    Wrong.

    Saying something is a risk factor denotes risk. Hence the name, "Risk Factor."

    So then would you agree that homosexuality being defined as marriage is not something under the equal protection clause?

    So, tell us, tex, would a heterosexual who has unsafe anal sex be more at risk to contract HIV?

    : something that increases risk or susceptibility


    Question: What is a risk factor?

    Answer: A risk factor is something that increases your chances of getting a disease. Sometimes, this risk comes from something you do. For example, smoking increases your chances of developing colon cancer. Therefore, smoking is a risk factor for colon cancer.


    A risk factor is something that's likely to increase the chances that a particular event will occur.

    Definition

    Measurable characteristic or element, a change in which can affect the value of an asset, such as exchange rate, interest rate, and market price.



    5 definitions of risk factor and not a single one having the word "cause" anywhere in them.


    Not that you'll admit your mistake of course. Its really for others to see. Might want to rethink Taylor's suggestion.


    And of course you still haven't answered my question but such is life

    More self-pwnage, tex. Thank you. You just proved Taylor and you wrong. Here, I'll highlight the important part:

    All behavior. Things "you do". Things that are "measurable characteristics". You can do unsafe sex. You can do anal sex. You can't do homosexual orientation. You can measure if someone has anal or unsafe sex. You cannot measure is some has a homosexual orientation. It's a state of being, not a behavior. Risk factors are behaviors, as stated in your definition.

    Perhaps you should post BOTH sides of this argument. You're doing a great job for the pro- side.

    Wrong. saying something is a risk factor denotes behavioral cause. Check tex's definition. It proves you wrong, too.

    I have answered the question. I also answered it earlier in this thread. I would guess that homosexuals practice anal sex more often than heterosexuals. Now, this does not draw the conclusion that you want it to.

    When you answer mine I will answer yours.
    So... answer it.

    You apparently missed the word "sometimes" in the section you highlighted.

    How embarrassing.

    I never actually said pretty much any of that. I'm not really sure how you derived it from what I actually said.

    I never said any of that either.



    So, anyone have a better explanation for why a Fox News poll of more than 300,000 voters came out with the vast majority in favor of overturning Prop 8? Or a similar Fox poll showing the vast majority voting for the "Tea Party is racist" option?
    Unless we're going to say that most Fox viewers/readers are liberal or something.

    Nice try again CC. There is no cause anywhere in any definition you have in front of you. None.

    To pretend anal sex is not a measurable characteristic of gay men when it is their primary sexual position when having sex is really amusing if not so painfaully sad. Since on average gay men DO have sex and when they do it IS anal sex and they being the group that practices it the most it is a risk factor NOT a cause.

    Thats why risk factor doesn't have cause anywhere in its defintion. You've lost that argument pages ago yet you still hang onto it. Amazing.
