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.

Not everyone is as brave as "the game" - most guys don't have the balls to get an ice cream cone tattooed on their face to let women know they're gay!

If they are closeted gays they don't want to have sex with women. I*****ay man knows he has aids I doubt having sex with a woman would be the first thing on his to do list.

@ Least Game had the balls to stand up for what is right. The wisdom of the world is foolishness. That's why more people agree with negative,destructive behavior. Why call him out instead of the ones actually DOING wrong?

I did hear someplace recently that Bi-sexual men where spreading aids more often than other sexual orientations. Might have been in Wash,DC?

Say what you will about the messenger but he's correct. Unfortunately, the TMZ staffer who wrote this piece is even more hyperbolic than The Game. He didn't say all closeted gays have AIDS or need to come out in a scarlet letter type way. But I 100% agree that gays shouldn't mislead straight partners, especially when it comes to sex. Like it or not, gays are considered high risk for AIDS and it is ridiculous to criticize someone for saying a high risk person should not disclose that to their partner. The same goes for straight IV drug users and whores. I*****irl is a hooker and gets involved with a guy, I think he deserves to know that from a safety point of view. There, feel better now? Geez, grow some thick skin already...

This is one of those 'He Meant Well' moments that ended up total face palm.

And somehow everyone at TMZ failed to point out that Women have AIDS as well. That it's not a biased disease.

The full context of the interview was about closeted homosexuals in hip-hop, specifically people he's worked with in the past:

I agree that the assumption that because someone is gay they have aids is homophobic and voted ridiculous. However, I think the context of this matters.

The practice of bisexual men on the "down low" having unprotected sex with their female partner as well as their male partner is partially to blame for the rise in heterosexual transmission of HIV, especially in women of color. Without disclosure of sexual practices and without the use of safer sex practices, this trend is certain to continue.

I can see where the is coming from on this topic now if he would clear up the part that all gay people have aids then he might be going somewhere.
