What has kept this stuff alive is that AIDS is unique in that the both the Far Left AND the Social Conservative Right had an interest in sowing AIDS panic, and thus there are no real checks and balances (other than brave souls like Michael Fumento, etc.)
Gay activist groups obviously had a vested interest in getting as much research money as possible, and the Far Left of course embraced the issue in order to beat up on "uncaring" conservative governments, etc.
HOWEVER, the Social Conservative Right really didn't provide any opposition to the numbers, or the idea that AIDS was rampant in the heterosexual community or about to become so, because they really liked the idea of using AIDS to terrify people into only having sex with their spouses in a marriage, and if you didn't you were gonna die.

It would be nice if this was true. Unfortunately it is nonesense. Both parties promote "safe sex", condoms and "research". That's where the money is. Family faithfulness brings no money to anyone. BTW, "research" is pointless. HIV mutates fast, faster than the flu virus - an effective vacine will not be found. Something to pay for - may be, something that is at lest 50% effective - no.
