I havent mentioned anything about Ugandas Evangelical-driven quest to kill homosexuals.
I figured that you dont really need to have my expertise in HIV-1 to recognize that these people are fucking psycho.
But, it doesnt take a whole lot of effort for me to demonstrate that on a scientific level, these people are wrong (not surprising since its religious nuts fueling this fire, and they think the universe began 6000 years ago and believe in talking snakes and shit)– killing every homosexual in Uganda would have little effect on HIV-1 infections/deaths.
Anyway, heres the deal.
Percentage of HIV-1(+) who are children (0-14): 13.8%
Teenage women infected with HIV-1 (15-19 years old): 2.6%
Teenage men infected with HIV-1 (15-19 years old): 0.3%
Young women infected with HIV-1 (20-24 years old): 6.3%
Young men infected with HIV-1 (20-24 years old): 2.4%
Percentage of HIV-1(+) adults who are women: 59%
Percentage of female sex workers who are HIV-1(+): 47.2%-60%
Homosexual men have nothing to do with all those babies/little kids being infected. The young ones were infected in the womb or during birth, from their HIV-1(+) mom. Homosexual men have nothing to do with all those young girls/women being infected with HIV-1. Why arent arent boys of the same age being infected, if its all teh homoz fault? Homosexual men have nothing to do with the fact that the majority of HIV-1 infections are in women. Homosexual men have nothing to do with the fact that if you go to a prostitute in Uganda, you have a 50/50 chance that prostitute is infected. Why the hell would a gay man pay for sex with a woman?
Homosexual men dont really factor into the HIV-1 problem in Uganda. The fact that homosexual men were the first to be hit with HIV-1 in the US is really just a side-effect of a random founder event, nothing more. Technically, if the ‘straight’ population were infected first, being gay would have been ‘protective’ from HIV-1 infection for a while. *shrug*
How do you think allllll these girls/women are being infected with HIV-1?
If we are going for a ‘scientific’ justification for killing a class of people in Uganda to prevent the spread of HIV-1, they need to kill heterosexual men, especially the ones visiting prostitutes. Theyre the ones spreading the disease.
I mean, if youre going to do genocide, you should at least do it ‘right’, right?
Unless, of course, preventing HIV-1 infections has nothing to do with your decision, as you just want to kill a group of people and HIV-1 is a convenient scape-goat to justify your inhuman behavior.
