ATLANTA (AP) -- A government study found one in five sexually active gay and bisexual men is infected with HIV, and nearly half of those infected don't know they have the disease.
The study is considered the largest to look at urban gay and bisexual men at high risk for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

So what is the breakout for suburban and rural homosexuals? I guess this is why its called brokeback mountain instead of rock candy mountain.
and WHY do they want force us to use green light bulbs, non fat milk but GAY sex is ok...
The answer is simple. More government intervention. Start treating this like cigarette smoking. Tax and restrict this deadly behavior. Ban it in public.
Who wrote that headline????
Not much of a study, if they can only find five gay men in all of Atlanta.
Hey - remember the “good ol’ days” when they tried to scare us into thinking this would become a widespread heterosexual disease, too?
Heh. Funny how that never happened...
And if one of them sexually molests a young boy, the probability of infecting him with a fatal disease is high.
Couple this with that PSA they were running on LOGO that said 70% of new cases of HIV are among homosexual or bisexual men and you might think HIV/AIDS has something to do with being gay. Maybe you’d think it was a gay-related disease. A gay-related immunodeficiency disease or syndrome. What would a good acronym for a Gay-Related Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome be?
Huh, it can’t be gay-related. You can just get it by walking down the street and BLAM! You got the AIDS!
It just happens. Like pregnancy. Or bad credit. Or bankruptcy.
It’s probably genetic.
Yeah, it should be: 1 in 5 urban gay and bisexual men DONE got HIV
Now here’s a study that’s a little bit helpful.
The problem is, the Left will just use it to ask for more money to find cures, instead of advising people to cut out their risky lifestyles.
There is no way it is the men's fault who have created some of the most efficient ways to transmit viruses, bacteria and disease by engaging in activities that are OBVIOUSLY detrimental to a human being's health.
“Not much of a study, if they can only find five gay men in all of Atlanta.”
and if as the report says the gay men don’t know they have aids how do the researchers? Think they will tell them?
If smoking is bad because it causes lung cancer, why isn’t the male homosexual “lifestyle” bad because it causes AIDS?
Even in the conservative media such as National Review, I rarely see an obvious argument against “gay marriage” made. Since homosexuality causes disease and death, especially in males, society should do nothing to promote it, including recognizing “gay marriage”.
Like swingers and heterosexual sex addicts, the active gays by and large move to the cities, where they can have far more sexual partners.
So again most of them are going to be in the big cities, specifically to have more sex partners available.
And here's what happens right before that:
We better spend even more tax money keeping them alive! (But don’t worry, they won’t spread it around to anyone else.)
Well, I guess we’d better give more tax dollars to gay groups to help spread it further.
Seriously, I don’t know why they think it’s kind to homosexuals to help spread AIDS, which is what current laws and tax-supported efforts do. The secrecy laws make it a crime to tell anyone that they’ll get AIDS from this person or that. And the sex-ed classes teach little kids to have as much sex as they want but use condoms—a sure-fire way to spread AIDS.
Then when we get more AIDS as a result, they call for even more tax dollars to help spread it further. Makes a lot of sense, NOT.
beinzhow I is a Yokel, I figgered that theyz forgot to make it a plural:
1 in 5 urban gay and bisexual men gots HIV
But your word fits in jess right with either.
Wasn't their a children's book about the city gerbil and the country gerbil?
Good point. I don’t often trust statistics anyway.
I think it was worse 15 years ago...give them time.
Every homosexual man I know is HIV positive...without exception....but I’m older.
Their whole lifestyle is about fellatio(not so dangerous) and anus sex(very dangerous) and they are probably the least responsible sex practitioners known this side of fat white trash girls with their multiple daddy-less mosiac infants..
Yep, make sure you lower your fat intake because we all need to stay healthy.
In a sane world the answer would be “stop doing what helps the disease spread!”
Instead, the answer is, eeeevvvviiiillll normal people are responsible for spreading the disease, and they must be taxed to pay for a cure so the sexual minorities can go ahead and do whatever they want to do.
This terrible injustice will be remedied as soon as we have a sufficiently liberal Democrat president in the Oval Office. Huh? Oh, wait.
Four percent. And that estimate may be high. The prior article I linked says the latest CDC estimate was around 2%.
“Hey - remember the good ol days when they tried to scare us into thinking this would become a widespread heterosexual disease, too? Heh. Funny how that never happened...”
Reason being: there has never been a recorded case of female-to-male transmission of HIV from vaginal intercourse, in the absence of a pre-existing venerial disease or lesion.
Pretty much puts a stop to the chain.
In this day and age with all the resources dedicated to this situation, you’d think that HIV would be non existent.
Simply practice safe sex, no problems. How am I supposed to be responsible for such irresponsible behavior? There oughta be a limit.
Obligatory “Stop the Lies’ directed at Obama. PING
I’m sure Barney Frank is “chewing over” that fact!
And I’m sure our healthcare premiums reflect that.
AIDS/HIV - One reason the creator made remote ocean islands.
LIBERALS - Why those islands aren’t being used to quarrantine infected homos.

Being Gay doesn’t put you at risk of gettign AIDS, Living an out of control lifestyle is what does.
and nearly half of those infected don’t know they have the disease.
Wow...thats a good study. It found people who were sick and didn’t know they were sick! Bet they were surprised....
Wonder if they knew they were homos too?
“Study: 1 in 5 urban gay and bisexual men got HIV”
From the grammar in the title it would appear that the AP has one of those “urban” men either editing or writing for them. One wonders how they attained this information? Did the AP “axe” these young men about their lifestyle choices vs their diseases? One more thing, is my complete lack of GAS about these men racism or homophobia?
Inquiring minds need to “no.”
I thought that was the main draw for the homosexual lifestyle.
[... Living an out of control lifestyle is what does.

It is simply a permission slip to live an irresponsible yet somehow socially “acceptable” lifestyle.
Another data point on why we should do all we can to keep the queers outta uniform.
Besides, it’s hard to find gerbils in a combat zone.
Can you just believe it? as in ... DUH.
...right, but no worries, let’s go full speed ahead on integrating homosexuals into the military. It’s not as though they pose any particular threat to the health and well being of the troops.
Even worse ... every gay wounded man becomes a death. What medic in his right mind with any sort of cuts on himself is going to take a chance on catching a 100% FATAL bloodborne disease when he is working on the wounded?
CDC Factsheet: HIV and AIDS among Gay and Bisexual MenGay and bisexual men referred to in CDC surveillance systems as men who have sex with men (MSM)1 of all
races continue to be the risk group most severely affected by HIV. Additionally, this is the only risk group in the U.S. in
which the annual number of new HIV infections is increasing.=======Gay and bisexual men referred to in CDC surveillance systems as men who have sex with men (MSM)1 of all
races continue to be the risk group most severely affected by HIV....** While CDC estimates that MSM account for just 4 percent of the U.S. male population aged 13 and older, the rate of
new HIV diagnoses among MSM in the U.S. is more than 44 times that of other men (range: 522989 per 100,000
MSM vs. 12 per 100,000 other men).** MSM account for nearly half of the more than one million people living with HIV in the U.S. (48%, or an estimated
532,000 total persons).
** MSM account for more than half of all new HIV infections in the U.S. each year (53%, or an estimated 28,700 infections).
** MSM are the only risk group in the U.S. in which new HIV infections are increasing. While new infections have
declined among both heterosexuals and injection drug users, the annual number of new HIV infections among MSM
has been steadily increasing since the early 1990s.
Every homosexual man I knew is dead. I'm older too.
So, if 1 in 5 gay recruits in the new military had HIV, and, given the bleeding that occurs in combat, we should be able to cripple the military in very short order. And we can use most or all of the VA’s funding to treat HIV and AIDS. Eliminate certain recruiting standards, relax certain boot camp training procedures, and we’ve found a perfect way to give gay men free treatment for life.
Add to that the democrats’ contempt for the military and their desire to defund national defense and security, and you have a two-front war on the military, which it can’t effectively fight since all of its soldiers are in the hospital getting treatment for HIV and AIDS.
Why aren't there more studies on Gays and the Gay Life Style?
1) What is the average lifespan of a Gay, Queer, Lesbian, etc. ?
2) What other diseases do Gays, Queers, Lesbians, etc. contract?
Ahhh, but I bet the Feds Health & Human Services will NEVER, EVER do such studies!!!
3.) Just what is it about Subarus that is so attractive to lesbians?
