Foreskin Man meets his nemesis

Posted by Tom Megginson | 2-08-2011 22:59 | Category: Politics

If you don’t remember Foreskin Man from a previous post, it is an awkward and frighteningly anti-Semitic comic book created by Matthew Hess, an intactivist from California.


Well, every super “hero” has his nemesis. And here’s his: Captain Israel (no, not that Captain Israel).


That’s right, Foreskin Man! Captain Israel has you by your wrinkled… flaccid… ummm… what is that supposed to represent?

More after the break.

Captain Israel is a comic by Arlen Schumer, and the first issue is a historical survey of Jewish history, suffering, pride and perseverance.


His backer is Stand With Us, and Israeli advocacy group.

While I stand on the “save the penis” side of the infant circumcision debate (simply because a baby cannot consent), the Foreskin Man comic has surely set that cause back with its ugly stereotypes and hate.

In other words, that prick had it coming.

Stand With Us
