I don't know if they asked the parents of boys born here in the U.S. if they wanted their new babies cut or uncut. Maybe they just went ahead and did it. I believe that they are now asking and there's a small movement against it because it's viewed as barbaric or a violation of a young infant's body. The reason people in the U.S. select it is for hygienic purposes and because they want their kids to look like everyone else in the locker room. It doesn't really matter. In the U.S., the preference is for cut, whether they ask women or men. With uncut males, they can look different. They can have a lot of foreskin or a very small amount that almost makes it look cut or looks cut if aroused. I've heard of partial circumcision in the U.S. I don't know what that means and if it's for adults or babies. The other concern is if someone goes to be circumcised, would the length of the erect penis be shortened? They will be taking a band of skin off the circumference. I know two people who have gone through with it. One was a Latin American guy and it was voluntary. The other person did it because of phimosis.
