Here’s the deal:

A woman can get aids through herto sex with an infected man (but not the other way around), or a needle. But not from homo sex with another woman.

A man gets it through homo sex or a needle. Not through hetro sec with a women.

Babies get it from their mother

Sort of. Ordinary unprotected sex is highly unlikely to infect a healthy woman (take 500-1000 instances for her to likely be infected, according to studies). The reality in this study is that these women CLAIM to have been infected heterosexually. Most probably, they were infected by sharing needles, or by receiving unprotected anal sex with men who share needles.

Unless the man has genital sores, like is common in Africa.

true.

(but not the other way around)

Nonsense. It's several times less likely for a woman to infect a man, but it happens. The same could be said for gay men, namely that one can only get infected if one TAKES it up the youknowwhat. (Infection rates for insertive penile-vaginal intercourse and insertive penile-anal intercourse are more or less the same.) But that is also bogus.

The real problem is viral load. If e.g. a woman has a fresh infection with high viral load, it doesn't matter that vaginal intercourse is ten times less risky if the risk increases thousandfold due to her high viral load.

But not from homo sex with another woman.

True. Which is the reason for the gay marriage "movement". When male homosexuals were dying, lesbians - who never had much of an AIDS problem - took over the political agenda and all they wanted to do is nest.

A man gets it through homo sex or a needle. Not through hetro sec with a women.

ROFL. Tell that to those unsuspecting men who got it that way. Sure, there are probably more women for which the same is true, but that doesn't make your generalization any less wrong.

Babies get it from their mother

With precautions (i.e. antiretroviral therapy, hospital birth, no breastfeeding) it's 99% likely that babies won't get it from their mothers.
