Okay, that's good! U2D had me 'worried' for a moment.
Yesss, besides being an anti-Gay Gay (which =is= crazy), it was reported that J. Edgar was also a bit crayzee. I don't know about that but it is Gayly confirmed that he did do "drag", too! "She" must have looked like a pink elephant!

AIDS transcends sexual orientation!

M.F. Wannabe:
U-2-D was correctly quoting a perjorative and misleading term that was widely used throughout the 1980s to ludicrously "blame" Gay people for AIDS. That's analogous to "blaming" heterosexuals for Gays! Most everyone -- except, I guess, U -- knows that AIDS is now mostly prevalent among heterosexuals. There are endless worldwide statistics backing up that fact. We all agree, I trust, that AIDS is a horrible and unforntunate disease for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation.

It's not going to work, you're speaking to someone who still thinks "gays caused Aids."

AIDS!

Firstly, let's lower the ignorance: It's "AIDS", not "aids". It's an acronym for Acquired Immune Deficiency Disease not a synonym for medical assistants.

Secondly, actually, I wasn't speaking 2 U, trust me.

Lastly, there are people who believe that AIDS was caused by men having sex with monkeys. There are others who believe AIDS was caused by that Republican airline pilot who flew back and forth to Haiti. And, yes, some no doubt think that AIDS was conceived from anal sex started in a men's room stall after a BONO concert. Your ignorant comment is clearly an intended deep insult to the namesake of this site: BONO, who has done so much to help against AIDS, educate for prevention and fight the stigma of AIDS. Shame on U! It's obvious from prior posts throughout this board that virtually and fortunately no one here cares what U think -- especially on this subject!

A proverb, however, does come to mind: "The lady doth protest too much".

HIV isn't solely spread through sexual contact
Transfusions, birth, and what else?

I don't know the percentages, but it's got to be at least 90/10. It's definitely considered a STD is it not?

I did say that heterosexuals are also responsible. Didn't you read my post?

Yes I misspelled it, thanks for the spelling lesson. And I know who you were speaking to. I wasn't speaking for myself in that post. That's why it's in quotes.

The Romanian intelligence cheif said as much about a year back, the fish was playing too many games of find the pickle with his body guards and wound up with a new ailment. Frankly the only thing that really matters here is that if Arafat is discredited completely among the Palestinians the appeal of a new style of leadership could go up.

ummm, "The Sunday Times" is a Perth newspaper ie where I'm from. Here it's referred to as "The Sundry Slimes". I can't bear to read whatever it is you have linked.

I can't believe you can read this stuff from all the way over there.

Welcome to the internet. How embarrasment

I'm not really back. I'm just horrified that our local rag is cracking a mention on the internet.

I guess thats the draw back. Anyone can publish anything on the internet and anyone can read it

PS I'm fine.
