I hope people can put two and two together on this one. Especially when you consider the profit margins made from offselling foreskins to pharmaceutical companies.
Like Giles said, there is no connection or association between foreskin and HIV/AIDS, nor is that correlation ever made. Being uncircumcised is believed to be a lot less hygienic, but I would not call it "disease riddled" under any circumstance, especially when the remarks about it being a lot less hygienic, and dirtier aren't exactly all that they're cracked up to be. If you think it's dirty, take a shower and you'll be just as clean as somebody who is circumcised.
