My youngest sister is having #2, a baby boy, and he will be another intact one to add to the list
I didn't know how much she had researched the issue, so I just said flat out "promise me you won't chop off any of his penis", and she said "OH GOD NO..." :LOL
Circ rates are dropping the fastest on the coasts. They're still pretty high in the center of the US.
Circumcision is wrong, regardless of gender
There are quite a few around here, but they're all pretty much in my 'crunchy' group of friends.
Most of the parents I know from other places (ie. church, playgroups, etc) have had their sons cut

Worried about your baby's head shape? PM me for craniosynostosis info!
As a national cultural trend, this one is moving at lightning speed and we have to look at a very narrow age range to get an idea of what is happening now.
There have been 4 new baby boys born at our church in the last 2 months and all were circ. I tried to save them, but couldn't.

: Circumcision can never be undone :
We live in the UK and circumcision is almost non-existent here too [I think it is around 5% -- mainly practised by Muslim immigrants].
ALL the little boys [and big boys, ahem ] I know are intact
My 2 intact sons are grown now, but I've noticed that they have no trouble getting girlfriends!
I am happy to report that circ. is rare in the Pagan community. I attend a Pagan festival once a year and volunteer at their child-care center. Almost all baby and toddler boys are intact.
