I spent my entire school career in boys boarding schools starting at age 6. The shower rooms were totaly communal. There was absolutely no privacy. About 2/3 were circumcised, and I do not remember one single instance of teasing based on circumcision status. We all knew who was intact and who was not - you could not help but notice - and homophobia never appeared on anyone's radar until at least mid teens, so yes, we looked. The thing was, nobody cared. It was just accepted that some were different. Speaking for myself, I was a bit envious of those with a foreskin, because I percieved them as having something cool that I did not. I do know that my Dad and other male members of the family were circumcised because I saw them, but it would not have bothered me in the least to have been intact.
