Well, I don't usually like to bring this up, but I think I may be able to offer some perspective here, seeing how I'm a homo myself. This dude is
right about the life expectancy. First off, HIV is everywhere. I mean everywhere. Seems like half the homosexual men I know have it and of the half
that don't, half of them have it and just don't know it (slight exaggeration to get the point across). There's this Don't Ask Don't Tell thing
going on regarding hiv and if someone doesn't slap their sex partner in the face and say "I have AIDS so use a condom with me" then they just
won't have safer sex. There's also a sub culture of BB- barebackers- good old fashioned raw (unsafe) sex. Lots of guys I know will ONLY bb.
Secondly, drug use is rampant in the gay community. Mind boggling rampant. GHB, crystal meth ( aka: tina) take a toll on the body. PNP- party 'n
I've been to many many funeral services for otherwise healthy young men who basically partied themselves to death. The most difficult was my lover.
He had been out of rehab and sober for 4 years, then I come home late from work one night to find him on the floor, dead. Overdose. Turns out that
his "best friend" (total drug head user/ loser who I could never get to leave us alone for long) brought over the party supplies and then bailed
when things went bad and just left him there.
So basically, yeah, the truth hurts. But from my experiences this dude is pretty much spot on. I'm sure he and I disagree over the causes of
homosexuality, how it relates to religion, etc, etc, but honestly I'm not offended by what he said. Actually, I respect him for being a man and
stating his opinion on the matter, whether we agree or disagree, at least we know where each other stands.
