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.

Yet again TMZ is putting words into people's mouths. The Game is RIGHT. Some times when people are in denial about being gay, they don't "protect" themselves. And whether your a male or female, you present the risk of spreading a disease to someone. And people who are out of the closet choose not to protect themselves either, so it goes both ways. His intentions were there but it just came out wrong. Everyone is ready to jump down someone throat if they don't agree. Really? Get over it. If people would be protecting themselves and the AIDS/HIV was at a all time low, this wouldn't be an issue now would it? Doesn't matter if your gay or straight, GET YOURSELF CHECKED BEFORE YOU DECIDED TO HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX AND TELL YOUR PARTNER TO DO THE SAME.

ALSO DON'T SHARE NEEDLES FOR GOD SAKES. As far as our technology has come and you still want to risk getting HIV or Hep C? Really? C'mon people. Put a rubber on and get clean needles and wake the F%^& UP!

If "The Game" is interested in not getting AIDS, how about wearing a condom and getting tested after 6 months. Oh wait, he doesn't want to wear one. Just like the bisexual guys who are sleeping with men and women...The Game is a hypocrite.

I don't think that Game is saying that all gay men have HIV. He should have said the closeted men that are also positive are the reason for HIV being passed along so much. There are so many on the DL men out there and they are def contributing to the high rise in women getting HIV. It is a circle like he said for sure. I in no way think that he meant all gay men. One thing that I do know after living with a HIV roommate for over a year, many ppl do not tell ppl that they are positive and there are alot of homo thugs or "straight" men that play with other men.

Use your brain    

Some of you people are dumb as door knobs! He is not saying that closeted gay people have Aids. He is simply speaking on his dislike of men who pretend to be heterosexual and sleep with women, when they are truly homosexual. He didn't say anything about bisexuals. Basically, be true to who you are. If you are gay, be honest about it. And yes, that is how some women are contracting the Hiv virus. It is easier to contract from a man than it is a woman. Do your research people, USE YOUR BRAIN!!!!

And here we go!!! Does anyone notice that the last paragraph is all TMZ and It is TMZ who says or makes a little maneuver by say 'IT SEEMS THE GAME IS SAYING ALL GAY MEN IN THE CLOSET' TMZ is assuming if not downright lying.The Game does not say ALL , he says that it is his belief it is gay men who stay in the closet who may pass Aids because they stay in the closet and keep it to themselves. I compare it to women who had to go into back allys to get an abortion and would not get proper care as a result many of these girls whould die from unsanitary care and such.Meaning by men feeling they need to be hiding it you do not get tested properly. But it is definate that TMZ assumes that last paragraph, he never said what TMZ wrote.

File that lawsuit, I am Lindsay Lohan!    

I actually know a woman whose husband infected her of aids because he was having affairs with other men, he didn't want to be seen as gay. He has a bf and was cheating on his bf with yet another guy, and infected all parties involved.

All he is trying to say, although, I don't think it comes out the right way, is that be proud of who you are and don't mess up a woman's life just because society dictates that a man should be with a woman. That is what I got from all of this, I don't think he expressed it well. No big deal anyways imo.

"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."

Wow. Really? That's not at all what he said. I don't know what's worse: that TMZ would print such ridiculous sensationalist nonsense, twisting someone's words and putting words in said person's mouth to make them look bad... or that the majority of readers seem to agree with TMZ because apparently they either can't read, think properly, or simply didn't bother to watch the actual video.

He is right because on the DL gay guys don't consider themselves gay so they don't ever think they can get Aids and they are already s*** for not truthfully sharing their sexuality with their female partners. I discovered my boyfriend was with men and so did one of my friends and there are 100's of men on Craigslist on the men for men section who say they are "straight" but they are cruising for gay sex.

This is one of those situations where you just shake your head because their is belief in something that isn't right based on a belief that isn't right (three or four deep)
I vaguely remember people beleiving that junk in the 80's

ok, what I got from all of this, he isn't saying all gay men are just spreading AIDS, he is referring to the men who are married on the DL because they don't want their image tarnished by coming out as BI or *gasps* GAY!!

I actually know two guys who are married to women and they are secret lovers and neither of the wives know about their husband's infidelities. These two men have actually made their wives friends so they could have excuses to be with each other without raising suspicions. Their kids are even friends as well. They have gone as far as take vacations together for their enjoyment, the two families together. I do feel bad for the wives because they deserve a man who would love them. And once again, the wives have no clue about it.
So yeah, he isn't putting down the gay community, he is just stating his opinion about a subject. Check out Craigslist men4men is full of "straight" men who are married looking for affairs with other men, I don't know any hetero men who would be looking for sex with gay or bi men. oh, and yeah they don't use condoms either when together, how do I know all of this? Because they told me themselves.
