AIDS is a terrible disease, but unlike something like cancer, it's almost entirely behavior-related. If you don't sleep around, engage in homosexual sex, and you don't use intravenous drugs, you're very unlikely to contract the disease.

Hopefully they find a cure for this virus one day.

a) A fair number of people got it through transfusions.
b) Anyone can get it by sleeping with a single person. That's hardly sleeping around.

Ok, I guess. So you guys are puritans and believe that you should basically save yourself for marriage?

Is the common cold also behavior-related? After all, if you keep to yourself, wash obsessively, wear a mask, etc. you're very unlikely to catch a cold.

Let's not exaggerate the facts. Surely you can put aside your natural defensiveness and look at the actual numbers.

I couldn't imagine a more impossibly useless way to combat a disease. Hey, instead of spending our money on research, let's make a giant quilt, pay to haul it around the world, pay to keep it in a climate controlled warehouse, pay for assemblies and all the other hidden bullshiat costs associated with a 5000 pound blanket. I'm sure those that died of AIDS are looking up from Hell and screaming, "WHY AREN'T YOU FINDING A CURE?! WHO THE fark NEEDS A BLANKET WHEN YOU SWEAT ALL THE TIME?!" If dumb ideas cured disease, then AIDS would've disappeared the moment the guy pulled his cock out of the monkey.

Here's the cure...well it's more of a vaccine...

1) Don't stick yourself with an unfamiliar needle
2) Don't receive an infected load of semen up the ass
3) I can't think of a 3

It's like the most preventable disease there is. Why is it even still prevalent in this country? Why isn't there a pancreatic cancer quilt?

There's an entire subculture within the gay community built around barebacking and people who identify as 'bug chasers'.

Probably the most level-headed post you'll ever see about barebacking: Is "Dawson's 20 Load Weekend" the Most Important Gay Film Ever Made (pops, probably SFW if your boss isn't a complete douche-nozzle)

The infection rates were headed down sharply then bush happend and schools had to teach sex ed without condoms and infection rates have climbd for kids that were in high school from 2010-2008. There was an article on the main page last week that danced around the reason that 21-28 year olds have been getting infected at twice the rate that the same age group was 10 years ago and why the infection rate for people over 30 is still headed down
 
2012-07-25 05:05:21 PM
1) Teach kids about condoms and the truth about aids
2) Quit shaming people into having anonymous sex in a restroom or across that library table that is just high enough to be comfortable to lean on and with the lamp that is very pretty.
3) Put the spotlight on "Down Low" relationships. Teach women how to protect themselves in this instance.
4) Get tested. Make your partners get tested. If you're open with your family members about their sexual activities, make sure they're getting tested.

The rates of new infections will start decreasing again. I was working the desk at a youth health facility once and one girl asked me if it was true that a person could cut themselves and let the aids bleed out of them. She'd been told this by her parents and her church. The girl was, I think, a sophomore or junior in high school.

AIDS isn't the witchcraft it used to be, but for some reason it's not okay to educate about the disease anymore.

Old people are a high risk vector now. At one point they were higher than teh gheys but through education at old folks home it is dropping.

Well the gays gave it to Andy Dick who gave it to the bisexuals who gave it to the heterosexuals and the old people didn't figure they needed to use condoms....

The basic reason is because when they started the quilt, the Reagan administration was doing their best to ignore the disease. It was a way of visually quantifying just how many people had died in an era where there wasn't enough funding for research because nobody wanted to do anything.

Hey thanks! I actually went public in 1998 did the gambit of speaking circles, talk shows, papers all that jazz. Started a not for profit to help positive kids and teens. We ran a drop in center and a week long sleep away camp for 10 years. Funding dried up for the drop in center, but we got so good at running camp we do it on 10k for 20 kids. No paid staff in my org, sadly we never grew like I dreamed.

Was thinking of hitting the speakers circle again when I hit 30 to raise funds and try to inspire other infected peers. Its really rare for anyone to be born positive but it does still happen. It's fascinating to watch the differences in progression between a behavior and a perinattaly infection - the body that grows up with it seems to adapt to living with it.
