My son is 18 months born in california but we live in montana now.

Circ is still high in the richer society in montana while the 'teens/poor areas are less likely to circ .

I only know of two people in town who didn't circ.

My intact sons are 9, 6 and just about 3 years. I don't think our medical has paid for circs in at least the past 9 years. Not one dr I have come across in the past 10 years has ever suggested that circ was a good idea.

If it matters we are caucasian and lower middle class, but I think bc (maybe all of western canada) has pretty low circ rates

23 and 21. We weren't the first pioneers, but we were relatively early non-circers.

Ari will be three in May. We live in New England, and are white. With the moms I know, intact sons are the majority, but I know that doesn't truly reflect the population, just the moms I hang out with.

I'm Jewish, so in most of the circles I hang around in, Ari is the definite minority!

My DS is 2 and Caucasian. We live in Mass., and except in my earthy crunchy circle, he is the only intact boy I know. It is not even questioned. All four of his cousins are circed.

Turning ten is my son this year.

I live is crunchy blue island called Decatur. The intactness rate is much higher here, maybe even halfies. Part of this is that Emory/CDC bring many folks here from other parts of the world to study. Their kids go to my kid's school. Cool , huh?

Neither have ever had any problems, not even slight irritation. All males in our families are intact as well (dh is English, I'm Latvian).

I don't know any circ'ed youngsters except our Jewish friends. And I have a lot of friends with baby boys ( almost all of them in fact---go figure!)
Mine are 6 and 3.
Circumcision is definitely the exception in these parts. It wasn't even brought up once for either of my two hospital births. I get the feeling I would have had to give religious reasons if I did want to circumcise them.

I just looked it up, and according to Health Canada, the hospital circ. rate in the province of BC is 6% (1996).
