Yes but has done nothing to change the sick behavior such as cruising public parks and restrooms in search of gay sex with strangers.

And has done nothing to stop the rampant widespread epidemic of HIV/AIDS, drug abuse and hepatitis in the gay male community.

Obviously, someone told you that heterosexuals never have sex with strangers, do drugs, or get and spread diseases.

Let me tell you a little secret....he lied to you.

Str8 men are constantly cruising in public...and in a harassing way. The bulk of deaths from HIV/AIDS have been amongst heterosexuals.

How lucky to have the self hating, closet issue homophobe use a racist slur as part of the bargain, thus proving the old adage, "scratch a homophobe, find a racist."

Homophobes don't want to hear the facts....it goes against their "blame everything on the gays" mindset.

And you are quite right....homophobes are usually also racists.

You can't seem to get out of Pretend Land. The bulk of deaths from AIDS has been amongst gays in this country, a country where education is mandatory. How did you evade school?

Disproportionately amongst heterosexual females in Africa to the tune of scores of millions. No numbers absolute or proportionate to that in this country.

The disproportionate bulk of AIDS deaths have been amongst heterosexuals regardless of where you're coming from, which is a dank, deranged place.

Men who have sex with men in Western countries have been hit hard but the AIDS deaths are higher overall for heterosexuals even when you figure in the numbers of men who have sex with men in the global population relative to the str8 population.

Find some other basis on which to try and defame homosexuality, a thing which exists worldwide.

No matter how many times you keep repeating yourself it still doesn't change the fact that in the US. and most other countries for that matter, HIV/AIDS is much higher among gay men than any other group.

AIDS is overwhelmingly a deadly disease of heterosexuals, and disproportionately so.

Are you stumblingly trying to say that you only defame US lgbt persons?

Are you trying to say that homosexuality is okay when it's outside the US? You're only anti gay when you're in the US, but you're not anti gay on your (homo)sex tourism jaunts abroad?

I think "homosexuality" and "heterosexuality" exist worldwide. And worldwide heterosexuals are disproportionately afflicted and killed by HIV/AIDS, to the tune of score of millions of deaths.

You better start defaming heterosexuality in Africa along with homosexuality in the US....

That's not factual. AIDS deaths in Africa in absolute numbers run about 20 times AIDS deaths in the US. The ratio of str8 people to gay men is not 20 to 1. Heterosexuals are the most affected (killed by) AIDS, in percentage terms.

You have psychosexual problems is all.

He's not trying to say anything. He said it. No one needs to defame homosexuality because you queers defame yourselves better than anyone else could possibly hope to do.

And the truth about HIV/AIDS among gay men isn't defamation it's just the truth.

What does that have to do with the topic of this thread? Nothing.

And what does that have to do with the fact that in the US and most other countries worldwide the rates of HIV/AIDS are astronomically higher among gay males than any other demographic? Nothing.

You're trying to change the subject because you can't refute the facts concerning the rates of HIV/AIDS among gay males and that makes you mad.

Except you're buybull lying because AIDS is much more pronounced in percentage terms amongst heterosexuals.

That's not to defame heterosexuality, of course....

Why don't you just come out and say that you think African lives don't count?
