    And until it's dealt with as a Homosexual Issue, this will continue:

    While the number of Americans newly infected with HIV remained stable between 2006 and 2009, infections rose nearly 50 percent among young black gay and bisexual men, according to a CDC report released in August.

    Men who have sex with men -- which includes openly gay and bisexual men and those who do not identify themselves as gay or bisexual -- remain most heavily affected.

    While this group represents 2 percent of the overall U.S. population, they accounted for 61 percent of all new HIV infections in 2009.


    Acting like it's not and Homosexual Sex Issue because Africa has a more Diverse HIV Population doesn't deal with the Reality in the US after 30 years.

    The Primary Spreader of HIV is Anal Sex in the First World... End of List.

    Has been consistently now for 3 Decades and Multiple Generations.

    And the CDC number of 61% didn't Include the MSM/IV Drug User number from what I can tell.

    2% make up 61% of all new HIV Infections in the US...

    And if you check the CDC numbers, the Females that are Infected have a high rate of being with Men who have Sex with Men.

    This continues to be a SERIOUS Problem in the Black and Hispanic Communities where Acceptance of Homosexuals is MUCH Lower than in the White Community and most Homosexual Men have to Live on the "Down Low" and keep a Woman for Status.

    But America will continue to bury it's head, not Care, and those who don't want the Truth out will Attack those who Observe it... Which is almost Definitely what will follow this OP. :thup:

    Sad.

    :)

    peace...

    A Campaign AGAINST Men having Sex with Men Engaging in Anal Sex... It's Inherently Unsafe and the Data for 30 Years continues to Prove it out.

    Not a Campaign Against Homosexuals or Homosexuality, but Against that Practice...

    And not making it Illegal, simply Illustrating to that Community that the Practice is, has been and probably always will be UnSafe and Avoiding it greatly Increases your Chances as a Homosexual Man of NOT Contracting HIV.

    The CDC said once that a number of Urban Areas were near 50% in HIV Infection Rate Amongst Gay Black Men...

    That's Fucking Tragic and could have been Avoided.

    I Think they said that 1 in 4 Homosexuals in general in San Francisco has HIV.

    And they didn't get it because of Bigotry, but it would Certainly help if the Black and Hispanic Communities were Targeted for their Bigotry Against Gays...

    Which CLEARLY Exists and is FAR Worse than in the White Community.

    Now I'm being Racist and Homophobic simply because I am Observing the Truth, correct?...

    On World AIDS Day with fresh CDC Data, of course.

    :)

    peace...

    The only other factor you didnt include is that AIDS is seen by some younger gay men (of all races) as a treatable illness now, and are not heeding the multiple warnings that are already out there. Current medical technology has turned AIDS from a 5 year death sentance to a manageable chronic illness.

    This does two things. One, it creates a pool of infected individuals who are no longer ill, thus providing a reservior of new infection, and two, people being people, the lack of a death sentance makes the chance of getting AIDS less fearsome than in the 80's and 90's.

    The risk now is that some new strain of AIDS develops, which is immune to current treatments. At that point the bad old days may make a comeback.

    I agree... But after 30 years in the First World, HIV is a RARE thing in the Heterosexual Population...

    It's Primarily because of one Practice.
