These homo supporters know how to make you feel guilty and ashamed by shouting insults .
I just laugh at them... lol.
The National Crime Victimization Survey estimated that 500,000 sexual assaults occurred in the U.S. from 1992 to 1993.
However, male sexual assault has nothing to do with the sexual orientation of the attacker or the victim, just as a sexual assault does not make the victim survivor gay, bisexual or heterosexual. It is a violent crime that affects heterosexual men as much as gay men. The phrase "homosexual rape," for instance, which is often used by uninformed persons to designate male-male rape, camouflages the fact that the majority of the rapists are not generally homosexual (Donaldson, 1990).

there are many many many things the rainbow symbolises, gay rights being the latest one....
Are you saying that anal sex is no more dangerous than heterosexual sex? Is gay sex, in itself, an unsafe sexual act?
It simply reflects that Gay men in THIS country engage in unsafe sexual acts more often then other demographics. Sexuality has very little to do with the transmission of STDs, unless it is accompanied by an underlying social effect.
The numbers I used were the complete total for 2009 for 40 states. Their best estimate is to add another 15% or so to cover the other states. But, I completely agree that it doesn't explain why. Is it wrong to offer hypotheses? I don't have facts (That's why I'm asking for help.), but does a gay man have sex with more partners than a straight man? (I don't mean to offend, but I'm tired of typing the long word.) Is anal sex more conducive to transmission than vaginal? Are gay men less likely to use condoms?
I was responding to the comment that the CDC states that HIV is more common in Gay men. The Link I provided show that even though the sample the CDC is using for it's evaluation doesn't show the entire picture and doesn't illustrate the cause of the HIV balance being tilted towards the Gay male community in this country.
This confuses me completelyBecause I don't know what gays and lesbians are supposed to be choosing, unless you're simply saying that a conclusion is reached without a cause. If that's the case, we can go back to my hypotheses (or yours, if you have any).
The CDC's statement standing alone is just like saying "A lot of Gays and lesbians drive Subaru's" and leaving out the fact that Subaru was the first Auto maker to market directly to the LGBT community and the first to offer Domestic partner benefits. It doesn't show the cause of the result, just the result.
