Sheldon Brown often presents theoretic danger as real life threatening dangers.
"Imagine if so and so, and something extremely strange happens, then in very worst case scenario it could maybe be possible that this and that happens"
I think there's not a soul who has impaled his penis on a set of stem shifters.

That said, it's not the option I'd choose simply because I don't like the look of stem shifters. STI are really the best option imo, the only drawback they have is that they're not cheap. Once purchased and set up though they are great.

Disagree with the last comment. I DO know someone who had his scrotum torn open on some stem shifters.

In the words of Dirty Harry: Do you feel lucky?
