Circumcision 'reduces HIV risk'

There was a similar study some decades ago that found that Jewish women' cervical cancer incidence was lower than the norm...conclusion was that circumcision did the trick...can't remember the reference now but I'll look for it. Sounds like propaganda to me.

There might be some truth in this in my opinion, circumcised men tend to be "cleaner" down there, and I know that women married to uncircumcised men are more prone to vaginal infections, and its a prominent question asked by many GP's when a woman comes in with a blazing infection, and the husband often also receive a script to clear up his bugs that he so freely passes along.

Sheesh... Sensitive much for the smite I got for posting my opinion? |-O

Care to discuss the horseshit and attempt to change my opinion?

Faerie, battle scars become you! ;)

Jacques, I notice with dismay that what is perhaps your most forceful point — viz. that tradition is not in itself a sufficient reason for perpetuating customs, especially harmful ones — does not resonate well if at all with others. It astounds me how individuals of an ostensibly sapient species can be so firmly bound by the grip of childhood indoctrination and programming.
