Sorry, that’s bunk. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear about a HIV positive patient on the OB unit where my wife works, and these women didn’t contract it by being gay. If HIV were a gay disease it would strike only men, but instead women account for 26% of HIV infections and the NIH and CDC both estimate that 80% of those cases are from heterosexual contact.

Some gays are bi-sexual and that is all it took. It is a gay disease spread via deviant behavior.

Hmmmm, let's see. Women are roughly 51% of the total population but account for 26% of AIDS cases. Meanwhile, homosexual men are roughly 1% of the population and account for 60% of the cases.

Do the math. HIV is and always has been a "gay" disease spread mainly by sodomy. Want to end it? Tell these people to stop using the exit ramp as an entrance.

It’s not bunk, it was spread initially to hetero women via bisexual males acting as vectors between the gay male community and the general hetero population. Or more likely IV drug users who shared needles with gay men infected with HIV who then shared needles with hetero junkies who then had sex with heteros.

Women do engage in butt sex too and it’s as dangerous for them to play catcher as it is for guys.

You also have guys like Larry Craig spreading it to thier wives along with other fun infections.

"...women account for 26% of HIV infections and the NIH and CDC both estimate that 80% of those cases are from heterosexual contact."

That may well be so, and yet it does not refute the fact that HIV is spread overwhelmingly by men who engage in anal pepentrative behavior, and women who have sex with them. Gay men are only about 2% of the U.S. population but constitute almost 75% of the people who have AIDS.

If we had reliable statistics to show the percentage of man-to-woman transmission which involves a man who is gay or bi or "on the down low," that would be revealing and worth discussing.

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.

ONLY if they have shared needles with someone who has it, been stabbed with a needles during medical care or something, OR their mate is bi-sexual. Whatever the reason they caught it, it still originates with homosexual behavior.

I was at the CDC for six years. Even then, it was internally regarded as a gay male disease.

Anal sex is the most common vehicle for delivery because of the fragile blood vessels in the rectum. It is true that women have contracted AIDS and it is generally for the same reason and the same way. Indiscriminate anal sex. But the prime carrier are gay men, including on the African continent where female anal rape is common.

You have a right to your own opinion but not to your own facts.
