By posting facts about a dangerous infection being spread by a group of people that don't care about their own lives much less the general publics makes me
"discriminatory" and "bigotted" your logic is skewed.

Let the facts speak for themselves.

Facts are facts, even though you don't like the teacher.

Discrimination? No - just run the other way from this dangerous group of people
Abuse of the word, "stigmatized."

Bot - Look up the meaning. I did... It applies in this situation.

Stigma (social) - a "mark of infamy or disgrace; sign of moral blemish; stain or reproach caused by dishonorable conduct; reproachful characterization" (Webster)

Homosexual AIDS is not JUST a homosexual problem. Don't you know that?
When their numbers go up (because they refuse to engage in safe sex)
the general populations does also. So... the "mind your own business" phrase
does not apply here.

By which mechanism? Do you feel at risk of being anally raped by a homosexual man? Are you that unable to defend yourself in the very unlikely event? The only other explanation is that you don't trust yourself maybe after you've had a few Pink Gins.;-)

I would argue that only people who are homosexual are able to feel stigmatized by the homosexual orientation. For example, I am straight and I am not at all stigmatized by a gay lifestyle. There are probably some straight people somewhere who believe that their straightness is stigmatizing, but they aren't stigmatized by the gay lifestyle.

Perhaps you mean to say, "homosexual love" or "homosexual intercourse" or "PDA's among homosexuals"? Those don't stigmatize me, either.

I'm having a difficult time figuring out how, "most Americans are still stigmatized by GAY LIFESTYLE."

BTW, what is a "gay lifestyle"? Matching curtains? An enviably large shoe collection?

PDA's among homosexuals? They are stimatized because they carry Blackberrys?Now I'm really confused.
