    Ok....
    I don't know if this is just a funny coincidence or if it's genuine statistical truth. But it seems as if there are more guys who are uncut in the Southern US states or in "Redneck"-related areas than here in the North.

    I don't want this thread to turn into another cut vs uncut argument. I'm just presenting a question.

    Has anyone else ever thought or noticed this... or is this just me being delusional? :confused:

    i'm southern, of hillbilly and redneck lineage, all the men in family are uncut. family inside giggle from when i was born - My Dad: Don't circumcise him!! Doc: It's a girl.

    most the boys i knew or saw nekkid growing up were uncut. it took the internet, porn and moving to Mass to teach me how circumcision was more common than not.

    ML

    added: my boyfriend is from TX, uncut.

    Yeah, but why?

    Aren't there more religious people with these lifestyles?

    Just curious.

    I'm from alabama...and to my knowledge, every male on dad's side of the family is cut. they/we are all 'good christian men' and there for had to be circumsized to show that we are children of god. (theres a butt load of sarcasm in quotations). No we're not jewish....presbytarian and church of christ. now on moms side, I have no clue. I know my grandfather was uncut, but he also was 'born and bred' in a very rural area, and I seriously doubt there was a hospital or pediatritian w/i 30 miles. Idk about my uncles or only male cousins status, but when I saw that my grandfather was uncut, I was PISSED OFF!
    I wish I had of been given the choice, instead of that choice being made by someone else.

    maybe one reason for every uncut boy south of the mason-dixon?

    here are some. until just after world war 2 rural births were more likely to be home births or local town doctors. home birth would rule out RIC resulting in fewer members of the older generations being circumcised deleting the "look like his father" factor from the equation. unless a small town doctor had training in the operations i don't think he/she would opt to perform the surgery. too many complications to risk it.

    many of the southern state had a higher rate of poverty/lower income household, the cost would have prevented more than few circumcisions.

    lots of baptists and methodists south of the border. so maybe circumcising would fall under not altering your body as god made it.

    last of my strange little theories, it's hot as blue blazes down south. more people run around half nekkid just to keep cool. seeing other peoples bodies, seeing the variations out there reduces body shame or discomfort. again less likely to alter the human body for something as silly as aesthetics.

    my family are all spooky mountain witch spiritual people. my aunties are midwives and herbalists. that natural law/energy believe system sorta shaped my family's world view. the biggest related to cut or uncut: you don't own your children, you're responsible to your children. you do no harm, and you would never make an irreversible change to their bodies without a damn good reason.

    ML

    all the rambling above is pure guess work. umm there is a good chance i am an idiot.:surprised:

    I'm from KY and I really didnt now anyone who was uncut that I can think of when I lived there. I wish I was uncut...sigh. HOWEVER, My brother didn't get circumsized until he was 15..OUCH. So much more pain they say after you go thru puberty... *I cannot vouch for that* :)

    I am circumcised. During the 1950's and 1960's it was assumed that a male would be circumcised before going home from the hospital. MickeyLee is no doubt correct. Boys born in remote rural areas came into the world at home an the only thing that was cut was the umbilical cord. I was born in town at the local hospital and the practice was to circumcise. I only remember one guy my age who was uncircumcised.

    Ga man here, uncut, dad is uncut, sons uncut (and grandson is uncut), I was told when I had kids, NOT to cut...familly tradition...

    I remember once being in a shower with all cut guys and trying to 'roll it back'....(wound up giving me an erection lol)

    actually I have always heard the statistic that 'cutting' boys in the south was a hygene (sp) issue...no running water = less chance to wash, so no foreskin is easier to clean (foreskin = greater chance of various root rots)

    I was born in the north, near Michigan, Born at home and uncut, as was my brother.
    We had outside toilets and so the men took their leaks outside the house in a hidden corner, so I saw my dad many times. His foreskin covered his cockhead.
    When in my early teens, a man I worked with told me to keep it pulled back. And I did.
    In my briefs I could keep it back . from then on it was dry and clean, but still uncut.
    It is very well trained and stays back most of the time,,,,most people do not know I am uncut. Including women.

    I see no religious significance at all in it.... yes the Hebrews and some Arabs circumcise.

    I've talked to more than a few people who've had it done later in life, and 98% of them say that it never really hurt that much while they were healing.

    lol I bet you're the type of guy who demands general anesthesia when you get a tooth pulled, and are scared to death of needles. Anxiety and pain are very closely related, you know.

    Christ almighty!!

    There is NO requirement for circumcision of Christians. NONE! Jesus speaks against it in the Gospel of Thomas, Paul speaks against it a number of places. The only Christians who circumcise for religious purposes are the Copts and they're not western Christians. The Catholic and Orthodox churches actually have statements saying there is no religious requirement. The Protestants are no different.

    I am really curious about circumcision practices in North America. From what I have found out, while circumcision may be less common in rural areas, large Sourthern cities have very high rates of cutting. From some statistics for 2004 births, Kentucky and South Carolina had about 85% of infant boys circumcised after birth in the hospital.

    It can make a difference whether Medicaid programs cover it: they are state by state, and on average circumcision rates are about 25% lower when the program does not pay for it. Canadian provinces largely stopped coverage in the 80s so guys 20 and younger are more likely to be uncut.

    I know a guy from white, middle class Nashville who went to an all boys school, played sports, showered with other guys regularly, and never saw a single uncircumcised penis (which disappointed him since he was dying to know what they were like).

    Guys in my dorm at college had never seen an uncut guy.

    I showed them pics from my porn collection.

    I'd say it's a genuine statistical truth if you're combining the midwest and northeast into one area. It appears that you're doing that.

    The chart below is derived from the National Hospital Discharge Survey, and therefore, reflects only hospital data. The midwest and northeast are separate in the chart.

    http://www.cirp.org/library/statistics/USA/circ_rate_region_1995-2006.png

    The cut rate is the highest in the midwest, lower in the northeast. The south is slightly lower than the northeast and more so in recent years. It isn't a stretch to say the cut rate is lower in the south verses north; that's certainly the case if only hospital data is used.

    One factor not yet mentioned: immigrants. They're less lilkely to cut than the general pop. but I think that they've only had an effect on the most recent years.

    I'm from South Carolina and most of the dicks I saw growing up about 80% were cut and the rest were uncut it was like finding the needle in the haystack. In Middle and High School in the locker rooms it was more so about the same about 70% cut and the rest were uncut. Here in DC is about the same however I see a lot more uncut guys though, so I cant make a generalization based on what I've seen.

    ^^^That's an interesting graph... but its deceiving because it wouldn't show guys who weren't born in hospitals, which probably isn't much though. But thanks.


    Also, I'm still thankful this hasnt turned into a 'cut vs uncut' argument....
    We're so far beyond those.

    I don't know what you mean by "deceiving".

    I've read that boys born in hospitals are much more likely to be cut, so excluding the non-hospital data would skew the cut rate higher. If "deceiving" means overstating the cut rate, then I'd agree with you.
    Don't relax! :tongue:
