Keep teaching abstinence-only sex ed. That totally prepares students for the real consequences of unprotected sex. You can't argue with results, and the results here are that if you have unprotected sex, you'll get AIDS and die. So you need to tell them not to have sex to save them from hellfire and damnation.

No one who understands anything about the South and its culture and politics should be surprised by this.

Even individual locations that are dominated by liberals haven't discovered an effective way to insulate themselves from THE SUCK that is the South.

B-b-but, subby, that doesn't make any sense! I remember back when Jerry Falwell told Ted Koppel that AIDs was God's punishment for the homosexuals. If there are more AIDs cases in the South, then it must be because of all the gay-loving liberals who've moved down here to take all our good-paying jobs... and our guns.

I blame the bible and all the bullsh*t and hypocrisy about sin. TFA states that 3/4 of those infected are black women, and the men have to keep their activity on the down low. You can't be seen buying rubbers in a small town, no sir.

Right, and I'm saying that it's fitting that the real phrase (not your words) is grammatically incorrect. Shall is first person only if I'm not mistaken. "I shall" and "we shall."

Not slamming you. Relax.

"Overcome"? How dare you use such vulgar language! Germanic based words are only for the common people

The proper Latin word would be "prevail"

Black people deserve to die because they don't know they're infected or cant afford the tests and many are pushed underground because of homophobia and bigotry and you want to find faster ways to kill them.

And this is awesome news to you.

shouldn't we charge the parents and teachers with attempted murder for teaching "just say no" and "abstinence only"?
In the very least, we should charged them with neglect.

Don't you know? Everybody in the south is white. Also, they are all Bible-thumping rednecks. Every one of them.

fark. I'm in the South. I guess I should've known those warts on my ass are because of AIDS and not because I had sex with a toad. Don't worry the toad thing was just an experiment and in the end the toad and I walked away from it with a completely new understanding of each other's species. Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife and hide yo' toads.

a thread full of RFTAs. surprise.

". Rates are especially high for gay black men in the South; a 2011 study by researchers at the Florida Department of Health calculated that one in five were infected with HIV. "
 
2012-07-20 08:09:30 PM  
It's all good, Truvada just got FDA approval for use as HIV prophylaxis. We can just put it in the water down there!

...And then maybe we'll see a wave of antiviral resistance and the specter of SuperAIDS will finally be a reality.

...And maybe then we can finally be rid of the South forever. Some would say that unleashing SuperAIDS is a small price to pay for such a boon!

Don't you get it? THERE ARE NO BLACK PEOPLE IN THE SOUTH. THERE ARE ALSO NO GAY PEOPLE. EVERYBODY IS A WHITE RIGHT WING EVANGELICAL THAT'S FOR ABSTINENCE ONLY EDUCATION. namatad and me both know this because we have the Internet and we're all smrt and stuff.

There's nothing wrong with placing an article in front of the nouns when speaking. That's how many other languages work. But I say, if you're going to do it, you've got to do it consistently, before each and every noun.

In the fact, the I am going to continue doing the this for the rest of the evening.
