So the ‘recreational activity’ of smoking is proven to increase the chances of getting lung cancer.
This fact has liberals ardently wishing and campaigning for the state-enforced banning of all smoking, anywhere and everywhere. (Here I differ from the standard conservative, in that I support the phasing out of all smoking as it contains addictive substances – no fundamental difference from drugs.)
Meanwhile, the ‘recreational activity’ of male-male homosexuality is the cause of HIV infection for 72% of males (27,455 individuals surveyed), contributing to the HIV infection rate being highest among gay men – 60 times greater than for the general population. It doesn’t help that many of them intentionally try and get/spread infections.
And much much more:
22 percent—the increase in new infections among gay and bisexual men in the United States from 2008 to 2010.
Homosexual and bisexual men account for 75 percent of syphilis.
78 percent of all new HIV infections are among males, primarily homosexuals.
Over 25 percent of all HIV infections in the United States are among young males ages 13 to 24.
The Journal of Sex Research reports, “Although heterosexuals outnumber homosexuals by a ratio of at least 20 to 1, homosexual pedophiles commit about one-third of the total number of child sex offenses.”
Psychological Reports and the International Journal of Epidemiology reported the same findings: Homosexuals have a 20-year-shorter lifespan.
It’s not a mystery why the FDA bans homosexual male blood donations or why so many homosexuals suffer from what is medically known as gay bowel syndrome and herpes lesions in the mouth.
Depending on the source, homosexual men have a mean lifetime number of sexual partners falling anywhere between 250 to 500.
But you’d be hard pressed to find a liberal who advocates restrictions on casual, multi-partner, unprotected sodomy – let alone state-enforced laws! – despite the very real potential for a massive health crisis.
(Smoking doesn’t even kill other people, with the debatable caveat of secondhand smoke, but compared to first-hand AIDS…)
PPS. And domestic violence 3000% greater, cheating 19 times higher, 85% of partnerings don’t last past 11 years… With 45% of lesbians receiving violence and 30% sexual assault – by other women. And this is probably way under-reported because of a fear of making the community look bad.
If I were more crude, I’d have snazzed up the title of this post with that double-meaning word that applies to both ciggies and gay men.
