With the HIV/AIDS rate among gay men through the roof, you'd think they would urge them to stop f*cking each other up the ass.

Syphillis, herpes, and the like never stopped heterosexuals from having sex.

I have mixed feelings about this. Well, kinda...

Ok, smoking is not good for you, clearly. However... a bunch of things...

For starters, they should be going after the entities whom are supposed to be finding cures and vaccines for everything (including smoking-related, although not exclusively), in case I have not said that enough. I'm not gonna go into a big thing about it right now, I'm gonna post a link instead.

http://www.topix.com/forum/us/cdc/TN2HON6NC2I...

Although I will reiterate, right quick, that telling PEOPLE what to do or not do (this also includes health, fitness, exercise, food/nutrition, etc.) is a cop out. I mean yeah, as a LAST RESORT, however, in general, people need to be putting the energies they would be spending on that "healthy lifestyle" crap into getting together (all 7.1 billion of us) and kicking the crap out the Top 1% and it's allies, until they get everything fixed for us (such as getting all cures and vaccines for everything, including anything new). Anyway, that's enough about that. I'll go into it further if anyone brings it up.

So yeah, I mean this CRUSH might mean well (giving them the benefit of the doubt; I've never herd of them until just now), but instead of focusing on what people do (tobacco use, in this case), they should be doing that instead. And the same goes for any person or group who is against smoking, on the basis of any health-related reason (The ones against it for other reasons have different solutions... I'll go into that if anyone asks or brings it up...)

Oh and the same exact thing applies to (from the bottom of the article) HIV (they should have the cures and vaccines for it, long since), alcohol (ditto), illegal drugs (ditto), car accidents (see link below) and firearms (complicated discussion for another thread; I'll post a link if anyone asks)

http://www.topix.com/forum/city/lawrenceville... Link about the car accidents thing. Post is technically about DUI, but hey, half of one, six dozen of the other ;)

That's really all I had to say about this. And again, it pretty much applies to anything. I know more people are realizing this, but their's still PLENTY who don't, and it is extremely frustrating. To many people still take the Mass Media as a legitimate information source, and their's really no excuse for it.

(And btw, YES that applies to Fox News also! Come on! I can't believe how many times I've sean someone slam the Mass Media, but endorse Fox. I'm like... WTF? Are you for real? WTF? I mean yeah, Fox is (usually) marginally better then CNN or MSNBC (although I rarely watch any of them, to be honest), however they are still Mass Media!!! Come on! Be real!)

So anyway, if it seams like I harp on that to much, that's why. Because #1 it is extremely relevant to that. And #2 their are to many people who still don't get it.

Oh and one last thing, to the person making the extremely homophobic comments (who is probably just a troll, but anyway), why do you care so much about gays, if you apparently hate (or have animosity/disdain for) them? And if you really are concerned about HIV/AIDS, what I said also applies to that. Go after the entities who are supposed to have the cures and vaccines found, long since, instead of telling persons how or who they can or can not have sex with. It's a no-brainer!

Always the descriptive, anal aspect from Huck1. So obvious.

"Smoke free brand" sounds like an e cigarette. You know, what closet cases and climate change deniers cling to in restaurants to "protect their rights."

You know, it would have been nice if you had gone into a little more detail for us.
