The HIV/AIDS epidemic began early in 1981. The month July of that year, the New York Times reported an outbreak of a rare form of cancer among gay men in New York and California. This "gay cancer" as it was called at the time was later identified as Kaposi's Sarcoma, a disease that later became the face of AIDS. But as you will see everything is not as it seems.
When the Centers for Disease Control reported the new outbreak they called it "GRID" (gay-related immune deficiency), stigmatizing the gay community as carriers of this deadly disease. Then there were cases that started to be seen in heterosexuals, drug addicts, and people who received blood transfusions, proving the virus/disease knew no boundaries. Now, it's no longer a so=called "GRID", the disease doesn't have any boundaries, or favorite group of people it attacks with illness.
HIV/AIDS here longer than 25 years???
HIV/AIDS is being said to be 25 years old, but it has been reported to be here longer than that.It is believed that the syndrome[AIDS] has been around far longer. In 1959, a man residing in Africa died of a mysterious illness. Only decades later, after examining some blood samples taken from that man, was it confirmed that he actually died from complications related to an HIV infection.
Now the question is how it enter in America? The fact is gays have already been here in America, so that base-less assumption is ridiculous and bizarre! Some researchers say a immigrant from another country may have brought it into the country?
So where did HIV/AIDS come from and it's origins? Experts have concluded that HIV has it origins in the jungles of Africa among wild chimps. Experts go on to report that evidence suggests that the simian form of HIV (SIV) entered the human species and became HIV by way of monkey bites or ingesting monkey meat and brains. While the origins of HIV are more clear,the thing is pointing fingers at the gay community, and saying that community is the source, has no research or evidence to back that hypothesis up. It is NO theory! Which brings me to address a certain blogger: The Captain
He says:WHY WOULD ANYONE EMBRACE A LIFESTYLE THAT WILL MORE THAN LIKELY HAND YOU A DEATH SENTENCE IN BEING INFECTED WITH HIV/AIDS?
Justice MH: Well, why would anyone embrace the lifestyle of a heterosexual, drug addict, or get a blood transfusion that can give HIV/AIDS? You see, your ignorance is no longer amusing, but pathetic , and just plain sad. Do you ask heterosexual this question? Oh yeah, you keep pointing fingers at the gay community. Well its thinking like that which enables the disease to spread if everyone is NOT making sure their behaviors are safe. Since putting the information in the early eighties that it was a white gay male disease: heterosexuals both black and white, also black gays believe this, and didn't take caution in their own behaviors. Like Queer kid of Color says: Responsibility is prevention of HIV/AIDS.
He gave another comment without a comment forum, what a coward:It is amazing how homosexuals glamorize the gay lifestyle as something wonderful and grand when in reality, HIV/AIDS is the core of the gay community. I hear various gay activists trying to shift the focus of HIV/AIDS away from the gay community so they won't look like the culprits, but unfortunately people know the real truth. Now, the epidemic have spreaded in our heterosexual community, all to the thanks of the gay community.
If God really created and blessed homosexuality as an orientation that is acceptable and worthwhile then we wouldn't have sorrow and death. I don't care how many ways you try to slice and dice to justify homosexuality is right, if it was, then HIV/AIDS would not be killing our men and women off due to an filthy and perverse sexual choice, which is the largest driver of this infection growth. If sorrow comes with it, God never blessed it!
Justice MH: This whole comment is simply bias, ignorant, and full of mean-spirited as usual! No one that I know of is trying to shift the focus of HIV/AIDS, but it's not a gay thing. Culprits??? We have nothing to hide, and we're blame-less, so say what you want. What real truth is this? A bull-shitted truth. The heterosexual community started their own infection rate, unless their sleeping with gay males. It takes two to tangle, not a population of people with a different sexual orientation. God created homosexuality and it's blessed, no-matter how much you and other use narrow bible interpretations, a book that known to have errors, contradictions, and inconsistencies. Homosexuality has always been right, it's just those like you and sects of religions that try to prove it's wrong, and trying to use a imperfect holy books as a mouth piece for God. It's your only tool to make your opinions and views as facts. Which their not. Heterosexuals already have high rate base around the world, so is that a perverse sexual choice? Using HIV/AIDS as your argument is very poor in reason. It's your view that God never bless it, and it's bless regardless of what you say. So in the word of my friend and a woman I admire: Kiss off!
Remember everyone be responsible, and safe in this epidemic.
