In our society, if any behavior resulted in contaminating 22% of the public with a deadly possible outcome, it would be banned. Amoral behavior is not natural, nor should it be condoned. If gays don't what us involved in their world, they should shut their doors so we don't have to look at them.
What does that ESTIMATE have to do with anything? Fact is HETEROSEXUALS get HIV/AIDS as well......they still aren't denied the right to marry a person who is not HIV/AIDS positive!!!

You might want to look at the stats of who has HIV/AIDS on a GLOBAL BASES:
http://www.avert.org/worldstats.htm

Information from the CDC website:
In 2010, blacks accounted for the largest proportion of AIDS diagnoses in the South, the Northeast, and the Midwest.

New AIDS diagnoses: At the end of 2010, the South accounted for 45% of the estimated 33,015 new AIDS diagnoses in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, followed by the Northeast (24%), the West (19%), and the Midwest (13%).

In 2010, the Northeast reported the highest rate of new AIDS diagnoses (14.2/100,000), followed by the South (13.0/100,000), the West (8.8/100,000), and the Midwest (6.3/100,000).

Most people receiving an AIDS diagnosis in 2010 or living with an AIDS diagnosis at the end of 2009 were black, white, or Latino, reflecting the majority population groups of the United States.
http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources/factsheets/g...

At the end of 2010, an estimated 25% of adults and adolescents aged 13 years or older living with a diagnosis of HIV in the United States were women.a But not all women are equally at risk for HIV infection. Women of color, especially black/African American women, are disproportionately affected by HIV infection compared with women of other races/ethnicities.

In 2010, the fourth largest number of all new HIV infections among all people in the United States occurred among black/African American women with heterosexual contact (5,300 infections)c (see bar graph). Of the total number of new HIV infections among women in the United States in 2010, 64% occurred in blacks/African Americans, 18% were in whites, and 15% were in Hispanics/Latinas.d
At some point in their lifetimes, an estimated 1 in 32 black/African American women will be diagnosed with HIV infection, compared with 1 in 106 Hispanic/Latino women and 1 in 526 white women.
http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/women/index.htm

CDC estimates that 1,148,200 persons aged 13 years and older are living with HIV infection, including 207,600 (18.1%) who are unaware of their infection1. Over the past decade, the number of people living with HIV has increased, while the annual number of new HIV infections has remained relatively stable. Still, the pace of new infections continues at far too high a level—particularly among certain groups.

HIV Incidence (new infections): The estimated incidence of HIV has remained stable overall in recent years, at about 50,000 new HIV infections per year.2 Within the overall estimates, however, some groups are affected more than others. MSM continue to bear the greatest burden of HIV infection, and among races/ethnicities, African Americans continue to be disproportionately affected.

Something that spreads disease by 22% pookie cannot be good or normal. Why not spread cancer, it would also be the same right you are fighting for with abnormality.

Reading comprehension just isn't a strong suit for you, is it?

I guess the 45% of Black/African-American woman who are HIV/AIDS positive is okay with you, right? Is it okay for them to spread it to other heterosexual men?

Seems that it is you POOKIE that can't seem to see that HIV/AIDS affects HETEROSEXUALS just as much as any other walk of life!!!

people that practice unsafe sex know they run a high risk of getting STDs. that is their choice.

are you against free will?

again heterosexuals in Africa seem to have the worlds worst problem with aids...should we outlaw heterosexuals and thier marriages because of that?
