Not what they are in the US. Hubby is Asian and lived in China for a part of his life, and they just don't do it to their boys (especially if they still practice traditional religion).
I think it's horribly sad to erase his culture like that. And I fully agree with comparing it to changing the eye fold, only it's something private, something only the child should be involved with.
As for identification purposes...my hubby is intact but his brother isn't (something strange happened when he was older, haven't gotten a clear picture on it yet), yet they still know they are of the same family. R is half korean and doesn't look just like his mom OR dad yet still knows who his family is.
People who are adopting make such a big deal (because it should be) of continuing the child's birth culture into the future...they could have started now. If the child ever wants to return "home", say to find a wife, he's going to be in for a rude awakening because of what has been done to him.
