    No. You missed the argument made to begin with, which was that there was a public health concern in the transmission of AIDS, and that this was due to homosexuality. Go back and check the post progression that started this.

    Certainly you agree that (at least in this country) the vast majority of new cases of AIDS are due to irresponsible behavior among men who engage in sex with other men?

    What about the spread of syphlis and gonnorhea?

    This is complete bull since most of those in Africa who have AIDS/HIV are heterosexuals and even the CDC confirms that everyone is at risk for HIV. So don't pretend the CDC agrees with you or confirms these claims, they don't.

    CDC - Who's at Risk for HIV? - HIV/AIDS

    While infections are lower among women, those women are pretty much all straight and most got it from unsafe sex with men.

    Which has nothing to do with same sex marriage nor truly homosexuality. Heck, pushing for marriage indicates a desire to settle down which in itself lessens a person's chances of contracting HIV so long as neither had it entering into the marriage and they are monogamous. Now, I'm sure that someone will say "well homosexuals aren't monogamous". Not only is this not true about all homosexuals, but it also is based on studies done prior to marriage being legal for them. Also, it doesn't take into account that even in between, there is some protection being in marriage from the increased drive many have to protect their spouse, even from themselves.

    Well we're not talking about Africa now are we? I was referring to the US and western societies, and it is a FACT, incontrovertible that if you stay away from homos and intravenous drug use, you have a statistically zero chance of getting HIV if you're a heterosexual, PERIOD!

    Unsafe sex with men who have had sex with other men. Homosexual sexual behavior still remains as one of the high risk factors for HIV/AIDS. Although, I'd imagine with the apparent upswing in heterosexual anal sex in the last generation heteroes are catching up.
