p>WASHINGTON, February 14, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In a public statement last Friday, Matt Foreman, outgoing Executive Director of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, rattled the homosexual activist community by joining the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), pro-family organizations and a growing number of homosexual activists willing to admit that homosexual behavior is both extremely high-risk and primarily responsible for the spread of HIV/AIDS in the U.S.
Addressing the topic of AIDS, Foreman drastically deviated from the "gay" lobby's party line by admitting, "Internally, when these numbers come out, the 'established' gay community seems to have a collective shrug as if this isn't our problem. Folks, with 70 percent of the people in this country living with HIV being gay or bi, we cannot deny that HIV is a gay disease. We have to own that and face up to that."
A little over a year ago, Lorri Jean, CEO of the Los Angeles-based Gay and Lesbian Center, similarly shocked the "gay" community by stating that, "HIV is a Gay Disease. Own it. End it."
Foreman's admission comes on the heels of a letter from Matt Barber, Concerned Women for America's (CWA) Policy Director for Cultural Issues, inviting Foreman and other homosexual activists to work together in discouraging homosexuals from engaging in the high-risk behaviors researchers recently determined are responsible for the epidemic spread of a potentially deadly strain of staph infection among certain segments of the "gay" community. The CDC has acknowledged that many of those same high-risk behaviors, such as male-male anal sex, are chiefly responsible for spreading HIV/AIDS.
Matt Barber addressed Foreman's admission: "It's extremely encouraging to see Matt Foreman, a homosexual activist who has for so long been in denial about the dangers of the lifestyle he has promoted, publicly coming to terms with the undeniable perils of that lifestyle.
"I only hope he will now stop promoting homosexual conduct and push for other liberal elites, especially those running our public schools, to do the same. Educators must truthfully address the 'gay' lifestyle's potentially deadly consequences.
"It's criminally reckless for the National Education Association and liberal educators to put political correctness and a deceptive political agenda above the lives, health and well-being of America's children. The evidence is there for all to see. 'Gayness' is not about 'who you are,' it's about 'what you do.' The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force has now, in effect, acknowledged that reality. Their honesty is refreshing and unexpected," concluded Barber.

Sorry buckwheat but it’s not wrong just because you want it to be.
I quoted the CDC and NIH. I assume that any FReeper is intelligent to verify such easily verifiable data without a link.
My concern wasn’t how it spread to the heterosexual community, only that it had spread to the heterosexual community. The pig is out of that particular poke, so calling HIV a gay disease is ignorant.
I don't really like delving into the dark and dirty details of how they got it, but it might be enlightening to know how many of them had anal sex with their partner. I've read that the membrane in the lower intestines is much thinner than that of the vaginal wall, and thus anal sex is a higher risk for a woman than vaginal sex.
Wow. I just had one of those Blinding Flashes of the Obvious. I was reading your post thinking "Yes, why is it that gay men have more sex partners than straight men," and suddenly it came to me: straight men have to get over women's many defenses. They have to woo us, or at least seduce us, fool us, or get us drunk. The old joke: women need a reason to have sex, men just need a place.
So you get the gay community, where NO ONE, presumably, is holding out for flowers and candlelight... just a bunch of guys looking for a place... the male sex drive remains the same whether it's aimed at a woman or a man...
Sorry, folks, I'm just musing out loud and marveling that this has never occurred to me, that the gay male community would necessarily be promiscuous because it's all men.
Not to cast aspersions on all men, of course. But, well... there you have it.
I think so too. I have a student right now, only 12, and already he's just as gay as can be. Looks, mannerisms, posture, interests, hobbies... he's just a little girlie-boy. And he's confided in me that he likes boys, and who he has a crush on and all that. He's only twelve, but you can just take one look at the prissy little thing and say "Yup. Gay."
I met a lot of queer men when I was 16-18. When they tried to seduce me I thought it was funny. They seemed like strange cartoon characters to me.
Besides my friends dad being strange my friends sister was a lesbian. She was a little scary sometimes. Real butch type who brought home the best looking girls. Note that we were all in catholic school at the time. So it was surprising when some girl who was a babe we all lusted after at school showed up at my friends to spend the night with his sister. I liked the lesbian sister, she had the best Playboy collection hidden under her bed. Hey, I was 16....She hated my guts. But she hated all males.
I don't know about my friends fathers father. My friends father was a nice guy but distant. His mother was a great lady but drank a lot. I doubt there was any abuse of my friends lesbian sister. My friends father was around every day. He was a dentist and made a lot of $$$. At one point he bought a travel agency for his "friend" who was a swishy little guy. It was on the corner of Montrose and Westheimer in Houston which is the queer enclave. So we were down there a lot and that started some odd adventures for us I won't go in to.
The little queer guy ran the travel agency and promptly stole money like crazy. And my friends father did not care.
Once my friends dad bought the travel agency he and his wife and many times the little queer started traveling all over the world. Especially in the summer. So there we were, age 17, with a huge house stocked with all the food and liquor we could want and a couple of Mercedes and Jags we could use all we wanted. Nice big pool, etc. I almost lived there at times and my parents thought I was being closely supervised by my friends parents. Until my dad met my friends dad one day and my dads "gaydar" went off. Another story.
As far as whether these guys were born queer? I can't say 100% for sure but I do know many of them hated themselves because of what they were doing. Oh, they'd act like it was great, especially the "swishy" ones. But I had many a late night conversation with a drunk queer and found that many were self-loathing and self-destructive. If some could have changed I believe they would have.
I'd expect that my experience back then was somewhat unique since there are no way near the number of queer folk as they would want us to believe. I also saw the advent of the local gay activist groups. Those guys were not like the swishy ones at all. What they wanted then is what I guess what they want now. And that is that you HAVE to agree they are normal and that they are just like the rest of us. Over the years those activist queers have done a brilliant job of manipulating our society such that it now turns a blind eye to what queers "do" to each other. Which are things I find gross because.
Sorry for the long and boring post.......
Thanks for sharing your observations. In my previous career, we often had to reconstruct the last 24 hours of a homosexual male victims' life.
Very common to find 5 to 6 sex-partners per day, even on a week night.
In speaking with the victims families, the comment, "We knew he was different from the time he was a 4th to 5th grader", was often heard.
I wonder if being homosexual is some kind of punishment for past life transgressions?
I don’t know why queers are queer but I’m pretty sure that some of them can’t help it. But I cannot prove that and I don’t think anyone else can either. It is one of those things. Like proving or disproving there is a God or trying to figure out why someone supports Ron Paul. They are one of lifes mysteries.....
Trans people there are a whole lot of other as well as the same risks.
Thanks for the ping!
Your tagline: Dittos
Some night when the kiddies are all in bed, I'll tell ya about a gorgeous Lipstick lesbo that hit town and generated a homicide and several suicides .... then moved on.
I don't think we could have quarantined all those in Africa. AIDS, like most diseases, came from a cesspool part of the world. Over the next five years, Bush wants to send thirty billion to Africa to fight AIDS. We've told those people over twenty years how to stop spreading the disease but they won't listen. Wait till Osamabam becomes president. I'm sure, with him having close relatives in Africa, he'll want to spend more.
The following is from my profile and contains links from the CDC. The links support the context of the article. That is, HIV appears to discriminate disproportionately against gay men.
