I just read this post about circumcision over at Mama Raw. I think she has a great point about how much culture shapes our attitudes towards things, not just circumcision, but most of our parenting and medical assumptions. It is hard to strip away our own preconceived ideas to get at the heart of things, I know, but it is always a good idea to do so, inky opinion. We may or may not do things the same way after doing that, but change isn’t always necessary. The point is examining our ideas and seeing how they stand up after that, I think. I’ve shared my views on circumcision quite a bit, so I won’t rehash that, but feel free to look at Mama Raw’s post for her take on it.
