A lot of men in Africa are going against their traditional practices of circumcision as well. DH showed me a video of an African IDK rap? band and they have a lot of songs against this practice. It is a mixed race band as well, all African but some white men and women and some black. It is mixed with some people who grew up in tribes and others who grew up in a modern society (south Africa), but they are all against it. They do the songs in English and their native language (I forget what it was...) so even a country who is supposedly "benefiting" from circumcision has the same issues as America. Some people know it's wrong and don't want parts of their body cut off, while others just keep forcing it.

This report on Uganda and HPV is from the same Wawer/Gray team that in 2009 reported that circumcising a Ugandan man made him 50% MORE likely to infect his partner with deadly HIV.
The Gardasil vaccine made headlines last year when there were some adverse outcomes suspected. Even if EVERY person who died within a year of the vaccine dose died DUE TO the vaccine, infant circumcision is still 27 times deadlier per patient.
