Whoops, Sorry Guys, Circumcision DOESN’T PREVENT AIDS TRANSMISSION

August 26, 2009

All you guys who got circumcised to help prevent AIDS, whoopsie, slight misrepresentation of the former data, maybe, kinda?  Looks like maybe that forecast came a little too soon, Son.

Circumcision “is not considered beneficial” in stopping the spread of HIV through gay sex, said Dr. Peter Kilmarx, of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

However, the CDC is still considering recommending it for other groups, including baby boys and high-risk heterosexual men.

Now, why circumcise baby boys when it doesn’t prevent the spread of AIDS in homosexual men?  Gee, the CDC seems backward on this too.  If it doesn’t stop the spread of AIDS among homosexuals, does the CDC hope that it might work to prevent AIDs transmission in vaginas without proof?  And why are baby boy penises on the chopping block even in the face of evidence that fails to support routine circumcision?  What does the CDC have against little boys’ penises?

Yahoo News published the following gross bias against homosexuality and baby boy penises, but I am not sure Mike Stobbe (the Medical Writer for the AP) meant to publish as much bias as he does:

Also, while HIV spreads primarily through heterosexual sex in Africa and some other parts of the world, in the United States it has mainly infected gay men. Only about 4 percent of U.S. men are gay, according to preliminary CDC estimates released at the conference this week. But they account for more than half of the new HIV infections each year.

Previous research has suggested circumcision doesn’t make a difference when anal sex is involved. The latest study, by CDC researchers, looked at nearly 4,900 men who had anal sex with an HIV-infected partner and found the infection rate, about 3.5 percent, was approximately the same whether the men were circumcised or not.

Government recommendations on circumcision are still being written and may not be final until next year, following public comment. CDC doctors and many experts believe there is a good argument for recommending that baby boys and heterosexual men at a higher risk for HIV be circumcised.

So, the good argument about circumcising baby boys is that don’t know whether or not they will engage in anal sex?  And since “only 4 percent of U.S. men are gay…But they account for more than half of the new HIV infections each year…” we should therefore circumcise babies and heterosexual men?  Hey, I know, why don’t we focus on the poor babies, because they are the only ones who have no choice and can’t fight it once it’s done.  Oh yeah, and they are easier to hold down:  after all, according to the CDC, the circumcision is for their own good, right? Just in case they might be gay, CDC says we should cut every baby’s penis when he’s young.
