Sadly, many North American doctors will...

I guess common sense is not so common and logic is non existent! I have been trying to wrap my head around that mindset for decades, and I'm no further ahead.

This attitude that, so sadly, is still pervasive among many doctors is about as arrogant as one could imagine. Do they think that nature made a mistake with little boys?

It's this ignorance about normal, intact male genitalia that is the one common factor in all the stories one hears about some unfortunate boy that "had to get circumcised". I don't really understand...

Well, the boarding school that I went to was hardly progressive as I grew up on an isolated farm in Africa and boarding school was the only option for education. This was in the '50s and 60's.
