You're simply removed from reality. What really does happen is that str8 men violently rape women at endemic levels. If sexual abuse concerned you so then you'd be defaming str8 men by your "logic."

So it's only about your psycho sexual problems, nothing more, certainly nothing rational.

Hey lying filth fer jeesus, I missed your reply, which would certainly for any Christian include an apology for bearing false witness.

Why don't you post the total deaths from AIDS since the early 80s until now for Africa, and then for the US?

You stupid, fundie bigot.

" 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. Even for someone who contracts HIV through heterosexual contact, there’s a good chance she got it from a bisexual man or a needle drug addict.
To give you a firmer idea of how the risk compares between groups, I divided the prevalence of HIV among all groups and divided them by the prevalence among sober straight white men. For example, a man who has sex with men is 700 to 800 times more likely to have HIV than a sober straight white man, the reference group. "
Let's get a little perspective ...

Listen fundie freeek, the numbers of total AIDS deaths of heterosexuals to those of homosexuals worldwide is not even close.
They are in this country. M/M sex is the leading cause of the epidemic here.
Worldwide (Africa) people got the disease from eating infected monkey meat so they could avoid starving. It's different here in this country where gays are supposedly educated.

More likely they were bitten while trapping monkeys.

Let's get some perspective here.

You're so very sick.

No, AIDS is transmitted overwhelmingly by unprotected, vag i nal intercourse in Africa. You just can't even stand to think about Africa in the worldwide stats because of your racism and your eagerness to lie about glbt people.

The disease is overwhelmingly one afflicting heterosexuals. None of you dissembling, fundie trash has apologized to jeesus for all you lies; I am sure you should burn in eternal hellfires...if only they existed.

By your "logic," you really should be defaming heterosexuals for AIDS. And str8 men as sexual predators for all the rapes of women.

Even in the US the correlates of race, class and age figure as strongly as sexual orientation. And most of the male AIDS sufferers these days in the US don't even identify as gay.

But you stupid, uneducated, christianist bigots don't do facts. Ever.

Many of those heterosexuals were BORN with HIV after their fathers raped their mothers after getting HIV from other MEN. Who are you helping with this attitude? You certainly aren't helping gays who need to face reality about HIV. Young gay men are not invincible, far from it. If they listen to you and convince themselves that they don't have to worry about it because AIDS is a "heterosexual disease," then they are even more likely to avoid steps to protect themselves. Is that really what you are after here? Dumb a**.

Is there ANY proof of your demographic breakdown of the stats?

And yet a large percentage of the population does just that. Every unwanted pregnancy starts that way. Every case of Herpes begins that way. Every STD begins that way.

A lot of broken hearts and divorces start that way, as well.

It's not a "gay thing". It's a human thing. And education helps.

Stop trying to bear false witness, you cretin fer xrist. The numbers of fatalities are not even close - they are far, far higher from Africa, so your measly lie still wouldn't account for this vast difference. And babies in the US have been born positive and died, too.

AIDS worldwide is overwhelmingly a disease of heterosexuals. As the violent rape of women is a heterosexual male problem. By your "logic" of defamation you fundie freeeks, who are anything but Christian, should be aiming your hate at those groups...if facts had anything to do with the matter.

You vile filth.

They don't run around berating those who smoked tobacco and got cancer, but by their "logic" of smearing groups (gay people) they should.

Again, none of this defamation from fundie scum has anything to do with anything other than their personal, psychological problems with variations in sexual orientation. They just make up other excuses, buybull or std related.

One more point. There are so many more straights than gays that if only 10% of straights had AIDS an 100% of gays had it, that would still be more straights sick than gays. But it would also mean no gays without it and 90% of straights not having AIDS. It is ridiculous to compare raw numbers and call this a heterosexual disease in this situation. I don't really expect you to be able to use your big head and really understand this, but maybe some other gays will get it and ignore your destructive information.
