    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I see what you're saying. I'm not sure one can come to that conclusion, though. It still wouldn't have spread throughout the hetero community as fast as the gay community, numbers-wise. Once it got there, it would explode and, after this length of time, there probably wouldn't be too much difference than the stats today. That's my opinion on it, anyhow.

    Anytime someone tells you something you don't want to hear, you respond with "prove it".

    Your lack of common knowledge, basic civics and concepts in U.S. Government isn't our problem. It's yours. Deal with it or get off the boards.

    Tim, don't go there. I've been here long enough to know there are two things you don't do here at Debate Politics. And I don't do 'em. You got to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em.

The overwhelming majority of infections in Africa are from male to female relationships. Does that mean that heterosexuals are a risk factor for HIV? No. Promiscuity is. I'm tired of your silly word games now.
    I'm not sure you understand his point but am pretty confident you don't understand what a risk factor is. A risk factor implies no causal relationship. In what you quoted, Hicup did not claim that "homsexuality itself" causes HIV.

    Homosexuality itself isn't a risk factor. Homosexual acts may be, not always though.

    Whether or not that is true, saying you believe homosexuality is a risk factor does not imply that you believe there is a causal connection.

    In order to be a factor, it would have to have some causal relationship. Otherwise, by definition, it would not be a factor.
