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.

“HIV Rate Up 12 Percent Among Young Gay Men”
Idiotic choices in life have consequences.
Please, God help us.
The sun will rise tomorrow.
“”I can remember going to a funeral every four or five days. Now, if you talk to some of these young men, they say, ‘If I do get infected, I will simply take the blue pill or the pink pill, like my friend,’ “ he said. “
The recklessness of that mentality is indescribable.
Nope. It’s Global Warming.
Strange how if we follow Gods teachings in the Bible we can prevent virtually all of these horrible disease.
Yeah! Bet they don't tell the kids this in school when they are telling them how "normal" homosexuality is..
Hell no! Just sodomize your way to a painful and early death, it's all good, so long as it promotes the militant gay agenda.
13 year old boys are men now??!! W.T.F.??!!
And they will get expensive drug treatments from public health clinics. They see people like Magic Johnson who got HIV back in the early 90’s and he’s still around. Why believe it’s a death sentence? It doesn’t appear to be.
I thought AIDS ( anybody remember GRID? ) was "everybody's disease..."
I want you all to consider these charts, ad ask just one simple question...
"How is any of this right, or fair?"
I said this a long time ago ( apologies for the bluntness, but it's true ):
"Don't share dirty needles
Don't have anal sex, or sex with those who do...
...and you probably won't catch AIDS."
It's a consequence of damn-fool choices, in the most part.
Kind of reminds me of the story Victor Borge used to tell about his uncle who invented the cure for which there was no disease.
Believe me many homosexual activists believe to their dying breaths that Republicans are responsible for the AIDs epidemic. The ironic thing is that this epidemic is virtually the only one almost strictly confined to one element of the general population. I still see and read statements by gay activists blaming Reagan for the epidemic. This was even after the early 80s when most people knew that unprotected anal intercourse practiced by male homosexuals was responsible for about 97% of the spread.
Researchers recruited “opinion leaders” in the gay communities of three cities in North Carolina. The people were trained to talk to their peers not only about ways to protect themselves from HIV but also about other issues,
such as homophobia in some black churches and racism.
See.............if we could just stop homophobia and racism,,,,,tommorrow`s headlines would read
“AIDS CURE FOUND “
Especially when you consider the taxpayer is likely footing the bill for those pills.
Instead of trying to “cure” AIDS, wouldn’t all the billions of dollare be much more wisely spent trying to find a way to speed up the virus? After all, if we could find a way to speed up the time from infection to burial to 3 months, wouldn’t AIDS just burn itself out?
Dialing Jeremiah Wright and Hussein Obama, those dastardly white folks are targeting blacks again sending AIDS into their neighborhoods.
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.
Thinning the herd!
Not to mention the expense. Uh, to the taxpayer.
My “give a damn” meter is busted. Oh boohoo.
Lay with dogs...get fleas
When the government subsidizes the consequences of a behavior, people engage in the behavior more or more recklessly.
It’s the central dilemna of all public health care policies. Is it possible to fund health care in such a way that it doesn’t increase social pathologies?
When charity was private, those doling it out could (theoretically) restrict grants based on probable outcomes. That said, there’s probably been no greater beneficiary of private charity and fundraising in history than AIDS.
Imagine that...they come up with a way to keep HIV pos. people alive longer and the behaviors increase.
Went to the Dr. this week for a cold. While I'm there she mentions that the fastest, broadest spread of HIV in the DC area is among heterosexual couples.
I wonder if that isn't because of so-called "straight" men diddling on the side with their gay lovers.
or,the woman messing around with a bisexual?
Idiotic choices in life have consequences...
that liberals insist should be paid for by others, especially in the case of sexual behavior choices.
This is for the most part a liberal disease. Don't think so?...just ask any gay person who they will vote for.
Also, ask them if they are Christian, you know, someone who reads the Bible. They are 180% out of phase.
AIDS is a politically funded, politically protected disease. Welcome to the Socialist States of America.
Sounds plausible. Remember, if the number of infected people goes from 2 to 4, that is a 100% increase.
