Homosexuals should pay more insurance
CFP ^ | January 20, 2005 | Nathan Tabor

Posted on 01/20/2005 11:04:16 AM PST by MikeEdwards

With the big flap over so-called "gay marriage" temporarily on the back burner--now that their fearless but feckless leader John Kerry has gone down in flames, and with the first government-sanctioned same-sex unions already ending nastily in divorce courts and bitter custody battles--this just might be an opportune moment to discuss some rarely mentioned health problems inherent within the allegedly avant garde homosexual lifestyle.

Some would say it is a known fact that most homosexuals, and especially gay men, are promiscuous. Their rhetoric is carefully crafted to give the impression they are in "committed, caring relationships" while research suggests that the vast majority of gays are neither celibate nor monogamous. (All heterosexuals are not celibate or monogamous either.)

Some may say, so what? Well, the corollary to this homosexual health hypothesis is another proven fact: most sexually active homosexuals simply don’t live a very long time. The heartier they party, it seems, the shorter the time that party lasts.

According to a article entitled The Longevity of Homosexuals in the Omega Journal of Death and Dying, the median age of death from AIDS for homosexual men is 37, and the median age of death from other causes is 42. This does not compare favorably to the ever-increasing average lifespan of the rest of the heterosexual American population.

An analysis conducted at the end of 1997 by the Centers for Disease Control revealed that fully 60 percent of all AIDS cases in the United States are found among homosexual men. This is an amazingly high figure, especially when we consider that homosexuals--contrary to Kinsey's flawed study and fabricated "one-in-ten" myth--constitute only about 1 to 2 percent of our total population. . . . .

I would think that other arguably "genetically based behaviors" that result in higher health problems (alcoholism, obesity, etc.) result in higher insurance rates. i don't know.

what I DO know is that these other behaviors are not encouraged through state-created institutions, with the attendant tax and other benefits.

Just a thought.

Funny, the homosexual lifestyle is more damaging and dangerous than 30 years of smoking cigarettes. Will lawyers sue "big gay," will we see television commercials telling teens not to do it, will will tax them...?

This is not a new issue.
In the mid-eighties, when gays realized that they were particularly vulnerable to a premature death, many tried, after being diagnosed, to get "insurance". The remarkable thing is that instead of laughter, they got not only support, but actually a legislative re-definition of the word "insurance".

It has since become a euphemism for officially subsidizing perversion.

Absolutely. I remember our new pastor when I was a senior in high school couldn't get cheaper insurance because he was so overweight.

He still is fifteen years later. But apparently he has a teaching position or something that pays better.

Funny how a small minority of the population is the largest contributor to AIDS. 98% of the population shouldn't pay the increased insurance benefits for 2% of the population's high risk behavior. A convicted drunk driver pays higher car insurance rates (high risk) compared to those who maintain a clean driving record. It shouldn't be any different here.

Smokers have to pay more for insurance, because of the added health risk. It makes sense to put an "HIV rider" on policies, to be purchased by those who think they need it, and ignored by those who, because of a less promiscuous lifestyle, may not feel the need for it. That makes more sense than expecting everybody in the insurance pool to be penalized for the behavior of a few.

Unprotected homosexual intercourse is far more dangerous than smoking. Smokers pay more for / cannot get the cheapest health insurance. The implication is obvious, but political correctness prevents do the right thing from a business perspective.

DO agree with one possible caveate-- Have seen the revolving door most non-faith rehabilitation programs
result in. The Local VA drug rehab program as one example.
Every time the druggie-or alcoholic confirms they have sufficiantly progressed to claim completion of in-house
rehab they are released to the same streets and environment where they had so many facilitators before going to (often -court ordered) rehab. Too often within
months these addicts are returned to the rehab program
and meet with the same results. It seems the same can almost be said of the reprobates.

Communism is homosexual action.

Homosexual action is communism.

It, they, whatever, does not believe in paying anything.

It is all about obsessive self-absorption in the manner of a black hole, sucking in everything, taking, grasping, consuming, lusting, grabbing, fanatically, painstakingly, fussing over every means possible ... to get attention and get everything and make sure that nobody else has more than, aborting anything of any higher means, higher value, higher standard, higher purpose, higher ambitions, higher anything, real or imagined, in the path of "the long march."

With one goal for each marcher: Get the other guy to pay.

You might think, that with a monopoly on sensitivity, that "gay people" would be first to abstain from homosexual action that reproduced AIDS and HIV to the point of killing hundreds of thousands, if not by now, millions, over the last 25 years.

Very sensitive, that.

No. Not really.

It's about obsession and screw the other guy in the name of sameness.

It's about living a lie, defying the gift of life.

Jim Robinson's Master List Of Articles To Be Excerpted

Homosexuals Should Pay More Insurance - Nathan Tabor

With the big flap over so-called "gay marriage" temporarily on the back burner -- now that their fearless but feckless leader John Kerry has gone down in flames, and with the first government-sanctioned same-sex unions already ending nastily in divorce courts and bitter custody battles -- this just might be an opportune moment to discuss some rarely mentioned health problems inherent within the allegedly avant garde homosexual lifestyle.

Some would say it is a known fact that most homosexuals, and especially gay men, are promiscuous. Their rhetoric is carefully crafted to give the impression they are in "committed, caring relationships" while research suggests that the vast majority of gays are neither celibate nor monogamous. (All heterosexuals are not celibate or monogamous either.)

Some may say, so what? Well, the corollary to this homosexual health hypothesis is another proven fact: most sexually active homosexuals simply don’t live a very long time. The heartier they party, it seems, the shorter the time that party lasts.

According to a article entitled The Longevity of Homosexuals in the Omega Journal of Death and Dying, the median age of death from AIDS for homosexual men is 37, and the median age of death from other causes is 42. This does not compare favorably to the ever-increasing average lifespan of the rest of the heterosexual American population.

An analysis conducted at the end of 1997 by the Centers for Disease Control revealed that fully 60 percent of all AIDS cases in the United States are found among homosexual men. This is an amazingly high figure, especially when we consider that homosexuals -- contrary to Kinsey's flawed study and fabricated "one-in-ten" myth -- constitute only about 1 to 2 percent of our total population.

The conclusion is simple. Homosexual activists say they want equal rights and treatment. Fine. Let’s use their own arguments against them here. Let’s start by having them pay their fair share of the healthcare costs that accompany their lifestyle.

Long-term medical treatment for HIV and AIDS is usually protracted and tremendously expensive. Maybe that’s why gay activists are pushing so hard for spousal benefits for domestic partners of homosexuals -- so somebody else, like the government or an employer, will pick up the tab.

"Risky" behavior is called risky for a reason. It means that by doing it, you put your life in danger. It’s really a lot like gambling for high stakes. The more you play, the more you stand to lose. For indulging in this risky behavior, you rightfully SHOULD pay more for both life and health insurance.

This isn’t a religious or even a moral values argument. This is strictly a common sense fiscal argument. You play risky, you pay more. That’s only fair. In fact, if these types of policies aren’t implemented, then health-conscious people are the ones being discriminated against.

You can’t blame the insurance companies for charging more. After all, their likelihood of having to pay out large sums of money on behalf of their gay clients is significantly greater.

Drinking and smoking, for example, are all directly related to dozens of diseases and medical conditions. So insurance companies habitually charge higher premiums. But non-smokers, non-drinkers and those who exercise get better rates than those who don’t practice such healthy lifestyle choices.

What about skydivers, hang gliders, and racecar drivers -- do they pay the same life insurance premiums as those who watch birds or collect stamps? Not hardly.

The same logic should be applied to practicing homosexuals. When actuaries and insurance underwriters finally figure out this formula, we may see some instantaneous lifestyle changes.

After all, their risky homosexual behavior is a lifestyle choice, not a destiny. If the proven threat to their health won’t do the trick, maybe the cost to their pocketbooks will.

So as long as the back of your underwear says "Exit Only", you should pay less for insurance than "others".
