Quite frankly, the way most Americans talk about foreskin — be they male or female — is embarrassing. Are we that sexually immature as a nation that we are truly confused and disgusted by the way men are born? Are we that ignorant to our own sexual frustrations that, even with the answer right under our noses, we can’t put our finger on the problems in our bedrooms?

I used to get angry when I would hear people talk down on the intact male body. But now? Now, I feel more ashamed than anything… I’m happy to be whole, so attacks on my penile status just mystify and amuse me. But I am truly ashamed of my people in how they so vigorously put down the masculine form. Our society is so accepting of this discrimination it’s pathetic… and worrisome…
