Re: Divorced couple battles over 12-year-old's circumcision
Actually, cirucmcision can turn into a big deal!
The boy should know everything about circumcision - what happens differently because of it. Frankly, I don't see any way it could prevent HIV, altho you should wear a condom anyway. You shouldn't worry about that because you should rely on a condom and not a piece of skin.
Sure, extra protection can be a good thing, but in this case, I don't think the trade off is that good. If the boy really wants this, then he should be able to reguardless of what his mother says, and vise versa if the whole thing was flipped.
