Yeah, I does kind of seem relevant, since the least stupid-sounding pro-RIC argument I've heard is, "Men in third-world African countries get AIDS a little less often if they were circ'd as adults; therefore, you should circ your American baby when he's a couple days/hours old."
Because, apparently, lots of people are getting HIV not because of evil, evil foreskins but because their caregivers are feeding them HIV-infected blood. I bet education about things like this could go a long way and be more effective the circumcision in these countries.
