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.
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.
