    Here's something you should do.

    In regards to almost everything you discuss whether it be this, or climate change or whatever.

    Don't talk about things you don't actually understand and have no knowledge about.

    You are a monument to ignorance.

    Many get AIDS through error or ignorance as well as those who could have been more responsible. It has done great harm and much effort has gone into dealing with the challenge.

    This is a DISCUSSION board and your rudeness to sawyer is neither appropriate or helpful.

    Your thoughts are not only wrong, but disgusting if you are trying to make the claim that 100's of thousands of my countrymen deserve to die because of something you THINK they did but don't actually know.

    You're an insult to intelligence.

    Sawyer...that is not true anymore...infants are being born with aids...women and men get aids through having heterosexual relationships with people they CARE ABOUT and dont know they have aids...and who may not know themselves they have contracted aids...look..

    Looking for cures for PREVENTABLE diseases is nothing new....Syphyllis was a preventable disease and they worked on it and cured it...this is not hing new...

    I know there are some innocent victims of AID's but they are very small percentage. Why not concentrate on diseases like childhood Leukemia, Parkinson's MS etc. There are only so many research dollars and minds to go around so why not get the most bang for your buck. AID's should be at the bottom of the list not the top.

    How about concentrating on all of them...seriously if your child or grandchild got aids or childhood leukemia...would you value their life less if it was aids ?

    The sad reality is there are only so many dollars to go around, you have to prioritize.

    So you would be willing to throw your child away because you think theres a need to priortize our dollars for curing diseases...Sawyer, I dont know what to think about how you think.

    A substantial number of people with HIV... don't know they have it. Nor do they know their partners have it. It's an epidemic, regardless of any backwards notions of sexual morality. Here's a scenario. One partner gets HIV from a cheating spouse. Tell me exactly why that person should be disregarded? No one's plight should be abandoned because sex makes some people uncomfortable.
    Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.

    If it were my child I would spend my last dollar but in the big picture society has to prioritize. Dollars are not limitless and when you spend so much money on AID's you take it from other diseases that are not preventable. Look at a little kid with Leukemia then look at some promiscuous gay needle sharing drug addict and then you tell me how our limited dollars are better spent.
