    I never said that he shows hatred....but he and others like him are no different from those who wanted to relegate Blacks to the theater balcony.

    Its the same mindset that they are "entitled" to rights/privileges but somehow feel justified in denying those same rights/privileges to others.
    They feel "justified" in throwing a Domestic Partnership bone and saying....you should feel lucky....but don't think that you can sit at our table or drink from our drinking fountains.

    Do they make up a majority of the actual cases? Do you know that for sure?

    Gay men are less than 5% of the population, probably less than that. Their rate of infection would have to be 20 times that of the hetero population for them to have more actual cases.

    Today, although there are more high-risk groups, MSM still account for around two-thirds of HIV diagnoses among male adults and adolescents.

    Thanks for the link. I looked around and couldn't find the data.

    As a matter of full disclosure, those statistics are for the United States only, not world wide.

    World wide, I believe the last stats I saw indicated that Africans, understandably, had the highest rates of transmission followed by Brazil.

    Yeah, I'd be very confident in guessing that the majority of cases in Africa are hetero only. There's just too many of them.

    Well that and you have a savage, cromagnon population that believes raping virgins will cure you of AIDS.

    I am of a firm conviction that the epidemic there is simply a tool of nature to cull the herd.

    What kind would that be? Sure, I'm bigoted against dark age beliefs like rape curing disease.

    And I'm ok with that.

    That is the point I was making because some people were trying to equate race to homosexuality which is a false argument since you cannot prove it is genetic. Got it now?

    If you can't answer my simple challenge to you don't bother linking to theoretical arguments.
    You remind me of creationists. No real evidence for your idea, you just think complaining about other theories will make your ideas relevant. One of us has provided source material, one of us has not. One of us has shown exactly what they claimed, which is that the "causes" of sexual orientation are debated, one just claims that he is right because, well, because he is.
