When read in context, yes.
Really? I can find plenty of online translations. Maybe not major dead tree translations, but getting those fixed even on minor errors takes decades. People expect the bible to be written the way they remember it even if that way doesn't turn out to be right.
Never mind that most modern translations are based on bad translations of the past rather than the original documents.
As for Paul, he condemned changing yourself from what you know to be true. And he was a sexist, sexphobic, bigoted misogynist. He's probably the last person you should be looking towards to advice on that front. He even admits that he doesn't understand anything sexual.
That and he's about four people most of which, including the passage you're talking about, were editted in long after his death.
