Support Anti-Circumcision Bill With Anti-Semitic Hero 'Foreskin Man'

What better way to show your support for the San Francisco circumcision-ban ballot measure than by picking up a copy of "Foreskin Man No. 2," in which the suspiciously Aryan "intactivist" superhero battles "Monster Mohel"?

Support Anti-Circumcision Bill With Anti-Semitic Hero 'Foreskin Man'

"Nothing excites Monster Mohel more," the Foreskin Man trading cards helpfully inform us, "than cutting into the penile flesh of an eight-day-old infant boy." He sure does seem excited, doesn't he? He also seems a little bit, uh, how you say, racist? Whoa there, P.C. police! The San Francisco Chronicle's Debra Saunders asked creator Matthew Hess if the comic was anti-Semitic, to which Hess replied, "A lot of people have said that, but we're not trying to be anti-Semitic. We're trying to be pro-human rights."


So there you have it. There's nothing anti-Semitic about "Foreskin Man"! It's just a delightful, family-friendly comic book about a guy who... I guess he owns, like, a circumcision museum? And he has these magic... boots? And, uh, there's this gang of, I think, hippie bikers? "The Intactivist Underground"? Who steal stuff from hospitals? It's kind of a trip.
