Women's Health article


This was wrong on so many levels. The author blames the foreskin for spreading HIV. And hints there's no difference in sexual feeling for men or women. Unreal!

I'm searching for someone to send feedback to. No wonder our "leave baby boys alone" message gets lost.

What an irresponsibly written article. The author, obviously did no research and quite who Harry Fisch is I'm not sure, although the name does have a vaguely familiar ring.

I note that the name of the author looks Indian, and most Indians do not practise circumcision which adds a further bit of curiosity.

I hope someone writes to the editor with a rebuttal.

At least the beginning of the comments talk about what a piece of rubbish the article is. If you can't reach the author, you can at least debunk in the comments!


Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.
