    AIDS only comes from two sources:

    Ronald Reagan Tax Cuts.
    Religious Missionaries if Africa.

    The idea that AIDS was made in a Gov't Laboratory and released to the general public is a Conspiracy Theory and should be dismissed.

    The left has no problem persecuting smokers for their own good. Why not do that with other groups who live unhealthy lifestyles? Or is it better to deny reality and have a politically correct feel good moment?

    So you are prepared to demonize gay people but what about straight people who engage in one night stands?

    How am I demonizing? I'm presenting you FACT. Or is the NHS and the BBC lying about the statistics?

    When straight couples behaving irresponsibly have a disease epidemic that is entirely preventable yet has a health campaign that takes so much money, and away from other diseases that are not completely preventable, I think people will have more problems with irresponsible straight behavior.

    I'm curious how you sleep at night knowing some kid is dying in Africa because there's no funding for malaria because it's being spent on HIV, and entirely preventable illness, whereas malaria isn't.

    Did you even bother to read your own article?

    Nearly half of the 6,280 people diagnosed last year were men who had sex with other men (MSM).

    That means a greater percentage of people contracted HIV NOT by men having sex with men, which means a greater percentage of people who contracted HIV were more than likely straight.

    So before you lay the entire blame for HIV transmission on the gay community, remember there are many ways to contract HIV by straight people as well.

    Men have a greater chance of getting HIV than women, we should start making laws against men in general.

    Okay, let's presume for a moment your incorrect belief is valid. Which of course it isn't given a lot of HIV infections comes from other irresponsible behavior such as needle sharing. Given that gay men are what, 2-3 % of the population, yet account for 50% of the HIV infections, um, don't you see an issue there? Or perhaps being politically correct any denying reality will help lower the infection rates?

    Better for people to get fatal illnesses than offend someone's wittle feewings!

    Some World AIDS Day news...
    :confused:
    HIV/AIDS Afflicts Migrants Living in Wealthy Countries
    December 01, 2012 — The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is calling on governments to provide migrants with preventive care and treatment for HIV/AIDS. To mark this year's World AIDS Day, IOM is focusing on the plight of migrants who, it says, are disproportionately affected by HIV and AIDS in high-income countries.
