Basically, he has no valid reason and wants to continue trying to guilt trip me into forgetting all about it.
In our wedding vows we had this language:
"I will respect that which you value."
We didn't have anything about vowing to "DISrespect that which you disdain" but I suppose a couple could choose to pledge that to each other.
I would put up with that bullshit of thinking that foreskin is gross as long as it was in informed opinion. But if he can't be bothered to watch "Functions of the Foreskin" for 20 minutes (available on YouTube) he should shut up.
This would certainly be a deal-breaker for me.
