Yesterday, FOTM’s Trail Dust did a post on homosexual activists bringing pressure on the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to end the 30-year-old blanket ban on blood donations from gay and bisexual men. The reason for the FDA’s policy is, of course, to prevent sodomites from transmitting the HIV-AIDS virus to recipients of blood transfusion.
Today, we have the latest findings from the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to substantiate why the FDA must continue the ban and not succumb to political pressure. More than 6 out of every 10 U.S. men (62%) who report being HIV-positive said they had unprotected anal sex with a male partner in the last year.
Sodomites call unprotected (no condom) anal sex “bareback,” as in riding a horse bareback, without a saddle. Whee! Such fun!
Benjamin Fearnow reports for CBS Atlanta, Dec. 3, 2013, that the Centers for Disease Control report, “HIV Testing and Risk Behaviors Among Gay, Bisexual and Other Men who have Sex with Men,” noted that the population of men having sex with men (MSM) is a small proportion of the US population; however, this group represents the majority of people diagnosed with HIV.
In 2011, men who had sex with men accounted for at least half of persons diagnosed with HIV in all but two states. Anal sex is cited by the CDC as having the highest-risk practice for HIV infection.
“High HIV prevalence, lack of awareness of HIV-positive status, and unprotected anal sex” between gay, bisexual and other men are cited by the CDC as contributing to continued new infections among this population.
However, only 67% of sexually active MSM reported getting an HIV test in the past year.
Unprotected anal sex among MSM increased from 2005 to 2011, and in 2011 one-third of HIV-positive MSM who did not know if they were infected reported unprotected sex with a partner who said they were HIV-negative or did not know either.
The researchers wrote that “Sexually active MSM should be tested at least annually for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Sexually active MSM can take steps to make sex safer such as choosing less risky behaviors, using condoms consistently and correctly if they have vaginal or anal sex, reducing the number of sex partners, and if HIV-positive, letting potential sex partners know their status.”
If you care about the integrity of America’s blood supply (you never know when you or a loved one will need a blood transfusion), tell the FDA to keep its present policy banning homosexuals from donating blood.
