The reality of the debate on neonatal circumcision is that it hardly exists at all. Most male Americans grew up in an era where nearly everyone was circumcised; to be uncircumcised was considered unusual. Even for many of those who disdain violence and the struggle to retain archaic social norms, it is almost as if circumcision is a topic off-limits to debate – perhaps out of denial or an appealing sense of conformity.
