It really DOES get better. I went to Commack South in the early 70's and it was bad enough just being Irish there. If I had come out there in the early 70's there is no way I would have lived thru that.(The Garafalo boys attended there at the same time and they were the sons of a local mafia captain who ran the carting industry there. One of the other guys in the school, at the time I attended there was also "connected" and is mentioned in the book "Goodfellas", and he is the reason Henry Hill was arrested and turned state's evidence.) It was NOT a good school to be in if you were, like m, non-Italian, and gay.

But after I graduated, and went to college and came out, it was like night and day. I was treated as an adult, not like a kid like I was in high school, and nobody ever botherd me in any way at all because I was openly gay. In fact the BEST time in my life was at college, and I became a bartender at one of the local gay bars there.

It does get better.(And I bopped around a LOT, am hiv negative, and NEVER got an STD).

Hey, real fart, not everyone gets AIDS. In fact the highest amount of HIV is in straight women. They aren't getting it from door knobs or drinking fountains. They are getting it from straight men. How does that fit in with your scenario?

Idiot yourself. First, I was infected before there was any information and secondly, I had a blood transfusion in 1982, which may well have been the cause.

But of course you moral Xtians would rather blame than think.

I'm concerned for you. You seem to be very upset/angry about the guys health..So, let me ask you this, did you get something from a nasty girl? Is that why your acting like this? Or maybe its because your not secure with who you are? He has an illness, he didn't ask for it. He didn't seek it out. You're treating him like he did. Would you do this to a person who has cancer? Or maybe you would do this to a child that has a mental disorder. You would tell him its his fault..maybe he did something wrong in another life. Thing happen. Back then blood tranfusions we the cause of many people contraction AIDS... Grow up! You seem to have issues with yourself. Maybe you can fix those problems and than come back when your stupidity runs out.

DisHonest AbeL is simply a proven liar and fraud.(He claims that Department of Justice statistics show that 33% of all child molesters are gay, and he claims that the scientific literature supports the notion that people choose their sexual orientation.)

As to the article, why does it have to "get better" at some point in the future?

Why can't life for these young people start out better right now, regardless of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity or expression?

You are concerned for me? I just read the last dozen posts of yours and you run from thread to thread attempting to analyze everyone but when somebody offers you advise you would sooner learn from a homeless guy with mental disorders. Is he helping you with your analysis? Do you know that in 1981 the odds were 1:660,000 of getting AIDS through a blood transfusion? Then it often went undetected for many years. Most of those people are dead. Do I think he lied? No. I think that is his best guess. Am I skeptical? Certainly. Do I think he is a jerk? Sure. Is there anything else I can help you with?

Yeah. If I'm so dumb and I outsmarted you, what does that say about you. Read my post again Dumb-dumb. I didn't say that I definitely became infected through a blood transfusion, I said that it MAY have been the cause. Where did you get your statistic? Is it effected by the place where the transfusion occured. A donor in Los Angeles may have been more likely to have been infected than in the country as a whole.

Don't bother trying to get yourself out of this one. I'll be out of town as of tomorrow and may not have internet access, or time to waste on dumb closet cases.

I'm glad you are stalking me, but I'm not your type. Do I think your a jerk? Sure. Do I think you have issues with your identity? Most certainly. Will you ever grow up? Nope. Is this converstaion pointless? Absolutely. I won't see eye to eye with hatred (that would be you) but I will say that your words are hurtful and not needed in the world today. Knowing that you like to add your input to conversations where they are not needed...I guess all I can say is I hope you have a child and he or she becomes gay. Maybe they can teach you a thing or two about being equal and fair. Because until than you can stay in your hole..and by the way...stop stalking its really not a pleasant thing for someone to do.

You post links to sites that prove your lies! The DOJ link you provided never even mentioned your claim. And the next link you posted was from the exact site where I told you the original lie came from: Paul Cameron!

And you stated that you "didn't need" to substantiate your claim with a link that the professional literature supports the notion that sexual orientation is "chosen."

You tell so many lies you forget which ones you've told, and to whom!

Guess what? I remember, and I've got the proof!

Loser. Lost. Liar. Fraud.

It's so much fun and easy exposing you for a fake because you provide all the evidence!
