At one point he mentions,"
“In most cases it’s a no-brainer,” he said. “I have yet to meet a penis whose foreskin I couldn’t pull back before cutting.”

According to Zaontz, circumcision can also prevent other medical problems, such as inflammation of the head and foreskin and non-retractibility.
Some males have also been known to retract the foreskin and then forget that they did, Zaontz said. The foreskin can then act as a tourniquet and cut off blood to the penis, an occurence that can be prevented with circumcision.

Duh! You can't have retractibility problems if a foreskin isn't even there!! How about we just teach boys how to care for it instead?? Why is that such a difficult concept?!

Thanks for the article. Interesting read.

Well don't forget mattemma that our men and boys are waaaay too stupid to take care of themselves : I do have to say that I haven't ever heard that excuse before though.

Surely this quote is not going to go unmentioned...

Is that supposed to be a joke?

I've seen some bad articles before but I've never seen one with so much misinformation before. I'm going to have to reply to that one with a letter to the editor. I'll do it tonight and post it here tomorrow.
