact male on both sides of the family. Most people didn't ask, it probably never crossed their minds that we wouldn't. But MIL asked how it went and when I said we didn't/wouldn't do it she and FIL sort of rolled their eyes like I was a dumb hippie. ---> duuuuh
