Posted on 08/03/2011 1:38:06 PM PDT by Beowulf9
Despite years of great progress in treating AIDS, the number of new infections with the virus that causes it has remained stubbornly around 50,000 a year for a decade in the United States, according to new figures released on Wednesday by federal officials.
The American epidemic is still concentrated primarily in gay men, and is growing rapidly worse among young black gay men. That realization is causing a rift in the AIDS community. Activists say the persistent H.I.V. infection rate proves that government prevention policy is a flop. Federal officials are on the defensive even as they concede that the epidemic will grow if prevention doesnt get better, which they know is unlikely while their budgets are being cut.

In other news, gay men continue to bugger each other.
Better to isolate the spread, as they will not change their, ah, "lifestyle", regardless of how much "funding" there is.
“a rift in the AIDS community”
2. The “AIDS community?” Community? In what sense are the people who have AIDS a community? That is one of the most noxious PC euphemisms I’ve ever heard.
How does giving a disease civil rights “prevent” its spread?
Lemme guess it was ONLY a 6% increase or something, which is a "cut" to them
There is a lot of racism among homosexuals.
The preferred man is white, in his 20s - or younger :(
Low body fat, no facial or chest hair.
There is a “type” they are looking for, generally.
There you go trying to be logical!
“Better to isolate the spread,”
40 years ago, I got locked into a TB ward for a year, until they finally did a culture and found out that I had atypical TB, couldn’t spread it around, and that I probably had gotten it gardening! They shoulda locked up AIDS cases that way!
“Better to isolate the spread”
What, treat it like any other epidemic? I think you’re losing track of the most important thing here.
The most important thing is that male sodomites be able to practice unlimited promiscuity. AIDS really puts a crimp in that. If you quarantine sodomites and bring the disease under control that way, how do they ever claw their way back to social endorsement and unlimited promiscuity?
No! The only course is to keep the epidemic in the public eye, and to keep predicting the heterosexual AIDS epidemic. Only in that way will enough money be allocated to find a cure or a vaccine, and only a cure or a vaccine will allow sodomites to practice unlimited promiscuity without fear of catching a fatal disease.
Controlling AIDS though quarantine would be complete defeat for the sodomite activists.
You know what happened of course, when the subset of disease carriers was ID'd.
Does the research also show that the young black dudes are being introduced to gay sex while in the slammer?
So much for the gay gene.
-——In what sense are the people who have AIDS a community?——
They are Queer
You just described the majority of the men in the United States military.
Just wait till the military kicks in. Oh, boy.
“If my dim memory is correct,”
Your memory is correct! And I took a lot of guff over my strong opinions.
....I wonder if the Magical Bus Tour will stop
in at Man’s Country for a day or two....
“They are Queer”
So, I’m a member of the grumpy community?
We want reparations and special privileges.
Society now regulates high risk activities.
From smoking to riding a motorcycle , laws and regulations have been enacted to protect participants and others.
We need to do the same with Gay sex.
Best preventative medicine is trinoacitol.
