Sorry, not from Australia, but Canada. I'm chiming in because I have a question to ask. In about 1980 when the Australian equivalent of the AAP stop recommending routine infant circumcision, why did the circ rate almost immediately plunge? I mean, it seems that a heck of a lot of Aussie boys born after 1980 are more likely intact than cut.
But in the U.S. and Canada it's taken sooooooooo long for the rate to go down to minority status (minority being the circ'd boys)... and even then, Canada beat the Americans to it way faster!
I chatted with an 18-year-old gay Aussie guy online and I was curious, so I asked him about the circ rate his peers (his age range). He said only 1 out of 5 are cut... 1 out of 5!!!
