I'm going to pick a nit here and ask "Who's we Kimosabe?"
I don't contribute one iota to this problem. I've been saying for years if we really want to stop it, we need to quarantine those who are infected and refuse to cease the behavior that spreads a 100% lethal disease.
I seriously doubt that you 'contribute' to the problem either my friend.
If people knew that if they caught this disease and continued with their stupid, risky, selfish behavior that they would lose their freedom they most likely wouldn't engage in it and the 'epidemic' would burn itself out.
Then we would be back to the good old days when all one had to worry about was a nasty case of the Clap.
No I don't and I'm sure you don't, but I do think it's reasoned to admit that some heterosexuals do spread some pretty rank diseases, up to and including AIDS. Is it to the degree that homosexuals do? No, there just isn't as much trauma involved in the acts in most instances.
I've never recommended quaranteening people, but I have had a very sympathetic view if it involved promiscuous people who were hell bent on infecting others, especially if that person hadn't a clue.
If monogomous homosexuals want to continue to have relations when both parties know what the risks are, I'm less inclined to quaranteen them.
I too think this disease would have basicly destroyed it's hosts and therefore itself if proper public health policies had been put in place and adhered to.
It's really a shame that they weren't.
Thanks for the comments.
