Harry Styles is now in possession of the poster penis for foreskin advocacy. However, while the One Direction singer does have a big, attention-grabbing name that will help draw attention to this cause, it’s possible that activist Glen Callender picked the wrong penis to try to save.
According to Noisey, Callender is the founder of the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (Can-FAP). His main goal is to prevent forced circumcision, and he wants guys who still possess that extra flap of flesh to know that they shouldn’t cop to pressure to get rid of it. Callender believes that Harry Styles is uncircumcised, and he wants the world to be aware of this.
“I think it’s important from a cultural point of view that we make it known and educate that Styles has an uncircumcised penis,” Callender said. “We have a lot of North American girls who are being conditioned from their respective cultures to say that foreskin is yucky and they don’t even understand that the young beautiful men they idolize have their penises intact.”
Callender’s source of info about Harry’s penis isn’t exactly trustworthy — his foreskin claim is based on an old National Enquirer story. The tabloid alleged that Taylor Swift dumped Harry Styles because he wouldn’t get his bits snipped. However, the only person who has talked about Harry’s tallywacker is actually his good friend, Ed Sheeran. As the Inquisitr previously reported, all Sheeran said about it was that “[Harry] definitely hasn’t got a little thing.”
Callender is protesting at a Taylor Swift concert in August, and he wants the singer to address the rumor about why she dumped Harry. If it proves to be untrue, he hopes that she will join his crusade against circumcision.
“It would actually be amazing if she could actually make a statement that it is a completely healthy, normal, and good thing for penises to be uncircumcised. She has a very powerful voice and I think it would make a huge difference in influencing and changing a lot of misconceptions about foreskin.”
Unfortunately for One Direction fans who will still find foreskin “yucky” no matter what Taylor Swift says, Glen Callender is pretty certain that most members of the band are still completely intact down there.
“Well, One Direction, of course, are all British except for I think one who is Irish and I’m quite confident most if not all of their c***s are intact and that’s what we want. I think a lot of their fans don’t even understand that these young beautiful men they idolize have all their penis intact so we have to educate them. That’s the point of all this. We have to go out and change these perceptions that foreskin is yucky and gross.”
One member of One Direction that Callender should be interested in talking to is Louis Tomlinson. Louis is about to become a father for the first time, and, if he has a son, he’ll have to decide whether or not he wants to give his child the big snip. According to the Telegraph, a large majority of male babies remain uncircumcised in the U.K. However, Louis Tomlinson’s baby mama, Briana Jungwirth, is American, and circumcision is common in the U.S.
Do you think Callender will help save men’s foreskins by connecting his cause to Harry Styles?
