90% of the characters I write live in places and times where only Jews are circumcised. So my default setting is "of course not". Only twice has it been a plot point -- once in X Men, in my prequel way back how Magneto and Mystique got together in movieverse, because of course Erik is, and once in my novel, which is in the ancient world, and Egyptians like Jews circumcise. I guess it doesn't really occur to me that it's as common today as it is.

It's funny how people's perceptions are all over the map, from those who think that almost all men in the US are circumcised to those who think it has become a rare choice in recent years.

That's interesting. I thought you were mostly an X-Men writer, but I guess not!

LOL! Responding to my own comment to say I meant to quote your "90%" but clipped it wrong so it came out 0%.
