Lol, I think it is b/c my DH was born in another country. He came to the US when he was in 2nd grade. HOWEVER, his brother IS circ'd. My stupid mil tricked my bil into getting circ'd. She lied and told him they were going somewhere else, when he was jr high aged. Can you imagine??? He doesn't get along with his mom and I always tell my DH it is b/c he still resents her for doing this horrible thing to him. Ironically, my nephew is circ'd, but I am sure mil had some influence, she threw a fit when she found out I was not circ'ing my kids. She wanted to get my DH circ'd too, but when he saw his brother come home holding his crotch and crying, he said he refused to go anywhere with his parents, so they weren't able to trick him into doing it. My mil did it, b/c she thought it was the new trend (she's very vain and shallow, appearance and material wealth is EVERYTHING. Nice. She from south korea. I have no clue what the circ rate is there, probably higher now than before though, since they often like to follow western trends. Both of my brothers are not circ'd (I asked my mom), b/c my dad (a ped), didn't think it was necessary and we were all born in the US (but my parents are from taiwan, where I know for a fact the BF rate is even worse than the US, so I also wonder what the circ rate is there now).
