Homosexuality Sex Fueling Spread of HIV in Asia, Warns World Health Organization

HONG KONG, February 17, 2010 - Male homosexual sex is "fueling" the rapid rise in HIV/AIDS infections in Asia, according to a recent report by the Western Pacific Branch of the World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO warned today that the HIV/AIDS epidemic may take a major turn for the worse in Asia.

The central role of male homosexual sex in the HIV spread has prompted WHO’s Western Pacific office, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program, UNAIDS and the Hong Kong Department of Health, to implement AIDS prevention programs in light of the unique vulnerability of people with same-sex attractions.

"Studies show that at present, the proportion of HIV infections being transmitted among men who have sex with men is larger and more significant than we had originally believed," said Dr Massimo Ghidinelli, WHO Regional Adviser in HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections. "Action needs to be taken now if a major increase in HIV/AIDS cases is to be averted. We need to target HIV prevention strategies, together with better access to health services, for men who have sex with men (MSM)."

The release cites a 2007 report showing an increase in AIDS infections across Asia, and mentions China in particular, where the risk of infection by active homosexual men is 45 times higher than for men in general. The WHO noted that Asia is thought to have the world’s largest number of actively homosexual men, estimated at 10 million.

China’s official news agency Xinhua also announced today that AIDS took more Chinese lives than any other deadly infectious disease last year. Xinhua said there were a total of 264,302 HIV/AIDS cases by the end of September last year. The United Nations estimates 700,000 Chinese were HIV positive by the end of 2007.

The organizers will meet with HIV/AIDS specialists from Asian governments, regional experts and representatives from nongovernmental organizations from 18 to 20 February, when they will consider strategies to deliver better services to MSM communities.

Go read the treaty of tripoli....THEY DID NOT FORM THIS AS A CHRISTAIN NATION.........They formed it as a nation where any religion is welcome or none at all...YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL CHOICE.......
actually a very high percentage of the founders of the nation were secular deists. thomas jefferson even went so far as to translate his own personal bible from aramaic, greek and hebrew. in doing so, he completely deleted all the writings by saul of tarsus because they were utter rubbish.

good job, too.

Not at all. You could have just cited the dictionary meaning for it, but that would have burst your bubble that "man and/or woman" are implied in various definitions even though not explicitly stated:
sexual intercourse&#8194;
noun
genital contact, especially the insertion of the penis into the vagina followed by orgasm; coitus; copulation.
Dictionary.com Unabridged
Based on the Random House Dictionary,© Random House, Inc. 2012
~~~~~~~~~~
Note the definition is "genital" contact. And while penile/vaginal contact is provided as an example, the word "especially" does not mean exclusively in this context.
sexual intercourse
— n
the act carried out for procreation or for pleasure in which, typically, the insertion of the male's erect penis into the female's vagina is followed by rhythmic thrusting usually culminating in orgasm; copulation; coitus
Collins English Dictionary - Complete & Unabridged 10th Edition
~~~~~~~~~~
Again, note it's defined as an "act" for either procreation or pleasure. And while providing penile/vaginal contact as an example, the word "typically" again does not mean exclusively.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Consummation
Consummation or consummation of a marriage, in many traditions and statutes of civil or religious law, is the first (or first officially credited) act of sexual intercourse between one man and one women, either following their marriage to each other or after a prolonged sexual attraction. Its legal significance arises from theories of marriage as having the purpose of producing legally recognized descendants of the partners, or of providing sanction to their sexual acts together, or both, and amounts to treating a marriage ceremony as falling short of completing the creation of the state of being married. Thus in some Western traditions, a marriage is not considered a binding contract until and unless it has been consummated.

CONSUMMATION OF MARRIAGE

The first time that the husband and wife co-habit together, i.e. engage in intercourse, after the ceremony of marriage has been performed, is thus called.
Sorry to intrude on your ignorance, Pietro, but pregnant is used to describe other animals in addition to human women. Nor is pregnancy limited solely to the female of a species as the male seahorse carries the fertilized egg in a pouch within its body until the babies hatch.
The English language is not limited to describing only human beings.

The reality is consummation is not a legal requirement in any US state for a marriage to be considered valid. In fact, I only found one state (Colorado) that indicated unknown/undisclosed impotence prior to the wedding could be used as grounds for an annulment.(link: http://usmarriagelaws.com/search/united_state... )

While it might yet have some import to various religions, consummation from a civil law standpoint in the US is essentially moot.

I am NOT very religious at all at this point in my life.
I just don't think the things you represent are healthy for the country, human kind, or future generations. Since I have a responsibility to my country, human kind, and future generations, I CANNOT simply shut up about the issue and "live and let live".
Hopefully, that answered your question.

You are a disingenuous liar. How can you say you are not religious and then use the word abomination.

Your are a filthy bigot to disrespect other people's personal relationships the way you do. You hate freedom and personal human dignity with a passion.

AIDs has nothing to do with same sex marriage. If you were sincere in your concern for others, you would be in favor of committed relationships, especially in the gay community. What a disingenuous hypocrite your are to bring these two things up at the same time.

So you have the right to marry a woman. A woman doesn't always have the right to marry a woman. You are a sexist pig.
