Circumcision was popularized in the U.S. by Christian sex prudes. There is no reason for a christian population to do it on religious grounds. It was started here because people got upset over boys constantly touching their pee pees. Of course they couldn't say that was the reason, so they had to come up with medical reasons why they did it.
It winds up going on generation after generation, and becomes "normal".
