American Circumcision now on Netflix. Watch it!! It's Good.
An interview on Icelandic radio that aired this morning (27 April 2018) with Evan Roman, Íris Björg Þorvaldsdóttir of Intact Iceland and Magnus Smith, also of Intact Iceland. The English portion of the interview begins at 1:00 minute.
It has an actual function, natures vacuum pressure release mechanism. How teachers are allowed to teach sex ed and not know basic male biology is beyond sad its evil. I respect you for what you do thank you.
I respect you guys, its time people start caring about male biology it's sick to me that nobody gets the actual function .
Christian , Jew and muslim alike will in their turn learn to yield to the rights of the child for their only is to be found their divine mandate,
