yeah but Mother Nature also takes out innocent victims on this one, like the spouses who don't realize their husbands or wives are fucking around on them with infected people, nor it is fair to children born of AIDS infected mothers, often again infected by their sleazy husbands, look at Africa, in cultures where women cannot refuse their husband sex or they get beaten up, let alone insisting he wears a condom or where women are routinely raped...

I don't know that you can say AIDS is just a gay disease

it seems that AIDS's genesis was in Africa and you have two strains, one in West Africa which was always a milder strain, and almost exclusively a heterosexual virus, and one in East Africa which is the strain that has made its way around the world because of a highly mobile gay community

my understanding is that anal sex is the common denominator and anal sex is more prevalent in African sexual behaviour, heterosexual and homosexual and of course using condoms is still practically non existent,

but I could be admittedly way off base

"Actually, it goes farther back than that. I saw a documentary recently which presented a pretty compelling case that the HIV virus jumped species from chimpanzees through a particular oral polio imunization effort in Africa in the 1950's."


Interesting. See if you can find the link for this one.
