New Superhero 'Foreskin Man' Accused Of Being Anti-Semitic


What the world needs now is a superhero based on a dude who still has his foreskin, am I right? No?

Well, here he is anyway:

His fists clenched and muscles rippling beneath a tight blue suit, the yellow-caped character appears poised to take on evil-doers.
But as his name suggests, “Foreskin Man” is not a typical comic-book superhero, and neither is his choice of adversaries: doctors who practice circumcision and Orthodox Jews who support the religious ritual.

Now there’s a way to get uncircumcised kids excited about their foreskin again: create a superhero who’s just. like. them!

Because what kid doesn’t love penis-based superheroes?

San Diego activist Matthew Hess says he conceived the Internet comic series last year as a way to boost his budding national effort to outlaw circumcision – an effort that has led to a measure on San Francisco’s ballot in November that would make it illegal to perform a circumcision on a boy under 18.
Recently, though, the comic series has drawn criticism from those who deride Hess’ imagery as anti-Semitic and liken it to 1930’s Nazi propaganda.


Well, I guess the answer is “Jewish kids who aren’t into Nazi propaganda imagery”.

That makes sense.
