You're really pathetic. Not only does this have NOTHING to do with the story at hand, but these same diseases are all very prevalent in the straight community. So, it's obvious you cannot follow a thought, stay on topic, or even make rational comments.

hmmm let's see...
a queer goes to a gay bar to pick up some other perverted queer to suck off or get his bung-hole drilled out... but he's worried about dying from Ricin?
What's worse AIDS or Ricin? At least with Ricin you get put out of you misery quickly!
Hmmm let's see... some straight goes to a bar to pick up a stranger to do whatever with and picks up diseases. Or better yet, the preacher goes to the men's room to get sucked off. The knife cuts both ways.
It's really amazing the amount of ignorance in this world.

I think Topix might need to inform the FBI about our friend obsessed Bob. He just might be the letter writer. He lives in the right area, and the way he is spamming the message boards here, he obviously has mental problems. Topix can trace him through his ISP address.

Jack, you are just a common troll, and such a coward that you not only hide behind the anonimity of the internet, you are too afraid to even become a member or show your real ISP location. Who cares what you say?

It is a fact that gays have a very high rate of STD's like,
1. Anal Cancer
2. Chlamydia trachomatis
3. Cryptosporidium
4. Giardia lamblia
5. Herpes simplex virus
6. Human immunodeficiency virus
7. Human papilloma virus
8. Isospora belli
9. Microsporidia
10. Gonorrhea
11. Viral hepatitis types B & C
12. Syphilis
Bob is right, so ahead and call the FBI loser. He is simply stating the facts ! Ricin is the last thing that gays have to worry about.
And as I've said before, the straight community gets these diseases at the same rate. Unless you can cite a specific MEDICAL source, such as the CDC, that shows these diseases are ONLY prevalent in the gay community, your comment holds no water.
This would be the same as me saying "White Christian women get breast cancer". While this may be true, the comment is misleading. It's inferring ONLY white Christian women get breast cancer when we know this is not the case. Your comment is misleading in the exact same way.
Now go ahead and copy/paste it again. You know you want to.

No one will deny these diseases exist in the gay community and that gay men should take more responsibility for disease control, but they also exist to a great extent in the straight community. Blaming the gay community for them is doing a great disservice to the straight community, who think they can't get sick because those are only gay diseases. You are promoting a lie and you know it! Not that you really care who gets sick, you just want a weapon to try to make gays the bad guys because you so need to feel better than someone else, ANYONE else, because you are so miserable with your own lives!

Here are some things from the CDC to think about:

To date, there are no confirmed cases of female-to-female sexual transmission of HIV in the United States database (K. McDavid, CDC, oral communication, March 2005).

Even though blacks (including African Americans) account for about 13% of the US population, they account for about half (49%) of the people who get HIV and AIDS. For African Americans and other blacks, HIV/AIDS is a leading cause of death.

Since HIV/AIDS in MSM was first diagnosed 1981, gay and bisexual men have been leaders in dealing with the challenges of the epidemic. Gay organizations and activists, through their work, have contributed greatly to many of the guidelines for prevention, treatment, and the care of people living with HIV/AIDS.

CDC estimates that approximately 19 million new infections occur each year, almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24.
WAIT, there's not that many gays!

Individuals who are infected with STDs are at least two to five times more likely than uninfected individuals to acquire HIV infection if they are exposed to the virus through sexual contact. In addition, if an HIV-infected individual is also infected with another STD, that person is more likely to transmit HIV through sexual contact than other HIV-infected persons.

BUT THAT IS NOT THE TOPIC OF THIS THREAD! And you will be reported to Topix for spamming.

Why do you insist on spreading lies? There is nothing "gay" about any of these medical conditions. A disease does not discriminate. It does not care who, or how it infects a person. It does not care about that person's sexuality. It, much like yourself, does not think.

You failed to mention Bad breath?
As for all the rest I'm sure you know that STD's are an equal opportunity offender--It is true that abstinence can protect you from all the little bugs but at the same time, even straight people need to live.
I know a fellow at my church that is HIV positive and he is in my opinion a better person than most. I wouldn't worry too much about what others are doing.
We all are free to do whatever we please, we need only face the consequences.
