This is not new news. The government has always known that condoms will not prevent AIDS, the virus is small enough to pass through the microscopic openings in the latex. I was told this back in 1984, by an epidemiologist who was brought to LA to study and track the epidemic there. He was warning me to double glove. He said that the gov't didn't want the public to panic, so they let the condom and latex glove recommendation go out.

This is an ages old rumor that has it's origins with the abstinence-is-the-only-answer fundamentalists. It was long ago proven to be utter nonsense.
