Dedee Pfeiffer, Michelle's sister, is an outspoken Intactivist! :

She was on an epsiode of 'Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher' when the topic went to circumcision discussion and she mentioned the human rights violation it is.

I hope she had some influence on her sister and brother David E. Kelley if they were unsure about circ.

Also, actor Kyra Sedgwick is anti-circ. Her husband Kevin Bacon is very clearly circ'd (the movie 'Wild Things').

I thought Prince Charles was intact too. I would think the list had more to do with confirmation of intactness than being a fully inclusive list. I'm sure many people both famous and not don't show there penises or discuss them in public.

DS has a short foreskin with no over hang, his pediatrician forgot he was intact one time when she had just gotten back from maternity leave.

Nope -- He's definitely circ'ed. It was done by the most prominent mohel in London at the time because they wanted someone very experienced.

Charles is most definitely not intact. Dating back to Queen Victoria, it has been customary for royals to be circumcised. At first, it was a Victorian-era mentality about how it cured this and that, was much cleaner, etc. Eventually it just became custom, even when circ fell out of favour in the UK. This downward trend eventually affected the royal family when Diana, not being rooted in such traditions, refused to let her sons be cut according to the wishes of their father and grandparents. Hopefully that spells the end of the circumcision custom amongst members of the royal family as well. There'd probably be a lot of head scratching if William or Harry ever revived the outdated practice considering they're intact like 95%+ of British men their age.
