Yep, noticed that did you? This has been a real thorny subject for me for the last twenty years or so. Reagan was the devil incarnate for not doing more to save people with AIDS, but if you asked homosexuals to refrain from public sex with numerous multiple partners per weekend, it was out of line.
It's a national scandle that there is even one public bath house in this nation that caters to homosexuals practicing group sex, that is still open at this time in our nation's history.
Course I never would have approved even without the AIDS epidemic. For the record, I don't approve of heterosexual clubs that promote sex between multiple partners either.
These are mostly endeavors that spread disease. That's not good for anyone.
That being said you are pretty much correct. This is a public health issue. The bath houses in San Fran were hot beds of disease when the AIDS outbreak started. Even though hundreds of people were dying they homosexual lobby demanded they stay open.
If this country were serious about stopping the spread of AIDS anyone infected with the disease would be quarantined post haste just as if they had Typhus or Yellow Fever.
Instead unless one is actively infecting others without their knowledge folks are free to walk the streets with a highly lethal communicable disease. That's just plain nuts.
