I can see why you would be pissed off about that, it's not a good system. Overall I think it should not be done automatically to boys. OTOH, I am uncircumcised and think foreskin has its pros and also downsides, so having one does not mean you attain penis nirvana
If you believe this, then you also must believe that martians routinely come and abduct humans, returning them many years later, in an unaltered state. LOL!
Seriously, now, do you really believe that a doctor would perform a medical procedure on you without the consent of your parents? C'mon. Besides, the cost of a circ at birth is so small that it's not really worth 'sneaking' it in there.
You were cut (or left alone) simply because your parents thought it was best for you. There's no subterfuge involved.
