The Game

Closeted Gays Spread AIDS

9/8/2011 10:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

090811_thegame_video2Rapper The Game believes closeted gay men are spreading AIDS by "fooling" women into having sex with them.

Game just gave an interview to VLADTV -- saying he doesn't have a problem with most gay people -- just the ones who are "pretending" not to be gay and sleeping with women.

Game says, "The #1 issue with that is you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die ... and that s**t 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."

Game seems to be saying that all closeted gay men have AIDS ... and he wants them to come out of the closet in a Scarlet Letter sort of a way -- so people know to avoid them unless they want to get AIDS.

Here's a novel thought...people that have unprotected sex with partners that haven't been checked spread aids. It amazes me that, in this day and age, with the amount of awareness that we have on this subject, so many people still have unprotected sex REGULARLY!

Actually, what he is saying is quite true but it's only part of the story. The same thing happens when men sleep around with other women. So whether they are closeted Gay men or Bisexual or Straight men, it's men screwing around and not wearing condoms that spreads HIV.

When I worked in the ER in downtown Toronto, we used to give out condoms to the young male prostitutes so they'd be safe. At 4pm when the downtown offices let out, the men (pretenders, posers, whatever you want to call em) would pick up the male prostitutes to screw and then head home to their wives and families in the suburbs. If the young male prostitutes would have to be the ones who had the condoms cause these posers didn't have em. Don't F****n tell me men (of all sorts) don't spread HIV because HELL YES THEY DO!

I bet this sounded better in his head. Sadly not everyone is ghetto trash out here outside his head.

Ok.... 1. Don't refer to yourself in the third person... you sound ridiculous. 2. I think that letting gay people be gay is very "in" right now, so he's trying to validate a popular idea with nonsense. 3. He also seems more concerned with getting AIDS from a straight girl who slept with a gay man.... sounds like a coverup.

AIDS = Gay >>>Wrong
gay = AIDS >>>Wrong

People are made of flesh and blood and people get diseases. People have hearts and minds and fall in love. People are people. His ignorance is simply ignorance. Hopefully, he'll get a clue... and so will the rest of the world.

he's not far off from the truth. down low black men is the #1 reason why black women are the top rising group infected with HIV/AIDs. Homophobia in the black community causes these black men to stay in the closet and live double lives. ppl need to be reminded that condoms are for more than stoping someone from getting pregnant.

I'm sure by saying this, Game knows some gay dudes with AIDS giving it to women. For people getting all pissed off, just don't let Game run your life and make your decisions, you'll be fine...unless you're f**king a gay dude with AIDS - then I'm sure you're just pissed he didn't say it sooner.

part of the culture of being on the down low is not to use protection while having sex with other men. I'm sorry it doesn't sound all that PC but, we can't discredit the man when he has a point. this dangerous behavior does cause the spread of HIV/AIDs.

Jayceon Taylor, please learn that no ones cares. You haven't been relevant in rap since, what, 2004? If you want to be taken seriously, stop acting like a retarded gang banger, take that stupid LA tattoo off your face and get a clue.

So these gay guys are "fooling" women into having sex with them? Makes total sense, most gay guys I know LOVE having sex with women. Dumb ass should kill himself already.

I think that The Game didn't articulate his argument very well. The behaviors associated with some closeted gay behavior does occasionally involve unsafe sex. This unsafe sex leads to an increased risk of STD to all parties involved. This behavior can be said in fully heterosexual relationships as well.

I'm sorry, gays aren't the only ones with AIDS anymore. Please do some research on the disease and "the gays" before you open your ingorant mouth again. Thanks.

He must have been watching an Oprah rerun. She did a show on black men on the down low. And I think it also had a segment about how those same men are spreading AIDS and STDs to women. Or something like that.

He is very wrong on his view! I do believe that it's up to an idividual to make sure they know the person they are sleeping with are free off STDs. How do you do that? You both go to a doctor and have all STDS checked and once given a clean bill of health you may stop using the condom and only when in a committed relationship otherwise use condoms all the time. I bet all of the people who have posted here do not know their HIV status or have never been tested. (and remember you cannot go by another person's test result..you have to have your own blood tested).Just because you look healthy and feel healthy that does not mean you are ok. You may have the virus and not know until you end up in the hospital (which could be up to 10 years). Go get tested and get educated. I wrote a college paper(Last semester) on HIV treatment and i learnt a lot about the disease. Education is Key to everything.
