By Their Fruits You Shall Know Them
Why is this not exactly a surprise?

WARNING! Harsh Language Alert.

Here is a none too unexpected article from the California Catholic Daily; (Emphasis and comments mine) “Heavy toll”
CDC says HIV, syphilis astronomically higher in men who have sex with men

A data analysis released March 10 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention underscores the disproportionate impact of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men in the United States.

The data, presented at CDC's 2010 National STD Prevention Conference, finds that the rate of new HIV diagnoses among men who have sex with men (MSM) is more than 44 times that of other men and more than 40 times that of women.

The rate of primary and secondary syphilis among MSM is more than 46 times that of other men and more than 71 times that of women, the analysis says.

"While the heavy toll of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men has been long recognized, this analysis shows just how stark the health disparities are between this and other populations," said Kevin Fenton, M.D., director of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. "It is clear that we will not be able to stop the U.S. HIV epidemic until every affected community, along with health officials nationwide, prioritize the needs of gay and bisexual men with HIV prevention efforts."
(Juuuuuuust maybe if they stop screwing each other in the ass... that might be a good starting point.)

Research shows that a range of complex factors contribute to the high rates of HIV and syphilis among gay and bisexual men. These factors include high prevalence of HIV and other STDs among MSM, which increases the risk of disease exposure, and limited access to prevention services. Other factors are complacency about HIV risk, particularly among young gay and bisexual men; difficulty of consistently maintaining safe behaviors with every sexual encounter over the course of a lifetime; and lack of awareness of syphilis symptoms and how it can be transmitted (e.g., oral sex). Additionally, factors such as homophobia and stigma can prevent MSM from seeking prevention, testing, and treatment services. (In other words - worship of the Sacred Orgasm. These deviants have no problem playing Penis Roulette. That is until they've contracted a deadly disease, then it's "Ohhhhh, poor lil' fairy! This isn't your fault!" Spare me this bullshit.)

Also, the risk of HIV transmission through receptive anal sex is much greater than the risk of transmission via other sexual activities, and some gay and bisexual men are relying on prevention strategies that may be less effective than consistent condom use.

"There is no single or simple solution for reducing HIV and syphilis rates among gay and bisexual men," said Fenton. "We need intensified prevention efforts that are as diverse as the gay community itself.
(And there you go. The obvious is unrecognizable to these fools. They're still attempting to legitimize 2+2=5.)

And this must be an example of all that "Gay Pride" I've been hearing about. Since when is referring to yourselves as a 'sluts' been something to be proud of? Golly gee, is it really that much of a shocker when someone celebrates being a slut comes down with a deadly disease?

The terms, homosexual men and bisexual men are redundant statements. Bisexual = homosexual. Homosexual men have been having sex with women, making babies with them, and even marrying women for thousands of years.

If I said I was a transgendered lesbian -- a woman trapped in a man's body and sexually attracted to women -- I could be a darling to the MSM. Who could prove me wrong?
