So my mom (one of my two readers) just emailed me and was concerned about my comments at the end of the last post. She thought they were rather harsh. The "Perosnally I'm not about to take on that responsibility" and so on. She wants me to censor it a bit.

So the gal chose not to write publicly, that's her perogative. Just because I choose the opposite and write very publicly, doesn't make either one of us better or worse. She wasn't writing for advice - who am I to give advice anyway? - she was just sharing her experience.

Hey, I'm not saving the world here, I'm not curing cancer, I'm sharing my opinion. In my own style. It doesn't have to be the same as yours.

I'm just a gal that's pregnant and writing about it.

Good for you!

Just for controversy sake - I am totally against circumcision. totally and utterly. for a million different reasons. but the number one reason is that babies feel pain. they feel pain. they feel the pain of their bodies traumatized. and physically cutting the body is a trauma. physically cutting the body for no reason is assault and an abuse of power. and that adds a whole new dimension to the kind of pain that babies feel.

how's that for opinionated? too much? too public?

it probably won't matter that I add that I do respect other peoples' decisions - i just have a hard time understanding them. i also believe that peoples' decisions regarding their babies are private that way - and that no one should be judged. One must always simply be true to one's own self.
