For some ridiculously offensive reason, The Game recently spoke out about closeted gay men, and claimed that they're the reason AIDS is spreading!
"The #1 issue with that is you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die … and that shit spreads because that girl you might be fooling might leave you and go find another dude who ain't gay and give him the disease."
Oh, is that right? Because all closeted gay men have AIDS?
And that's how it's being spread? Not by drug use or ANYONE having unprotected sex carrying the virus, right?
This is the EXACT kind of ignorance that perpetuates unfair stereotypes and HATE - and it's NOT TRUE.
Unfortunately, the reality is that AIDS is not JUST a 'gay disease' - ANYONE can contract it, which is why it's important that EVERYONE protect themselves when having sex!
