    Almost 1 in 3 Men who have Sex with Men are Contracting HIV in US Urban Areas...

    This after 30 years of Knowing how NOT to get it?... In the Educated First World?...

    AIDS Epidemic in Some U.S. Cities Worse Than Global Hot Spots - AOL News

    In urban areas across the country, 30 percent of men engaging in "sex with other men" are contracting HIV -- compared with overall population rates of 7.8 percent in Kenya and 16.9 percent in South Africa.

    Groups at a high risk of HIV infection have remained largely unchanged since the 1980s...

    ---

    The Vast Majority of New HIV Cases in the US continue to be MSM, MSM who Inject IV Drugs, IV Drug Users and Women who are having Sex with Men who have Sex with Men or who Inject IV Drugs.

    Anal Sex and IV Drugs... Don't Engage in them and don't have Sex with those who do... Any Questions?

    Seriously... Both of these Practices are Inherently Unsafe, Dangerous and are not and would NOT be Recommended for ANYONE by any Person holding a Medical Degree.

    There is NO Safe way to do either, and after 30 Years, the Stats are Lying.

    :)

    peace...

    People continue to smoke, after 50 years of knowing that tobacco use is one of the leading cause of heart disease and cancers.

    Word of advise from a doctor: DON'T SMOKE. DON'T HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX.

    When did we Stop?... Of course, we haven't...

    And he Stats haven't Changed for 3 Decades.

    Are the Wealthiest and Most Educated "Minority" in the Country, the Homosexual Community, just to Stupid to Understand what "Safe Sex" is?...

    Cause the Heterosexual Community doesn't seem to have this Issue in the First World, even after 30 Years.

    It's this Simple... Anal Sex and IV Drug Use is Dangerous...

    3 Decades of Consistent Data doesn't Lie... Nor is it Bigoted Against Homosexuals or Drug Addicts.

    It's what it is.

    :)

    peace...

    Smoking is Inherently Dangerous... But MANY People do it for 40 and 50 Years and don't Die like those who Contract HIV.

    Better Advice would be to Tell People to NOT even Chance having Anal Sex because if the Condom Breaks, you may DIE...

    Not worth the Risk.

    :)

    actually, we DID stop. the last admin wanted 'abstinence only' programs. That doesn't teach people safe sex.

    and when there was recently a program to address safe use of needles, the right wing went nutters...

    and mostly, people got complacent because for the most part HIV/AIDS is a chronic treatable illness now.

    The thing is HIV is a horrible illness. Yes you can take drugs and live longer but the drugs make you feel like crap and you still catch every horrible other illness

    You get meningitis, every flu, strep, and you survive but it isn't living.

    And gay men are MEN, they have a man's libido times two.

    Even as homosexuality becomes more accepted being a gay man is always going to be difficult.

    I am not a gay male btw but I did know a gay male and saw his struggle.

    Stop having sex with men and you'll have nothing to worry about.

    Nope... "We" didn't Stop...

    Link where Public Schools are not Teaching Safe Sex and Providing Condoms to Students because of something (43) did Collectively from Coast to Coast.

    And again, the Stats haven't Changed, Jillian... They are Constistenly BAD for Homosexual Men and have been for 3 Decades and REPUBLICan Administrations and DemocRATS alike.

    ^That's the Message that Needs to be given to the Homosexual Community...

    And also the Down Low Community which is the Primary Drive for Black Women getting Infected in Poor Communities in the US.
