In 1960, 90 percent of American boys were circumcised. Today, studies put the rate at about 57 percent.
Since circumcision is not a given anymore, parents struggle with the decision of whether or not to snip a tiny piece of foreskin from their sons' penises. Some families point to religious or medical reasons for circumcision (uncircumcised males may have a higher risk of health problems in the future), but other parents consider the practice unnatural. The dilemma is even the subject of Partly Private a documentary debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Since parents are having a tough time making a decision, I thought I'd let you all weigh in. Does it matter to you if a man is circumcised?
