Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project to protest Oprah over foreskin cream

Did you know there’s a wrinkle cream that uses skin cells taken from foreskin? Well there is. Foreskin cream is a thing that exists and you can pay money to rub it on your face.

I swear to shit, everything I just said is true.

Apparently, the stuff must work to some degree because Oprah Winfrey, the woman your mother prays to, actually endorsed it a little while back, and not everyone was happy about that. CAN-FAP, who are probably well aware of what the term “fap” means, has come out against Oprah in the past over her endorsement of the product and is now planning on protesting her when she makes her way up to Ontario this week.

“How would Oprah respond if a skin cream for men hit the market that was made using cells from the genitalia of little girls? I think she would be absolutely disgusted and appalled, and rightly so. So it’s crazy that she’s doing the opposite,” said Glen Callender of the pro-foreskin advocacy group the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project.

“We think it’s extremely hypocritical and distasteful that Oprah Winfrey — who is herself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and an outspoken opponent of female genital mutilation — at the same time uses and promotes a product that wouldn’t exist if not for the forcible genital mutilation of boys,” he added.

Personally, I don’t really have a horse in the race, but maybe don’t use the anti-aging cream that lists “foreskin” as a main ingredient. As a general rule of thumb, if the list of ingredients makes it sound like Soylent Green, maybe consider the alternative? Just putting that one out there.
