    Inspired by this thread http://www.lpsg.org/51552-do-all-the-men-in.html, I'm wondering if your circumcision status is different from your fathers', have you ever discussed it with him? Has he ever explained why your status is different?

    In my own situation, I'm cut, my father isn't, but he's never mentioned it and I've always been too embarrassed to bring it up.

    I'm cut like my old man. So is my brother. Bit of a 'family tradition'. You should ask your Dad why he had you circumcised when he's not. Maybe the hospital didn't ask and just did it?

    I'm curious to ask but I know he's embarrassed by the whole issue too. Maybe I'll get some ideas on how to raise it from here?

    All the older generations before me was not cut.
    we were from a small town and the doctor convinced every one that was the best thing to do on all new borns . some of my cousins was also cut .
    after getting older i found this out being a friend of the under takertaker son that
    he heard his father talking ond day that when the doctor was not cut when he passed away. He had talked all of the young parents that was the best thing and he was not his self.
    Hated that doctor every since 9 years when my uncle told me and my cousion.the reason we all got cut .
    i think it should be a law that only if it is a medical prolbem.it should be your choice after you get to be an adult to be YOUR CHOICE whether you want to be cut or not
    l know lots of people like being cut .
    For my self i wish i was uncut .
    But it wasent my choice. Something i have had to live with all my life.
    I did not have my sons cut the are old enough to have it don their self if they want it.
    If they decide to it will be their choice .
    neither has any intentions of of being cut .and even thank me for not having them cut .
    when they got old enough to know what i was talking about i told them what happen to mine.

    Other way round here. My Dad was circumcised, I'm not.

    Very few British guys of my generation (born late-50s/early-60s) were circumcised, only about four of the 80 lads in my year at school had been cut. My late dad was born in the 20s and did his National Service out in Burma, so i wonder if his circumcision was related to that. My grandad was not circumcised but I don't know the status of my dad's three older brothers.

    I don't know. My dad was a very private man (some would say almost prudish) when it came to anything related to sex (genitals included).

    My father is cut, as is pretty much everyone on his side of the family, and also my little half brother. On my mother's side I don't know, but I always presumed my grandpa wasn't.
    Reason is that my dad's being Muslim he says it's something that has to be done, and is something to be proud of. And that I should be happy that it was done to me as an infant, as it doesn't hurt as much to a child as it does to an adult, and ofcourse that a child won't remember the pain when he grows up.

    Yes I was on the edge of snapping, jumping on top of him and strangling him because of his arrogance towards the subject and my personal POV on it...

    My father is uncut, while I am cut. I have always assumed that his status is due to the fact that he was born at home, since the same doctor delivered both of us.

    Did you have frostbite, gangrene, or a hasty doctor?

    I know a guy who was born at home, and then circumcised on the kitchen table.

    I attribute the difference to the generational gap. Less prevelant at the time of his birth, more so during the time I was born.

    Retract your foreskin and walk around all day with it like that, and I guess you have a pretty good idea of how it would be...

    i'm cut and my father isn't

    i've never seen his dick but my mom told me the story of when she had me she got me snipped a day later at the hospital while my dad was at work and when he got off he came to the hospital and she told him and he was pissed off.

    my mom did a conniving but awesome deed. I love being cut.

    My dad is circumcised, I'm not.

    I've never asked him directly, but based on offhanded comments he's made, it's pretty obvious he either dislikes it or dislikes not having had the choice.

    I don't think asking him specifically would serve much purpose.
