'Intact America': 10 reasons to educate

...and enlighten ignorance.


The African 'studies' have been proved a futile attempt to foolishly offer yet another so-called medical reason to circumcise all males: even adults who have lived for many years with healthy, functioning foreskins.


This is no more than a mirror of the foolish claims of perceived benefits since the Victorian efforts to punish masturbation. The only difference is the Internet and its ubiquitous presence today. Even the 75% or 85% (depending on impossibly accurate figures) of intact males worldwide, should be seen as including religious circumcision. Deduct religious constraints - and what is left? A relatively few millions in the USA alone!


Is it any wonder that 'Intact America' and its community are clamouring to counter any negative report from the CDC? Centre (Center sic) for Disease Control?? When was a foreskin ever an object of disease - unless we seriously believe Messrs Kellogg, et al? (Notwithstanding his cornflakes.)


If it wasn't for those who still cling to habit/culture/normalcy or some honest belief that a natural penis is a deformity, I would not be here. Perhaps this latest, abortive, effort to seek a cure for the evil foreskin will be the last?

I DO hope so! Passionately!

Reciprocated - equally passionately.


Time will make it so...
