ditto what Indra said.

seems as if the support of homosexuality and the combating of AIDS are nearly one and the same.

make no mistake: homophobia kills.

Those who practice homosexuality tend to extract HIV more often.

You are so full of shit. Homosexuals are no longer the highest statistic in contracting HIV in this world. Please educate yourself.

Would you say a homosexual is more or less likely to extract HIV than a heterosexual?

Did you not read my post? Plus lesbians are the least likely next to virgins so there goes that theory.

You didn't respond to my post. If I, an American living in the states, were to practice homosexuality do you think I'd be more or less likely to extract HIV?

And lesbians and condoms don't have much in common.

No and you didn't specify you said homosexuals.

Are you serious? You're telling me that you honestly believe a homosexual man is no more likely to extract HIV than a straight man???

And , yeah sorry, I didn't specify that I was referring to men.

Can't find any numbers that just deal with America right now, but the world as a whole NO. And if I'm not mistaken HIV is a worldwide threat.

I'm afraid these are the facts:

Among men diagnosed with AIDS in the United States in 1996, male-to-male sexual contact accounted for the largest proportion of cases (50 percent), followed by injection drug use (23 percent).

Although...

Heterosexual transmission accounts for an increasing proportion of AIDS cases in the United States. From 1985 to 1995, the proportion of U.S. AIDS cases attributed to heterosexual transmission grew from 2.5 percent to 15.1 percent.


Sources:

http://www.healthsquare.com/aids_stats.htm

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. HIV/AIDS Surveillance Report, 1996;8(no.2):1-40.

Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention: Surveillance Branch, Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention, National Center for HIV Infection, STD, and TB Prevention. Unpublished data, March 1997.


Note: Latest sources indicate that among men, 59% of cases are from male-to-male sexual contact.

Still, the world would be a better place if we promote any possible measures to prevent the disease from spreading.

True, I do agree that no matter what, we should promote the use of condoms.
