Its one of those things, in America doctors are misinformed about the functions of the foreskin and they can be paid upwards to $1000 for one by pharmaceutical companies who use it in some face creams for women. Also most parents ( if there ever was a consent) don't know what they were consenting to. Most importantly, thought, parents are mis-informed. They believe you must
look like your father, or that they are dirty or unattractive. It is all defined by culture.
