You didn't read the post, did you?
Such a shame.
Here's another with a pie chart for visual learners.
http://www.returnofkings.com/3882/the-truth-a...
FTA: "...All told, some 73% of HIV infections are accounted for by men who have sex with men and intravenous drug users, groups that comprise less than 5% of the US population.
...
HIV and AIDS are very rare among straight, drug-free whites and Asians. Hispanic and black straight men are at higher risk, but still vastly below that of homosexual men and intravenous drug users. Comprehensive data on how HIV is being transmitted among heterosexuals is not available in the CDC report. But you can be sure that much of it is occurring because of people sleeping with high risk groups (a woman sleeping with a promiscuous homosexual man, or a man having unprotected anal sex with a heroin addict). Research has consistently shown that even among street hookers, HIV is rare to non-existent so long as the hookers were not using intravenous drugs.
Among men who don’t sleep with men and don’t do intravenous drugs, the prevalence of HIV is about 0.1%, while the comparable figure for gay men is 16%."
Can you pull up some stats from a website that doesn't pride itself on being called "the most sexist website on the planet?"

Also, sex education, and an end to homophobia is key here. It's the only thing that can work.

Why people be shamed for being gay? Just because you have a problem with it? I thought alpha males didn't let anything shake them. I guess you're pretty beta then.

This article is BS. Marriage is a legal term within the US that attaches to it over 1,000 different rights that cross all sectors of public life. Civil unions aren't recognized by federal government, so they don't even begin to cover half the the rights given by the word marriage. Also, I like how your article omitted these parts of the New York Times Article:
That consent is key.“With straight people, it’s called affairs or cheating,” said Colleen Hoff, the study’s principal investigator,“but with gay people it does not have such negative connotations.”
Oops...you forgot a the sentence preceding your first quote:

The Gay Couples Study has followed 556 male couples for three years — about 50% of those surveyed have sex outside their relationships, with the knowledge and approval of their partners.

[followed by your quote:]

That consent is key.“With straight people, it’s called affairs or cheating,” said Colleen Hoff, the study’s principal investigator,“but with gay people it does not have such negative connotations.”

****

Fifty percent [50%] married [heterosexual] couples do NOT "have sex outside their [marriage], WITH THE KNOWLEDGE AND APPROVAL OF THEIR PARTNERS."

Not a chance, Broseph.

The original article remains on-target.
Same-sex "marriage" is a farce.

Then again, no one can expect those who publicly boast of their aberrant sexual behaviors to exhibit any moral compunction about infidelity in marriage. No, no...they would remain proud of that behavior as well.

Sick.

All from things brought about from sex education. Something you oppose.

"A large body of research has shown that the long-term decline in teen pregnancy, birth and abortion rates was driven primarily by improved use of contraception among teens. And while there was also a decrease during the 1990s in the overall proportion of females aged 15–19 who were sexually experienced, there has been almost no change in the proportion in recent years. Continuing decreases in teen pregnancy more recently may be driven by increased use of the most effective contraceptive methods as well as dual method use. In sum, teens appear to be making the decision to be more effective contraceptive users, and their actions are paying off in lower pregnancy, birth and abortion rates."

The stats are from the CDC. You just don't like them.

And from the same article:

"A study of sub-Saharan African heterosexual couples where one partner had HIV found that typically only one in 900 acts of unprotected sex would transmit the virus. Stanford School of Medicine’s Dr. Mark Holodniy, when asked how heterosexual men contract HIV, responded “I suspect that some of it relates to whether these men are truly hetero or bisexual, and whether injection drug use is a risk factor.” Provided you are not having sex with men, intravenous drug users, or women who sleep with such people, the risk of getting HIV is infinitesimally small."

For a less biased analysis:

http://thechart.blogs.cnn.com/2012/04/10/u-s-...

The teenage birth rate in the United States has fallen to a record low in the seven decades since such statistics were last collected.

A report released Tuesday by the National Center for Health Statistics showed the teenage birth rate for American teenagers fell 9% from 2009 to 2010. The national level, 34.3 teenage births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15-19, is the lowest since 1946.

The rates dropped across all racial and ethnic groups, and nearly all states. Experts suggested that the numbers may mean more teens are delaying sex or using contraception, representing gains for both abstinence-only and contraceptive education programs.

Teenage pregnancy is linked with several health and social issues such as poverty, out-of-wedlock births and education, as well as developmental issues, welfare and physical and mental health issues for the child.

“This nation has made truly extraordinary progress in reducing both rates of teen pregnancies and teen births,” said Bill Albert, the chief program officer for The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy.“It is not a stretch to say that this is one of the nation’s great success stories of the past decades.”

Babies born to teens between 15 to 19 numbered 367,752 in 2010, compared with 409,802 in 2009.

Birth rates peaked most recently in 1991. The teen birth rate that year was 61.8 live births for each 1,000 women. Had that rate persisted, there would have been about 3.4 million additional births to teenagers from 1992 to 2010.

The data from the report, which was derived from birth certificates, doesn't pinpoint why the teenage birth rate has decreased over the last few decades, said Brody Hamilton, an author of the report and a statistician at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“With teens, there are a lot of factors,” he said.“The economy is cited for overall downturn in the number of births. With teens, there are public policy programs directly addressing this teen pregnancy issue. It’s a mixture of things involved. We cannot tease that out with the data set that we have.”

A report released last year found that the rate of teenagers having sex decreased slightly, following an overall trend of decline in teenage sex in the last 20 years. Recent data has found increased use of contraception, such as condoms and hormonal birth control.

“These trends may have contributed to the recent birth rate declines,” wrote Hamilton and a co-author.

The short answer is that teens appear to be delaying sex or using contraception.

Despite the gains in teen pregnancy prevention, the U.S. still lags behind other industrialized countries. For example, Lithuania (17 per 1,000), Poland (16) and Canada (14) have lower teen pregnancy births than the United States, according to the UN Demographic Yearbook.

“It’s still the case that the U.S. is an outlier when it comes to teen pregnancy,” Albert said.

...And over the years, controversy has ensued between those who advocate abstinence-only programs and supporters who want more contraception education.

“Over the past decade in particular, there has been a growing number of sex education programs that have been carefully evaluated and have shown it can change teen behavior, get them to delay sex or use contraceptives.” Albert said.

The lower teenage birth rate is a duel victory for both sides, he said, because sex education varies so much from one community to another.

“It’s a combination of less sex and more contraception. Both sides should declare victory,” Albert said.“I would resist the temptation for a magic bullet to explain the declines in teen pregnancies. I suspect it’s a rich brew of reasons why the rates are going down.”

Of course they don't. Over half of divorced heterosexuals had sex outside of their marriages, but did so WITHOUT the permission of their partners. The consent was the difference. 55% of marriages end because of infidelity. That was the whole point of be bringing back those quotes the author omitted. Heterosexuals and homosexuals tend to have sex outside of marriages. The homosexuals are just more honest about and have formed ways so they're all happier about it. Also, just because people don't think about things like you do doesn't mean they're immoral or "sick." You're nothing special.

Moral people are never happy about infidelity.

This arrangement is merely another sign of the psychological disorder ruling the behaviors of same-sex practitioners. And it raises the all-important question -- why would same-sex practitioners seek a "marriage" commitment with someone to whom they have no intention of remaining committed?

The answer: to destroy the very concept of marriage and attempt to erase all gender roles and differences.

Our society needs less immorality -- not more.
Our society needs less chaos -- not more.
Our society needs less Progressives -- damned sure.

It's not infidelity, because infidelity involves the breaking of the established rules of the relationship. These marriages are open marriages, so that doesn't happen. Also, just because it's not your thing doesn't automatically make it "immoral." You're not the end all be all of morality. You're just some random, angry schmuck. Not everyone believes in your bible.

AIDS would not exist absent aberrant behaviors.
Sadly, you encourage them.
And they have brought the world another "New AIDS":

http://beforeitsnews.com/2012/2013/04/lgv-hom...

Dangerous sex causing this LGV sickness includes anal sex without a condom, ingesting the drug crystal meth anally and “fisting.”
Very gross. Warning. Signs of sickness marked in bold.

‘New AIDS’ Spreading Among Homosexual Men
LGV cases in U.S., Canadian Cities Point to Spike in Anonymous Sex Acts

In an eerily similar way to how HIV/AIDS was first spread, a heretofore rare sexually transmitted disease some are calling the “new AIDS” is making its way through the male homosexual community in Canada and the U.S.

According to a report in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, lymphogranuloma venereum, or LGV, has been identified in 22 homosexual and bisexual men in Canada in recent months, all of whom practice risky sexual behavior – including anal sex without a condom, ingesting the drug crystal meth anally and “fisting.”…

(….ingesting the drug crystal meth anally! Christ O’Mighty! These dudes are sick!)

….Six cases have been identified in Boston, Mass., reports the Associated Press, while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed LGV cases in San Francisco, Atlanta, and New York City in the last few months.

LGV is spread in similar ways as is HIV/AIDS – among men who have anonymous sex in bathhouses and via near-anonymous encounters arranged through Internet chat groups, reports the Toronto Globe and Mail.

The medical report notes LGV is a bacterial infection and, unlike AIDS, is easily treatable with antibiotics. Symptoms include small painless lesions on the genitals and swollen glands.

Because LGV creates sores, carriers are more likely to spread HIV because bodily fluid is more likely to get into the bloodstream.

“This is an important public-health and clinical challenge,” Thomas Wong, M.D., director of the community-acquired-infections division of the Public Health Agency of Canada said, according to the Globe and Mail.

Wong says the growth of LGV points to a “safer-sex fatigue,” the popularity of party drugs that strip away inhibitions and the increasingly common practice of anonymous sex.

“LGV isn’t the only sexually transmitted disease we’re seeing. The number of cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia are all increasing,” Wong said.

A form of the STD chlamydia, LGV if left untreated, can cause swelling of the genitals and rectum, and can lead to meningitis, encephalitis and even death.

Though the disease is common in the tropics, it didn’t appear in the industrialized world until 2003, when it infected a group of sex tourists in the Netherlands. LGV then spread to Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, Britain, the United States and Canada.

One LGV patient at Boston’s Fenway Community Health clinic said he probably acquired the disease while visiting Brazil.

The Canadian report noted none of the men infected with LGV in Canada had travelled abroad recently, but all had the same strain of the disease that is circulating in the Netherlands.

Those infected in Canada engaged in “Internet partnering,” frequented bathhouses, or had sex at rave parties, the report stated.

”We hadn’t seen an LGV case for years,” Dr. Alfred DeMaria, Massachusetts director of communicable disease control, told AP.”It’s definitely a sign of unsafe sex, and that’s a concern in terms of other sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. Now, I think we’re at the point that people need to pay attention to it.”

Just as a same-sex partnership does not meet the definition of marriage, an "open marriage" does not either.

Your demand to refer to them as such does not, in fact, make them such.

"Marriage… is the civil status of one man and one woman united in law for life, for the discharge to each other and the community of the duties legally incumbent on those whose association is founded on the distinction of sex."

How is it a misuse? Because it isn't used to make kids? Newsflash: Many people don't have sex to just have kids anymore. Sex is about way more than having kids. Also, different people live in different ways. Sorry life isn't a Norman Rockwell painting. Your Way =/= The Moral, Perfect Way. And they're what now?

AIDS would not exist absent aberrant behaviors.
Sadly, you encourage them.
And they have brought the world another "New AIDS":

Dangerous sex causing this LGV sickness includes anal sex without a condom, ingesting the drug crystal meth anally and “fisting.”
Very gross. Warning. Signs of sickness marked in bold.
‘New AIDS’ Spreading Among Homosexual Men
LGV cases in U.S., Canadian Cities Point to Spike in Anonymous Sex Acts
In an eerily similar way to how HIV/AIDS was first spread, a heretofore rare sexually transmitted disease some are calling the “new AIDS” is making its way through the male homosexual community in Canada and the U.S.
According to a report in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, lymphogranuloma venereum, or LGV, has been identified in 22 homosexual and bisexual men in Canada in recent months, all of whom practice risky sexual behavior – including anal sex without a condom, ingesting the drug crystal meth anally and “fisting.”…
(….ingesting the drug crystal meth anally! Christ O’Mighty! These dudes are sick!)
….Six cases have been identified in Boston, Mass., reports the Associated Press, while the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed LGV cases in San Francisco, Atlanta, and New York City in the last few months.
LGV is spread in similar ways as is HIV/AIDS – among men who have anonymous sex in bathhouses and via near-anonymous encounters arranged through Internet chat groups, reports the Toronto Globe and Mail.
The medical report notes LGV is a bacterial infection and, unlike AIDS, is easily treatable with antibiotics. Symptoms include small painless lesions on the genitals and swollen glands.
Because LGV creates sores, carriers are more likely to spread HIV because bodily fluid is more likely to get into the bloodstream.
“This is an important public-health and clinical challenge,” Thomas Wong, M.D., director of the community-acquired-infections division of the Public Health Agency of Canada said, according to the Globe and Mail.
Wong says the growth of LGV points to a “safer-sex fatigue,” the popularity of party drugs that strip away inhibitions and the increasingly common practice of anonymous sex.
“LGV isn’t the only sexually transmitted disease we’re seeing. The number of cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia are all increasing,” Wong said.
A form of the STD chlamydia, LGV if left untreated, can cause swelling of the genitals and rectum, and can lead to meningitis, encephalitis and even death.
Though the disease is common in the tropics, it didn’t appear in the industrialized world until 2003, when it infected a group of sex tourists in the Netherlands. LGV then spread to Belgium, France, Germany, Sweden, Britain, the United States and Canada.
One LGV patient at Boston’s Fenway Community Health clinic said he probably acquired the disease while visiting Brazil.
The Canadian report noted none of the men infected with LGV in Canada had travelled abroad recently, but all had the same strain of the disease that is circulating in the Netherlands.
Those infected in Canada engaged in “Internet partnering,” frequented bathhouses, or had sex at rave parties, the report stated.
”We hadn’t seen an LGV case for years,” Dr. Alfred DeMaria, Massachusetts director of communicable disease control, told AP.”It’s definitely a sign of unsafe sex, and that’s a concern in terms of other sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. Now, I think we’re at the point that people need to pay attention to it.”
You didn't answer my question. Do you know any gays?
