WASHINGTON, D.C., August 18, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has estimated that homosexual men account for 61% of the new HIV infections in the United States while they only amount to about 2% of the countrys population.
Earlier this month, the CDC released estimates for HIV infections from 2006-2009 showing that new infections remained stable at around 50,000 for each of the four years.
Homosexual men accounted for 29,300 of the estimated 48,100 new infections in 2009, and homosexual men aged 13 to 29 accounted for 27% of the new cases.
The only group in which new HIV infections is increasing, they say, is young homosexual men driven by an alarming increase in infections from African Americans. They estimated that the new infections among young black homosexual men increased 48 percent in the period of 2006-2009 (from 4,400 HIV infections in 2006 to 6,500 infections in 2009).
The study also revealed that almost 20% of homosexual men have HIV, while nearly half of those who do are unaware of it.

Wonder how long it will take for the “I’m shocked” graphic to be posted?
2 1/2 percent? I didn’t think it was that high.
Who says they are 2% of the population? How was that determined?
All right, it’s pretty disturbing to hear 20%, that’s a little high. The story would be way worse if one heard various other health problems that are disproportionately high among active male homosexuals as well.
If true, the repeal of DADT is downright dangerous.
CLEARLY statisticias are HOMOPHOBIC!!! (Sarcasm)
I would guess perhaps questions are asked. One example is the question to me as to whether I was a man who had sex with other men, or something of the sort, that is asked before you give blood. It is then probably assumed that because you were a man who engaged in homosexual behavior, that you are a homosexual yourself. That’s my thought anyways.
Well there, see! HIV isn’t just a homosexual disease. This proves it. /s
I think some non-propaganda group was finally able to work up some legitimate numbers and it was about 1.7%. Even this is probably inflating the true number, since infiltrators are everywhere. I'd say more like 0.7% - 1.0%.
Everyone has AIDS!
My grandma and my dog 'ol blue (AIDS AIDS AIDS)
The pope has got it and so do you (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
C'mon everybody we got quilting to do (AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS AIDS)
We gotta break down these baricades, everyone has
AIDS! x 20
That number seems awful queer.

this is obvious
if they added the bisexual men, I’m sure the percentage would be almost 80% of the source of infections
Yet this and the promiscuity is never mentioned when discussing homosexual “rights” To hear the lobby, “community,” pols and media tell it, there’s nothing wrong with it, “it’s just another lifestyle.”
Meanwhile the worldwide death toll count runs into the millions.
Individual responsibility failure, and they want sympathy, care and money, it’s the progressive way.
“I’m wondering if any ex-Navy can corroborate what I have heard....which is that many Navy ships self supply their on-board blood supply, with blood taken from the sailors on board.
If true, the repeal of DADT is downright dangerous.”
This bears repeating over and over again. God help our military, because 0bama won’t.
