Point 2 is true, if you remake it into "There is a SMALL subculture composed of homosexual men that fetishizes the deliberate infecting of one's self and others with HIV."
It's disturbing, but true. They call themselves "Bug Chasers", and from there google is your friend.
Otherwise: Nuts. Complete moonbattery. Man that joke is getting old, but still.

I read about the afterlife
And what if the people got it from their parents after being born? Is that their fault? No.

There is a small group of heterosexual people who fantasize about raping baby animals. Does that mean all heterosexuals are monsters who fantasize about raping baby animals?

And to be fair...they don't "fetishize" it easier. I've heard it said as, essentially, you're rolling the dice any time you have sex with someone (Gay or straight, Gregory, dearest...) and in some cases, see infection as a virtual inevitability, so might as well get it over with, and have the ability to bareback, and not worry about those pesky condoms messing up your sex, either. Horribly, horribly irresponsible, but yeah.
Now that said, I heard about this ages ago, and I may be a bit off, but...yeah. Hardly a fetish, and more an effort in pragmatism gone horribly, horribly south.
And also, Gregory...what about the people that were raped and got HIV as a result? And the ones who were born with it? And the ones who got it from blood transfusions? They deserve no sympathy?
8/20/2009 9:31:44 PM
But the heterosexuals who get AIDS didn't right?
8/20/2009 10:17:52 PM
I see you're just as obnoxious as the South Park character.

1. We have known since 1984 how AIDS is transmitted. The people who caught it prior to 1984 are dead. If people get AIDS from sex or sharing needles, they are responsible for their own condition.
You're a freaking idiot. Some people get AIDS from blood transfusions, and babies are born with AIDS because their mothers had it. Nurses have gotten it from working with patients. And yes, it's stupid to have unprotected sex or share needles, but do you also feel no sympathy for people who tanned and got skin cancer?
2. There is a part of the Homosexual subculture that fetishizes the deliberate infecting of one's self and others with HIV.
That's a very small group of people, and the rest of the gay culture looks down on them for being dumb.

The sad part is, while both of Gregory's first point sounds morally reprehensible and both points are phrased in a somewhat misleading way, nothing he has said is technically untrue (though an argument could be made against sentence 3 of point 1). :(
8/20/2009 11:09:20 PM
Bullshit. Pass the Febreeze.
8/21/2009 12:38:22 AM
2 - a very, very small part, that is looked down on by everyone else.
8/21/2009 12:50:09 AM
As much as I hate to admit it, this stuff is true. This guy could be less of a dick about it, though. Almost everyone who gets infected with HIV anymore, does so because they don't practice basic caution.
I still feel bad for them and they do deserve care simply for the reason they are human like you or I.
8/21/2009 12:57:47 AM
What about the children who got it from their parents or the people who got the wrong transfusion or during a medical procedure?. I thought that you KNEW how AIDS is transmitted. Well, when I saw the second one, I thought, maybe not that well.
8/21/2009 1:17:31 AM
Somebody spray that blog with some anti-hurrr.
8/21/2009 2:33:23 AM
Unfortunately I have read that, with a few demented individuals, the second part is true.
8/21/2009 3:09:03 AM
hmmm, moonbattery rhymes with asshattery, interesting coincidence.
8/21/2009 5:58:18 AM
Gregory of Yardale, I declare you unfit to carry any sympathy and compassion.
8/21/2009 5:59:51 AM
Disturbingly true, but still, could've been phrased better.
8/21/2009 6:05:29 AM
"There is a part of the Homosexual subculture that fetishizes the deliberate infecting of one's self and others with HIV. "
There's been a grand total of about 2 cases of this actually happening, (in fact, I think one of them was straight anyway), and both got put away for a very long time. It's hardly an epidemic.
8/21/2009 6:23:31 AM
Ah, yes, that very small self-hating sect of gay men, the gift-givers and bug-chasers. Wanna know why they hate themselves enough to do something like that? Bigots like you putting them down, thus you are a more active participant in that subculture than the average gay man.
8/21/2009 6:30:44 AM
Hm, I have to agree with his comments insofar as dangerous behavior (unprotected sex, neeldes sharing) will incrase your risk of getting AIDS.
But of course 1. also applies to heterosexuals.
As for 2., there are also heterosexuals who do such a thing, I know of an infected woman who would even go so far as to try to persuade men, not to use condomes for sex with with her. I´m not sure however if infected heterosexuals who deliberately spread AIDS also form some kind of subculture among heterosexuals. But at least they exist...arse holeness is independent from sexuality ;)
8/21/2009 6:35:32 AM
I can just feel that Christian compassion. Just like Jesus with the woman taken in sin (fucking). Jesus said: "Give me the first stone to bash this harlot over the head".
Yeah, well... I've been reading too much of what fundies say.
8/21/2009 6:45:17 AM
And I guess people who got it from infected blood transfusions, accidental needle sticks, or babies born with it are just some of God's collateral damage?
And I've heard heterosexual males in the past say that if they got HIV they'd go have unprotected sex with as many people as they could in order to spread it around, so it's not limited to homosexuals.
8/21/2009 7:32:23 AM
If people get AIDS from sex or sharing needles, they are responsible for their own condition.
And if they contract HIV unintentionally?
There is a part of the Homosexual subculture that fetishizes the deliberate infecting of one's self and others with HIV.
True, but those people can be prosecuted for homicide if not assault at the least.
8/21/2009 8:18:50 AM
2. There is a part of the heterosexual subculture that fetishizes amputees. This has occasionally reached the point where people have amputated their own limbs because they find it sexy.
Weird self-destructive fetishes are present outside of homosexuality.
