For my fandom, that's euro-influenced modern North America. Circumision is a given.

Is it? For the past 25 years or so, a full 1/3 of USAmerican boys have not been circumcised. But it certainly varies based on ethnic background.

My experience with anti-circ hyperbole hasn't actually been in fannish circles but in parenting ones and in Jewish ones (with non-Jewish anti-circ people coming into the venue to tell us we're child absuers). I was just concerned that it could spread to anywhere that the topic is discussed, so I thought I'd head that one off at the pass.

The proportion of anti-circ activists who are Jews is much higher than the proportion of the general population who are Jews, as I learned by show of hands among those who had flown to Seattle last summer for the 9th Internationl Symposium on Circumcision, Genital Integrity, and Human Rights.
