New Study Reveals That One In Five Gay Men In The USA Is HIV Positive!!!!!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GaySad Sad

This is extremely alarming news.

A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that tested over 8,000 people in 21 cities, found that one in FIVE gay men in the United States has HIV, and almost half of those who carry the virus are unaware that they are infected.

According to the study, the risk is highest among young, sexually active men and minority groups because they are least likely to know their health status, while the rate has fallen for heterosexuals and intravenous drug users.

Kevin Fenton, the director of National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention says:

"This study's message is clear: HIV exacts a devastating toll on men who have sex with men in America's major cities, and yet far too many of those who are infected don't know it."

Unbelievable.

Please, guys!

This is a truly frightening statistic!

    Didn't you just rip on a guy for stating these very statistics and called him a homophobe? Wowww….



  2. 2

    Shit. =/



  3. 3

    HOPEFULLY YOU ARE ONE OF THEM



  4. 4

    ENOUGH! ENOUGH ALREADY!!
    This site should be called GAY NEWS.com because that is all you ever post these days. Do you realize that people hate, and are beginning to hate this site because of your views? I mean seriously, do you even remotely get it?
    WE COME HERE FOR CELEBRITY NEWS YOU IMBECILE! Give us some on occasion.



  5. 5

    Ok first you're on a crusade to save gay youth, now you're just gonna scare them into suicide again with stuff like this.



  6. 6

    rubbers are for not getting your mistress pregnant!



  7. 7

    I guess this shows that guys are not supposed to be putting their weiners into other men. Say no to the Doo Doo Hole.



  8. 8

    I hate to sound like an "old foggie" but so many young people (gay and straight) do not seem very concerned about safe sex, aids, and other stds. They need to damn well listen up!



  9. 9

    This should not surprise anyone. Men are generally more promiscuous than women, and seeing as gay people in most part are men… Well, you do the math.
    As long as they keep it between themselves. The big danger is bi-sexuals who could spread HIV to women…



  10. 10

    EVERYBODY - gay, straight, bi, whatever - needs to stop sleeping around so fu**ing much. Condoms help, but they aren't full proof. I'm not conservative or a prude by any means, but people have sex and jump from partner to partner like it's nothing. Maybe if everybody spent a little more time focusing on themselves instead of getting laid, we'd all be healthier and happier.



  11. 11

    While this is alarming and more education is required to teach young gay men about safe sex, statistics can never be relied on to make such a sweeping statement as this, especially in a Country as large as America. I also feel that you could have chosen your timing better to post this, given your recent posts about the tragic deaths of young people as a result of homophobic bullying. I feel that repeating "statistics" such as this so soon after the other posts does nothing but perpetuate the myth that we are all sexually promiscuous deviants! Rant over!



  12. 12

    are you among them perez lol lol



  13. 13

    – or do as Perez.. get ugly, so you don't practice at all..



  14. 14

    This just proves what we have known for a long time but GLAD has siad is false and tried to squash anyone who said otherwise. AIDS IS A GAY MALE DISEASE not a heterosexual disease. We should stop wasting so much on research as they refere to having it as the RED BADGE OF COURAGE, and something to be proud of.

  15. free says – reply to this


    15

    Don't forget that one of the largest growing group of seropositive people in the US is heterosexual young women in large cities such as New York, Washington, Miami, Atlanta and LA. The way it looks nog (again) is that AIDS is a gay disease, which is not true anymore. Everybody should play safe!!! For recent actual figures about new HIV infections grouped by country, check out www.avert.org



  16. 16

    this is helping your case.

    truly sad. i guess we a need the little morals and values some girls still have and guys could never. lol ( i shouldnt be lol'ing)



  17. 17

    it's not only about practicing safe sex (regardless of your sexual orientation) but also getting yearly, if not semi-annual check ups.



  18. 18

    sad … but it's good to remind people of the reality and the need for safe sex…. also to remind men that have sex with men that this is the reason for the hurdles in giving blood - your honesty is required on those forms so that others are safe (it is not to discriminate - it's being real) … no one thinks that they're ever wrong in their knowledge (especially about themselves) the reality is that it is very likely, 1 in 5 … so sad



  19. 19

    Thats a good start.



  20. 20

    Re: Lady_Saccharine_Sweetness – Perez you recently in favor of criminalizing people with hiv who do not disclose their status. The reason the virus is spread is partly because people are afraid to get tested because of the stigma and discrimination attached to it. So, no surprise here that one in 5 gay men are hiv and that almost half of them are not aware they have the virus. Time to change your thinking Perez.



  21. 21

    Good to encourage gay people to use condoms… on the contrary a lot of heterosexuals use condoms to avoid pregnancy otherwise they might not too !



  22. 22

    Ewww…



  23. 23

    Where has your head been, ostrich-boy? Hidden in Lady Gargoyle's ass, I think. By the way, aren't these statistics somehow homophobic, pig-vomit?



  24. 24

    Make you think about back in the early 80s when HIV was called GRID



  25. 25

    Re: Wild-Guitar – IMO I don't think it's not that they aren't concerned - they just think they're invincible because "it could never happen to me!" - I recall that age and so greatly wish I didn't have my head up my ass…………



  26. 26

    A while ago you were supporting criminalizing people with hiv who do not disclose their status. This sort of mentality leads to increased stigma and discrimination. Thus, people are reluctant to get tested and the virus continues to spread. Again, I suggest you re-think your position on this Perez and promote one of acceptance, not treating those with hiv as criminals.



  27. 27

    The problem is young gay men don't remember the pandemic of the 80s & 90s when AIDs was a death sentence. Now with advances in treatment it's seen as s terminal illness and they seem to have to attitude "well it's just a pill" w/o realizing it still takes a toll on the body, complicates Heath issues and is extremely expensive. Even more alarming is the fact the a substantial portion of the gay black community frowns upon safe sex. With so many men on the "down-low" infection rates for black women are also increasing bc of these men. Just wrap your shit up guys, this is preventible!!!!!



  28. 28

    WHY SO SURPRISED?



  29. 29

    How about:

    STOP FUCKING MEN YOU MEET AT CLUBS IN BATHROOM STALLS.

    I haven't met a gay guy NOT to do this. That's why there's so much aids… it's promiscuity. Practice safe sex…. IN A MONOGAMOUS RELATIONSHIP. Don't whore around!



  30. 30

    BTW… You can't JUST wrap your shit up. STOP sleeping with fucking strangers!! Who knows WHAT they have. Have sex with someone you trust and hopefully love.



  31. 31

    My Perezcious is not at all comfortable with these "Germs of Enrearment".



  32. 32

    …Or you know just be abstinent. Since that actually works.



  33. 33

    I agree with j1981h, but I also think they should know the truth and get tested.



  34. 34

    When men find out they are HIV positive they start to lose EVERYTHING and end up in ABSOLUTE HORRIFYING POVERTY….then they spread the disease from the misery of having NOTHING!



  35. 35

    Why do disabled people on Social Security/Veterans/SSI have to live in ABSOLUTE HORRIFYING POVERTY & treated like the scum of the earth?



  36. 36

    All who are bashing this site b/c it represents gays etc… ummm the person who created this site is GAY… why come to a site created by a GAY man and expect to read about everything non-GAY… IDIOTS… once again OMG Perez what are we to do… haha.. I love this site Perez is great a little over the top at times, but hey that's how gay men are and I love them for that. Everyone who is involved in same sex relations need to know these statistics etc. everyone needs to know it's preventable… These statistics arent to scare the gay community it's to make them aware of how serious HIV/AIDS really is.



  37. 37

    Re: SoVerySickofU
    why don't you just start your own site instead of bitching - Oh thats right cause nobody would care - stick to what you do best then - bitch on bitch !



  38. 38

    Are you seriously shocked by this statistic?
    Anal sex has a higher risk of spreading HIV

    We've known this for YEARS perez.
    the number will just get higher.



  39. 39

    so many people are hating on the fact that Perez is spreading the word about being WISE. people's personal sexual preference should not be the business of others. unless a gay individual is beating down your door trying to rape you, leave them alone and let them be. they have some of the same health hardships as any other individual.

    love is love; it is gender and sexuality blind. if you can't accept someone for who they are, then may karma be upon your soul.



  40. 40

    I don't understand why the CDC has to "get the message out". How dumb are you to sleep around with numerous ppl without a condom, and think the only result is a good time??
    That's like funding a campaign to warn people about the dangers of swinging from power lines.

    …on another note…I don't put my hands in the garbage can without gloves, yet gay men literally stick things in a hole solely for excretion of waste…



  41. 41

    um.. as a straight female this does make sense to me
    my friends and I chat about how guys are in general..
    guys ask, "are you on the pill, because i don't like condoms"
    so many people think condoms are just for pregnancy
    since gay men can not get pregnant, I'm sure that less use condoms
    when will young people learn to be more safe??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  42. 42

    ps.. thanks for not listening to the morons who tell you what to write about.. i'm glad this blog covers celeb news as well as current concerns like civil rights



  43. 43

    If gay men would stop sleeping with everyone it wouldn't be nearly as bad. Most don't like long term relationships and would rather screw a variety, hence the results.

    People are really getting tired of you pushing your "gay agenda". Isn't this suppose to be an "entertainment" site?? By constantly shoving this in our faces…you have done the opposite of what you intended to do…it has backfired. The majority of people really don't give a damn about gay men and could care less if they get aids.



  45. 45

    SERIOUSLY… Perhaps try abstinence???? It worked for me, n now I'm married and don't have to worry about AIDS AHAHAHAHAAA



  46. 46

    If you're going to bash all gay people for being diseased, you should bash the elderly as well. The rate of STD infection amongst the elderly has been skyrocketing lately. I guess that means being old is inherently wrong and depraved. Turns out that people take the threat of fertility much more seriously than they take the threat of disease.



  47. 47

    You should be saying PRACTICE MONOGAMY. You want marriage rights, right? You should be shouting about practicing MONOGAMY.
    Asshole.

    Or they are in total denial Perez, like a lot of men are“` gay or straight. They be thinking with “““ the wrong head most of the time.



  49. 49

    1. Using a condom is not "SAFE SEX" it is having SAFER sex per the CDC. Which means its safer to use a condom then not to.
    2. "Safe sex"= "Sex with one uninfected individual who is faithful to you for the rest of your life" (CDC) That is a BIG difference from what you normally promote Perez. It is abstinence/delayed sexual expression & monogamy that will ensure a person's safety–NOT condoms.
    3. As someone who lectures at high schools and college's on STI contraction & trends, I can assure you that it has ALWAYS been well known that anal sex either hetero or homo is the riskiest behavior for contracting HIV. Hence why the UNOS (United Network for Organ Sharing) automatically disqualify gay males from donating organs because of their highest risk for HIV & other diseases.

    Lord have mercy!



  51. 51

    Re: Wrenn – no people are really gettin sick of people like you bitching.. if you don't like the blog go eleswhere.. as you can see this post has many replies.. PEOPLE are obviously interested



  52. 52

    HIGH-larious! The best part is, for once, you can't blame hetrosexuals for your problems. You've got no one to blame but yourselves.



  53. 53

    Re: Wenchtits – And straight men don't sleep around? Wake up. Infection rates for women is increasing too in certain demographics



  54. 54

    If only getting the HIV were as scary as it once were, people would better protect themselves. People are more worried about getting the goddamn flu than they are of getting AIDS these days.



  55. 55

    yeah, i know gay guys who get pissed off when straight people quote statistics on gays having high rates of AIDS …

    Good to see you owning up to the truth of the situation…theres no point living life with your head in the sand and denying reality. ignorance is not bliss.

    and being politically correct has damaged peoples brains to the point where they dont want to hear the truth anymore..its stupid. so, refreshing to see you stating the truth and educating people, for a change.

    Re: RubbinIsRacin

    You are a fucking fool.



  57. 57

    THEY GET WHAT THEY DESERVE!!!
    NATURE HAS THANK GOD FOUND A NATURAL WAY TO GET RID OF THE REAL VIRUS…..GAYS!!!
    YOU WILL ALL BURN IN HELL FOR THIS INSANE DIRTY BEHAVIOR!!
    PEREZ, STOP THE FUCKING GAY PROPAGANDA…..!!
    DONT MARKET A MENTALL SICKESS!



  58. 58

    Re: Wild-Guitar – So true. Nobody in my town likes to use condoms.



  59. 59

    God's way of saying people shouldnt be having gay sex! :)



  60. 60

    Perez, get ur ass down to the clinic and get tested ASAP! Ur butthole is a incubus of viral plague.



  61. 61

    Lucky for you not even gay men want to have sex with you, Perez.



  62. 62

    You fruits just refuse to use condoms when butt banging huh? AIDS is completely avoidable. Unless as you have the bad luck to get a transfusion from gay tainted blood. You just don't catch AIDS walking down the street. You need to be a fruit or a junkie. Both of which are completely useless. So stop crying about how sad it is and stop causing yourselves to get the disease. Oh right. You can't. Just gotta stick that dick where it don't belong.



  63. 63

    Re: SoVerySickofU – He's aware people hate him. But that's the trick, even though people hate him they will ALWAYS come back here, which generates more popularity (regardless if people come on here because they like/hate him), which is obviously what anybody with a website would want…DUH!



  64. 64

    Re: mickeydeee – that'd make sense if no one straight has aids but omg guess what?



  65. 65

    Re: truthabove – If you hate gays so much then you are obviously frequenting the wrong website.



  66. 66

    Re: Apple1289 – because truth above is a fuckin whack job.. you should read what he wrote about that shit on the michigan student..
    this crazy person claims to have a phd in homosexuality and he rants and raves about how 90% of doctors recognize homosexuality as a metal disease..
    lol.. wow these crazy nutjobs really come out of the woodwork don't they??



  67. 67

    Perez will never have HIV, he needs to get someone in bed with him first.
