Parents Magazine...OH NO! - Page 5

post #81 of 83

How about involving HIV activists?

It would actually be very good if all the partners and families of circumcised men who have died of AIDS (the vast majority of males who have died in the US will have been circumcised) to write to every idiot magazine and newspaper telling them how stupid and irresponsible this media hype is.

It would be even better if they could start a campaign to say how ridiculous and dangerous it is to even hint that circumcision protects against HIV when clearly it doesn't in real life - WHY are all these thousands of people staying silent in the face of such blatant lying? Where are all the people who are campaigning and educating against HIV, WHY are they silent? Has anyone got the AAP onside here?

This is CRAZY, it's going to cost so many lives, in the States and everywhere else where genital mutilation is accepted and looking for a disease to "cure" - except this one is FATAL.

I was wondering what exactly the US rates of AIDS among circed and AIDS among intact men are. I mean, that would be the best way to solve this. A phone survey......Or a gallop poll. SOmething scientific. I mean seriously this is absurd. why don't people see that?

Treece the problem with that would be cultural more than anything, kwim? I don't think it'd truly be accurrate.

Daisy that's a great idea!!!!!

A&A for sure- I'm so glad I don't subscribe to their magazine :
