I never realized how horrible circumcision really is, I feel deeply upset that I never got to have a choice.

My husband was circumcised and he goes back and forth on whether or not he’s upset about it.

Yes, absolutely, his parents made an uneducated, permanent cosmetic choice for him. He had no ability to consent, and it was done mostly for religious reasons...and he ended up being an atheist anyway.

But on the other hand, it’s done. It’s over. There’s nothing he can do to change it. Being upset over it just needlessly puts him in a bad mood. He can advocate all he wants, and the younger generations are starting to move away from the practice, but being mad doesn’t bring back his foreskin.

I have heard that some people have sort of regrown a faux foreskin. You essentially stretch the skin, slowly, over like MONTHS until it resembles foreskin. It’s not the same thing, of course, but if it makes you feel a little bit better then what’s the harm in trying?
