* Nearly half are unaware of their infection-CDC
* CDC calls for renewed HIV prevention efforts
(Adds CDC interview, other comments)
By Julie Steenhuysen
CHICAGO, Sept 23 (Reuters)- Nearly one in five gay and bisexual men in 21 major U.S. cities are infected with HIV, and nearly half of them do not know it, U.S. health officials said on Thursday.
Young men, and especially young black men, are least likely to know if they are infected with HIV, according to a study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"We need to reinvigorate our response to preventing HIV among gay and bisexual men," Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, said in a telephone interview.
"We can't allow HIV to continue its devastating toll among gay and bisexual men, and in particular, among young black men."
Mermin's comments echoed an AIDS policy rolled out in July by the White House that asked states and federal agencies to find ways to cut new HIV infections by 25 percent.[IDnN13274350]
Researchers at the CDC studied 8,153 men who have sex with men in 21 U.S. cities. The men were taking part in the 2008 National HIV Behavioral Surveillance System, which looked at prevalence and awareness of the human immunodeficiency virus or HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
Overall, they found that 19 percent of gay men are infected with HIV.
The study found that 28 percent of gay black men infected with HIV, compared with 18 percent of Hispanic men and 16 percent of white men.
Black men in the study were also least likely to be aware of their infection, with 59 percent unaware of their infection compared with 46 percent of Hispanic men and 26 percent of white men.
Age also plays a role. Among 18 to 29-year-old men, 63 percent did not know they were infected with HIV, compared with 37 percent of men aged 30 and older, the team reported in the CDC's weekly report on death and disease.
The CDC recommends that gay and bisexual men of all ages get an HIV test each year, and men at highest risk -- those who have multiple sex partners or use drugs during sex -- get tested every three to six months.
"This alarming new data provides further evidence that prevention efforts for gay men have not been adequate to meet the growing epidemic and should be dramatically scaled up," said Carl Schmid of the nonprofit AIDS Institute.

What do you expect when you stick a penis in a hole with human waste in it. Then feces get up inside the penis hole. Humans were not meant to do that! How can gay people say that is natural? It serves ya'll right! The sad thing is that this disease has spread to normal people because of bi-sexuals. If people would do like God wanted them to do ( Monogomy) then none of this would have happened. Go ahead and mock me and say that I'm a caveman and a hater but you can't defend that lifestyle no matter how hard you try. It just can't be done.

AIDS and HIV originated from things far removed from homosexuality. The reason why it spreads so much in the gay community is that many homosexuals do not feel the need to use protection.
So I guess I won't call you a hater, I'll just call you an idiot.
And I can defend homosexuality all day. I cannot sway your opinion but I can defend it.

okay so how does putting a penis is a vagina any different, talking about waste. urine is waste too isn't it?
#5 Sep 24, 2010
Well, if I contracted any deadly diseases from sticking my tongue in a vagina, I would have been dead, probably, more than 70 years ago.

I cant believe you are just that ignorant.

AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is the final and most serious stage of HIV disease, which causes severe damage to the immune system.
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
AIDS is the fifth leading cause of death among people aged 25 - 44 in the United States, down from number one in 1995. About 25 million people worldwide have died from this infection since the start of the epidemic, and in 2006, there were approximately 40 million people around the world living with HIV/AIDS.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) causes AIDS. The virus attacks the immune system and leaves the body vulnerable to a variety of life-threatening infections and cancers.
Common bacteria, yeast, parasites, and viruses that ordinarily do not cause serious disease in people with healthy immune systems can cause fatal illnesses in people with AIDS.
HIV has been found in saliva, tears, nervous system tissue and spinal fluid, blood, semen (including pre-seminal fluid, which is the liquid that comes out prior to ejaculation), vaginal fluid, and breast milk. However, only blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk generally transmit infection to others.
The virus can be transmitted:
Through sexual contact -- including oral, vaginal, and anal sex
Through blood -- via blood transfusions (now extremely rare in the US) or needle sharingFrom mother to child -- a pregnant woman can transmit the virus to her fetus through their shared blood circulation, or a nursing mother can transmit it to her baby in her breast milk
Other transmission methods are rare and include accidental needle injury, artificial insemination with infected donated semen, and organ transplantation with infected organs.
HIV infection is not spread by casual contact such as hugging, by touching items previously touched by a person infected with the virus, during participation in sports, or by mosquitoes.
It is NOT transmitted to a person who DONATES blood or organs. Those who donate organs are never in direct contact with those who receive them. Likewise, a person who donates blood is not in contact with the person receiving it. In all these procedures, sterile needles and instruments are used.
However, HIV can be transmitted to a person RECEIVING blood or organs from an infected donor. To reduce this risk, blood banks and organ donor programs screen donors, blood, and tissues thoroughly.
People at highest risk for getting HIV include:
Injection drug users who share needles
Infants born to mothers with HIV who didn't receive HIV therapy during pregnancyPeople engaging in unprotected sex
People who received blood transfusions or clotting products between 1977 and 1985 (prior to when screening for the virus became standard practice)Sexual partners of those who participate in high-risk activities (such as injuection drug use or anal sex)
AIDS begins with HIV infection. People infected with HIV may have no symptoms for 10 years or longer, but they can still transmit the infection to others during this symptom-free period. Meanwhile, if the infection is not detected and treated, the immune system gradually weakens, and AIDS develops.
Acute HIV infection progresses over time (usually a few weeks to months) to asymptomatic HIV infection (no symptoms) and then to early symptomatic HIV infection. Later, it progresses to AIDS (advanced HIV infection with CD4 T-cell count below 200 cells/mm3 ).
Almost all people infected with HIV, if not treated, will develop AIDS. There is a small group of patients who develop AIDS very slowly, or never at all. These patients are called nonprogressors, and many seem to have a genetic difference that prevents the virus from damaging their immune system.

It spread in the human population through gay sex. Go ahead and look stupid. I'll just sit here and laugh when you and all of the other gay men have to wear diapers when you get older because your anus is stretched out and can't hold the poop in anymore! How can you defend guys who feel the need to stick their penis in a butt hole filled with crap? Tell me. Is that normal sexual behaviour? You people try to come up with excuses and call us idiots and all kind of vile names because deep down, you know you are wrong. So you get angry when you are confronted with the truth.

A man is not sticking his penis directly into the urethra during sex. Yes it is close but it is still not directly in the hole as it is when the penis is inserted into the rectum. Urine is certainly human waste but it is not as vile infectious as feces. For the record, it is unhealthy for men and women to participate in anal sex too. That is an unnatural form of sex.
Why is it that a man and woman can be virgins when they meet, and have monogomous vaginal sex with each other for years and never get an STD. It's because that is the only natural form of sex. However oral sex is practiced here with my wife. LOL I'm not a prude! We don't get brown on the pole though! I don't see how the smell of crap would turn anybody on! Would somebody help me out on that one? If I fart in public and a gay guy is around, is he gonna get horny? I can't even fart at Wal-Mart anymore. Dang!

Me too man! I think gay sex is wrong but I love doin the lickety split!! My wife took out an insurance policy on my tongue.

Uhm I said it spread through the gay population through sex. You are so f****** stupid you don't even have reading comprehension skills. I said the ORIGIN (meaning the cause of the virus, i.e. the original conception point in Africa) was far removed from homosexuality however it was first a problem in America due to homosexual promiscuity (because of the feeling that some homosexuals have that protection is unnecessary). Wow didn't think I was going to have to go that far into detail to explain a simple statement to you. You really are a moron.
And I think you are the one that has vile stuff to say. Sounds like you take homosexuality a little too far to heart. Maybe suppressing some emotions?
#12 Sep 24, 2010
Another example of you shoving your blatent heterosexual claims. You're that effeminate guy at the party saying I'M NOT GAY I'M NOT GAY I LOVE PU**Y SEE I LOVE IT.
Get over your complex man. Gay or straight you are a VILE creature and have issues. And what the hell, STD's are spread through promiscuity not poop. I mean yeah you can contract it through feces if that guy bangs some other guy with an STD but if two gay guys sleep with only each other for ten years THAT's not the reason they're contracting any STD's. Do a couple Google searches and learn something for once.

No its not everyone Knows HOMOSEXUALS staerted AIDS just because the liberal media controls the airwaves means we believe the Homo propaganda. You are right about one issue the homosexual is a promiscuos mentally ill deviate. most are pedophiles also. I am not religious but I hate the way Homosexuals attacked the church to promote gay marriage and make it a Phoney civil rights issue . HOMOSEXUALALITY is a mental illness. Everyone needs to read historical medical journals for the 80's and before on homosexuals. The propaganda and homosexual referencing and promoting this sickness in Hollywood and the media occurred when the far far liberal left and homosexuals took over Hollywood and the media. look at Europe and you will see what America will be like in twenty years under A-Hole Obama and the far left. Europe is a lost immoral shithole and will be a Muslim continent in 50myears because far left liberals and homosexuals control the institutions of Europe. If I was religious i would say AIDS is Gods little miracle to these sick self destructive low lifes.

I didn't question the orgin of aids stupid. Read into the context a little more instead letting your liberal temper flare up and blur your reasoning skills like usual. I said it spread within the human population through gay sex. I never said it started with gays. Don't put words on the page that I did not write! In other words gay men were the reason HIV spread rapidly in the human population. Then bi-sexual men spread it to the hetro population. AND you can't get HIV from contact with feces.I never said you could. YOU DID. I said " What do you expect when you stick a penis in a hole with human waste in it. Then feces get up inside the penis hole. Humans were not meant to do that!" I may have implied that, and for that I apologize. That was not my intention. I meant to say that when you stick it up the tale then you get crap on it. That opens the door for in fections and OTHER STDS. It also can rip open the anus and allow bllod contact which DOES transmit HIV. Read a little more before you shoot your mouth off!

Alright so we're on the same page. How come in your original context you said:
"It spread in the human population through gay sex. Go ahead and look stupid. I'll just sit here and laugh when you and all of the other gay men have to wear diapers when you get older because your anus is stretched out and can't hold the poop in anymore!"
When I originally stated:
"The reason why it spreads so much in the gay community is that many homosexuals do not feel the need to use protection. "
Reading comprehension fail. And how come just because I called you out you get off on calling me a liberal? You don't know who I voted for.
You have a sick fascination with anus stretching too. So vile.

This town is full of bisexuals both male and female and many of them married, everyone better watch out!
#17 Sep 29, 2010
what's wrong with your male organs, don't they work?
#18 Sep 29, 2010
so true, the wrath of God will come down some day as he did with sodom and gomorah.
some are judges and attorneys and law officers . they will even lie for each other. feds truly need to come in to see what happens with these in crimes and no justice any more.
it is sickening to God too! God's wrath is coming. some sit on the stand with judges. and in churches.
They are mocking God .

You don't marry for perverted sex and to go with others , vows before GOD are made between two only and the opposite sex not the same.
The married bed between a man and woman is not defiled , but all others are, that is for a married woman and man to have a open marriage as sodom and gomorrah.
some things do not wash off, it is like playing russian roulette with a gun.
a man and woman only! vows are for life for 2 opposites in marriage. and true till death they part.
