...and people being (or continue) to believe it.


This article is so poorly written is is almost absurd.  It would be funny if people wouldn't continue to believe it.

I can understand the desperation that they must feel to do anything to prevent HIV. I do, however, feel sadness for all of these scared men being misled on how to prevent infection.

In the article, they still emphasize condom use as necessary. It makes me wonder if there are any studies that indicate a lower HIV infection rate among circumcised men who always use a condom.

I highly doubt, because it would blow their theory out of the water.
