I was scribing through the Oprah show and saw she is looking for ideas for future shows, and she is looking for someone who wants to be a producer for a day that has a groundbreaking idea.
I submitted an idea for female and male genital mutilation, and why one is allowed and one is not.
This is the second Ive submitted a request for a show on circumcision.
Does anybody else request a show on circumcision?
Maybe if enough people demanded an honest show on this it would happen. I think its past time the world saw whats going here.

Oprah, the great feminist, is not a humanist. She has little to no interest in primarily "male" concerns. (Although I see this as a human rights issue, of course.) Once on her show/site she hawked skin cream containing "human foreskin!" (exclamation point hers.) She doesn't care.

Looooong ago she did have a show about restoration, and had men on there doing it and how angry they were about having been circ'ed. I did not watch it closely at all, so I can't tell you what her attitude towards it was. This was like 7 or 8 years ago, maybe longer.

i emailed her several years ago and encouragedher to do a show on MGM, but never heard a thing. I doubt she'll ever do it, but like you say, maybe if enough of us email her.....maybe tonight.
