Did anyone else see the dermatologist on Oprah today talking about the amazing anti-ageing face cream made with cells from forskins!

Sick.

We discussed this a little while ago- it's amazing isn't it- that people have no problem with that?

I'm probably glad I mised the Oprah show... would she ever allow somone to hawk a product on her show made of female genitalia?

Love Sarah

Sarah, I like this:

If men were supposed to have a foreskin...

they would be born with one!
That was the only thing I said to my family (in defending our decision not to circumsize) against which they couldn't come up with some silly argument!

No, unfortunately, Oprah hasn't "lost it," because she never "had it" in the first place. She's such a feminist that she ignores men's issues (unless she thinks those issues will boost ratings with her mostly female audience.)

And believe me, I'm not knocking feminists, because I am one myself, but I've become much more humanist since having a son.

Sarah, you should write her a letter and ask her that question--would she hawk products made with female genitalia?!!!

From Oprah's website talking about this cream:
"TNS is comprised from six natural human growth factors found in normal healthy skin."


That's right folks.............foreskin IS NORMAL and HEALTHY!! Especially when you leave it on your boy!!

I'm so disgusted with Oprah. I will never watch her show again.

I have a friend who works in a dermatologist office and she mentioned this to me-sick is right. She thinks its pretty gross too, but is going to circo. anyway! I guess its a big business this circumcision trade! I also emailed comment to Oprah.

Ugh, I used to actually respect Oprah. I wrote her a comment too. That's the last time I'll watch her...
