Actually, you got made out to be a homophobe by your statement that gay people are promiscuous by nature. Which you now seem to be qualifying like crazy.
I love how when you say something, it's our fault for pointing it out.
but don't get all holier than thou the next homosexual rights thread appears on this board. If your legitmately concerned abotu the health, safety and well being of homosexuals then this issue should weigh heavily on your minds.
I'm concerned about STDs for anyone. It's why I promote safe sex education whenever possible.
It's also why I think it's foolish and dangerous to assume that AIDS is a gay problem.
Ya know i see it like this. Men, "by nature", are more promiscious then women, particularly young men.
You've been meeting the wrong women.
An amazing fact... women like sex as much as men. Assuming the men do it right.
it makes perfect sense that gay men are more promiscious, as a whole, than hetero men. Basically for lack of willing partners.
I'm curious as to where the gay men in question are finding all these willing partners. I mean... I think we agreed a while back to (or at least compromised on) the idea that homosexuals amount to roughly 5% of the population.
Presumably, the gay men in question would be sleeping with other gay men. Which would be... what, 2.5% of the people they meet?
Of course, if you go to a gay bar that's a total meat market, everyone's a potential willing partner. Just as, if you go to a straight bar that's a total meat market, every girl you meet is going to be a potential willing partner. And whether in a meat market bar, or just meeting people day by day, straight girls outnumber gay men by a VERY large number.
The virus originally ravaged the gay community such that it was initially called Homosexual Associated Immune Deficiency Virus for a time.
And now, as far as worldwide statistics go, it is a disease which predominantly strikes heterosexuals. Does this mean that heterosexuals are now more promiscuous than homosexuals?
I'm aware that the virus spreads more rapidly thru anal sex, but even still, one would think that percentage of hetero men to gay men would have been much more equitable than it was.
Actually, it's that the disease is much easier to catch from semen than it is from vaginal fluid. So no, the percentage wouldn't have been equitable.
To me, that it swept thru the gay community with such vigor, while for years seeming to spare heterosexuals, speaks directly to the vast amount of promiscuity that must have been present.
At that time, in that specific culture, yeah. Probably. And this speaks to the nature of homosexuals how?
which in turn leads me to the conclusion that there was promiscuity far and above what one would term "normal, youth related, promiscuity" at play there.
You know, Steve... I'm not a stud horse by any means. In my life, I've had sex with less than a dozen women... hardly the Wilt Chamberlain of the Chicago scene.
Of course, each of those women has had sex with about the same number of guys. And it's safe to assume that each of their partners had about the same number.
What's the old line? Six degrees of seperation between everyone on the planet? And we've all had sex with roughly twice that number?
The idea that it takes rampant promiscuity to spread STDs is another foolish and dangerous idea. All it takes is sex without protection. It doesn't discriminate based on sexuality or promiscuity.
