Bullshit! HIV was derived from a similar viral strain that exists in monkeys. It is suggested that monkey-human contact through a bite or fluids created what is now known as HIV. This spread then became an epidemic. Yes, HIv is associated largely with gay man and this is due to anal sex, unprotected anal sex is the easiest route of transmission therefore the association with homosexuality. Yes a large majority of hiv infected people are gay, but did you know that the largest majority is actually the straight community????? So I think your assumption that gay men are to blame is very ignorant not to mention downright false. Anyone who shares needles, practices sexual behaviour, has babies, has had blood transfusions, needle stick injuries etc etc etc are to blame......therefore EVERYONE! It's a disease, no one is at fault!

Gay sex is gross the reason gay men spread HIV more than any other group is the fact that condoms cannot be used during anal sex.

It's difficult for a man to get HIV from a woman through having normal vaginal sex, unless it's rough and causes her to bleed. On the other hand it's fairly easy for a woman to get it from a man.

Got any websites or any other proof to back up what you said? And care to explain why the overwhelming majority of AIDS cases in Africa are heterosexual? The ignorance of you bigots is mind blame every damn thing on homosexuals. That wad of chewing gum that got stuck on your shoe....blame it on the homosexuals. Farting in an elevator....blame it on the homosexuals. Until you have one SHRED of proof to back up any thing you say, STFU!
