Word ban at CDC includes 'vulnerable,' 'fetus,' 'transgender' - CNN (CNN) -- Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the very agency tasked with saving and protecting the lives of the most vulnerable, are now under order by the Trump administration to stop using words including "vulnerable" in 2018 budget documents, according to The Washington Post. ... On the list: "diversity," "fetus," "transgender," "vulnerable," "entitlement," "science-based" and "evidence-based."We need our guns! Armed people are not "vulnerable." Stop patronizing us. "Science-based? Evidence-based?" If you even have to say that, you are grabbing at straws in a vain attempt to convince us you are not lying through your teeth. Transgender People | Gender | HIV by Group | HIV/AIDS | CDC Fast Facts Transgender women in the United States are at high risk for HIV. Half of transgender people diagnosed with HIV are black/African American. Many factors make HIV prevention among transgender people a challenge. Not so fast, government whores! Transgender women are not promiscuous gay men or heavy intravenous drug users. Gay men are not even that promiscuous. They simply do not exist in sufficient numbers in any one community to account for their alleged promiscuity, which by definition must occur among themselves. On the other hand, all too many ladies are doing all too well, and the gentlemen who patronize them are, err, "straight" if you can stand to call that sort of business "straight." What CDC Is Doing CDC and its partners are pursuing a high-impact prevention approach to maximize the effectiveness of current HIV prevention methods among transgender people. Activities include: Awarded $11 million per year for 5 years, beginning in 2011, to community-based organizations (CBOs) to provide HIV testing to young gay and bisexual men and young transgender people of color. A new funding opportunity focusing on this population will begin in 2017 and continue for 5 years, depending on the availability of funds. Fuck the CDC. The hackers have it right. CDC = Cult of the Dead Cow. Pure pork. The Numbers In the United States, it is estimated that almost 1 million adults identify as transgender. From 2009 to 2014, 2,351 transgender people were diagnosed with HIV in the United States. So by these official numbers, about 0.24% of "transgender people" have been diagnosed with HIV. That doesn't sound like any more than the general population, and certainly not enough to lose any sleep over.
