^^ There are studies to support that circumcision prevents HIV ^^

The same authors you are now quoting about HPV (Wawer/Gray) reported in 2009 that circumcising Ugandan men made them 50% MORE likely to infect their partners with HIV.

The same author (Bailey) of the largest HIV study you just linked reported in 2010 that circumcised and intact men had HIV at the same rate after all.

It's not just you cherry picking. The study authors mentioned went on extensive media blitzes every time they got a result promoting genitcal cutting and they just lay low when they publish a contradictory finding.
