Here I am: an Englishman in a nation that culturally, habitually and reasonably abhors boy circumcision to the extent that our secular male child circumcision rate is about 2.3%.
We outlawed female circumcision, child and adult, in 1986. But we still allow male circumcision - child and adult - to this day, without censure.
See the link below and help me understand how so much of our world, historically and currently, are beset with such an impassioned need to rid the penis of its foreskin. I'm well aware of historical events and present cultural pressures; but evolution, at the least, would have naturally rid male mammals of their foreskins by this time if they were redundant.
The link is not pleasant...
