What other men? If a man has sex with a man he's either gay or bisexual.

Amazing. The gay male population is estimated a 4%. This means that :

12.6 million gay/bisexual men are responsible for 75% of new cases.
The other 301.3 million are responsible for 25%.
This is mind boggling. HIV figures are about the same.

I said men that have sex with men. I'm not talking about men who stimulate their own prostate or have women stimulate their prostate. I'm referring to men who have sex with men. And again, men who have sex with men are gay or bisexual. Straight men do not have sex with men. Why is that so hard for you to understand?

The only thing that's mind boggling is that even the threat of contracting a fatal sexually transmitted disease wasn't enough to get people to simply wear a condom.

I remember when herpes was considered the worst possible thing ever because you had it for life, and people STILL didn't wear condoms.

Then came HIV, and 30+ years later too many men STILL aren't wearing condoms.

Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Hepatitis C, Herpes, HPV, and HIV.

Still not enough reason to wear a condom?

Sorry, but at this point you deserve whatever you get.

Correct. And I emphasize your last sentence. The overwhelming majority of HIV and AIDS cases today are gay and bisexual men. But the liberals and queers will lie and say that's not true. The CDC says it is true.

Who are you to say straight men don't have sex with men?

Gay or bi or straight are just self-identification labels.

If someone who self-identifies as straight has sex with men, they're still straight.

THEY identify their sexual orientation, not YOU.

Because some find it pleasurable.

According to the article, nearly HALF of those who got syphilis last year were already HIV positive.

Hmmm, I detect a pattern of poor decision making...

Actually it's about 60% of new HIV cases are among MSM. That's not what I'd consider an "overwhelming majority", but considering the nature of sexually transmitted diseases and HIV in particular, it's not surprising that a disease which started in the US in primarily gay men remains primarily in the gay male community.

Gay men tend to have sex primarily with gay men; straight men tend to have sex primarily with straight women. Which is why in Africa where HIV began primarily in the heterosexual community, it remains primarily in the heterosexual community. It's the nature of sexually transmitted diseases.

It is an overwhelming majority when you consider the estimate for MSM is 4%.
4% responsible for 60%.
96% responsible for 40%.
Then one has to consider where/how the 96% got HIV to begin with. It can be traced back to an infected gay or bisexual somewhere along the line.

So if a man only has sex with men and not women but he identifies as straight then he's straight. Yeah that makes sense. The ridiculousness of the liberal mind never ceases to amze me. People are defined by what they do, not what they say.

A GAY MAN is needed to give a straight man an anal orgasm. Nobody else can do it

16,500 people with HIV die in America every year; mostly from old age or natural causes
43,500 people die in AUTO accidents every year in America
.
So HIV is more than twice as safe as AUTO

I see you weren't a math fan.
Almost everyone drives. Only 4% are gay or bisexual men.

In 2011 there were 253,108,389 registered vehicles on out roads.
