HIV is transmitted by many more ways than just anal sex. You can get it sharing needles with someone who is infected, exchanging bodily fluids (for both men and women, gay and straight), and no, gays aren't the only population being affected. Straight males can get it from infected females, and infected females can transmit it during sex as well. When HIV first started to rage against the country, I met a dude who was HIV positive (he was at the command to give a talk). He told us that he was straight, used to have a wife, but got stupid one night and went to a prostitute. She was infected and transmitted it to him. He taught us a lot with the information he bought, and no, he wasn't gay in any way, form, or fashion.

It’s a risk you take to live a sexually fulfilled life.

most heterosexuals barely have sex. Many go years without having sex. Men are too masculine now a days that it’s become toxic. Women would rather not have sex or would rather have sex with other women or preferably men who have eliminated their toxicity by transitioning to a woman.

4 in 10 transgender women in seven major US cities have HIV: CDC (msn.com)
15 Apr 2021 ~~ By Justine Coleman
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday released a report that determined 4 in 10 transgender women in seven major U.S. cities have HIV, which the agency said signaled a need to focus HIV prevention and treatment among the demographic.
The study conducted in 2019 and early 2020 found that 42 percent of 1,608 transgender women across Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle with a valid test result had HIV.
~Snip~
The study determined that 32 percent of respondents without HIV used pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a treatment for those at risk of HIV infection through sex or injection drug use. A total of 34 percent of participants said they had been involved in sex work.
The CDC cited previous studies that concluded that many transgender women may not use PrEP for different reasons, including medical mistrust, lack of transgender-inclusive marketing and worries about how it will interact with hormones. Sixty-seven percent of transgender women in the CDC survey reported taking hormones for their gender affirmation.

Comment:
Hmm..., HIV positive men pretending to be women? What could possibly go wrong?
Ever notice how the more empowered these groups are by the left, the more indestructible they act?
If the CDC is claiming a 40% infection rate in transgenders the rate has to be much greater than is being reported,

Where the famous Dr. Fauci on this now?
Speaking of Fauci - He said that in the 1980s when AIDS was in full bloom and imminent medical concern, he wanted to see where AIDS was being transmitted most so he went to gay bath houses in San Francisco and New York. He admitted to taking off his coat and tie. Sounds like he “mingled” with the boys.
Meanwhile the Progressive Marxist/DSA Democrat Leftists continue to push Transgenderism on our young... What's wrong with this picture?

Well, there's a lot of stuff that needs to be explained here.

This is ONLY for people who have a VALID TEST RESULT.

So, transgenders who don't fuck around with needles or sex are NOT going to be a part of this study.

People who go for a HIV test do so FOR A REASON.

So, 42% of people who are transgender and went to get a HIV test, have HIV.

What's the percentage for heterosexual people?

Who knows? Do they report such statistics? If not, then it's hard to compare.
..I was going to say 4 out of 10 is a big number, almost hard to believe...that's high .......but it says ''study'',= don't they figure in the ones who don't go in for a test/etc?
.....and, there can't be that many more transgender women, can there?

It's what it is. They said they only counted those who went for HIV tests.

Heterosexual people have far far lower incidents of HIV babe........homosexuals are known to engage in more risky behavior and have higher incidents of drug abuse. But among their worse characteristics for getting HIV---anal sex (because the membranes in the butt are thinner) spread the virus much much easier than hetero sex especially for the male involved. Decades later and so many still don't understand how HIV is passed around.

Maybe they do. That's not the point.

The point here is to understand what the article is saying. This is usually the biggest hurdle. People will just assume that 42% of transgenders have HIV. Not so, the article doesn't say this.

The title says this, and the title is just plain wrong. You'd expect a paper like The Hill to be better than that.

The issue with transgender people might be related more to mental issues.


"
Why Transgender People Experience More Mental Health Issues"

" While approximately 6.7 percent of the general U.S. population suffers from depression and 18 percent grapple with some iteration of an anxiety disorder, nearly half of all individuals who identify as transgender experience these issues. What's more, over 41 percent of trans men and women are estimated to have attempted suicide — a rate that's nearly nine times as high as the rate of cisgender Americans. "


What makes someone go through such an operation? Gay people can often struggle and deal with what society looks upon as "abnormal", many can find communities where they're not looked down upon.

But those who have to deal with this AND mental problems are liable to go to extremes. Those who do go to extremes might then end up doing things that aren't good for them.

They don't often get the help they need from society, especially those people who'd use such an article to bash people to make themselves feel better.
Turtlesoup has a good point--you can't deny it ....this adds evidence to the OP .....it's right here:
''''''GAY AND BISEXUAL MEN ARE THE POPULATION MOST DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY HIV IN THE UNITED STATES''''

Maybe they are.

That's not the point. The point is that this article's title is misleading. You have to understand what you're looking at. And perhaps you have to understand the causes too.

Another scam put out by the Fauchi clan. What they do is give drugs that kill the people and blame it on a fake AIDs infection. Their is no AIDS, no reason for a condom.

They are using the same PCR test that they used for AIDS.

Yeah, the study is a bad study because it only shows a limited section of a community.

So, it's pointless.

Why do I need anything? This is your argument, is it even an argument? I'm not sure what it is, but either way, it's based on bad science.

Frigid weirdo is right.
The data is not representative of anything other than 42% of trans gays who have an AIDS test, test positive. It has no bearing on anything else but that.
People misrepresent data to make points all the time. In fact, rare is it that data is represented correctly.

Sixty-seven percent of transgender women in the CDC survey reported taking hormones for their gender affirmation.

Comment:
Hmm..., HIV positive men pretending to be women? What could possibly go wrong?
Ever notice how the more empowered these groups are by the left, the more indestructible they act?
If the CDC is claiming a 40% infection rate in transgenders the rate has to be much greater than is being reported,

Where the famous Dr. Fauci on this now?
Speaking of Fauci - He said that in the 1980s when AIDS was in full bloom and imminent medical concern, he wanted to see where AIDS was being transmitted most so he went to gay bath houses in San Francisco and New York. He admitted to taking off his coat and tie. Sounds like he “mingled” with the boys.
Meanwhile the Progressive Marxist/DSA Democrat Leftists continue to push Transgenderism on our young... What's wrong with this picture?

Well, there's a lot of stuff that needs to be explained here.

This is ONLY for people who have a VALID TEST RESULT.

So, transgenders who don't fuck around with needles or sex are NOT going to be a part of this study.

People who go for a HIV test do so FOR A REASON.

So, 42% of people who are transgender and went to get a HIV test, have HIV.

What's the percentage for heterosexual people?

Who knows? Do they report such statistics? If not, then it's hard to compare.
Heterosexual people have far far lower incidents of HIV babe........homosexuals are known to engage in more risky behavior and have higher incidents of drug abuse. But among their worse characteristics for getting HIV---anal sex (because the membranes in the butt are thinner) spread the virus much much easier than hetero sex especially for the male involved. Decades later and so many still don't understand how HIV is passed around.

Maybe they do. That's not the point.

The point here is to understand what the article is saying. This is usually the biggest hurdle. People will just assume that 42% of transgenders have HIV. Not so, the article doesn't say this.

The title says this, and the title is just plain wrong. You'd expect a paper like The Hill to be better than that.

The issue with transgender people might be related more to mental issues.


"
Why Transgender People Experience More Mental Health Issues"

" While approximately 6.7 percent of the general U.S. population suffers from depression and 18 percent grapple with some iteration of an anxiety disorder, nearly half of all individuals who identify as transgender experience these issues. What's more, over 41 percent of trans men and women are estimated to have attempted suicide — a rate that's nearly nine times as high as the rate of cisgender Americans. "


What makes someone go through such an operation? Gay people can often struggle and deal with what society looks upon as "abnormal", many can find communities where they're not looked down upon.

But those who have to deal with this AND mental problems are liable to go to extremes. Those who do go to extremes might then end up doing things that aren't good for them.

They don't often get the help they need from society, especially those people who'd use such an article to bash people to make themselves feel better.
Turtlesoup has a good point--you can't deny it ....this adds evidence to the OP .....it's right here:
''''''GAY AND BISEXUAL MEN ARE THE POPULATION MOST DISPROPORTIONATELY AFFECTED BY HIV IN THE UNITED STATES''''

Maybe they are.

That's not the point. The point is that this article's title is misleading. You have to understand what you're looking at. And perhaps you have to understand the causes too.
ok, the study gives the numbers..I give the numbers....and you don't give anything except your opinion/etc ''understand the causes''' = ??? = nothing

Yeah, the study is a bad study because it only shows a limited section of a community.

So, it's pointless.

Why do I need anything? This is your argument, is it even an argument? I'm not sure what it is, but either way, it's based on bad science.
.!!! you haven't refuted the OP/etc
facts are bad science?

Well, I'm not going to keep talking with you about an issue that you can't deal with.

I still get confused. Is a "transgender woman" a woman who transgendered to be a man or a man who transgendered to be a woman?

4 in 10 transgender women in seven major US cities have HIV: CDC
4 in 10 transgender women in seven major US cities have HIV: CDC (msn.com)
15 Apr 2021 ~~ By Justine Coleman
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday released a report that determined 4 in 10 transgender women in seven major U.S. cities have HIV, which the agency said signaled a need to focus HIV prevention and treatment among the demographic.
The study conducted in 2019 and early 2020 found that 42 percent of 1,608 transgender women across Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle with a valid test result had HIV.
