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.

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?
It can't be the source, they're made here in good ole Lafayette Indiana. But they're all 4wd, maybe lesbians are worried about getting stuck in the ditch?
“Start treating this like cigarette smoking.”
We’re doing quite the opposite. Most people with HIV/AIDs are poor or near poor. ObamaCare opens up Medicaid (for the first time) to non-disabled adults without children so long as their income is below 133% of poverty. This will automatically qualify a sizable number with HIV/AIDS for free medical care.
The new rules banning insurance companies from denying coverage to those with pre-existing conditions or charging higher premiums based on health status also will benefit those with HIV/AIDS who today are either denied coverage outright or must pay much higher premiums to get it.
Since the medical costs of HIV/AIDS exceed $10,000 a year, the net effect of all these changes is to reduce the “price” of having HIV/AIDS. What we know from Econ 101 is that when you lower the price of something, people demand more of it. It’s a safe bet that HIV/AIDS prevalence will rise as a consequence of ObamaCare, but don’t expect Dems to advertise this sad reality.

If the same percentage of heterosexuals routinely had sex with hundreds of anonymous partners then one in five heterosexuals would have HIV too.
That is politically incorrect terminology. You should use the non-judgmental terms She (womyn), He (men), It (eunuchs), and Trans-gendered (either or both), or the abbreviation S.H.I.T.
60% of the reported STDs in this country come from homosexuals which only comprise 1.5% of the population.
They are not “gay”, they are homosexual. And the homosexual lifestyle is one of rampant promiscuity. Google “Bug catchers”.
Thanks for the ping Bill!
There are studies. They just aren't reported. Lifespan is about 50 years old.
What other diseases do Gays, Queers, Lesbians, etc. contract?
Gay bowel syndrome, anal cancer, shigellosis, proctitus, MRSA, parasites, just to name a few.
