Yeah, he's definitely cut. It's pretty obvious if you know what you're looking at. The penis is pointed straight at the camera and you can see the meatus clearly, which would not be visible if he were intact.

It doesn't surprise me at all. Especially since even drawings in Anatomy books are usually drawn circumcised. Honestly, I doubt it even crossed anyone's mind. It was just "Oh, we need a baby boy." I'm sure no one even thought about the fact that he'd need a foreskin. To many people, this is just what a penis looks like, they never even stop to think that it wasn't always that way.

On a more positive note, did any of you notice little Clark Kent in the original Christopher Reeve Superman movie? It's one of my 6 year old's favorites, so it's on a lot. When Clark's space ship crashes into the field and his adoptive parents find him, he walks up the side of the impact crater naked and intact. Considering that this movie was made in the 1980's, that's kind of a surprise.

Are we looking at the same photo?

I kind of sort of see what you mean, but if that blurry circular shape is the tip pointed at at the camera, what indicates that the slight shadow in the middle of it is the meatus and not the spincter? Not every baby has a lot of over hang, DS didn't. Also, if he was circ'd, wouldn't the tip still be pretty red? The general blur of the area is a consistent flesh color.

DS's isn't red anymore...the baby they used is "older" (a few months) so the redness is probably gone a bit...
