An intactivist protester at Oprah Winfrey’s show in Adelaide tonight was apparently shut down by police only 2 minutes after arriving.
The man was objecting to Oprah Winfrey’s endorsements of a face cream derived from human foreskin.
A hand-written sign held up to crowds outside the Entertainment Centre read:
“Foreskin Facecream Oprah’s Shame”
He was apparently threatened with arrest, although the police could not provide information on the details of the charge, so he was allowed to leave with his sign tossed onto the footpath.
We understand this was the first anti-genital mutilation protest to be held in Adelaide. A facebook post of the short-lived encounter has been met with support, and generated interest in organising a larger protest in the future.
Reblogged this on Circumcision Doctors Australia.
Oprah is a skank
This man not only still has his foreskin as he has big b**ls, Well done! hope this raises awareness!!
Nice going Mr. protester. I think we need more like you. Like 50 there next time.
Good for you. The dual standards of people like Oprah Winfrey are stultifying.
Good on ya mate! Hopefully you won’t be alone in your next protest.
Huh? Why would a protest like this be shut down?
“Money doesn’t talk. It swears.”
It takes courage to make a stand in an environment that is so rife where coruption and ethical misconduct are a hallmark of both the police force, the medical profesion and the media. I noticed that the horoe of this encounter did not have his name published. It seems that the medical profesion here in Australia has a policy of hiding it’s wrongdoing so as to help keep the dollars rolling in for their comrades.
Because Oprah advertises goods both here in Australia but more importantly in the US where male genital mutilation is a bilion of dollars business involving the medical profesion. The unauthorised bodypart market the cosmetics industry. The insurance industry and even The US Gvts NGO financing of people in Africa on false pretence. There are billion and billions of $ involved here. They pay the police for protection and have the money to do it. While honest people who protest this child abuse don’t. It’s realy quite simple.
Great effort! I wonder if Oprah has heard about the protest and is thinking about this. She seems to be an intelligent woman, possibly not so jaded by her millions that she can’t allow repeated protests to register somewhere in her mind. It would be wonderful if she could experience an awakening to our cause.
She knows exactly what she is doing.
On what ostensible legal grounds was a peaceful protester removed and his sign discarded?
On the golden rule.
Them with the gold, write the laws.
What a decent man; I wish I could have been there with him. The more people like him there are, the better
Bravo Mr. Protester! Oprah’s shame is her hypocrisy. Using stolen body parts from children’s genitals for her “beauty treatment” is beastly. Thank you for standing up to speak truth to…power, greed, cruelty and sexual mutilation.
What the hell is wrong with Australia? How can free speech not be a thing there? Was he on private property or something? Why wouldn’t he be allowed to retain his sign even if he was asked to leave? Messed up stuff.
YES I call this PERFECT.
How does a father teach his son how to clean if the father doesn’t have a foreskin?
What is your position of Affirmative Action in general, as feminists could defend circumcision in the same way as Affirmative Action, that is, the opposition oppressor-oppressed?
The fact is that most boys don’t have to be to concerned about cleaning anything they can’t see unless they themselves are able to retract the foreskin.and that happens in its own good time. For some very early for others not until puberty. In any case have you ever seen a boy in the bath that doesn’t get a hold of his penis which then gets cleaned without any further need for special instructions they do it themselves because it feels good to do so.
“Apparently, she had some experiences with smelly intact guys. I told her that it is all a question of hygiene: soap and water. All the guy needs to do is wash himself, and there is no abnormal smell from a penis, unless he happens to have a yeast or bacterial infection, of course. I guess the intact men she had been with must have had poor hygiene in general.”
So men do not always clean themselves…
