Why did my mom have my brother circumcised but not me?

I’m a 16 year old boy from Germany. Both of my parents are from here but they never got married because I was an accident and they didn’t love each other. My mom was single for a while until she met this Turkish guy who she has been with for a long time and recently got married too.

Here we don’t really circumcise boys unless you’re religious or your culture tells you to do so. I’m not circumcised and I think that’s the norm and good.

Recently my mom and my stepdad had a son tho and when his diaper was being changed I saw his penis. There was no foreskin and a plastic ring around it. Why in the world would my mom have that done to her son if she isn’t even religious or anything? She is just a 37yo white German woman. I certainly have my foreskin left. I don’t wanna ask her directly because that would be so damn awkward.

    No it wouldn't be awkward to ask your mom but did it cross your mind that it's your stepdad's decision to circumcise your brother?
