Posted on 06/27/2008 12:16:44 AM PDT by Pinkbell
The number of young homosexual men being newly diagnosed with HIV infection is rising by 12 percent a year, with the steepest upward trend in young black men, according to a new report.
The double-digit increase in young gay men is about 10 times higher than in the homosexual community overall, where the number of new infections is going up about 1.5 percent a year.
The report, released yesterday by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, appears to confirm impressions that a "second-wave" AIDS epidemic is underway in gay America.

I wonder why this is even an issue?...
That’s a lot of money per person for eash AIDS case. It’s a shame they can’t find a much cheaper solution to the problem. If there was only an inexpensive way to prevent HIV, that would free up a huge amount of money for breast cancer, Alzheimers, and numerous other problems that cannot be prevented easily. We should put the best minds in Congress on that task and see how long it takes them to find a cheap and reliable way to prevent AIDS from spreading. Then they re-allocate most of the funding to non-preventable diseases and save more lives.
Isn’t reporting this an act of discrimination? Shouldn’t the writer and publisher be brought before a human rights tribunal?
Gays have a right to contribute to the blood supply, just like anyone else (transfusions are the only way she'd be infected).
The MSM led the charge in blaming Reagan for AIDS. Elizabeth Glaser , (now deceased wife David Glaser of Starsky & Hutch “fame”), blamed Reagan for the death of her children. Shameless. The bitch should have blamed her homo Hollywood butt pirate pals for the tainted blood that she received through a transfusion.
This has gotta be another plug for obama. The gubmint’s at it again.
I want to make a correction. Only one of Glaser’s children died.
Zero sympathy for any queer who gets aids after what we have all learned about it.
Sad. A preventable disease and so much publicity, gov. $ about how to prevent it. I have sympathy for a teenager who doesn’t know any better but anyone over the age of 18 no sympathy. The black community needs to acknowledge that there are homosexuals in their community instead of blaming AIDS on a white plot like Obama’s favorite Rev. Maybe then more homosexual blacks would use condoms.
The $ spent on this disease are politically motivated, lets spend more $ on cancer and heart disease, as those diseases cannot be prevented by wearing a condom.
I remember living in SF and even the gay activists fought those who wouldn’t close the bathhouses....too many died young because of political correctness.
More good news from the ‘community’ who believe that ingesting poo-poo, and having one’s pee-pee shoved up their poo-poo is wholesome!
Seems hard to believe.
The left will blame this on normal people, not on unnatural practices.
You'd have to wonder about their sex and /or drug use habits.
LOL!! Looks like it really sucks to be gay these days???
At least they referred to them as “gay” instead of “men who engage in sex with other men” this time.
(Epidemiologists prefer the term "men who have sex with men," or MSM, because many of them do not identify themselves as homosexual or gay.)
The problem I see is that everyone’s medical insurance premiums go up, not just the perverts.
