Dr Lazar Greenfield, president-elect of the American College of Surgeons, whose career came to a sudden end after he wrote a light-hearted Valentine’s Day piece for Surgery News on the health benefits for women of semen.

Read the whole thing. I recommend a new epithet for these people, "memholes."
