January 5, 2012 Radio Show Successful


My appearance on the Internet radio show "A Voice for Men" on January 5, 2012 went well.

I was on the show for about half an hour. We discussed in detail the forces that have been attempting to promote circumcision of African men as a supposed preventive of HIV, including the World Health Organization's effort to circumcise 28 million African men over the next four years. We discussed the history of circumcision in this country and explored reasons for its curious persistence. We also looked at the historical origins of medicalized circumcision and connections between intactivism and gender equity.The hosts were very well-informed and facilitated an effective program.

The show can be downloaded or played at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/avoiceformen/2012/01/06/circumcising-africa.
