Sharing needles and anal sex have significantly higher risks of spreading HIV/aids.

I've read a lot of articles lately that the treatments are getting better and better. That's good news.

The only thing I don't understand (I could care less what two consenting adults do with their private parts or lives) is if they know the risk is that much higher why would they not take precautions??

Doesn't matter. If a prostitute is infected he/she was with a gay or bisexual person somewhere along the line or they shared needles with an infected gay or someone that was infected by a gay.
Substitute 'infected gay' for 'shampoo' in this commercial and substitute the word 'infect' for the word 'tell.'

Only from people already infected.

Sharing needles ISN'T a risk factor, it's a guaranteed factor.

There's nothing about virus transmission that pays any attention to the vector's orientation.

There's a very strange irony surrounding HIV and the new treatments for it.

With the advent of antibiotic-resistant strains of microbes, it is the researches that are being done to fight HIV that are providing the treatments that are offering the best substitutes for antibiotics that are increasingly ineffective.

Our haters can just keep on hating us, and will, but we will have been instrumental in keeping their kids alive in the not too distant future.

For more data, grab your popcorn and get comfy.

Sharing needles isn't a guarantee. It does raise the risk to the highest level of course.

Orientation has nothing to do with my statement. Anal sex (for biological reasons) is a much higher risk than say a bj. With that being said (link is previous post to support this) it's not about orientation directly, but since most gay men have anal sex.... I'm sure you see what I'm saying.

I have nothing against being gay or bi or whatever. To each their own. But the facts do speak the truth. All folks should be safe all the time. Now it's aids, herpes etc. 100 yrs from now it will be new things.

Proper prevention and all.

As Walter Cronkite was told on the network news by medical doctors when AIDS began, homosexual sodomy (it's actually solely in the digestive system, not at all in the sexual reproductive system) is the perfect vehicle for a plague.

That was before political correctness and the concomitant interminable rise in the homosexual AIDS rate.

Watch out for all the superlatives and definitives in your statements. They aren't all correct.

Sharing the needle of an infected user, unless they are at the stage of zero viral load, is a guaranteed transmission.

There's a definitive you can count on.

Yes. If someone infected has used the needle. Of course that's guaranteed. I may not have suburb writing skills but I am certainly not an idiot. I would have thought that would have been understood. Forgive me for assuming one might have common sense....
