Wow lots of people here are really excited about foreskin. I am circumcised, my kids probably will be as well. That said I don't think that I have very strong feelings about it either way, I just want my kids to be like me so that they don`t have any issues growing up (why am I different (this happens)). Also I am a student in a psychiatric NP program and we are bludgeoned with the negative aspects of circumcision, then taught to not make moral judgements about female genital mutilation (I refuse to call it female circumcision).

It's tradition in my area of the USA. Looks better to me. I`ll do it to my kid when i have one. Of course people love to force others to do or not do something because they think its wrong. Just suck it up and raise your own kid. thanks

^^ I can point you towards estimates of phimosis ^^
The rate for adult phimosis is 2% - 4% depending no who's measuring. About half of these cases seek treatment. The rest seem blisfully unaffected.
The treatment for phimosis is gentle stretching with Betamethasone 0.05% - 0.1% ointment. If you can`t wait a few months for stretching to work the surgical remedy is "triple incision dorsal slit with transverse closure" which amutates nothing.
Circumcision has no place in a discussion about phimosis.
