Strictly objectively speaking, we can't rule out that this is not also the case here, as we only experience a tiny snippet of a more complex, larger process. And again, I think it's entirely unfair to judge a different culture based on contemporary, western standards. Confirmation may have that much of an impact on your social life today, but only a few generations ago, when faith played a much more defining role in everyday life, it would have been a very important part of life within the community.
As it stands, there is simply no reason to assume that Terrigenesis is not a choice for everyone involved and an informed one at that. Since it is the defining part of Inhuman culture, there may arguably some familial expectations connected to it, btu that is not reason enough to decry it as a compulsory and mandatory institution. Such is a snap decision based on false and incomplete data, the very essence of bigotry, imho.
