ouch

i saw my first male circumcision in class on friday.. and wow.. that looks incredibly painful..
my job was to stand there and try to sooth the baby while the doctor was snipping away.. the poor little guy.. he took it like it champ.. but it definitely make me think twice about circumcision.

I rememer when my son had his. I KNOW i cried more than he did!!
However,Jen just informed me that males who are circumcized have a much lesser chance of getting AIDS. So there's food for thought.
Plus, I know 2 men who had not been circumcized at birth abd had to have it done in their 60s and 80s. That's just gross!!!!
